    Sweet. OT I’m looking forward to your “Live by Night” review in the near future (if you plan such a thing). Because I wonder if “critics” hate it, because it’s not good enough… or not “PC” enough.

  • when Gareth moved back to the UK, he said it was kind of his way of closing the chapter on The Raid series. Meaning there’s a good chance there won’t be a part 3. Now that I see that this is being released as The Raid Collection furthers that assumption from me.

    Here’s a link to the interview which is very short:

    OH! I almost forgot. Here’s an alternate opening footage from ‘Beyond Skyline’ starring Iko Uwais & Frank Grillo:

      Damn, I didn’t know that, I thought he was planning a third one.

    Doesn’t seem to be anything new on offer here. I don’t understand why they can’t at least provide us with the original Indonesian musical score for the first film.

      Assuming it’s still the same US release, it should have the original score. That also means The Raid 2 is still censored though.
