A day doesn’t go by that someone doesn’t email me asking when/where they can get a copy of Gareth Evans’ “The Raid: Redemption” on DVD/Blu-ray. I don’t blame them. “The Raid” is one of the craziest action movie I’ve seen in a long while, and although the narrative is a tad, shall we say, spotty and the film relies on a total whopper of a premise (really, an entire building housed with criminals except for that one nerdy guy and his pregnant wife?), it’s still a ridiculously entertaining action movie with hardcore stunts and bloodletting.
So yes, I don’t blame you guys for wanting desperately to get your hands on a DVD/Blu-ray copy of this insanity. Well, sorry to say, it’ll be a while yet.
The good news is that the film is currently up for pre-order on Amazon.com from Sony Pictures. The bad news is that the movie won’t be available until August 14, 2012. Unfortunately, there are also no specs, though the fact that it’ll be hitting Blu-ray as well as DVD is cause for celebration.
If you would like, you can pre-order your copy now.
