GREATEST action movie of all-time,
This review is from: The Raid 2 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is a review for the movie itself, (Blu-Ray review is at the end)
WARNING: After watching this movie, you will find that every other action movie you watch will be extremely boring in comparison. If you liked The Raid 1, then this one is basically 5x more intense! It features one of the greatest fight scenes I've ever seen in my life (I was literally shaking and on the edge of my seat while watching it), the greatest car chase scene I've ever witnessed, and probably some of the most violent and cringe-worthy moments all nicely packaged within this one great movie.
If you are a fan of Tarantino films, this film has many aspects that are very Tarantino-esque, especially when all hell breaks loose midway through the movie. I just hope the Blu-Ray has many extras as this is one of my most favorite films of all time.
NOTE: You DO NOT "need" to watch The Raid 1, to follow the storyline. This movie holds up perfectly well by itself.
Blu Ray Review:
I thought the extras were nice but left more to be desired. I was hoping there would be more deleted scenes, but oh well. I don't mind the movie being 1-2 seconds shorter than the original when all that was stated being cut were literally frames from the gory kills. If at a later date, a collector's or special edition is released, I will gladly buy that one as well :) .. Also, believe it or not, F.Y.E. at my local mall has the blu-ray on sale for $17.99 as of this posting (cheapest i've seen anywhere) but it was sold out when I visited (which was release day), Best Buy & Amazon has it at $19.99, and Walmart has it for $22.. Hope this is helpful for you guys.

Not too much of a storyline to follow, and as far as it being the "GREATEST action movie of all-time" it's not even the greatest non-English language action film of all time (Hard Boiled, The Killer).

Great action for sure. "All Time" greatest action comment feels a little biased.

I agree this is the greatest action movie of all time. A throne that was previously sat upon by the Protector. I think that these guys are missing the point that when it's said we really mean movies that are focused on action.
