New Martial Arts Action Film Highlight: "The Raid: Redemption"

the raid redemption is not kung fu or karate movie. It's traditional indonesian martial arts called pencak silat. Do your research.

(b)@reka(/b)(br /)(br /)Thanks so much for the input reka. We did realize that Pencak Silat is the art that is predominantly shown throughout the trailer. We were just describing the movie as a 'Kung Fu' movie in the more general sense, not to suggest that the actual art used is Kung Fu.(br /)(br /)Thanks again for the comment!
