US Box Office estimates for weekend 12 -15 April 2012
Most mainstream Hollywood action films are spineless. Modern audiences have forgotten the feeling of a real adrenaline rush thanks to the watered down efforts of the ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise, as an example of one of the main offenders. Writer/director Gareth Evans single handily atones for the crimes of every lame action film pumped out of the studio system with ‘The Raid’, and crafts one of the greatest martial arts films of all time.
Thanks to Madman Entertainment The Popcorn Junkie has four double in-season passes to see ‘The Raid’ that’s released in Australia on March 22 2012.
