We’ve been covering director Gareth Evans’s insane Indonesian action movie The Raid (retitled The Raid: Redemption for US audiences) for quite a while now. The film comes with a ton of buzz, and Matt caught it at Sundance and recommends it without hesitation. The martial arts-heavy pic centers on 20 elite SWAT team members must make their way up the treacherous floors of a criminal-infested highrise in order to get to the gang’s leader. We brought you the first US trailer a few days ago, the final poster yesterday, and now an extensive 13 minute “Making-of” featurette for the film has gone online. It highlights how Evans brought the film to life, choreographing the crazy fight scenes, how they sent the cast to boot camp, the mixture of practical and CG effects, and so much more.

Hit the jump to watch.  If you missed it, be sure to check out Steve’s interview with Evans where he talks about the planned The Raid trilogy. The Raid: Redemption opens on March 23rd.
