We've had The Raid sitting on our coffee table for months but we never got around to watching it until a couple of nights ago. I had just bought Zero Dark Thirty, Lincoln, and Les Misérables but they are all such long movies that we just weren't in the mood to sit down and watch them. At just a little over an hour and a half, The Raid was something that we could just put in and not have to dedicate our entire evening too.
I know that feeling all too well. The Hobbit, Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty were all recent films that are long. A lot of times I don't have the time for 2 hour 30 minute long movies and just grab a nice and quick movie. I have heard lots of good things about The Raid, so I need to get off my ass and watch it.
