At this year's Toronto International Film Festival, which proved relatively quiet in terms of breakout hits, one film has dominated the buzz among genre-fans: Indonesian actioner "The Raid." Focusing on a SWAT team attempting to take out a mobster in a tenement, and directed by ex-pat Welsh helmer Gareth Huw Evans, it's apparently an ultra-violent, breathless, stripped-down, genre classic, with some viewers drawing comparisons to "Die Hard" -- high praise indeed. (Watch the trailer below for a hint of what to expect).
