Not long after a raucous midnight showing at TIFF's Midnight Madness section, actioner "The Raid," which picked up excellent reviews from the festival, is set to have a new sound, with Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda coming on board, according to The Hollywood Reporter, to craft the picture's soundscape. Hailing from Indonesia (although helmed by Welsh director Gareth Huw Evans), "The Raid" follows the conflict between a SWAT team and a gang of mobsters armed to the teeth and trained in martial arts. Obviously really challenging stuff. It's from the makers of the martial arts film "Merantau," which featured a similarly threadbare plot as an excuse for some ornate martial arts choreography. It would be nice if someone told some of these guys that it's nice to have amazing stunts and a story as well, but hey, they can't all be Jackie Chan. And if they tried, it probably wouldn't end well for anyone's safety.
