Relentless pummeling paces 'The Raid'

The film speed of 24 frames-per-second barely outruns the relentless pace of pummeling that thumps through the Indonesian martial arts flick “The Raid: Redemption.”
'Battleship' down

Inspired by Hasbro's classic board game, “Battleship” is essentially a lavish but inconsequential diversion. For the film, the fact that aliens do exist, have responded to our radio signals, and have landed on Earth for possibly colonizing it is mainly an excuse for thrilling battleship action, and for slacker Alex Hopper (Taylor Kitsch) to go through his coming-of-age.
