    Do you think this film can be as good as The Raid (I mean, the first one; the second one is unbeatable)?? It looks quite amazing.

      I think as fanboys we have to learn to appreciate filmmakers for their efforts. The Raid is a great film but it is not the end-all-be-all of cinematic fight action, and Shimomura has done plenty of good work in the years preceding that didn't involve needing a karambit or silat. Evans deserves all the credit in the world but what we can hope for here is a film that just delivers quality action with a story and characters we can care about.
