Deleted Scene - 'Gang War'.



A Message from the Director - Gareth Evans

"This is one of a few deleted scenes taken from the film. Reasons to cut were entirely down to pacing issues. This was probably the hardest for me to cut due to the fact that the production on this scene lasted around 6 days of shooting, it cost us a fuck load to make and it served to escalate the gang war out onto the streets involving people outside of the closed off inter-gang politics.

At the end of the day though, after discussing its worth it took us away from the central theme for a little too long with characters that would only exist in this scene alone.

Whenever I edit a film - every scene feels like a precious moment. "No fucking way can I cut this" is a regular phrase I utter at Aram (one of the producers at XYZ Films who patiently worked with me to get the film to it's final cut) but his patience was always a virtue and it's when you make a cut and no longer miss it from the bigger picture a few days down the line that you realise it was the right decision to make.

But I still want you guys to see the chaos and the mayhem we had in store, and so with the release of the film coming in a few days time - here's a sample of one of the action scenes that simply didn't make it.

Enjoy.

- Gareth Evans"

Incredible. Even the deleted scene sweet pass some movies. It is grisly though, but it works. I was afraid in a bid to outdo himself, the director could have gone over-board like the usual Hollywood staple...

The film was good. A tad bit slower than the first one but I still really enjoyed it. I'm sure you will too.

What's the news on the 'Hollywood' copy of this... are they still remaking the first one? I heard that a while back... no idea if it was actually greenlit.

EDIT: E be like say e get greenlight - Raid Redemption - Hollywood remake

Bloody waste of time and money. How do you remake perfection? Hello! These people just have no ideas left and got money to burn to boot. Dumb idiots. What makes the Raid is the fluid non-stop action, and Hollywood cannot match that lailai.

By the way, revisit the director's reason for cutting out this kick-butt bit...it slows down the action and deviates from the larger theme...Incredible. Tough choice. It would have hurt me to the bone to dump this bit.

Lol, they are remaking it because their 'people' in general can't read 'subs' hahahaha.

So dub and re-release. No, that's not the issue. Its not released in Hollywood until you put white faces in the lead, that's all. The people in it don't look right is the problem. That's how they ruined a wonderful material like The Last Airbender... And that Thor guy? Stiff and terrible. Pretty and muscled, yes, but casting him already tells you the mentality they're aiming for.
