I'm sorry did you want the slum where a brutal urban war was fought to be neon pink?

And then action movies like Die Hard feature memorable, likeable main characters whereas The Raid's main character is just...a dude who punches good. Just not really what I look for in an action movie although I'm still happy I watched it and I will check out the sequel at some point
It's pretty funny that you bring up John Wick and consider The Raid subpar to it when John Wick's action scenes were inspired by The Raid and other movies that feature the single camera Hall fights. It's like you are ****ting on the movie that is even the main reason John Wick was created. So weird.

That’s why it’s cool when art inspires new, better art

This sounds like the same kind of debate to be had with someone who always says "the book is better than the movie" whenever a movie adaptation of a book comes out. You dont have to love an original if what it births is it but better.

John Wick's stylization adds a lot to the series as a sort of dumb action flick fantasy epic, but the relatively stripped down grittiness of The Raid serves an entirely different vibe that makes it feel so much more desperate and unpleasant. Both are very similar in some regards but are very different in others but are both still god tier martial arts action movie ****.

I cringe at the thought of your Jon Woo takes.

There are pros to that kind of vibe, I just don't like it as much as the hyperstylized Wick stuff. It's not like I gave the Raid a 0/10 or something. It's a good movie. Just not one of my favorites. Inherently action movies are only like my 5th favorite genre, but I'm still trying to see as many of them as I can. There's only so much time in a day unfortunately

Have you checked out the Crank movies? Crank 2 is in the running for best action movie ever.

I liked the first one better, but both are great.
