Just to give more info on direct translation:

Serbuan maut : Deadly Invasion
Berandal: Thug

Even in Indonesia, although the earlier project, it was called Serbuan Maut, the official title in Indonesia now will be called "The Raid".

It will be cool if the title :
1st: The Raid - Deadly Invasion
2nd: The Raid - Thug

Yep the original project was called Serbuan Maut, but now The Raid. Go figure
Do you think Berandal will be Indonesia's official title? As a sequel, i find it odd if they don't change the title to English.

The director gives an explanation for the name change:
Quote:
Truthfully, none of us, the guys at SPC included, wanted to change the title from the original. But once we knew we were going to expand the film into a sequel - possibly a trilogy it opened our eyes up to maybe the need for an all encompassing title that could work for all three films.

At first it was just something we toyed around with as an idea to start using with part 2, but then it became an essential thing to do from the get go. The reason why: we found out "The Raid" itself was not available for us to use as a title in the US.

We couldn't get clearance on it and believe me we all tried but with that task becoming impossible and a release date looming - we chose to go with our idea to add a word that reflected one of the elements from the first film. Redemption was the one that fit, and it beat losing The Raid completely after all the work we'd done to establish awareness of the film.

This wasn't an "evil studio" thing, the decision had nothing at all to do with the proposed remake. This was a situation we were all forced into. You guys may not love the new addition to the title, and I'm not about to go and say Redemption is perfect, cos it's not - we all much prefer the simplicity of The Raid.

But the film, it is still the same film we screened at festivals and all I hope is that you all read whatever part of that 5 second titlecard you want to when it pops up on screen, forget the rest and enjoy seeing my good friends beat the shit out of each other for 100mins.

This is an easy 10 out of 10! Best Asian action movie I've seen since Ip Man!

Great, great movie! I can't wait for the Blu-ray!

After doing a check on showtimes, closest screening is in Illinois. And then looking around on Google, a theater in Columbus is getting it on April 13th. So, I'm going to have to find a relative who can get me there to see it.

Dammit! My theater isn't carrying this film. We get 4 screens of the Battle Royale knock-off, but no room for The Raid? They are even showing the new Will Ferrel abomination here. I might have to drive down to Denver if I want to see this. No thanks....

Yup... Not one of my theaters are showing this just like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. I guess I'll have to wait for the blu ray release, but I doubt that will be available in the U.S too. Might have to import like the other guy said

Sony bought this, so expext the blu ray in a few months. Besides, Merantau, Gareth's much less popular film than The Raid is available in the US

What is the country of origin for the original movie?

Edit: found it. It's Indonesia. "Serbaun Maut"! I couldn't find a release date for the Indonesian release date.

He did remind me of Tony when I watched it. Merantau was ok. The ending sucked, if you want my opinion.
