Speaking of movies that are great even though subtitled, the wife and I recently watched "The Lives Of Others". I thought that leaving it in German with very clear English subtitling made it a better viewing experience for us, than just listening to an English overdub, as it enabled us to talk over the dialog without missing any of it, comparing our thoughts and opinions moment by moment. It was really an engrossing kind of movie experience, though it might not work as well in a public theatre. Helped that the film is absolutely PERFECT. See it if you haven't yet. Please.

I remember a couple of times waiting in line for a foreign movie at the show, or hearing a sales person at the local Blockbuster store explain a film to a customer, and hearing some hick rube response like: "I don't go to movies to READ! That's WORK!"

Regarding The raid: seems structured very much like an FPS video game even down to the levels and "boss battles". Russian Spetznaz version of this game: set fire to the first three floors and wait with nets.

And maybe extinguishers. Maybe.
