Director Gareth Evans: 'We don't need stuntmen [for The Raid movie]. The three of us choreograph all the sequences together. Iko, Yayan and I literally lock ourselves away. We'll say: 'this fight scene is in a corridor, there are four or five guys with machetes coming at you, they're all going to come at you at the same time - now how do you fight your way out of that? Then I shoot the whole thing on a handicam at half speed. That gives me a chance to storyboard the fight from every angle. By the time we come to actually shoot the sequence, 99% of it conforms to what we've already worked out. One particular scene, a final confrontation between Uwais and Ruhian, lasts for six-and-a-half minutes on screen. Each shot was taken 15 or 20 times over. I wanted to shoot it over a fortnight but was given eight days. Those poor guys, they had to fight for six consecutive days, 14 hours a day, and every blow was real apart from ones to the face. We couldn't do that for insurance reasons.'
