Posted January 1st, 2014 at 5:15 pm


One of the best action films in recent years is the Indonesian film The Raid (released as The Raid: Redemption in the US). It’s a must watch for any action fan. The first trailer for the sequel is out now. Gareth Evans returns to direct and write the film with Iko Uwais again starring. The story picks up two hours after the ending of the first movie. The Raid 2: Berendal is slated to release on March 28.

Written and directed by Gareth Evans, THE RAID 2 picks up right where the first film left off and follows Rama (Iko Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force. His mission is to get close to a new mob boss, Bangun, by befriending his incarcerated son, Uco. Rama must hunt for information linking Bangun with corruption in the Jakarta Police Department while pursuing a dangerous and personal vendetta that threatens to consume him and bring his mission–and the organized crime syndicate–down around him.Matt Flannery (THE RAID: REDEMPTION) and Dimas Imam Subhono served as cinematographers with Joseph Trapanese (THE BOURNE LEGACY), Aria Prayogi (THE RAID: REDEMPTION) and Fajar Yuskemal (THE RAID: REDEMPTION) scoring the picture.
