Taking place immediately after the events of his breakthrough martial arts hit, Gareth Evans’ “The Raid 2: Berandal” sends everyone’s high-kickin’ cop to the joint on an undercover operation to nab some crooks and, of course, get into a bunch of cool fights. There also appears to be a ton of gunfights, too, and more than a little “someone call the stuntman’s union!” type of action going on here.
Check out a new, full-length trailer and a bunch of images from the upcoming movie. It certainly looks almost as insane as the first one. With more money to work with, it also looks like Evans took full advantage of it. Whereas the first movie was shot on a moderate budget, this one looks vastly more expensive.
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.
Starring Iko Uwais, Yayan Ruhian, Raiden Integra, Donny Alamsyah, Kazuki Kitamura, Tio Pakusodewo, Julie Estelle, Ryûhei Matsuda, Arifin Putra, and Ken’ichi Endô.
The raid starts again at Sundance next year.
