Writer-director Gareth Evans’ “The Raid 2: Berandal” is a movie I can’t stop obsessing over. The first installment of the series is arguably one of the finest action movies ever created. In my book, it’s up there with director John Woo’s Hong Kong classic “Hard Boiled.” Thankfully, I think the next installment could be as fantastic as the original.
While the first trailer for the upcoming sequel leaves you with more questions than answers, it’s still a fantastic teaser for what could be a breathtaking follow-up. The plot details are few and far between — the movie reportedly takes place two hours after the events found in “The Raid” — but it’s clear that our hero has his work cut out for him. The clip also begs the question: Why is Rama locked in a cell? And who is the girl covered in blood?
What in the hell is going on?!
Right now it’s unknown when “The Raid 2: Berandal” will hit screens in North America. Hopefully the wait won’t be too long, though chances are countless fans will import the Blu-ray long before it receives a domestic release date. While you’re impatiently waiting for more information about the flick to pop up online, take a good look at the trailer below. Keep some Advil handy, because it’s gonna rock your tender brain.
