Larger in scope and more complex then it's predecessor, The Raid 2 is admirable in its ambition, even if it makes for a less consistently exhilarating experience. However, when the action/fight sequences kick into high gear Gareth Evans more than delivers. Ultimately, The Raid 2 is a ridiculously violent and entertaining crime drama. (Rated R containing sequences of strong graphic brutal violence and gore, sexual content, and language)

After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen - a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls - rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. This movie has some really cool fighting and the action is mind blowing to watch but the movie dose lacks on characters and the movie felt a bit slow for me.

Eineinhalb Stunden sind seit dem ersten Teil vergangen. Hier setzt The Raid 2 ein. Die Ruhe vor dem Sturm. Eine junge Frau sitzt in einem U-Bahn Waggon, ein Mann mit Baseballschläger auf der Strasse, ein Bambusfeld steht im Wind... Immer wieder springt der Film von einem Szenario zum nächsten. Der Mann mit dem Schläger erreicht ein Lagerhaus, während die Frau zwei Hämmer aus ihrer Tasche holt. Auf die Bambusblätter spritzt Blut. Endlich entlädt sich alles in furioser Gewalt, die bei Gareth Evans Bewegungskunst und Choreographie bedeutet! Blut fliegt durch die Luft, Knochen zersplittern, in The Raid 2 ist die Welt aus den Fugen geraten! Im ersten Teil musste sich der Polizist und Familienvater Rama durch ein Haus voller Gangster kämpfen, im zweiten Teil geht Rama undercover ins Gefängnis, …

"It's a matter of limitation. And the importance of knowing yours."
This reminded me of a combination of Oldboy (hammer usage and choreography), Bourne Ultimatum and violence of Reservoir Dogs/Kill Bill. It had that The Departed like plot and characters were just very interesting. It starts with Rama (Iko Uwais) being recruited by good cops to go undercover against Uco (Arifin Putra), son of a gangster. Rama agrees since Bejo (Alex Abbad) killed his brother. Hammer girl's entrance was suave, baseball bat man was freaky, Rama just authentic acting and kicked major ass. Violence was so realistic and fight scenes so innovative. even the shaky camera and cinematography from a far (even car chases) were just stunning. Have to agree with another fellow member that it had shades of …

Of course the best action film of the year 2014 is from Indonesia.
No way in hell is it going to be coming from Hollywood these days with its obsession with superheroes, aliens, and vampires. How to describe The Raid 2: Berandel in one word? Relentless.
This is a relentlessly brutal. bloody, but beautifully filmed tale of deception and betrayal that violently erupts across the Indonesian cityscape and within the confines of its criminal underworld in an orgy of breathlessly choreographed action scenes and astoundingly staged fight scenes. This year has been a good year for blockbusters so far but only The Raid 2: Berandel comes close to being a pure rush of adrenaline.
The plot is honestly nothing we've not seen before but my god the conviction of the performances, the …
