This is a great martial arts movie. I have to say I did like the Raid better, but that does not take away that thus film is excellent. For anyone who has been disappointed with the latest Jackie martial comadies, or Jet's more wire work than martial arts, this movie is salvation. Iko Uwais has set himself up as the new martial arts superstar since Tony Jaa.

This movie is more bloody and with a higher body count that the first movie. It is set over a course of years. The martial arts are brilliant. Since the first movie Rama, is forced to go undercover supposedly to break a cur rump cop ring. To do this he must engreciate himself with the son of the head gangster. When the assignment that was supposed to be a couple of months turnes into a couple of years is there anyway back for him?

Despite the film being over 2 1/2 hours, the time flies by. More than enough action and amazing fight choirography to keep me amazed. All round great movie.

This film has a much bigger scale than the original, there is a huge ambition to make this a largescale gangster film with martial arts, and as a whole it works.
Firstly the Action scenes are astounding, the choreography and filming make each fight seem intense and weighty. The martial artists are phenomenal and at times it seems just like a very violent dance. I cannot find fault with any of the action in this movie, it is liberally spread throughout proceedings as well to break up story elements nicely.
The plot is interesting, and a direct follow on to the end of The Raid with the protaganist having to deal with the ramifications of what happened in the building and being recruited to try and bring down corrupt police who are helping the criminal gangs.
This is a long film clocking in at about 160mins and i did feel that with some judicious editing this could have been made a little tighter, but overall i enjoyed the experience and it did not seem to drag on.
The extras are interesting and add to the overall experience of the film which is nice to see. I would recommend this to all action/Martial arts fans.

Synopsis.
2 hours after the first raid Officer Rama goes undercover with the thugs of Jakarta & plans to bring down the crime syndicate & uncover the corruption within in the Police force.

As recent events of the raid have now alerted the higher criminal underworld Rama has no choice but to go undercover yet he's is putting his wife & child & his own life at risk as Rama undertakes his most dangerous assignment by infiltrating the prison under the name of Yuda to gain the confidence of a inmate named Uco who is the son of a criminal Kingpin as Yuda plots to join their gang & eventually bring down there criminal empire once & for all.

Timelord Thoughts.
This sequel to The Raid directed again by Gareth Evans is one huge crazy spectacular action packed masterpiece that needs to be seen to be believed at just how good this movie is as it puts the Hollywood action movies to shame.

I have to admit that I wasn't massively impressed with the first The Raid, because it seemed to be a little light on plot and I felt that a lot of the action was fairly repetitive (although the main actor has awesome athletic, gymnastic and martial arts abilities).

For the sequel though, they've added far more of a plot and taken the action to a significantly more impressive level - picking up about 2 hours after the other film finishes, we find the hero from the first movie being sent undercover to try and gather evidence on the crooked cops responsible for betraying his team, which means getting into one of the two big organised crime families in the city. Cue lots of over-the-top action sequences (which must have been extremely punishing to film) and some mammoth (ultra-violent) fight scenes with some truly inspired choreography.

The only criticism I could make (if I really had to find something) is the lack of guns. Not that I'm a massive fan of watching people shot, but there are literally only about 5 guns in the whole film - the rest of the time all the combat takes places using fists, feet and a variety of blunt and bladed weapons. While this makes for some awesome martial arts action, I couldn't help feeling that it was odd that none of the leading crime family members seemed to be 'packing'. Presumably this was precisely because it made for better action, but surely, if you're a higher-up in an organised crime gang, at least a couple of your bodyguards would be carrying a gun, in order to better protect you? This is particularly strange when compared to the original movie, in which their were guns galore!

That aside, this is a truly awesome action/martial arts movie.
