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.

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.

Format: DVD
In a cinematic world filled with action films that are all cloned from ‘Bourne’ movies, i.e. where our hero is mercilessly pursued across one city after the next by relentless government agents, it’s actually quite nice to see a change of style (and in a sequel, no less!).

The original ‘Raid’ film was quite a condensed little piece, set in Indonesia it was about a police raid that went bad, leaving only a handful of survivors left alive. Part II starts only a matter of hours after the first one ends and the only honest cop left alive finds he’s still in hot water when a secret team of police officers recruit him to go undercover and infiltrate what’s left of the gangs who run the city’s crime.

Now the ‘raid’ is really a raid in name only. There’s no raid in the sequel, just a story which revolves around our downtrodden police hero and his attempts to infiltrate those he has sworn to destroy. It does – naturally – have subtitles, so you’ll need to be okay with reading them while you’re watching.

Strangely enough, for an action film, there’s quite a bit to it. It’s quite a long film – over two hours – and some might say that that is too long to just watch multiple martial arts scenes (did I mention you really need to be a fan of martial arts movies to appreciate this?). However, it never really outstays its welcome and actually moves pretty quickly.

In fact… our hero almost becomes forgotten as a fair amount of the story is dedicated to the gang members and how they’re attempting to doublecross each other. Some of the enemies almost become even more memorable than our hero, who almost starts to seem bland in comparison.

Perhaps one of the Raid 2’s strengths is the way it’s filmed. If ever a film has a ‘look and feel’ then it does here.
