Those that watched the first of the series will remember the electric action throughout the film.
This movie see's rookie cop 'Rama' go under-cover as his attempts to return to a normal
existence with his family looks increasingly unlikely.
His fame after his earlier exploits has made him and his family a target.
'Rama' agrees to go under-cover by becoming a prisoner in jail to infiltrate a criminal organisation,
if he'd refused the task, his safety and that of his family could not be guaranteed.
In jail he has to gain the confidence of syndicate bosses son 'Uco' who is serving a stretch inside.
Two years have passed, 'Rama' is released, 'Uco' awaiting him, 'Uco' wants to take 'Rama' to
see his father 'Bangun' so he could be thanked for watching out for his son in jail.
'Rama' now has to gain the confidence of the syndicate boss showing that he can be trusted and
will be an asset to the syndicate.
'He's in, now he has to set about doing the job he's there for, collect enough evidence to bring them
down.
'Uco' is growing impatient with his father, he wants more responsibility, but 'Bangun' is not ready to
pass the reigns of the business over, a powder-keg that's not lost on 'Rama'
'Uco' is arranging with a rival syndicate boss to start a war with his fathers organisation after ten
years of peace between them, of course 'Rama' a cop, is stuck slap bang in the middle of it.
'Rama' at this stage feels he's gathered enough evidence to bring the syndicates down, his superior
doesn't agree.

I don't want to anal-ise how movies are made because I am happy to immerse myself in a movie whether it is the Wizard of Oz, Bambi or the Exorcist.

With this movie ... the bar has been raised in a number of departments ... perhaps I could call it the 'Cecil D DeMille' of violence, brutality and sheer class.

I mean, just imagine what this very talented Director could have done with the Car Chase scene in Matrix II, or the Gangland culling scene of Kill Bill I ... yeah, I know, health and safety regs are non-existent in Indonesia and this stuff will never be made in Hollywood or in the Pinewood Studios in the UK.

OK, the film is slow in some areas but when the action starts ... (and I know that is the reason why I have bought this movie) ... it just takes you to a very in-depth place called 'bonkers'.

For instance, imagine trying to choreograph a completely 'say hello to the boys for me gracey' fight scene in a vehicle like a Hyundai ix35 ... and the rest.

All I can say is that this movie raises the bar. I have only watched it once and I will, for sure, watch it another 10 times just to get a handle on what happens in some of the most amazing actions scenes you can expect to see in a film like this ... bar none.

Gareth Evans, whoever you are ... you should have pride in this project and the Raid I. May your vision and your direction of the most outrageous action set pieces I have seen (since the golden years of the silent movies) bless the film industry for many years to come.

Sheer, utter, exhilarating class ... I am now off to find out where my dentures went during that amazing Car Chase ... smiling widely and badly :)

“The Raid 2” is of course the follow up to nonstop action extravaganza “The Raid”. The story of the first raid is a rather simple one a guy goes into a building and beats up a whole bunch of people and that’s pretty much it

But what it lacked in a story in more than made up for in head-cracking action for the entire running time. Which lead to some people saying that because it was nothing but fighting for the 90 minute running time after a while it got repetitive and boring
So if you thought that the first raid was poor because there was no story, than I’d recommend “The Raid 2” because this makes up for the lack of a story in spades.

At it’s core it’s a crime thriller about the son of a mob boss who feels that he’s undervalued and as a result he wants to kill him and take his place at the head of the crime syndicate that has an iron fist over Jakarta (or at least I think that this were it takes place) There is so much going plot wise that at a few moments it lost me but never to the point that I couldn’t catch up with what was happening.

But that’s not to say that this doesn't contain the high octane action set pieces that made a lot of action movies fall in love with the first installment. There are some extremely innovative, pulse pounding action sequence, that will have even the most ardent action junkie wincing on more than one occasion.

Overall this is a fantastic sequel that took what made “The Raid” a great movie and greatly expanded upon it. This was everything and whole lot more a person could want from “The Raid 2”.This is a must watch for fans of action movie and is also a must watch for people who love sprawling crime epics in the vein of “The Godfather.

A great second installment and with a third on the way, I for one will be in the cinema when it gets released.
