The Raid 1 is one of the best action movies I have ever seen. The action, martial arts, and gritty crime setting made it such an exciting experience that took me by surprise. Yet it was so very simple. The story, the characters, the setting, it was all so bare bones. It was only the mind blowing action that made it so amazing.

The Raid 2 not only improves upon the action, but it is a deeper, more complex, and more emotional movie. This is one of those rare occasions when a sequel outdoes the classic original in every conceivable way. I watched, expecting a simple yet fun action movie, I finished realizing that I had just watched something so much more.

There are many more characters with personality and roles in the story this time around. Rama once again proves himself as the King of kicking the daylights out of people. There is a large cast of criminals, all of whom have their own memorable personalities, their own motivations, and their own subplots that makes them so much more than generic bad guys. There are also many twists and revelations that I doubt anyone will be able to predict.

The cinematography is brilliant. The scenes are shot so well. Not just the fight scenes, but everything. The footage slows down at just the right moments, the camera may focus on a wisp of smoke, or a droplet of water, or any other mesmerizing image at certain points. The sets are beautiful too, and are a vast improvement over the bland apartment block in the first movie. Sound and music are also very important here. They are used with great effect at key points in very creative ways.

But the main thing in the Raid 2 is the action. All of the fight scenes are spread out more evenly than in the first movie where it was near constant.

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.

The first film was amazing....the Raid 2.....action scenes were amazing, but the director to should stick to just that, directing! He wrote the movie which was actually NOT the Raid 2 when it started life and the movie studios rejected it and so he decided to weave the RAID into this movie that no studio would touch and what we get is a film with breath taking action scenes and a story that really is too long. I mean there is about 30 mins where an old guy suddenly enters into the movie we see him with family probs and then he goes and gets killed....this was supposed to evoke some kind of emotion in the viewer...it did not! It was more like WHY? That coulda been cut out and the film woulda been a whole lot slicker and tight. The main character from the original film really is superfluous he really makes no impact on the film, his actions change nothing that would've happened even if he had never infiltrated this dodgy bunch of criminals! It really was pointless, I mean he's undercover and he's away for over 2years instead of a couple of months, calls his wife and she doesn't flinch she doesn't ask what happened, nothing! Crazy! The problem is if you want the audience to form an emotional connection it is usually with the main character not an old guy who appears for 5 mins then dies! Yet in saying that the action, I loved it! But because of all the bum fluff it seemed like it took an age before any action happened. I sat bored through most of the movie I'm sad to say and i asked friends their opinion and theirs was the exact same, which was a shame. I would recommend it but when you see a hairy old guy, put him forward he serves no purpose but to slow the film down!
