The Raid: Berandal
Although it never achieved mainstream success, 'The Raid' is undoubtedly one of the best action movies ever made. So how does a sequel to one of the best action movies even begin to top the original? The newly released trailer for 'The Raid 2' shows us: by going bigger and crazier in every way possible.
If you're an action movie fan and you haven't yet seen 2011's 'The Raid,' you should move that to the top of your priority list. Not just because it's one of the best action movies of the past few years, but because you'll want to be caught up when 'The Raid 2' opens this spring. We'll be getting an early look at 'The Raid 2' and the Sundance Film Festival, but if you're hungry for a sneak peek, you just need to check out this action-packed new trailer.
Gareth Evans' first 'The Raid 2' trailer gives us more than a little perspective on his highly anticipated sequel to his martial-arts film success. As our leading man, Rama (played by Iko Uwais), prepares to infiltrate a crime syndicate, he's already showing us a little of what's to come in terms of kicking ass.
'The Raid: Redemption' was one of the nicest surprises of 2012; a tour de force by director Gareth Evans that makes most Hollywood action films look like kid stuff. It was quickly announced that a sequel would be forthcoming to continue the adventure of SWAT team badass Rama (Iko Uwais), and today we've got some small but interesting details from the director himself regarding what we can expect.
