There’s been a lot of coverage around here lately for Indonesian films, well deserved too. One of the country’s most critically acclaimed exports was The Raid, a blistering action flick directed by Gareth Evans. Now comes The Raid 2: Berandal, the anticipated sequel to the film, picking up just two hours after the events of the first film.
The teaser is mesmerising, bloody, and downright hypnotic.
Official word on the film is as follows;
[quote]”Shot and set again in Indonesia, THE RAID 2: BERANDAL picks up two hours after the point where THE RAID left off, diving straight back into a world filled with corruption and violence. Evans again takes writing and directing duties on this significantly larger project. Lead actor Iko Uwais returns for THE RAID 2: BERANDAL , and is joined by new cast including Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad, Yayan Ruhian, Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, Marsha Timothy, Cecep Arif Rahman, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi and Kitamura Kazuki.”[/quote]
Expect the carnage to hit cinemas in the first half of 2014.
