The Raid: Redemption was the unexpected, but well respected, hit martial arts movie of 2012. With news of a sequel on the way, the official trailer for The Raid 2: Berandal gives us a glimpse of what we can expect in this much-anticipated film.
The original Indonesian martial arts film scored the elusive combo of being positively reviewed by both fans and critics. Director Gareth Evans and actor Iko Uwais return in The Raid 2: Berandal to deliver more of the same well-paced action that made its predecessor so popular. The film follows Rama as he deals with the repercussions from the first film, as they affect not only his life, but also the fate of his city. With footage of various fight scenes, action sequences, and the hint of another climactic battle, the trailer shows just enough to keep you excited, while also leaving enough to the unknown. So if the trailer is any indication, The Raid 2: Berandal could be a strong enough successor to actually live up to the hype and anticipation generated from its predecessor.
