The Raid 2 Berandal Teaser Poster Header

The Raid 2 is just one of those action films that you have to watch this year. Following the events of the first Raid, Rama (Iko Uwais) is now assigned to be an undercover cop who has to infiltrate one of Indonesia’s most dangerous crime families. In an effort to keep everyone he loves safe, Rama agrees to the assignment, not knowing how dangerous or how deep he has to go underground.

I usually refrain from posting clips, but having seen the movie already — and one of the clips being shown is actually a deleted scene — I think it will be okay. If anything, these clips don’t even cover how bloody The Raid 2 really is. And honestly, with a 150-minute run time, I think I can understand why director Gareth Evans may have excluded the rival gang shootout scene. So hit the jump to check them out.

I’m glad that we are getting The Raid 2: Berandal. For me, it’s great to finally see that Indonesian Cinema can share a spot alongside other great movies during film festivals like Sundance Film Festival or Toronto International Film Festival. And with the film making its big screen debut in just a few weeks at Sundance, fans are eagerly awaiting to see what will happen to the film’s hero, Rama (Iko Uwais), after his crew was decimated trying to raid a 30 apartment building occupied by drug lords, thieves, and criminals. And maybe some electric action scenes too.

The sequel will find Rama infiltrating the same crime ring and getting caught in between two crime families who are fighting over control over the city of Jakarta. Unlike the first trailer which featured Uwais punching the wall at a furious pace, this trailer has new footage, and shows the war between the two families and how far Rama must go to take them down.
