The Raid 2 finds rookie cop Rama (Iko Uwais) back undercover, but the plot twists and turns are almost an afterthought – something to hang a series of extended action sequences on. Writer/director/editor Gareth Evans provides all the gritty, nasty action you could hope for (and more – The Raid 2 is two-and-a-half hours long) with elegant moments of silence and (very) dark humor.
Just Seen It Show Runner David Freedman discussed The Raid: Redemption with Writer/Director/Editor Gareth Evans. In Jakarta’s slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world’s most dangerous killers. As an elite swat team moves in to arrest the criminals, their cover is blown trapping them.
