SYNOPSIS:
  "He thought it was over. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen – a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls – rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldn’t have been more wrong.

Formidable though they may have been, Rama’s opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. And his triumph over the small fry has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his infant son and wife: He must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself and climb through the hierarchy of competing forces until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top of the heap.

And so Rama begins a new odyssey of violence, a journey that will force him to set aside his own life and history and take on a new identity as the violent offender “Yuda.” In prison he must gain the confidence of Uco – the son of a prominent gang kingpin – to join the gang himself, laying his own life on the line in a desperate all-or-nothing gambit to bring the whole rotten enterprise to an end."

Got the Blu Ray!!!
Watched it a few days ago..... WOW just perfectly crime action martial arts movie
The ending left it open for a part 3, if possible

The story wasn't quite as straightforward as the original's, and Hammer Girl & the Baseball Boy were too much like comic-book characters, but again, the fight scenes were incredible. I wish Gareth Evans would direct an episode of Arrow.

[frick]ing love this franchise so far. People need to stop calling Bay an action directing genius cause Gareth Evans is what a true action directing genius is.

@Pending who is calling Bay action directing genius...he just puts a lot of "flash" in his movie without the story and pretty much anything else. He su*ks.

Gareth Evans should direct an Iron Fist movie instead of an episode of Arrow.
DrunkenNukem - 7/12/2014, 4:02 AM

Danbojohnj - 7/12/2014, 5:01 AM
Needs to direct a Star Wars movie,the Adventures of Obi wan or a badass Troopers movie.

"Give me the ball"

Damn I love this movie and the fact that Evans does more with the martial arts genre than just sticking to the same box. CBM's should take note on how a film can straddle multiple genres outside of Action/Adventure.

Awesome films. The Godfather of martial arts films.

The Raid 1 & 2 are The Best Action Movies Ever.
pertamanak - 7/12/2014, 8:58 AM
Love the raid & 2: Brendal. hope the third one have more balance in story and fight/ action scene
odie00 - 7/12/2014, 11:43 AM
I JUST got done watching this movie and WOW! The fight scenes were amazing. I loved the first Raid movie but this one surpassed it in my opinion. It will be hard for them to top it if they made a part 3.
sameoldthing - 7/12/2014, 4:16 PM
Story is important but seriously,when watching a chop-socky,ass-kicking movie all I really want is some brutal badass action.
These films really deliver...need more like them.
