First Reactions To THE RAID 2 Are Off The Richter Scale

Ever since a sequel was announced for Gareth Evans' The Raid, everyone has been wondering if the director could duplicate that success. Well, based on first reactions it is safe to say that The Raid 2: Berandal has surpassed even their highest expectations.

If you thought the no-holds-barred action sequences Gareth Evans served up in 2011's The Raid: Redemption were exceptional, then you are in for quite a treat when the follow-up, The Raid 2: Berandal lands in theaters this March. Last night at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, The Raid 2 made its highly-anticipated premiere. As the credits began to roll the audience jumped off their seats to give the film and it's creator a well deserved standing ovation. It should also be noted, that there was a bit of a scare. A member of the audience collapsed during the viewing and an emergency unit had to be called. Hopefully he is fine and we wish him a speedy recovery.

“Picking up right where the first film ends, ‘The Raid 2′ follows Rama (Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.“
