The original “Raid” film still stands as one of the best bloody action movie experiences I’ve had in the last few years. If there’s anything that’s going to top it, I imagine it’s going to be “The Raid 2: Berandal.”
While we’ll have to wait till March 28th, 2014 for the sequel to “The Raid” to hit theaters worldwide, you can catch it this January if you happen to be in Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. ”The Raid 2″ is set to make it’s world premiere there. However, if you can’t wait for either of those dates, then maybe this will tide you over. Down below we have the first official action-packed trailer.
Picking up where the first film left off, The Raid 2 follows Rama as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and expose the corruption in his own police force.
Gareth Evans once again returns to the director’s chair for this second installment which stars Iko Uwais, Yayan Ruhian, Arifin Putra, Oka Antara, Tio Pakusadewo, and Alex Abbad. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
