Exclusive Trailer : The Raid 2- Berandal (2014)
Director Gareth Evans' "The Raid 2" doesn't hit theaters for a few months yet, but the Indonesian martial arts epic has already enjoyed an early premiere at the Sundance Film Festival — and based on early reviews, the film's theatrical release cannot come soon enough.
Critics are raving following Tuesday's premiere of Evans' "Raid" sequel, which follows Iko Uwais' Rama out of the tenement building and onto the mean streets of Jakarta. By and large, reviewers agree that "The Raid 2" improves on the first film in significant ways, with some going so far as to call it the "Dark Knight" of action movies. High praise, to be sure.
"'The Raid 2' is remarkable filmcraft, first and foremost, and it tells a solid, compelling cop story in a way that left me physically shaking. I cannot wait to see it again, and I am genuinely concerned that the MPAA is going to savage the version we saw because of the profound level of graphic violence it contains. It is a savage world that Evans portrays, though, and any attempt to tone that down will, oddly, make it more conventional and make the violence more generic.
