I think it goes without saying that Gareth Evans’ THE RAID 2 is one of the most anticipated action films of the year as it promises to deliver some of the most raw, in-your-face thrills that cinema has to offer—and from what we've heard, it's even better than the first film! To go along with yesterday's kickass TV spot, we thought you guys would like to check out a bunch of new stills from the film that feature plenty of carnage to hold you over until its March 28th release. Dig them below!
Filmmaker Gareth Evans gloriously reunites with star Iko Uwais for this epic martial-arts sequel. No longer confined to a single building, the fight spills across the streets of Jakarta--from prison yards to subway cars. Evans packs his film with enough jaw-dropping action and groan-inducing hits to rival a Hollywood studio's entire summer slate.
Immediately following the events of the original, The Raid 2 tracks Officer Rama as he is pressured to join an anticorruption task force to guarantee protection for his wife and child. His mission is to get close to a new mob boss, Bangun, by befriending his incarcerated son, Uco. Rama must hunt for information linking Bangun with corruption in the Jakarta Police Department while pursuing a dangerous and personal vendetta that threatens to consume him and bring his mission--and the organized crime syndicate--down around him.
Also starring in Evans' sequel: Yayan Ruhian, Raiden Integra, Donny Alamsyah, Kazuki Kitamura and Julie Estelle.
