The Raid 2: Berandal

Gareth Evans Indonesia, 2014

Zach Closs's rating of the film The Raid 2

A vast improvement over its predecessor. While the original film felt a little too tidily constructed for optimal carnage, "Berandal" plays it fast and loose, and incorporates a labyrinth crime tale rife with interesting characters and strangely beautiful imagery. And, most definitely, this is martial arts action like I'd never seen before.
