The Raid 2: Berandal

Gareth Evans Indonesia, 2014

Palmat's rating of the film The Raid 2

It seems that many people love this movie but I fail to see what the fuss is about. It's good but not great. The action however is stellar, second to none. That is certain! But the plotting is terribly pedestrian and unoriginal, not bad, but very familiar. And a whole lot of movies have dealt with this story infinitely better. And the acting is servicable but nothing special. A fun but forgettable ride. Nothing more!
