    The Raid 2 lets its warriors rip for two and a half thrilling hours. With the precision of dance and the punch of a KO champion, Evans keeps the action coming like nobody's business. The wow factor is off the charts. show more

    Evans pays careful attention to atmosphere, while giving wide berth to cinematographers Dimas Imam Subhono and Matt Flannery, who find beauty among the mayhem. Everything on screen is crystal clear and vibrant, like a city street right after the rain. show more

    For better or worse, the blood and bone-crunching remains most prominent. show more

    There are tradeoffs with the switch to a more epic, ambitious canvas, but Gareth Evans’ action sequel in most ways that count is an even more masterful jolt of high-energy genre filmmaking. show more

    Good luck finding a modern martial-arts epic that can even hold a candle to it. show more

    If what you’re after is insane, mind-bogglingly violent martial arts action, “The Raid 2” is quite possibly the ultimate. show more

    Miraculously, the new picture makes the old one feel like Evans was just warming up. show more

    Wow. For those with strong constitutions, The Raid 2 offers one of the most intense motion picture experiences available; it may also be the most violent movie ever to be released into theaters. show more

    Those with a high tolerance for violence and gore — at one point, Rama battles assassins labeled “Baseball Bat Man’’ and “Hammer Girl’’ simultaneously — will eat up The Raid 2. show more

    Gareth Evans’s sequel to his surprise 2011 hit takes the original’s basic formula – lots of people pounding on each other in close quarters – and simply stretches it over a much longer running time. show more

    bloodiest movie ever. Plot jumped around. Subtitled throughout. Don't waste your money.

    AWESOME! Plot continues straight from Raid 1. Best action I've ever scene in a martial arts film. There are scenes that look soooo real you would think the stuntmen really got injured (they probably did). Also, the blood and gore level on this one is higher than the first.
