The Raid 2: Barandal - first full trailer

Trailer Ryan Lambie 3 Jan 2014 - 08:11

Director Gareth Evans follows up his stunning 2011 martial arts flick The Raid with the sequel, Barandal. Here's the first full trailer...

We appreciate that we're late with this one due to our festive break, but we couldn't resist posting the latest trailer for The Raid 2: Berandal in case any of you happened to miss it.

This is director Gareth Evans' sequel, of course, to his startlingly brilliant 2011 film The Raid, which introduced many of us to the Indonesian martial art, silat, and the seemingly superhuman abilities of its lead star, Iko Uwais.

In The Raid 2: Berandal, the first film's claustrophobic violence spills out into the wider city of Jakarta, with Uwais' cop Rama going undercover to combat organised crime. As you'd expect, a considerable amount of fighting and assorted mayhem ensues, and once again, we're immediately struck by just how good Evans is at staging and shooting an action sequence.

So with a warning to the unwary of some potentially NSFW scenes of bloodshed, here's the latest, full trailer for The Raid 2. The film's tentatively scheduled for a spring release in UK cinemas, so when we get a more precise date, we'll be sure to share it with you.

It's difficult to tell from a trailer whether this is going to be as good as the first. Fingers crossed though.

This is going to kick all kinds of butt. I loved the first film but this looks like there may be more story to accompany the action (and the action looks glorious!)

It looks less fighty. If anything it should be less drivy, less shooty, less plotty, and more more more FIGHTY.

bErandal, please. Not bArandal.

This is gonna be great.

It's difficult not to associate the trailer with one of Dave Gorman's Found Poems because of the music. Damn you Dave Gorman!
