I can't fault Evans for what he was trying to do here. The first movie had the plot of a turkey sandwich with copious amounts of fighting to give it some gerth, so as a filmmaker, it's only natural he try to tell a more robust story in his sequel. The issue is, that kick ass choreography was "The Raid"s only strength, and it was so good that the movie itself became kick ass, now there's a mediocre plot watering it down, and call me simple, but I just came for the pencak silat.

Fans of the first film will be pleased that this too features some great scenes of people getting the shit kicked out of them (or punched, shot, slashed, stabbed, battered, hammered, etc). The fast-paced, often frenzied, bouts of violence are deftly handled and always coherent, and quite brutal. Perhaps the running time is overly generous, and the focus on the actual characters is slight, but this is superior, exciting action cinema.

Indonesian supercop Rama viciously mutilates and murders dozens and dozens of bad dudes, in a dazzling array of fight scenes absolutely drenched in gore. If the film has a single flaw, it's the 150 minute run time...the scale of violence on display is so immense, it can feel exhausting to watch it continuing to unfold for so long. By the end, the viewer is left feeling as drained as Rama himself: battered, breathless, and dripping with enough fake blood to make Bruce Campbell proud. Amazing.

People Rama Beats Up: 6 bad guys from the backseat of a car, 15 criminals in a toilet stall, 20 people in a warehouse, a baseball assassin, 10 corrupt cops in a kitchen, 50(?) dudes in a prison yard (in the rain!). Probably half of Jakarta actually.

I appreciate making this sequel much larger in scope and not just a simple rehash, even though the 'undercover cop used as a pawn' crime thriller parts take up huge chunks of time and are tonally different from the ridiculously crazy and impressive fight scenes. The grittiness and mercilessness of everything makes for quite a dark ride sometimes. If only the story wasn't a mix of things we've seen so often before. Best action movie of 2014 for sure, but not really a fun one.
