The Raid 2: Berandal
Reactions out of the Sundance Film Festival were mixed. Some critics couldnít get enough of Gareth Evansí bloody, brilliantly choreographed sequel to his hard-hitting, skull-crushing The Raid. Others, tested by the brutality and the sheer length of Evansí directors cut, walked out of the screening before the film had ended. No matter whom you spoke with, thereís no denying that The Raid 2: Berandal struck a nerve.

Hereís what I can tell you. I was in the Paramount the night The Raid played SXSW, and the rook of the theater damn near flew off thanks to the geek frenzy Evans whipped up. I know everyone who caught the initial Raid wants to see what obstacles rookie cop Rama (Iko Uwais) needs to overcome next. And from what I hear, thereís a car chase sequence in Berandal that literally will blow our minds. Iím there.
