10 Exciting SXSW Movies You Must Put On Your Radar
The Raid 2: BerandalReactions 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.

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.
