The Raid 2: Berandal Teaser Is Here!
Iko Uwais punches his weight in Gareth Evans' sequel

06 November 2013  |  Written by Chris Hewitt

An hour and a half earlier than promised due to overwhelming demand, the teaser trailer for Gareth Evans' The Raid 2: Berandal - arguably the most anticipated action movie of next year - is now online, thanks to the lovely chaps at TwitchFilm, and it rocks.

It's a true teaser, giving us a basic and very intriguing set-up. Iko Uwais' supercop, Rama, survivor of The Raid, is now sitting in a prison cell. How he got there, or why, remains a mystery, but he certainly doesn't look happy about it - as he demonstrates in no uncertain terms by punching the crap out of a silhouette on the wall.

As he does so, we get brief flashes of just some of the colourful characters that Rama will meet, greet and in all likelihood grind into meat on his murky journey into the underbelly of the Indonesian crime scene. Some - like Cecep Rahman's Assassin or Julie Estelle's Hammer Girl - are new faces. Others, like Tegar Satrya's Bowo and Yayan Ruhian, we've seen before, although, just to make it interesting, Ruhian - so memorable as Mad Dog in The Raid - is a new character here, the gray-haired enforcer Prakoso.

Finishing off with brief shots that hint at the film's bloody mayhem and larger scale (there's a hint of a car chase, and a setpiece in an Indonesian mall), it's a mouthwatering taste of a film that has pretty big shoes to fill. Enjoy.

The Raid 2: Berandal is out in 2014.

That looks immense. I'm a massive fan of the first one and the use of various styles and locations in this shows how the scale is growing. I've got genuine faith that this could improve on the original. Can't wait. More

RE: Meh..
It's not just Empire that like this film mate - most people that are fans of this type of film agree that this is an outstanding piece of work. Basic storyline, basic script, basic actors yes - but the music, the style, the fight scenes, the lack of CGI, the violence....all superb and worthy of ever bit of praise in my eyes. Some of the camerawork and tricks used are brilliant - the two hands reaching out from the doorway to strangle the guy on the chair, the knife in the hollow wall, the fall More

oh yeah
Looking every bit bigger and better than the last, well done trailer, doesn;t give away the whole film and confirms you're in for a wild ride. More

Meh..
Contrary to what Empire thinks, The Raid was nowhere near a 5 star movie.Excellent fights to be sure, but rather lacking in other areas.This new film could be good but wel just have to wait and see. More
