For those who cannot wait just a few more weeks, the filmmakers of The Raid 2: Berandal have uploaded a 10 minute featurette. This awesome video takes viewers on an epic behind the scenes look at what may be quite possibly the best action movie ever, and one of my most anticipated movies of 2014. Check out the video after the jump and assume some spoilers ahead. As far as The Raid 2‘s over two-hour long run time is concerned, this featurette is only a fraction of what is to come and should barely qualify as spoilers. The video does go more in-depth about the plot and gives audiences a better understanding of Rama’s (Iko Uwais) journey into the underground world of crime. But for those who wish to stay as innocent as possible going into this, watching this video will definitely provide a disservice to your viewing experience.
It’s amazing how much vision director Gareth Edwards has envisioned. With each fight sequence the choreography is beautifully crafted by some of the world’s most renowned martial artists. It’s incredible to see how it’s done for the film and the thought process the filmmakers went through in order to make this movie possible.
And here is the ploy synopsis for The Raid 2: Berandal:
As a rookie member of an elite special-forces team, Rama (Iko Uwais) is instructed to hang back during a covert mission involving the extraction of a brutal crime lord from a rundown fifteen-story apartment block. But when a spotter blows their cover, boss Tama (Ray Sahetaphy) offers lifelong sanctuary to every killer, gangster and thief in the building in exchange for their heads. Now Rama must stand in for the teams fallen leader Jaka (Joe Taslim) and use every bit of his fighting strength – winding through every floor and room to complete the mission and escape with his life.
The Raid 2: Berandal hits theaters in limited release on March 28, 2014.
