The Raid: Redemption sequel, Berandal to start up two hours after first film

If you somehow haven’t seen Gareth Evans’ excellent The Raid: Redemption yet, go rent it. With minimal dialogue, ridiculous fight sequences and an astoundingly bleak look, it’s one of the best action movies of the last year. And, according to MTV, Evans isn’t done yet.

The sequel, Berandal (thug), picks up a mere two hours after the first film and will apparently incorporate some car chases.

“It’s not going to be set within one building this time. Everything that was terrifying about the boss in that building in the first movie is small fry compared to the criminal organization we meet in the second film. We take it out into the streets, go much wider and much bigger in terms of the scope.”

Rama (Iko Uwais) just can’t catch a break.

Seriously, it can’t be stressed enough how exciting this news is unless you’ve sat through The Raid. It is adrenaline. Watch it, and then check out the embedded interview with Evans over at MTV.
