Only a short time after the first raid, Rama goes undercover with the thugs of Jakarta and plans to bring down the syndicate and uncover the corruption within his police force.
The Raid 2 (Indonesian: The Raid 2: Berandal or Serbuan Maut 2: Berandal, lit. ‘Thug’ Japanese: ザ・レイド Gokudo, lit. ‘Gangster’) is a 2014 Indonesian martial arts action–crime drama film written, directed and edited by Welsh filmmaker Gareth Evans. It is the sequel to his 2011 film The Raid.
The film was released on 28 March 2014. It follows special forces officer Rama as he is sent undercover to expose the corrupt police officials colluding with the crime families of Jakarta’s criminal underworld. Where the events of the first film take place within a day, the second film is set over a span of several years. Like Evans’ previous films Merantau and The Raid, the fight scenes showcase the Indonesian fighting style of Pencak Silat.
Iko Uwais reprises his role as Rama. The film also stars Arifin Putra, Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad, Tio Pakusadewo, Oka Antara, and Cecep Arif Rahman. The film also features Japanese actors such as Ryuhei Matsuda, Kenichi Endo, and Kazuki Kitamura. The film is distributed by Sony Pictures Classics worldwide, Stage 6 Films in the United States, and Entertainment One in the United Kingdom.
