‘The Raid 2′ Trailer Is 80 Seconds of Kick-Ass Action
If you didn't know that 'The Raid' is one of the best action movies of the past five years, we're here to tell you: 'The Raid' is one of the best action movies of the past five years. And the latest trailer for the upcoming sequel gives us plenty of reasons to think that 'The Raid 2' is going to rank right up there too.
In 2011's 'The Raid: Redemption,' a special police force squad battled it out with gangsters for more than 90 minutes in an apartment building. We didn't count, but the bullets and bloodshed most likely topped any other movie that's come out in the '10s.
And the action sequences? Ho-lee crap ...
From the look of things, 'The Raid 2,' which opens Friday in certain cities, is going to be even more intense, bloody and awesome. Just watch the new trailer for the Indonesian movie above. It doesn't even run a minute and a half, but there's more action packed in this quick glimpse than most two-hour Hollywood movies deliver these days.
Does it really matter if there's a plot here? (For the record, 'The Raid 2' takes place shortly after the events of the first film and stars the same hero.) Just brace yourself for a whole lotta kick-ass.
