The Raid 2 (2014)
Rama (Iko Uwais) returns to kick serious ass with Gareth Evans’ action thrillerÂ The Raid 2. The action and thrills are breathtaking with neck breaking speed and agility. It is astounding to watch. Brian Salisbury, from Oneofus.net and Film School Rejects, joins the grue-crew to discuss the pacing, the plot and the characters in depth and detail. Everyone loves Hammer Girl and try to figure out if the film has more in common with Kill Bill or Bruce Lee’s Game of Death.
