I figure that this was a continuation from Raid: The Redemption. I was surprised by the smooth transition from the first movie to his next assignment. The blood was perfectly done. Fight...

Everything I hoped for and More!!!!!!!!!!!

Raid: Redemption was a very good movie with memorizing action scenes. The Raid 2 blows the 1st one out of the water. The story can be a little slow about halfway through but then it picks up and...

Greatest Of All Time! Strong words but this movie blows any other action movie out of the water. The Raid 2 begins right where The Raid: Redemption left off and seamlessly blends the story together....
