The Raid 2: Berandal
With director Gareth Evans and stars Julie Estelle and Iko Uwais in person
Dir. Gareth Evans. 2014, 148 mins. DCP courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics. With Iko Uwais, Julie Estelle, Yayan Ruhian. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen (in The Raid, one of the most riveting action films in years) rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He could not have been more wrong. Rama’s opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. Rama has only one choice to protect his infant son and wife: He must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself and climb through the hierarchy of competing forces until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top of the heap. This special preview screening will be followed by a conversation with director Gareth Evans and the film’s star, Iko Uwais.
