Movie Review: The Raid 2: Berandal

Though weary from battle, Officer Rama (Iko Uwais) is afforded no rest.  Mere hours after emerging from the bloodied hallways of a Jakarta apartment block, he’s thrown to the wolves once again.  This time, he goes undercover to infiltrate the powerful Bangun crime family.  He eventually becomes bodyguard and confidant to its heir apparent, the impetuous Uco (Arifin Putra).  As a result, he becomes privy to family business and gangland politics.  However, when an unsanctioned hit triggers an all-out gang war, Rama finds himself on the front lines.  Will he be able to fight his way out of the slaughterhouse once more?
