Gareth Evans is a very skilled director of action. He knows how to conceive it, how to stage it, how to shoot and how to cut it. For that alone this film will be essential.
We're just a month and a bit away from the release of The Raid 2. That already makes it time to order The Raid and get that in your eyeholes, but it's also very, very cheap right now.
It actually makes me really want to see this movie, even though I know I'll regret it when people start getting graphically knifed and hammered to death.
Things have opened up somewhat since the first instalment.
First, it will play at the Sundance Film Festival.
Also including info on a Raid 2 fight sequence I previewed at Frightfest.
Gareth spills lots of juicy details about The Raid 2 and talks us through how he shot a prison sequence and a very tricky car chase. Also introducing Baseball Bat Man.
