The film continues where the first film ends. It continues with Rama (Iko Uwais) going undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and to uncover the corruption in his own police force.

” The Raid 2 : Berandal ” Japanese guest stars Interview w/ Cinema Today
Left to right: Kitamura Kazuki, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi, Gareth Evans (director)
The director is Welsh, he's married to a half Indonesian-Japanese lady, so he lives in Indonesia. He stated over and over that although he's not Indonesian, but the film is pure Indonesian production, cos 99% of the crews are Indonesian. There are only 2 non-Indonesian crews which are himself and the cinematographer. The Raid(the first film) achieved #11 in Hollywood box office. With USD 1 million budget, they roped USD 3 million sales. The sequel, The Raid 2: Berandal, just finished filming and currently on post-production, and will be released early next year.
I love Kitamura, of course, not just because from ATARU, i've seen him in a lot of dramas and movies before. And my friend told me, his little brother was his interpreter on the filming set…. I sooooooooo envy my friend's brother!
The Japanese guest stars were interviewed by Cinema Today when they had a filming in Jakarta.
Q: What do you think after you finished shooting with them ?
Evans: I think it went very well. I'm a big fan of these guys, myself. I was so excited. It was really fun!
Kitamura: It was an exciting filming. I'm sure all the cast was looking forward to it. But I've met Gareth before when I was shooting ” KILLERS ” (Kitamura's other Indonesian film yet-to-be-released). That time, I asked him to cast me, so it came true. I was suppose to be nervous, but I felt quite lighthearted.
Matsuda: I talked to the director before the shooting and I read the script together with him. To be honest, I was very worried about scenes in Japanese in a foreign film. But then I know the director is very understanding, so I was relieved and shot the scene. It left me quite an impression that all the crews on the set were very relaxed.
Endo: I was also worried about the scenes where we had to speak Japanese, but just like Ryuhei-kun said, they could grasp the rhythm and energy that was released from the Japanese lines, so it was quite accurate. When I watched the first film, I was really looking forward to this filming. I'm also happy that I can work together with my favorite actors in a foreign film like this.
Kitamura: The director, Gareth actually did all the camera test to the camera rolling all by himself. So rather than shooting what is ready to be shot, he shot all the process until it was ready. As a person who play a role, I really enjoyed making this film.
Endo: I agree about that. Sometimes, we, actors, does better during the test rather than the real shooting. Since he did all the shooting, I feel relieved that the director would know which one's best to be picked for the final cut.
Q: Do you have any reason for doing all the process from test to rolling ?
Evans: When I was writing the script, I have already pictured how the characters would say their lines in my head. But, when the actors recite their lines on the set, that will change. As I discuss it with the actors, that would also make changes, so I tried to roll the camera as much as I can. Rather than simply turning a script to a movie, it's better to add changes during the filming, in my opinion. I think it's a waste if I didn't make use of what's best from these experienced men, for this film.
Q: How was working with the Indonesian people?
Kitamura: They're so carefree! In Japan, with just a little bit of noise, people on the set would get angry. But here, everyone seem to be having fun while doing their own jobs, so they just went ” sssshhh ” while smiling. The director is also good in interacting with the actors, so I feel relaxed in acting the role.
Endo: They don't worry much about details and the simple type, but once the camera's rolling everyone's expressions changed. I think their ability to concentrate is amazing. The makeup artist was all laughing until the camera was rolling, but they're very punctual and detailed doing their jobs. The atmosphere was lively.
Matsuda: When I went to the set in the morning, there was a big noise roaring… I thought that was amazing. (laugh) Just like what Kitamura-san said, there wasn't any nervous atmosphere, so we could act our roles relaxed.
Filem ni mmg ganas. Patutlah kena banned. Ada
close-up head shot, kelar leher tawanan, dll.
Kalau Sergio Leone (The Good, The Bad and The
Ugly) buat filem martial arts, hasilnya mungkin
lebihkurang mcm The Raid 2. Direction Gareth Evans
mmg handal. Fight choreography bertaraf antarabangsa —
cuma lebih ganas dari kebanyakan filem martial arts HK.
Pelakon yg memikul watak jahat mmg betul2 mcm
gangster, rasa nak tumbuk dan tampar mereka.
Puas tengok adegan2 lawan, termasuk
satu dalam toilet cubicle — hero duduk dlm tandas
yg berkunci, berpuluh2 penjahat pukul pintu tandas
utk masuk dan belasah sang hero. Hero tarik dua tiga
org ke dlm tandas, tutup pintu, belasah mereka, buka
pintu tandas, ambil lagi beberapa org masuk, tutup pintu,
belasah…hehehe. Last-last, 18 penjahat gugur dlm
tandas kecil tu.
Lebih bagus dari The Raid yg pertama. Byk org suka filem
pertama tapi saya rasa pertarungan dlm Raid 1 mcm repetitive dan
plotnya terlalu simple. Kali ini: perfect! Tak sabar nak tengok
Gred: 4.8 dari 5.0 bintang.
