The first trailer for The Raid: Berandal has hit the internet and if first impressions are anything to go by, it will prove to be just as gun-blazing, blade-swinging, fist-pounding and blood-spurting as its predecessor, which saw breakout action star Iko Uwais do for pencak silat what Tony Jaa did for Muay Thai a decade ago.
Picking up directly where The Raid left off, the plot of Berandal (Indonesian for “thug”) sees Rama (Uwais) going undercover in a prison in order to infiltrate a Jakarta crime syndicate and expose the corruption amongst his police colleagues.
THE RAID: BERANDAL hits cinemas next year.
