The new trailer for writer-director Gareth Evans’ The Raid 2 doesn’t need any words; the message comes across loud and clear through kicks, punches, and hammer swings.  It’s a brutal piece of work that teases just enough of the action to get adrenaline junkies salivating, without scaring off those of weaker constitutions by showing blood and gore.  The first trailer was good, but this cut really sells it.  (If you need more convincing, check out Matt’s Sundance review here.)

Starring Iko Uwais, Julie Estelle (Macabre), Alex Abbad (Merantau), Marsha Timothy (The Forbidden Door), Mathias MuchusTio Pakusadewo, and Cecep Arif RahmanThe Raid 2 opens in wide release on March 28th.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Raid 2:

He thought it was over. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen – a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls – rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldn’t have been more wrong.

Formidable though they may have been, Rama’s opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. And his triumph over the small fry has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, 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.

And so Rama begins a new odyssey of violence, a journey that will force him to set aside his own life and history and take on a new identity as the violent offender “Yuda.” In prison he must gain the confidence of Uco – the son of a prominent gang kingpin – to join the gang himself, laying his own life on the line in a desperate all-or-nothing gambit to bring the whole rotten enterprise to an end.

    That has got to be the best action I’ve seen since Chow-Yun Fat marched out of a hospital with a shotgun and a baby in his arms.

    amazing director and camera angles. The editing on this trailers was also superb. It’s like it was shot by someone that knew about martial arts and also films. They’ve just sold me this movie man. Can’t wait.

    Maybe this is just not my thing, but this trailer is not really selling me on it. The action does indeed look spectacular (and somewhat reminiscent of Jackie Chan in pacing and choreography), but I could only make out the vaguest of storylines underneath all the glorious punching, kicking, hammer-smacking, and shooting.

      Umm…who cares about story when you have Hammer Girl and Baseball Bat Boy?

        Einstein was right. Time is relative to the observer.
        When you’re looking down the barrel of a gun time slows down, your whole life flashes by, heartbreak and scars. Stay with it, and you can live a lifetime in that split second.

        Staggering on the mill roof in ice and snow and wild wind, I was a Ninja. My Kung Fu was strong. I wasn’t kidding anyone. At best, I was Superman on Kryptonite, about to fall through a skylight, down to where it was all going down.

        “So I guess I’d become what they wanted me to be, a killer. Some rent-a-clown with a gun who puts holes in other bad guys. Well that’s what they had paid for, so in the end that’s what they got. Say what you want about Americans but we understand capitalism. You buy yourself a product and you get what you pay for, and these chumps had paid for some angry gringo without the sensibilities to know right from wrong. Here I was about to execute this poor bastard like some dime store angel of death and I realized they were correct, I wouldn’t know right from wrong if one of them was helping the poor and the other was banging my sister…”

        There was no glory in this. I hadn’t asked for this crap. Trouble had come to me, in big dark swarms. The good and the just, they were like gold dust in this city. I had no illusions. I was not one of them. I was no hero. Just me and the gun, and the crook. My options had decreased to a singular course.

      LOL. First time I’ve read a person complain that a trailer doesn’t give enough plot away. I guess people will whine about anything these days. Sigh…
