Story: Far from being able to lead a normal life, cop Rama is soon in the middle of another bloodbath. Operating undercover this time, he has bigger fish to fry. Or rather, pummel to a pulp.

Review: Picking up from where the last *Raid *left off (you don't necessarily have to have watched the last one to follow this movie), the wiry and wired Rama (Uwais) again has violence on his mind. His brother is left for dead in an open field by a gangster called Bejo (Abbad). Understandably, Rama is pissed off, but the retribution can wait. While the first part was about exfiltration, this one is the opposite, as it is about Rama's infiltration into the crime world's hive. And he can do so by going undercover under orders from his SWAT boss to take out the bad guys. And surprise, surprise, a bunch of crooked cops is also a target. Not unlike some early video games, he takes on suited and booted bad guys of increasingly powerful abilities in various stages.

Bangun (Pakusodewo) is the hyper mob boss whom everyone is terrified of. Uco (Putra) is his son and second-in-command. The interestingly-titled Hammer Girl (Estelle) and her brother Baseball Bat Man (Yulisman) go about doing pretty much what their names suggest, relentlessly. They'd do a psychotic butcher proud with their gory handiwork.

With baseball bats breaking bones aplenty, there are no double meanings or any subtle asides to dilute the action; this is pure violence. The only difference is, there is quite a maze that our protagonist has to wind his way through. Sub-plots and side-characters pop by (some are dispatched as quickly) now and then. But then again, this is a movie that is not seen for a plot, but for the action sequences. Conversely, it's the duration of this film that makes it seem overly long at times.

If you enjoy savage, on-screen action that is unabashedly over-the-top and even sometimes borders on pastiche with all the gangster film tropes, don't hesitate to go watch this.

Stylishly shot, edited with a lot of confidence in the audience's ability to follow parallel action, and ... faster and more brutal than anything else on the market. This time, the action scenes spring organically from the narrative, which makes them richer and more urgent.
