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 ... Written by

When Rama is fighting his captors in the car, the scene cuts away briefly after he starts to gain the upper hand. When it cuts back, the two passengers in the front and back-right seats are clearly not attacking him and appear to be perfectly calm, as if Rama is not trying to escape. See more »
Insanely Brilliant ! Gareth Evans has outdone himself !!
What is the most resilient parasite? An Idea! Yes, Evans has created something with his unbelievably, incredibly and god- gifted mind which will blow the minds of the audience away. The world premiere of the movie, directed by Hollywood's most inventive dreamers, was shown in London and has already got top notch reviews worldwide and has scored maximum points! Now the question arises what the movie has that it deserve all this? Not many think that this movie could achieve the status the previous one achieved but mark my words, it will provide double entertainment as the previous one.. Sure its ending is also not up to the mark as the previous one but Iko Uwais is the star his action sequences, his comic timing and his one liners are so brilliant that u might tempt to give an Oscar to him right away! We may never see martial arts films quite like these again, and that's fine. Evans had something special to say with his time in the trenches, and he's ended on his own terms. To conclude, I would just say before your life ends, do yourself a favor by experiencing this exceptionally lucid classic created by Evans!
