Uwais plays a young man who washes ashore, an amnesiac with a serious head injury whose past comes back to haunt him shortly after being nursed back to health by a young doctor. Violence ensues. Sweet, sweet violence.
During the Japanese invasion of 1937, when a wealthy martial artist is forced to leave his home and work to support his family, he reluctantly agrees to train others in the art of Wing Chun for self-defense.
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.

In the revised Berandal script, the main character's motivation was changed and turned into the main role of Rama, an undercover cop. By giving a new identity and role for Rama as an undercover cop, the script gained a new thrill element. Also, in the new script, Evans added an action scene which takes place in a taxi. See more »
During a shootout, Topan crawls to his safe to retrieve a gun. He hurriedly dials in a combination, grabs the door's handle, and then pulls the safe open without first turning the handle.
That can only mean that the safe wasn't actually locked in the first place. Dialing in the right combination allows the handle to be rotated. It's only through turning the handle do the bolts move to lock or unlock the door. See more »
US release was cut "by frames" (as stated by director Gareth Evans) to avoid an NC-17 rating by the MPAA. The cuts only total around 5 seconds. They include a medium shot of Lieutenant Wahyu being shot, a brief additional shot of Uco cutting the throat of one of the bound men, Prakoso stabbing one of his attackers at the nightclub three times in the neck with a broken bottle, shot extensions when Hammer Girl attacks the bodyguards on the subway, and a longer shot of Rama killing the assassin in the kitchen.

Okay so where do I begin I saw the first one and It blew me away. I watch so many movies no matter the genre. So while I was watching this sequel my heart was beating very fast and the adrenaline was pumping. It takes place 2 hours after where the first one ended. Swear to god every time there was a fight on I felt it and I kept shaking. The scene that had me pumped was the train scene and the prison fight. There is a lot of martial artist involved in this film which makes me love it even more because they use real stunt men and this movie just requires skill. This is by far the best action movie sequel ever produced and I hope it gets noticed by everyone around the world. Best one on one showdown in the end. If you love action movies and would love to turn your brain off for a moment then this is your candy. My favorite action movie ever, sorry Bruce Lee. 10/10 MUST SEE!
