Something is brewing in the Indonesian Film scene, which includes Cops, Indonesian Gansters, and Japanese Yakuza! THE RAID2 : BERANDAL, the sequel to the 2012 hit THE RAID: REDEMPTION, is soon to hit the circuit in March 2014!
The Raid: Redemption was a spectacular American debut for director Gareth Evans, so needless to say that expectations are high for his sequel film, Berandal. But for those who have only been loosely following this hit Indonesian martial arts franchise, you should be aware that The Raid 2 isn’t the final chapter of the story: this thing has been planned as a trilogy from the outset.
So The Raid 3 is already in the planning stages, and now, thanks to Evans himself, we have some early details about what the third chapter will be about.
WARNING – SPOILERS for The Raid: Redemption Follow!
When The Raid: Redemption ended, officer Rama (Iko Uwais) had escaped the death trap of Boss Tama’s high-rise apartment full of murderers and gangsters, thanks to the assistance of his estranged brother, Andi (Donny Alamsyah), who stayed behind to take over as head of Tama’s criminal empire.
However, the corrupt police officials that first manipulated Rama’s squad into Tama’s trap are still at large, and Rama learned that survival had only bought him a slightly extended lease on life, as he would be a marked man after the Tama operation.
Evans previously revealed that The Raid 2 would begin immediately after the first film, and the Berandal trailer revealed that this will indeed be the case – and that Rama will be in for a bigger, badder and bloodier battle than the one he just escaped.
A plot synopsis for the sequel further details how Rama will go deep cover into the prison system to befriend the son of the city’s crime boss as a means of ferreting out corruption – so where does that leave The Raid 3?
According to Evans’ Tweets about the two sequels (which were compiled by Dark Horizons):
