THE RAID 2 (aka The Raid: Retaliation, The Raid 2: Berandal) is an upcoming Indonesian action film directed by Gareth Evans. Set to premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, it is a sequel to the 2012 hit The Raid: Redemption. Iko Uwais is reprising his role as Rama. In addition, the film stars Alex Abbad, Julie Estelle, Tio Pakusadewo, Arifin Putra, Oka Antara, and Cecep A. Rahman. Japanese actors Ryuhei Matsuda (松田龍平), Kenichi Endo (遠藤憲一) and Kazuki Kitamura (北村一輝) are also joining the film.
Immediately following the events of the original, THE RAID 2 tracks Officer Rama as he is pressured to join an anticorruption task force to guarantee protection for his wife and child. His mission is to get close to a new mob boss, Bangun, by befriending his incarcerated son, Uco. Rama must hunt for information linking Bangun with corruption in the Jakarta Police Department while pursuing a dangerous and personal vendetta that threatens to consume him and bring his mission--and the organized crime syndicate--down around him.
