'The Raid 2: Berendal'
Chances are you missed Gareth Evans's first two fight flicks, Merantau and The Raid: Redemption. But you won't be able to escape the buzz for his Raid sequel, once again starring rising action stud Iko Uwais. Bigger, badder and more brutal than any fight flick in years – yet shot almost entirely in real time with minimal post-production tricks – it's both neck-snappingly new and as old-school as a fist to the face. —L.H.
