Will 'The Raid 2' Kick Ass Like the Original?

Gareth Evans's Indonesian action-flick The Raid: Redemption was a bloodthirsty action purist's dream come true: Skull-cracking, jaw-rattling, jugular-ripping hand-to-hand combat executed in the contained space of a mobster's headquarters with an utter minimum of mercy and almost no CGI. No film since has maintained that manic level of cage-match, fist-to-face bloodlust. Can Evans take it even further? It'll be fun to see him – and breakout action star Iko Uwais – give it a try.
