Video Interview: Gareth Evans & Iko Uwais talk ‘The Raid 2’

by Phil Wheat

He thought it was over. After fighting his way through a seemingly impenetrable building filled with gangsters and madmen, rookie Jakarta cop Rama (Iko Uwais) thought his mission was done and he could live a normal life. He couldn’t have been more wrong…

His brutal and bloody victory has attracted the attention of the top level underworld kingpins. With his family now in danger, Rama has only one choice to protect them: he must go undercover, infiltrate the criminal organisation that runs the city and work his way to the top until he reaches the corrupt politicians, police and gang bosses who secretly pull the strings. So Rama begins a new odyssey of violence, taking on the new identity of a vicious thug and entering prison in order to win the trust of the incarcerated son of a prominent crime lord to join the gang himself and take them down once and for all.

In this interview for Nerdly, film correspondent Joel Jaggar talks to director/writer Gareth Evans and star Iko Uwais about the original idea for The Raid 2 and it’s connection to The Raid
