Blunt Reviews Presents: The Raid 2 (2014)

the raid 2

I confess myself disappointed. When I first watched The Raid I was taken back by how fantastic it was; I loved it. What happened with the sequel? It seems like both the style and the substance were drained out, not completely, but a rather high percentage, leaving us with this deflated balloon of a film. I know it’s a larger scale and it was ambitious but I just didn’t like it. I liked The Raid because it was simplicity mastered perfectly. This is a large scale film not done particularly well. It’s not totally awful, but it is massively flawed.
