This has been in wide release for a week, and no topic yet!

Anyway, this is the sequel to the low budget ($400,000ish) Indonesian action crime flick, the Raid.  It picks up almost immediately after the end of that one, and is MUCH wider in scope, and almost twice as long to boot..  It also has some of the best action sequences ever committed to film.  It's a little too complicated, a little TOO long, and little too epic, as the film doesn't quite reach the Godfather or other crime epic levels of power needed to work for a nearly three hour run time...  But it's still extremely entertaining, and one hell of a ride.

All action fans must see it.  The final fight is one of the best ever created, up there with things like the end of Drunken Master 2. 

9/10 from me.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
