Synopsis of The Raid 2: Berandal
The story of this film begins with a murder scene in a sugarcane field. Violence and fights are presented in a vulgar manner. Rama (Iko Uwais) always tries hard to destroy the criminal organizations that exist in his city, Jakarta. Rama, who is a member of the new police force, manages to eradicate a gang of drug dealers in the story of the sequel to the first film.
Then he finally caught the attention of Bunawar (Cok Simbara), who is an honest police officer. In the film The Raid 2: Berandal, he has a good and clean reputation as an undercover agent.
Meanwhile, Rama had to leave his family—his wife and children—to receive training so he could join a group of high-profile drug dealers. They did this so that Rama could safely infiltrate and annihilate their group. Because the drug group is a group that carries out illegal, dirty activities and also has a bribery scandal,
Rama must be trained as an agent with cold-blooded killing skills. Until finally, Bunawar and the team’s plan succeeded in making Rama an undercover agent and carrying out infiltration. In the synopsis of The Raid 2: Berandal, he has to infiltrate Ucok (Arifin Putra), who is in custody. Ucok is the son of a big mafia leader named Bangun (Tio Pakusadewo).
To simplify and smoothen the plan, Bunawar made Rama a prisoner who had to go to jail. Rama becomes a new convict who always makes noise with some of the other inmates. He did this to attract Ucok’s attention. After his efforts were successful, Rama gave Ucok a presentation about his skills in fighting without weapons. Furthermore, the two people established a closeness.
In the synopsis of The Raid 2: Berandal, the conditions in the prison are chaotic because of the riots. Rama saved Ucok, and together they ran away from the place.
After that, Rama joined Ucok’s group after Bangun recruited him as one of his men. Rama received a luxury apartment as a gift from Bangun. This was done by Bangun to thank him for saving his son from prison. Until finally, Rama became one of Bangun’s confidants in the group. He also takes part in an operation that Bangun and his men often carry out, namely collecting security money. They use this billing against businessmen who walk on illegal paths. Meanwhile, the operation was led by Ucok. Until one day, they were asking for security money from porn film entrepreneurs.
In the synopsis of The Raid 2: Berandal, Ucok asks for the security money they deposit to go up. However, Ucok’s wish was not well received by the film entrepreneur.
Alhasul, the fight was inevitable. However, the conflict was not about that. Actually, Bangun has another business conflict with some mafia originating from Japan.
Players and Reviews of The Raid 2: Hooligan
The director, Gareth Evans, was able to provide an interesting treat with slick scenes of fighting and shooting at close range. The act of killing always shows the act of slitting throats, shooting activities, and also the sadism of the actors, which is the hallmark of The Raid.
Apart from that, the synopsis of The Raid 2: Berandal also presents the action of speeding on the streets, which ends up being an interesting thing. The involvement of seasoned actors such as Roy Marten and young actors Alex Abbad and Oka Antara is what strengthens this film even more.
In addition, the presence of the beautiful actress Julie Estelle, who plays Hammer Girl, makes The Raid 2: Berandal more interesting. This girl’s ability to speak without dialogue and the ability to kill her sadistically using only a hammer deserve good recognition.
Meanwhile, the presence of Marsha Timothy and Cecep Arif added to this interesting side. Unmitigated, Gareth brought in actors from Japan, Kenichi Endo and Kazuki Kitamura, to add to the quality of The Raid 2.
