Retro Review: The Raid 2: Berandal - Has Gareth Evans Created A Monster Franchise?

Submitted by petrocs on July 26, 2016 - 10:06pm


 

Foreign films have not done particularly well on U.S. soil, because audiences here tend to avoid films that contain subtitles and may also contain a storyline that reflects another culture's heritage (i.e. history or artistically). An always niche genre, martial arts films have usually fallen prey to this type of thinking and have not done well at the U.S. box office; unless of course they starred Jackie Chan and co-starred some American sidekick. Although martial arts films have a loyal following here in the U.S., many films are released at film festivals and even sometimes receive a limited release. This was the case with director Gareth Evans 2011 cult classic, The Raid: Redemption. After much praise on the awards circuit, the film went on to gross $4.5 million in the U.S., but built a legion of fans throughout the preceding years. Gareth Evans promised that a sequel would be forthcoming and it has; 2014 has brought us The Raid 2: Berandal.

Now playing in select theaters, opening in more Friday, April 11th!
