It was something of a surprise when 'The Raid' a low budget film from Indonesia directed by a man from Merthyr Tydfil turned out to be one of the greatest action films ever made. Rather than accept the Hollywood offers that flooded in director Gareth Evans and star Iko Uwais have stayed in Indonesia for an equally incredible follow up. This time not a simple action film but a crime epic as super cop Rama tackles crime and corruption on the mean streets of Jakarta. The film has received excellent reviews including scores of 8.9/10 at IMDB and 94% audience rating at Rotten Tomartoes.

The film starts at 8:45pm. I have set start time for 8pm so we can meet for a drink first (can anyone suggest somewhere?)

    Entertaining enough if overlong. I feel the first RAID is still the better film, because I like the simple structure of it.

    Very different from the original film but even more brutal! Some of the gaps between the action were overlong but I was entertained throughout. As the cinema wasn't busy we tried out the Premier seats - they seemed to be just as uncomfortable as the cheap seats but for different reasons!

      I agree, the movie was awesome such a shame I had to leave near the end due to bus times.

    As for the pre film drink, there's an O'Neill's literally across the road from the cinema. Never tried it but it probably serves beer...
