The Raid 2 movie rating: red light

The Raid 2 red light Iko Uwais Cecep Arif Rahman

Arthouse martial-arts action that’s incredibly dull even when it’s being pornographic about its extreme bloody violence, and doesn’t even bother with the nominally original one-location conceit of the first film.
I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): hated the first film

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
