The Raid 2: Berandal

This weekend, the incredible action sequel The Raid 2: Berandal hits theaters, and it's going to blow you away. The film clocks in at two and a half hours, and you will be exhausted after you see Iko Uwais kick some serious ass. But what if I told you that the long running time still doesn't contain all of the action that writer and director Gareth Evans wanted in the film? Because at least one sequence had to be cut from the film, but thankfully, Evans has posted the entire four and a half minute scene online. But be wary, because it's brutal, bloody and not for the faint of heart. Don't watch it around children and probably not in public.

Here's the deleted scene from Gareth Evans' The Raid 2: Berandal (via Movies.com):

Gareth Evans talked about the difficulty of cutting the scene:

"This was probably the hardest for me to cut due to the fact that the production on this scene lasted around six days of shooting, it cost us a f**k load to make and it served to escalate the gang war out onto the streets involving people outside of the closed off intergang politics.

At the end of the day though, after discussing its worth it took us away from the central theme for a little too long with characters that would only exist in this scene alone."

Watch the latest online only trailer for the film, featuring a quote from Alex Billington, right here.

The Raid 2: Berandal, the sequel to The Raid, is written and directed by Welsh born filmmaker Gareth Evans who also directed the first film. Starring Iko Uwais, Arifin Putra, Alex Abad, Oka Antara, Tio Pakusadewo, Julie Estelle, Cecep Arif Rahman, Cok Simbara, Yayan Ruhian, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi, and Kitamura Kazuki, the film features our lead character Rama (Uwais) going undercover and infiltrating the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force. The film premieres at Sundance, and Sony Pictures Classics will release March 28th.

They should've spread the story that they cut the scene because it was too timid. It's what I would've done.

No wide release for a big sequel? Fucking pisses me off so much. I've been looking forward to this movie ever since the last one played in Everett Washington years ago.

You guys should use that DEMAND IT IN YOUR CITY petition website for this movie. That's what I did. Because seriously this shit is ridiculous. This needs to have a wide release.
