The Raid 2
Pit anywhere from 5 to 15 thugs against one lone tough and instead of a dogpile, the bad guys line up like they’re in a bakery waiting for their numbers to be called. (Don’t any of these maroons pack a firearm? And, more importantly, haven’t they seen Billy Jack?)
This scene is repeated at least a dozen times in Raid 2, Gareth Evans’s monumentally tedious, 148-minute (!) followup to his fanboy favorite of two years ago. It’s one long vacation from logic followed by another: we see our lead ditch his wire the second he’s sprung from prison, yet the subsequent strip search is played for suspense. The characters occasionally take a break from kicking and clawing at each other long enough to spout more expository dialogue than you’d find in a dozen Christopher Nolan pictures.
On a humane note, while many lives are lost to brutal car chases, no airbags were deployed during the making of this picture.
