The Raid 2: Berandal (2014)

The Raid 2 is simply the greatest, the most complex, a standing ovation worth martial art movie ever made. It has topped the expectation and become a real “face breaking, ass kicking, neck twisting, hammer hitting, bone shattering film I have ever experienced.”

Immediately following the original classic The Raid: Redemption a.k.a Serbuan Maut at its very core, The Raid 2: Berandal ends up establishing itself as a helluva sequel and a more complex expansion to its predeccessor. More bone shattering inside!

Killers (2014)

“Killers is a slow-paced psychological thriller about 2 completely different men who are intertwined by fate. It’s a tale of obsession and awakening the evil within marking Mo Brothers’ leap of directorial career and all casts fabulous act.”

Since their directorial debut Dara (2008), which precedes the extended length Rumah Dara a.k.a Macabre (2009), The Mo Brothers–Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto–never stop spilling blood. While making their gory trademarks with chainsaw and antlers, Timo has expanded their gory universe through Libido, a segment in The ABCs of Death (2012) and Safe Haven in V/H/S 2 marking his collaboration with The Raid’s Gareth Evans. Well, set your thoughts of The Mo Bros’ filmography aside before watching Killers, since this movie is completely in different league from its predecessors. Yet, being different doesn’t then imply that Killers is a subtle one… ’cause it’s not. More killers here!
