Not entirely pulling a Bill O’Reilly on stage. But when the first screening of The Raid 2: Berandal at SxSW had to end abruptly due to technical issues (no subtitles) director Gareth Evans asked two of his main casts, Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian, to come up on the stage and do a live demonstration of their impressive fight choreography.
What the shit indeed. The mantra-the show must go on- is real and thankfully the director and cast did not pull a Michael Bay at CES. If y’all don’t know about the first Raid flick, then you probably have been living under a rock. It’s everything an action movie fiend would want: sick fight scenes and no bullshit plot. Anyways, here’s the trailer for the sequel just to keep y’all in the loop:
Look at that intensity and form at two minutes and 26 seconds though!
