Not Quite A Haiku Review: The Raid 2 (2014)

The-Raid-2-Mosaic-Poster-Crop
In life outside the block,
Everything is bigger but just as intense.
We’re back in Jakarta, bitches.

Fists, hammers, guns, glass, baseballs.
Nicolas Winding Refn wishes he made this.
Try keeping your mouth shut…

Choreographed beyond actual human comprehension,
‘Are you not entertained?!’ Gareth Evans cries?
Punch walls – they don’t retaliate.

‘Berandal’ means ‘badass’ or ‘scoundrel’.
Suck it up, don’t fuck it up.
Indonesian police corruption really blows.

My favourite film of 2014,
Soz McQueen, this is my new jam.
GO ON RAMA, MY SON!

VERDICT: 5/5
