Review: The Raid 2: Berandal

Mar 28 // Alec Kubas-Meyer
[embed]217269:41228:0[/embed] The Raid 2: BerandalDirector: Gareth EvansRelease Date: March 28, 2014Country: IndonesiaRating: R  First, a history lesson: The Raid wasn’t supposed to happen. Director Gareth Evans wanted to make a prison-centric gang film called Berandal (which means “Thug” in Indonesian), also starring Iko Uwais, but although they produced a pretty awesome teaser (a fight scene in a bathroom between Uwais and a whole bunch of baddies), production halted when they realized that there simply wasn’t enough money to make whatever it is that the film was supposed to be. So instead, Evans and his team made The Raid, a film with one primary location that was complicated only in its stellar choreography. The film was a massive success, and Evans got the money he needed to make the Berandal he had always dreamed of. For the purposes of this review, I’ll be referring to the original film as The Raid and this film as Berandal. I will be doing some direct comparisons a lot. If you haven’t seen The Raid, go fix that immediately, come back, and then salivate at the thought of just how much better this film is. You can just look at the run time and know that you’re in for something epic. While the original concept may have focused on a prison gang, Berandal goes so much further than that. This isn’t The Raid in a prison; there is a big world out there, and plenty more people for Iko Uwais to punch. Berandal gives him the chance. In fact, Berandal is like the anti-Raid, because that film’s simplicity was kind of the point. You knew from the beginning who the characters were, what their goals were, and what the stakes were. Everything made perfect sense and there were no real surprises. The single location and linear timeline made everything extremely easy to follow. You could just sit back and enjoy what you were watching. Berandal is not that. Berandal is a big, epic, reasonably interesting crime story, and as with any big epic crime story, it’s complicated. Two hours after the chaos of the first film, Rama (Iko Uwais), his injured comrade, and his traitorous boss meets a cop who tells him some bad news: he messed with the wrong guys, they want him dead, they will kill him, and remember that wife and kid of his? Yep. Them too. But the cop is willing to keep him safe if he’ll join an undercover operation, get in with an Indonesian crime syndicate, and help take down the corrupt cops that allow them to thrive (specifically Reza, brought up in the end of The Raid as the traitor who backed Tama and his operation). But Rama doesn’t want to be a part of this operation. Until he finds out his brother has been brutally murdered by Bejo, a new face to the seedy underworld and a man with aspirations of grandeur. Then he wants revenge and joins the underworld, to the detriment of every person who had ever thought being a gang member might be an intelligent career path. I didn’t have that much trouble following the film after the first fifteen or so minutes. The opening scenes go through three different time periods with no real indication of what is when, which makes it somewhat difficult to manage, especially compared to The Raid. But once it gets into it, the intrigue and betrayals and layers of characters and tensions and histories aren’t actually too hard to follow. You just have to pay attention, lest you end up like some of the people at the screening I attended, who were having a pow-wow about who was who and what they were trying to do. At some point, they must have zoned out, and in that moment the film lost them. It's not the most intellectually stimulating story, but it works well enough. If you’ve seen the trailers (and you should, because they don’t spoil anything and are awesome in their own right), you will have some sense of the variety of locations, but it doesn’t really strike you like the film’s first image does. Right then, I was in for something different, something big (as if the 148 minute runtime didn’t clue me in). Where The Raid took place exclusively in tight spaces, Berandal opens with an extreme wide shot of a massive field. There’s green everywhere, something the first film lacked entirely (although the colors are as muted as ever). It looks impressive, but you don’t realize just how vast this location is until a tiny little sedan appears in the lower left corner. Then you realize that the little ant thing digging a hole nearby is actually a human. Then you see a man with a bag over his head pulled from the car and brought towards the whole in the ground. Then you realize that that hole is about to become a grave. And then you think, “Gareth Evans, you have my attention.” As a counterpoint to The Raid, it is literally perfect. In fact, it’s one of the best opening shots in recent memory. And that’s important, because Berandal is the film that proves that Gareth Evans is not just a one-trick pony. The Raid is a spectacular martial arts film, and a completely serviceable narrative one. But simplicity was both a blessing and a curse: In 100 minutes, The Raid rings basically all of the creativity it possibly could out of that one location. But even so: it’s a run-down apartment complex. It makes excellent use of the space, but that run-down apartment is only new and exciting for so long (Evans’ first collaboration with Uwais, Merantau, is a more interesting film to look at due to its variety of colors and locations, even though it’s massively inferior in every other way). Berandal takes the good looks of Merantau and the general quality of The Raid and cranks them both up to 11. With shots ranging from extremely wide to extremely close and with a color pallete that would impress Kubrick, there is always something exciting to look at. The violence is stunning (and stunningly graphic). The Raid pulled few punches; Berandal pulls none. That opening scene ends with a point blank shotgun blast to the side of someone’s head, but it doesn’t cut until after the face has started to disintegrate. If you can’t stomach gore, Berandal is going to hurt you, and it’s going to hurt you badly. Remember in the opening scene of the first film when Tama, the ultimate target of their operation, hit that dude with the hammer? No you don’t, because the camera whip-panned away from the action as he struck. To make up for that one moment of hidden violence, Berandal gives you a young villainess who fights exclusively with a hammer. Actually, two of them. Her and her aluminum bat-wielding buddy make for some of Rama’s more colorful opponents in the film, showcasing their own prowess on subway trains and sidewalks, each taking on hordes as big as any found in The Raid. Also in the cast is Yayan Ruhian, who played Mad Dog in the first film, which is... problematic. While he is presented differently, my first thought when I saw him was, “Seriously?” I didn’t even consider that he might have been playing a different role, because that makes no sense. His near-invincibility in The Raid was almost comedic, and I wondered if somehow he had recovered in the two years that Rama was in prison. And because of his dumb beard, I couldn’t even see if there was a scar on his throat or not representing the lightbulb that (supposedly) took him out. That he has a name doesn’t help, because obviously “Mad Dog” isn’t a name. So why is he in the movie at all? Well, because he’s one of the fight choreographers, along with Uwais. Having him play a part, then, makes it a lot easier for them. Also, he’s generally awesome. I can totally understand wanting him to be there, but my mind took the return of Mad Dog to a dozen places that the film didn’t end up going, because it wasn’t Mad Dog. Considering the bushy hair and beard, people who haven’t seen The Raid as recently (or as frequently) as I have may not even notice, but for those who do, here’s your warning. But as odd as it was that Ruhian played a role, I’m certainly glad he worked on the film. He is a fantastic martial artist, and clearly one of the best fight choreographers working today. As a team, he and Uwais are basically unstoppable. Berandal proves that, because the scale of these brawls is beyond belief. The first fight in the film, less than 15 minutes in, pits Rama against at least a dozen random guys in a bathroom stall (it’s a recreation of the original Berandal trailer, actually, though a hell of a lot cooler). Even though it’s relatively short, the bar is already raised; none of the one-on-many fights in the original film can match it. And then it gets better. And bigger. And crazier. In fact, the scope of these fights is so massive that there isn’t a real one-on-one fight until the last battle of the entire film (the last shot of the trailer sets it up). It takes place two hours and fifteen minutes into a two and a half hour movie, and it is every bit as awesome as you would hope (imagine Jaka vs. Mad Dog on steroids and you’ll still have no idea). But it’s not all buttercups and rainbows, because Berandal has seams where its predecessor does not. Perhaps it’s because I never saw The Raid in theaters and cuts were hidden by the smaller picture, but I noticed a lot more little editing quirks to make certain strikes work in the sequel. I don’t mean that every other move I saw some missing frames or anything like that. It’s important to note, though, that I was also looking for mistakes. I wanted to pull back the curtain and see how these shots were done. I wanted to see the master at work. Some of these cuts were tiny, slight shifts of the action by maybe an inch (of a theater screen), but they’re there. If you aren’t looking, though, I can’t imagine you’d see them. It’s almost certainly a consequence of Berandal’s most impressive aspect: the length of its shots. There aren’t any shots quite as long as, say, Oldboy’s hallway fight (although one moment during the absolutely massive prison fight certainly had shades of that), but there are times where the camera just keeps on rolling. And it was sometimes in those shots that I saw those tiny cuts. Mistakes are made during long takes, and just as reel changes were masked in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope, many long takes nowadays are composites of multiple shots. It seems plausible that the shift from one take to another could be the reason for some of this jumpiness. The reality is that the use of weapons like hammers and knives that pierce through dozens of people means that some of what you’re seeing has been digitally altered, adding gore or non-retractable blades or what have you. But that does nothing to take away from the brilliant choreography, shot composition, or performances. So many of the things that Evans and his team pulled off in this film boggled my mind. There are shots that I can’t explain, moves that make no sense, and entire scenes that should not work but do. And in those moments, you understand that Berandal is in a class all its own. Honestly, there never could have been a film like Berandal before now. Like Gravity, it is a showcase for what the digital revolution has allowed filmmakers to do. Gareth Evans couldn’t have made Berandal when he tried a few years back. Nobody could have. But now it’s been made, and we’re in a new era, a post-Berandal world where the bar has been set so astronomically high that anyone hoping to match it should probably just give up and do something else with their life. So, Mr. Evans, you have my attention. Let’s see what you’ve got planned for The Raid 3. Mike Cosimano: While I don't agree with Alec that Berandal is the best action movie ever made, it's certainly up there. For a movie where so many people are getting bludgeoned, stabbed, kicked, shot, and otherwise murdered, I consider it a high compliment that I never got tired. Most action movies with this amount of brutality are just exhausting. But Gareth Evans knows how to space out the punching and let the film breathe. It's a lesson filmmakers of every genre could learn. Sometimes you have to give your audience a chance to process what they've seen.And there's a lot to process in Berandal. Every scene is expertly crafted, right down to the dialogue. I'm really looking forward to drooling over high-def screenshots once this flick hits Blu-Ray. If my press junket hadn't told me about Evans' filmography beforehand, I would have bet actual cash that he was an old pro.  I saw this movie a couple weeks ago, and I've had a difficult time getting it out of my brain ever since. Alec was dead on with his assessment of the opening scene. It's gorgeously shot and immensely memorable, but that's a fair descriptor of the whole film. When you see it, go with friends and make sure you've got a bloc of time freed up afterwards for digestion. You'll be yelling at each other excitedly for a couple hours at the very least, slowly realizing that you just saw an instant classic. 89 - Exceptional

Liz's 5 Hottest Movie Hunks of 2013

Jan 16 // Liz Rugg
I mean, if you know me at all you probably already assumed Ryan Gosling would be on this list. Just LOOK AT HIM. Gosling was in Only God Forgives and The Place Beyond The Pines in 2013, the latter of which he co-stared with his real life girlfriend, Eva Mendez. I think one reason so many people have crushes on Gosling is that he tends to play these super badass, tough, bad-boy characters, but in real life he's a huge sweetheart. Bonus picture: Ryan Gosling and a baby. C'mon!!!!!! Ughhh. Casey Affleck. If you've listened to old episodes of Flixist's podcast, Flixistentialism, (RIP) you'll already know that everyone on the cast has a boner for Casey Affleck. Especially Geoff. And can you blame us? He's so pretty! Plus in Ain't Them Bodies Saints he plays a fugitive who will stop at nothing to get home to his beloved wife (played by Rooney Mara) and daughter. Not only is Affleck attractive, but his character's unyielding love for his wife is practically superhuman. Ugh. Charlie Hunnam is probably best known for his recurring role as Jax in the television series Sons of Anarchy. In 2013 however, the English actor made it to the big-time action screen in Pacific Rim. While the flashy blockbuster may be ultimately forgettable, Hunnam sure looks good in a Jaeger Pilot suit.... Oh, Armie Hammer. I may not have liked The Lone Ranger at all, but one of it's bright spots, I must admit, is the lovably naive and goodhearted character Hammer plays. Hammer strikes a place with his Lone Ranger that is both undeniably virtuous and goofy. It's actually a shame in my opinion that Hammer stared in this flop. Hopefully it will lead to more opportunities for him (and more opportunities for us to see his cute face) in the future. Joaquin Phoenix's character in Her is so wholly different from most characters he's played in the past few years. In Her he is sensitive, nuanced, quiet, and entirely relatable. What's more, since his main love interest in the film is (spoiler?) an operating system -- represented as simply a voice in a computer -- he does almost all of the acting by himself, and completely pulls it off. Plus, those pants he wears. Mmm. Honorable Mention 1: Joaquin Phoenix's mustache.Just look at it. Honorable Mention 2: The entire cast of Magic Mike.Because how could we not. Seriously. This list is meant to reflect my own personal views, but if there's any hot movie dudes you guys think I missed from 2013, come at me!!

Review: Fast & Furious 6

May 23 // Nick Valdez
[embed]215658:40122:0[/embed] Fast & Furious 6Director: Justin LinRelease Date: May 24, 2013Rating: PG-13 Almost the entire gang returns (Don Omar, Tego Calderon, and Eva Mendes are noticeably absent) as Hobbes (Dwayne Johnson) goes to Dom (Vin Diesel) for help in catching a new crew of skilled drivers, led by Shaw (Luke Evans), who are stealing parts of a vague government super weapon. Dom is uninterested at first until Hobbes reveals that Dom's ex-girlfriend Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) didn't die like Dom thought she did and is now helping Shaw run that crew of super evil mercenary racers. Dom then recruits the old gang (Gal Gadot, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Ludacris, and Paul Walker) as they work with Hobbes and earn full pardons in the process.  Admittedly, it's hard to write that summary and not chuckle a bit. Right after I watched the film (and began writing this review) I had to pinch myself to make sure what I saw, was in fact, something I indeed saw. I just watched a film about a crew of street racers taking down a doppelganger crew (this troupe is hilariously mocked and turned around in the dialogue) of street racing thieves and it involved tanks, Dwayne Johnson as a one man-one liner delivery machine, Batmobiles, a giant planet plane, nitrous oxide, and two Gina Carano and Michelle Rodriguez (two of the most badass women ever) fights. Fast & Furious 6 does indeed exist. And it is gloriously ridiculous. But...how much credit should it get for its self aware stupidity? Tons.  2009's Fast & Furious (the fourth part of this now seven film saga) felt much like an experimental transition between types of movies. It carried on the street racing shtick from Tokyo Drift (it's also extremely important to note that Tokyo Drift is technically the last story in the F&F timeline) while beginning to integrate greater series themes like crime in a foreign land while the street races became less realistic and grandiose. It had its faults, but its universe eventually led to the greatness that was Fast Five, a film in which two Dodge Chargers could toss around a million pound bank vault with little problem. Why is this important to bring up now? Because much of Fast & Furious 6 feels like an experimental transition.  The bold and smart step I mentioned? It's Furious 6's complete withdrawal from any sort of reality. The commitment to its stupidity leads to all sorts of spectacular (and surprisingly practical) stunts that could rival any Michael Bay film. In fact, I can say without a doubt that Furious 6's stunts have somehow set a new standard for not only the series, but any action film that involves cars. The Ludacris nature of its new direction not only applies to the stunts, but to the characters (and their interactions with each other) as well. While the film's dialogue and superfluous use of words like "family" and "honor," have been slightly charming in the past (and part of the reason Fast and Furious became a success in the first place), they're blown way out of proportion here and somehow aren't a detriment to the film. Lots of the film's "sure okay, whatever" ("You want to chase after your formerly dead ex-girlfriend? Sure okay, whatever") decisions in the film are written off as "WE'RE FAMILY" and it's completely fine.  Fast and Furious used to fall apart as soon as the crew left their vehicles. Thankfully, that's not the case anymore. Now that Fast and Furious begins the turn towards action, there are plenty of hand to hand fights with fight choreography getting much better (one of the better scenes involves one of the stars from The Raid: Redemption, Joe Taslim, getting to strut his stuff). Don't expect greasy bald men wrestling here. People are thrown against walls with minimal effort, Dwayne Johnson hilariously apes interrogation violence, and he even gets to throw a People's Elbow. Although, Don Omar and Tego Calderon's humorous exchanges are sorely missed, Tyreese and Ludacris thankfully make up for them in spades. Fast & Furious 6 isn't a perfect film (every interaction with a Londoner paints them all in an extremely negative light as they become prejudiced Anti-Americans, there's an arguable lapse in pace during the second act as the plot's thin premise loses steam, not everyone will enjoy its overblown machismo), but it's definitely a celebration of itself. From the openings credits, a montage of the five previous films, to its explosive third act (stay for a bit after the films ends for a very serious treat), the film is constantly firing on all cylinders. There's a difference between films that are unintentionally funny and a film that knowingly accepts that it's stupid. Furious 6 in no way refers to its audience in a derogatory manner. It instead decides to revel in the fact that most everyone will expect dumb things and delivers it to them on a silver platter. Justin Lin may not be returning for the seventh part, but that's a good thing. Fast & Furious 6 is definitely his magnum opus. I can't wait to see where we could possibly go on from here. Space?  Geoff Henao: Fast & Furious 6 has been announced as Lin’s final film in the series, so it only makes sense that he leaves with a bang. It’s still not going to garner a great critical response or make audiences re-think action films, but it’s wholly entertaining and the very definition of a Hollywood summer movie. The future of the series will depend on James Wan's vision in next film, but if the post-credits scene is any indication, I get the feeling Fast & Furious 7 will help elevate the series to an even higher level. 80 -- Great Matthew Razak: It may be that you can't stand Vin Diesel's gravely voice. It may be that the sight of Paul Walker getting paid to act is unbearable to you. It may be that you have hated all the other Fast & Furious films. Whatever reasons you may have for not seeing this movie throw them out the window because the final action sequence involving a cargo plane, grappling hooks, body slams, explosions, fist fights on top of cars and pretty much everything but the kitchen sink is worth sitting through anything. A masterful bit of summer action that sees Lin leaving the series he ushered into greatness with a bang. 82 -- Great
