The Raid 2 is something to behold in that director Gareth Evans has truly taken the action movie genre and practically put it on steroids, which is teased in this The Raid 2 trailer and clip!

We caught up with the man behind the film, Evans, and his star Iko Uwais for a video exclusive interview to explore -- frankly -- how on earth he did what he did!

Evans first gained our notice when he released The Raid: Redemption, which landed near the top of our list of 19 action movies that changed everything.

The story follows an Indonesian undercover policeman who infiltrates a crime syndicate in hopes of bringing them down. And we are not exaggerating here: It is literally one man against a whole city's worth of criminals!
