Well, it should've been the best action movie of this year. Whisper it, some of us were hoping this decade. But I have to tell it as I see it - The Raid 2 is a huge disappointment. It's a long movie with very bad pacing, a mediocre gangster thriller. The movie gets to its narrative conclusion like a tortoise climbing a flight of stairs. Perhaps the biggest disappointment, for me, were the fight scenes - in general the sloppy camera work just refused to keep up with the chaos. How did this happen?
