The Raid 2
After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen, rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought he could resume a normal life. He couldn’t have been more wrong.
Formidable though they may have been, Rama’s opponents in that building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever thought. His triumph has attracted the attention of predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his family: He must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld and climb through the hierarchy until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top.
