IGN have unleashed another full trailer for Gareth Evans‘ intense action sequel, The Raid 2, which has been hailed as “The Dark Knight of action movies”.

The Raid 2: Berandal (original tilte) premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and recently hit SXSW with “the blunt force of an aluminum baseball bat to the mouth”.

Berandal is described as a big, epic, reasonably interesting crime story, and as with any big epic crime story, it’s complicated. If you remember the days as a teenager when you’d leave an action film so exhilarated, you’d start exchanging air jabs with your best friend in the theater lobby… okay, The Raid 2 is that movie.

At the final screening, in Salt Lake City,when was met by truly appreciative applause, Evans said:

You don’t even know if it’s good yet.

But apparently, the audience knew.

Starring Iko Uwais, Julie Estelle (Macabre), Alex Abbad (Merantau), Marsha Timothy (The Forbidden Door), Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, and Cecep Arif Rahman, the sequel to The Raid hits theaters on March 28.

Watch the last trailer with some incredible new glimpses of the action and get ready to scream “HOLY F*CKING SH*T!”

Immediately following the events of the original, The Raid 2 tracks Officer Rama as he is pressured to join an anti-corruption task force to guarantee protection for his wife and child. His mission is to get close to a new mob boss, Bangun, by befriending his incarcerated son, Uco. Rama must hunt for information linking Bangun with corruption in the Jakarta Police Department while pursuing a dangerous and personal vendetta that threatens to consume him and bring his mission-and the organized crime syndicate-down around him.
