Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Raid 2 is the sequel to the ultra-violent Indonesian action film The Raid: Redemption, following the same lead character, who's now an undercover cop instead of a rookie. Violence is very strong, with many highly skilled martial arts scenes, but also lots of shooting, stabbing, slicing, blood, gore, and death. There's also an extended car chase with crashes. One scene takes place in a warehouse where porn videos are made, with a topless woman and some intense sex talk. Language includes frequent uses of "f--k," "s--t," and other words in the subtitles. Many of the gangster characters drink and smoke socially in clubs and in meetings, though no one is shown to be drunk. Since the movie is subtitled and runs 150 minutes, it's for hardcore action fans only.
One scene takes place in a warehouse where porn videos are made. A woman emerges from behind a curtain. She's topless and wearing a sex toy. It's suggested that she's been performing a "scene" behind the curtain and that a man is still back there. The woman complains about the man's "performance." In another scene, a man is asked to strip to prove he's not wearing a wire. Nothing sensitive is shown.
The movie is filled with incredibly strong martial arts violence and fighting. Guns are occasionally used, blades are used to stab people, bones are broken, and plenty of blood is spilled. Several major secondary characters die. A woman uses two hammers to beat up several people in a train car, with gory results. A man's face is burned on a grill. There's a car chase with crashing and people thrown from cars.
In subtitles, characters frequently use words including "f--k," "s--t," "prick," and "jerk."
The main character gets into fight after fight and battle after battle, beats up many men, kills a few, and destroys lots of property, with no real consequences. He does this, apparently, to protect his wife and child, but that's about it. He doesn't learn anything.
