The original followed a S.W.A.T. team which becomes trapped in a tenement run by a ruthless mobster and his army of killers and thugs. In the sequel, the lone survivor goes undercover to infiltrate a new mob syndicate.
The original,”The Raid: Redemption,” was such a huge hit that not only did Sony Classics come on to the sequel, but Screen Gems is planning to remake.
