THE RAID 2 and THE RAID Double Feature Come to Lakeline Tomorrow Night!

Experience THE RAID 2 starting tomorrow at midnight at Alamo Lakeline. And if you need to get a recap of the original (or have been living under a rock and someone missed it) we also have THE RAID Double Feature playing that night as well.

THE RAID 2 and THE RAID Double Feature Come to Lakeline Tomorrow Night!

A few years back with THE RAID writer/director Gareth Evans truly emerged on the action film scene as a force with a striking vision and an unrelenting style. That film became an instant martial arts / action classic and, after a sequel was announced, the time in between lead to manic anticipation.

The teaser trailer for THE RAID 2 encompassed more action than most Hollywood blockbusters would dare dream and excitement grew. The lucky ones who saw it during SXSW last month made sure the expectations were sky high. Luckily, for fans, those expectations have been exceeded.

Taking place the hours following the original, THE RAID 2 finds SWAT newbie Rama (the amazing Iko Uwais) is now ordered to go undercover to stop an organization of ruthless criminals...over the span of years. While its predecessor is filled with wall-to-wall, jaw-dropping action, THE RAID 2 exceeds it by taking its time to allow drama to unfold. This is a Grade A action film of the highest order, but, because it gives characters room to grow and develop, it's also more than it.

Now you can experience it starting tomorrow at midnight at Alamo Lakeline. And if you need to get a recap of the original (or have been living under a rock and someone missed it) we also have THE RAID Double Feature playing that night as well.

And we've got special RAID 2 posters (see below) for Victory members attending the midnight and double feature tomorrow night. Supplies are limited, though, so make sure to pick up your ticket at the box office early.
