Gareth Evans and Iko Uwais of 'The Raid 2'

If you like action movies and can handle on-screen violence, "The Raid 2" almost without question will be the best movie you've seen in a long time. Seriously: The fight sequences are unbelievable, and the movie, again written and directed by Welsh filmmaker Gareth Evans and starring Indonesian martial artist/action star Iko Uwais, kicks things up about 500 notches from 2012's overrated, repetitive "The Raid: Redemption." At the Peninsula Hotel, Evans, 33, and Uwais, 31, taught me and my colleague Chris Sosa, a black belt in tae kwon do, fight choreography. -- Matt Pais Click here for the full interview
