A set of eight new images from The Raid 2: Berandal have been unveiled online – needless to say, they pack a punch.

Released over at Latino Review , the shots show off fist-bruising hero Iko Uwais as Rama, who returns after busting his way through the epic first Raid .

Basically, these images are mostly all about the badass fighting – there are muddy skirmishes, jail-set stand-offs and even one knife-fight that takes place in a kitchen (see above).

Again directed by Welsh filmmaker Gareth Evans, The Raid 2 f ollows on directly from the first film as Uwais is sent undercover to bring down a criminal mastermind.

We saw the film at Sundance, and you can read our review here .
