Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto Talk V/H/S/2, Working as a Directorial Team, Future Collaborations, THE RAID 2, and More

When it comes to Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto I’m a new, but passionate fan. Last year Evans gave us The Raid: Redemption, a feature-length action masterpiece of balls-out violence and ass-kicking badassery.
