"...Evans also said the fight scenes were carefully structured so that the film would remain balanced.
“If it’s a three-minute fight scene, we want to put four or five punch lines in there. Punch lines are like those moments in the prison riot when the guy has his head kicked into the tile,” Evans said. “If you just stack (these moments) all up next to each other, it would (become) overkill.”
After designing the scenes, Evans said he and his team would create a video storyboard using crash mats and a video handy cam to figure out camera angles and editing details — a technique he developed while making the first “Raid” film.
“I’ve done all of my work in pre-production, so when it comes to the shoot we have this video as a guide track… and we’re just shooting the real version on set,” Evans said. “All the editing decisions have already been made, so by the end of that day I should have the perfect vision of that fight.”
