Critic Reviews for Headshot
the story can't sustain the bloated running time and the ongoing, gratuitous violence. It's not the best showcase for Uwais' skills when he's bringing his fists to a gunfight.
Headshot is rarely as good as Uwais, but he makes the bloody beat-em-up worth a look.
A bone-crunching Indonesian bloodbath that stars the same actor from The Raid and feels like it was cut together from that film's deleted footage.
This lethally brutal exercise in Indonesian martial-arts mayhem - featuring the charismatic Iko Uwais ("The Raid" franchise), a living, breathing action figure - is definitely not for the squeamish nor anyone who has just eaten lunch.
Despite Headshot's flaws, it does have a mesmerizing quality in its illustration of humanity's dark side, social and spiritual. It's a film that coaxes into its world rather than drags.
Audience Reviews for Headshot
Unfortunately every film Iko Uwais is and will be compared to The Raid films which is a shame because this film is great but all the bad reviews mention The Raid films in their reviews, The film itself is very good with some great bloody action, Maybe the story is a little over done and it has a few plot holes but it's mostly about the action scenes and if you just watch it for them you will enjoy it just as much as The Raid.
