Sean's Review of Headhunters

4 years ago via Flixster


Starts out a bit slow, formulaic, and self-serious, but soon embraces pure, ridiculous insanity in all the best ways. Reminds me quite a bit of the superior Korean film "I Saw the Devil". Bill Goodykoontz of the Arizona Republic describes this movie as "an absurd amount of grisly fun" and I find that apt, as well as the conclusion that if you scrutinize the plot and its overly convenient twists and turns too much, it sort of crumbles a bit. Thank God the cast and crew seemed to decide 30 minutes into the movie, "F*** it, let's just have fun with it."
