When I first saw The Raid, I could only describe it as a martial arts flick crossed with a horror film. The action was borderline torture porn (in the best way possible) and the suspense was top-notch. The action was amped up in the second Raid film but it didn’t capture the same tone of suspense as the first film. Either way, the stars of the films have earned a bloody spot in my heart (even their appearance in Force Awakens).
News of a new movie from actor Iko Uwais is very exciting and after watching this trailer for Headshot I think we are gonna be served the same mayhem and ass kicking as we were treated too in the Raid films.
Take a look for yourself.
Here’s the synopsis from IMDB
Uwais plays a young man who washes ashore, an amnesiac with a serious head injury whose past comes back to haunt him shortly after being nursed back to health by a young doctor. Violence ensues. Sweet, sweet violence.
Either that was written by a fan or a marketing department who knows their target audience.
Directed by the Mo Brothers, Headshot reteams Uwais with his Raid 2 costar Julie Estelle.Headshot landed in theaters on July 4, 2016 in its native Indonesia. It is slated to have a limited run here in the states but hit home video and VOD at the same time.
