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.

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.

Headshot stops somewhere short of mind-blowing, especially if you've seen Uwais in action before, but it's another thoroughly satisfying showcase for his talents.

Headshot is rarely as good as Uwais, but he makes the bloody beat-em-up worth a look.

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.

Although narratively flawed, the brutality factor is through the roof and there are still plenty of thrills to keep true action giddy with joy.

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.

Dennis Harvey

Fans of extreme Asian genre action won't care that things eventually grow somewhat predictable and repetitive: In terms of sheer, punchy physical vigor, "Headshot" is a knockout.

It might not be in the same league as The Raid or John Wick, but it makes a decent fist of it.

Unfortunately every film Iko Uwais is in will be compared to The Raid films which is a shame because this film is great but all the bad reviews mention The Raid… More
