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.

It's a cliché to call these fights balletic or the camerawork athletic. But the combination of these movements -- of bodies and frames, in harmony and in evocative tension -- is mesmerizing.

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.

Definitely worth the time of any martial arts fan eager to see Uwais in action while they await the inevitable third entry in The Raid series.

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.

Genre aficionados might enjoy the ultraviolent intensity, even if the result feels repetitive.

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
