Indonesian Movie Headshot Review: Iko Uwais Surprises with a Unique Fighting Style and Acting

Iko Uwais’ rise to Hollywood is as organic as organic can get. He didn’t bombard social media with his selfies. He was literally discovered because of his martial arts mastery and he deserves every bit of success. That’s why people are even more critical with every movie he makes. The Raid introduced as new fighting style and a new way to look at action films.
Headshot is a fitting follow up. Iko plays Abdi or Ishmael, an assassin who is suffering from amnesia and is forced to confront his past in order to save his present.
The question is whether or not Iko topped The Raid or is this one of those movies that is just hanging on the tail of The Raid’s greatness. Is Headshot worth watching?
