If you are an action junkie and are looking for more hard hitting classic style knuckle dragging beat downs in the vein of Van Damme’s career from the 90’s, well Headshot is for you! XYZ Films and Vertical Entertainment just dropped the trailer for the martial arts centric film which stars The Raid actor Iko Uwais as a man with amnesia who is tracking down his former associates to rescue his special lady.
The story is simple and basic, but that’s not why you’re paying money to see this movie. Uwais is an incredible martial artist and deserves to get some recognition in the form of bigger roles in more mainstream roles.
Check out the trailer here!
The trailer is exactly what you would expect. Heavy action, light story and no plot giveaways that aren’t already in the synopsis. If they can recreate any of the magic from The Raid, then consider this a success. The only problem is expectations are high because of those films and so Headshot has big shoes to fill
The film opens March 3rd and also stars Julie Estelle and Chelsea Islan. Here is the official synopsis:
HEADSHOT centers on a mysterious young man, who, after months in a coma from a gunshot wound to the head is nursed back to health by a young student-doctor, Ailin. Realizing that the man has lost his memory and identity, the two quickly grow closer; not realizing that behind their momentary peace lays danger. Soon their lives collide with a gang of dangerous criminals led by an enigmatic crime lord – and with every violent confrontation, his memory brings him closer to a dark truth as the lethal personality awakening within him starts to reveal who he really is.
