A young man is washed ashore and appears to have lost his memory. His doctor calls him Ishmael. At the same time, dangerous crime boss Lee escapes from jail. When Lee hears about Ishmael’s appearance, he goes on the hunt for him. But Ishmael’s memory is slowly starting to come back to him. Brutal gangster film with many familiar faces from The Raid 2.
With Gareth Evans’ The Raid 3 on hold for a while, it’s up to the Mo Brothers to uphold the honour of the Indonesian action film. And the makers of Killers (Imagine 2014) do so with a vengeance. For Headshot they drew extensively from the cast of The Raid 2. Action hero and stuntman Iko Uwais is the mysterious Ishmael, who slowly discovers what happened to him earlier in his life. With Sunny Pang as the thoroughly evil crime boss Lee, Headshot also has a first-class villain. There is romance as well, but above all this is explosive action of the highest calibre.
