Melbourne martial arts film fans take note: distributor Vendetta Films have announced that they are running a one-off screening of brand-new Indonesian film Headshot, starring Iko Uwais (of The Raid, The Raid 2, and later SPL II). It’s on this Friday March 3 at Cinema Nova in Carlton as a once-off.
Not to be confused with the Thai film of the same name from 2012, this film stars Uwais as a seriously injured amnesiac nursed back to health by a doctor (Chelsea Islan), only to find the violence of his past return to haunt him. The film is the first action film for writer-director pair Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel, known as the Mo Brothers — we’ve previously looked at their horror flick Killers, which screened at SFF 2014.
Here’s a trailer:
