Indonesian based Mo Brothers (actual names Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto) make yet another turn in their career. From low budget slasher “Macabre” to internationally backed thriller”Killers,” and now to a genuine action film, with “Headshot.”
In a sort of Indonesian edition of Jason Bourne, the film features Iko Uwais as Ismail, an amnesiac who washes ashore with a serious head injury. A woman doctor (Chelsea Islan) nurses him back to health as he falls in love with her. Eventually though, he discovers that he is a trained killing machine, as his past returns to haunt him.
Julie Estelle, Very Tri Yulisman and Sunny Pang also star in the film.
“Headshot” is much reminiscent of “The Raid:Redemption”, with impressive and quite violent action.
The film will premiere at Toronto International Film Festival.
