Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Fans of extreme Asian genre action won't care that things eventually grow somewhat predictable and repetitive: In terms of sheer, punchy physical vigor, "Headshot" is a knockout.
Rotten: the story can't sustain the bloated running time and the ongoing, gratuitous violence. It's not the best showcase for Uwais' skills when he's bringing his fists to a gunfight.
Fresh: Despite Headshot's flaws, it does have a mesmerizing quality in its illustration of humanity's dark side, social and spiritual. It's a film that coaxes into its world rather than drags.
Fresh: Headshot is rarely as good as Uwais, but he makes the bloody beat-em-up worth a look.
Hit and hit again until its finished
An awesome movie with tremendous fight sequences and simple story. This movie is really violent so don't bother watching or giving bad reviews because you didn't know. Somethings look real and the director and camera work was great. Think of a better version of bourne identity .
Lots of action and kung-fu like fighting. Well made.
Headshot Hits the Mark
The martial arts fighting scenes are dynamically mind blowing. Best I've seen in a while. The storyline is easy to follow and the ending is fitting. I'd watch it again and I will.
