[Review by cornholio.]
A young man (Iko Uwais) is washed ashore unconscious. When he wakes up after two months, he can’t remember a thing. He’s slowly nursed back to health by a doctor, Ailin (Chelsea Islan), who calls him Ishmael. But as he grows stronger and more active, his past comes back to haunt him. And his past is a bloody, violent place.
Headshot doesn’t have the best story, but it does have great action. Unfortunately the film stands in its own way sometimes, so it never really takes off.
