I went to the HIFF (Hawaii International Film Festival), to watch Indonesian movie, called Headshot. This film is an action film that I was not imagine, but after watched this film I feel so proud of Indonesia.
This movie is about a man named Abdi (Iko Uwais) who loses his memory because of some tragedy that he been through before an old man found and safe his life and bring him to the Hospital. He is being handle by a new young nurse from Jakarta, named Ailin (Chelsea Islan). She called Abdi, Ishmael, because she does not know his name and when he is wake up, his so called cousin/assassin searching for him, turns out Abdi is not dead yet. They are taking Ailin to make Abdi mad and come to their place in the middle of the forrest. Abdi killed all the assassin and go to their place, but he is still got one person left to fight and he is the Father of Hell named Lee, (Sunny Pang). They are fighting for a long time and Abdi/Ishmael won the fight and went to the Hospital in Jakarta with Ailin.
Headshot is one of the coolest Indonesian film that I have ever watched, the fighting looks legit with the sound effects. Motion/Visual graphic is the amazing thing and mind blowing that this film has. The storyline in unpredictable unlike other Indonesian film. This is something fresh that could make Indonesia proud.
“Scenes of Headshot”
A lot of fighting scene and blood makes it instance to watch (in the good way). The location of the film is very beautiful. I like the scene where Abdi is fighting with Rika (Jullie Estelle) at the beach, because it is nothing like the other fighting scene. Iko Uwais who choreographs the fighting scene and a very good actor too.
I recommend this film, if you like action/thrillers film, so many cool stuff in this film. I hope Indonesia will make more film like this, with quality like this.
