WATCH: Headshot starring The Raid action hero Iko Uwais

September 8th, 2016 by Marc Comments


If, like me, you love The Raid films starring Iko Uwais (he was briefly in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as Razoo Quin-Fee and can be seen below right from The Raid 2) then hold on to your hats because the trailer for his latest film is now online… and it looks as violent as we’d come to expect from the action star.

In Headshot, we see Uwais’s character Ismail wakes up from an injury having lost his memory, but slowly comes to realise that he is a trained killing machine. He’s nursed back to health by a woman he falls in love with, which becomes complicated once he starts having to battle a henchman with ties to a powerful drug lord.

The Indonesian film also stars Chelsea Islan, Julie Estelle, Zack Lee, Sunny Pang, Epy Kusnandar, David Lawrence and Very Tri Yulisman. No word on a release date yet but we’ll keep you posted.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
