‘The Raid: Redemption’ and ‘Mile 22’ star Iko Uwais is a knockout in 2016’s ‘Headshot’!
by Nile Fortner
Star of the action-packed Indonesian flick The Raid: Redemption and The Raid 2, Iko Uwais now stars in the new Mark Walberg and John Malkovich film, Mile 22. The new action thriller directed by Peter Berg (Lone Survivor) once again brings Uwais to the hard-hitting action cinema that has made him a well-known worldwide action-star. While Mile 22 is expected to be a hit at the box-office due to the leading performances, I have decided to go back and think of Uwais as a leading man. Uwais is known for one of the best action films in years, The Raid: Redemption and the sequel The Raid 2, is without a doubt a great leading man in action movies. On the other hand, one film that seems to not have gotten as much praise as ‘The Raid’ films is the 2016 Indonesian film, Headshot.
