Walter Hill stands as one of the premier architects of the modern American action movie, with titles like The Warriors, Southern Comfort, and 48 Hrs. all demonstrating clean plotting, characters that define themselves through deeds, and a firm grasp of cinematic geography. (Even in his less resonant efforts, such as the gloriously loco Sam Peckinpah tribute Extreme Prejudice, you can always track exactly who is shooting at whom, and from where.) Bullet to the Head, Hill's first theatrical release since 2002's Undisputed, finds the director's talent for setups largely undimmed, depicting the escalating action sequences with a wit and economy of movement that makes the running time zip by. That said, those looking for some sort of narrative arc may be left wishing for a little more flesh on these minimalist bones. Based on a graphic novel by Alexis Nolent, the plot follows a weary New Orleans hit man (Sylvester Stallone) on the run after an assignment goes bad. Bent on evening the score, he teams up with a fish-out-of-water cop (Sung Kang) and proceeds to lay waste to the city. Hill has always had a knack for hissable bad guys, and he's assembled a beauty of a rogues' gallery here, with enjoyable villain turns from Christian Slater, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and especially Conan's Jason Momoa, who displays a ridiculous amount of charisma as the hulking final boss. As for Stallone (who now resembles a slightly melted Ray Harryhausen sculpture), he brings his usual oddly endearing intensity to the role, breaking up the heavy lifting and emoting with some agreeably corny wisecracks. The problems arise, unfortunately, when it comes to Sly's interactions with Kang, an actor who, despite all of the charm he's displayed in the Fast and Furious series, makes for an unusually passive partner. This chemistry imbalance may keep Hill's comeback from reaching the level that his fans had hoped, but his old-school stylings still come as a relief in this era of blurry editing and after-the-fact CGI assists. When he films an axe fight, you can be ensured that that newfangled digital blood isn't allowed anywhere near the set. --Andrew Wright

Product Description

After almost a decade away from the big screen, veteran film director Walter Hill (The Warriors, 48Hrs) is back at the helm with the action thriller, Bullet to the Head. Legendary movie star Sylvester Stallone plays Jimmy Bobo, a jaded hit man who reluctantly forms an alliance with a cop in order to exact revenge on the mercenary who murdered their respective partners. Full of non-stop explosive action, thrilling fight scenes and classic one-liners, Bullet to the Head is based on Alexis Nolent's graphic novel of the same name. The action packed cast includes Jason Momoa (Conan The Barbarian, Game of Thrones), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (The Bourne Identity), Sung Kang (Fast & Furious 5) and Christian Slater (True Romance).

Delayed, rescheduled and eventually thrown away by Warner Bros. in the States after they ended their long running partnership with producer Joel Silver amid much acrimony and faring no better in the rest of the world, Bullet to the Head isn’t going to take its place alongside Walter Hill’s best work but it’s far from his worst. The kind of efficient action thriller that was the industry’s meat and drink in the 70s and 80s but which few bother to see on the big screen these days, it sees him returning to the New Orleans setting of his directorial debut The Streetfighter/Hard Times and the later Johnny Handsome in a modern-day tale of a cop (Sung Kang) whose corrupt ex-partner was murdered teaming up with the hitman (Sylvester Stallone) who did it and whose own partner was murdered by his unknown employers to find out who’s behind it all. We find out long before them thanks to an astonishingly clumsy bit of exposition when Christian Slater’s underworld lawyer is suddenly introduced twenty minutes into the picture to explain the plot to Jason Momoa’s hired muscle in almost kindergarten terms that just screams last-minute-reshoot-after-audiences-got-confused-in-the-previews, but then this isn’t a whodunit: it’s a mismatched cop’n’crook buddy movie with plenty of old school action that’s probably not spectacular or absurd enough for the Michael Bay crowd but offers plenty of enjoyment for those nostalgic for the kind of films they used to have to lie about their age to get in to see when they were growing up.

2.0 out of 5 stars Here's forty bucks, i've got my own bottle... 17 Jan 2014
A cop and an assassin team up together after there partners are killed. Conan killed one of them, Christian Slater looks relieved to be on the big screen again, and Stallone takes his shirt off at least once.

The plot has something to do with a flash drive, and in the mix, Conan kidnaps Stallones daughter, and the two leads have a bit of banter, all the while advertising Bulleit Bourbon, and Blackberry phones, they are a weapon after all.

Out of all the eighties throwback movies released this side of the year (Die Hard V, The Last Stand), this was the one I was least eager to see. The trailer was horrid, and the one sheet is hilarious (Just look at Shahis airbrushed head).

Stallone hasn't really sold a film on his name alone and had success since probably The Specialist back in 1994, and it's a real shame, because even his worst films are worth watching because of him.

And this is no different, yet, it's nothing really special. It's a throwback to his post Rocky IV days, and the film delivers on the action scale in huge droves and doesn't fail to entertain, but narrative, story, and character building are virtually non-existent.

The chemistry between the two leads is nil, and this is where the film fails the most, that is the fundamental part of the film, and it resorts to them bickering, and Stallone giving an off the cuff remark.

And then the film does that stupid thing with an object, which you know will be used in the finale, the knife may as well have said 'I'm gonna stab Momoa with this' on it.

It entertained as it should, but I soon forgot it, and wouldn't be upset if I never saw it again.

Not as bad as Driven, Avenging Angelo, or Oscar, but it's not as fun as Tango and Cash, or Demolition Man, what it should be.

By Maciej TOP 500 REVIEWER
That is the only possible explanation for the failure of this film, which on the surface of things seemed quite promising, but quickly crashed and therefore mostly failed to deliver.

When I saw that Stallone was teaming up with Christian Slater and Jason Momoa to play in a film directed by Walter Hill, a legendary veteran of action cinema, I was really thrilled. The first 10 minutes of the film were actually pretty good - but then, things went south, past Louisiana and even the American continent, straight towards the Pole.

The main culprit here is of course the scenario - or rather the lack of it (understandable - it was eaten). Everything in this film can be anticipated, there is a complete lack of originality, dialogs are VERY lame, there is very little humour and let's not even talk about action scenes! In good action scenes the vilains (or the disposable sidekicks) make at least an effort and if possible put up a fight, offer a challenge, at least I don't know, show that they care a little about NOT dying - here, with just one exception, everybody dies immediately, the moment Stallone or Jason Momoa enter the room. That is not action, it is just boring slaughter.

The idea of pairing up a hit man and a cop on a mission of revenge was very promising, but it was comprehensively FUBAR-ed. Part of responsability lays here with Sung Kang, the guy who plays the cop. This guy CAN'T act at all and his character is a laughable obscene abomination - I can't imagine how Walter Hill could accept such a lamo p-u-s-s-y as one of the two heroes of an action film. Honestly, if you want to see a film in which a hit man and a (former) cop team up in an uneasy alliance, see "Best seller", a 1987 movie with James Woods and Brian Dennehy - that is one bad@ss crime/action film!

Loved the style. It reminded me a bit of Streets of Fire actually, the slightly cartoonish characters and also the way the shots panned out. Pure art again.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you can't find anything else worth a look
Action film it is. However Stalone's partners acting is not a scratch on Stalones and the plot is pretty cliché so I won't be watching it a second time.
