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.

Positive.
The opening which sets up what looks a taunt thriller.
Jason Momoa has charisma playing a rival hitman.

Negative.
Sylvester Stallone & this hurts to say but doesn't quite deliver his usual action classic here unlike his recent enjoyable Escape Plan & the exellent The Expendables.
The Ending is very poor & loses the chance at upping the ante in the action department.

Dvd.
Running Time 92 minutes, Director Walter Hill.

Review.
This movie's based on the graphic novel by Alexis Nolent of the same name but doesn't quite deliver as it should do.
Sly plays hitman Jimmy Bobo who's partner is killed by another hitman.

Bobo teams up with honest detective Taylor Kwan who's partner has also been murdered to find the mercenary responsible.

What follows are gunfights, Fistfights, The usual one liners you typical 80's action type film.

But unlike Slys recent efforts the excellent Escape Plan & superb Expendables this doesn't quite hit those mark's.

Sly had no script involvement in this film & it shows the humour seems flat lacking the usual punchy quip.

Sly kicks ass & doesn't go down the 12a action movie routes keeping it hardcore & that at least I commend him on doing.

Sung Kang lacks charisma as Taylor Kwan & the partnership with Boboo doesn't quite Gel.

There's no real standout action scenes either & the pace seems uneven in places.

Christian Slaters small role is annoying & the best kill by Bobo in the movie.

The standout star in this film for me is Jason Momna whom has screen presence & charisma whom can certainly handle the action scenes.

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.Read more ›
