James Bonomo (Sylvester Stallone) is a hitman. Due to a number of circumstances he teams up with Taylor Kwan, an honest cop (Sung Kang) who wants to take people in, while Bonomo wants to take them out.

The screenplay for this film is based on a novel which means the writing is a step above the hack made-for-film scripts we've been subjected to by the other heavy weight action film stars...especially the guy with the pony tail. The title "Bullet to the Head" has a duo meaning as Stallone enjoys Bullet bourbon. In the beginning Stallone swerves to miss a cat. This is an omen to the next scene where he spares a woman with a panther tattoo on her back. These subtleties (pay attention writer/actor/cop Steve) along with Louisiana harmonica blues grindhouse music and a superior script overcomes bad acting, including Christian Slater.

The film is filled with action and bullets to the head. It was just enough drama filler to make a story so we don't get bored when we see people get shot. Worth a view for those who like action films just a cut above the grindhouse style.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. Nudity (Weronika Rosati, Sarah Shahi-briefly, plus extras.) No sex.

Stallone doing a good job in a pretty basic 80s style violent thriller. The action is visceral and brutal.
The film builds to a conclusion but never really establishes the 'Bad Guy' other than Jason Momoa doing a good turn as the bad mercenary.

The climax of the film is a it of a confused mess. It doesn't really make a lot of sense. Rather than bringing the threads together the director and writer seem to have given up, thrown their pens in the air and screamed "Gunfight!".

But it's still worth a watch if you do like a bit of retro action.

Format: DVD
Set in New Orleans, Sylvester Stallone stars as hitman & ex-demolitions expert James Bonomo, who, on his latest job of taking out a dirty cop, is double crossed by his employers & his 6 year partner in crime Louis (Seda) dead. Forging an unlikely & uneasy alliance with nuisance Washington D.C detective Taylor Kwon (Kang) who is there to investigate, they head out for revenge & to bring down the bad guys.

Overall, it's obvious that this is a flashback to no nonsense 80's & 90's buddy cop action movies which Stallone himself is no stranger too. With a distinct noir theme, coupled with the gloomy backdrop of New Orleans & Stallone's narration through the progression of the story, Bullet To The Head certainly has it's own unique flavor. At heart the story is simple yet good enough to follow, but it's all about the action, which it certainly delivers in staggered, well paced style with bloody shootout's, hand to hand combat, explosions, knife & axe fights. It zips through it's 1 hour 30 minute run time.

The chemistry between Sly & Sun Kang (Ninja Assassin) was pretty spot on, they gave each other as good as they got, while the contrasting styles worked well together. Kang a somewhat nieve young detective using his police connections to get information & trying to save lives, while Sly tries to keep them both alive using his street smarts & taking lives. The stand out of the co-stars was a great action performance by Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian) who plays the opposing henchman who likes his job a little too much.

After his partner is killed, 'Jimmy Bobo' reluctantly teams up with
'cop' 'Taylor Kwon' realizing that both have probably been targeted by
the same source.
They set out for revenge tracking down the 'bad apples' trouble is the
harder they shake the tree the higher up the ladder they have to climb.
the stakes are raised when 'Jimmy's' daughter is snatched as a bargaining
tool.
'Taylor' wants to follow the letter of the law whilst 'Jimmy' has no such
subtleties, he solves issues with bullets.
this is an action packed 'romp' ( typical 'Sly' style ) which is well worth
a spin.
** I kinda wonder how long the likes of 'Sly' 'Arnie' and 'Bruce' will
continue to play these 'action-hero' roles ( surely they don't need the
cash these days )
Don't get me wrong,I love their kind of on screen action, just watched
this one, watched 'Arnie's' 'The last stand' a week or so back and
Hope to have 'Bruce's' 'A good day to die hard' through the post next
Monday.
I'm sure i'll enjoy the latter as much as I have the other two......

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.
