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 ›

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......

Stallone is sleepwalking through this film, and the movie doesn't really have any standout moments. For example there's no big budget action scene at all; its all just small fights and shootouts, which makes you wonder how this was released in the cinema as it looks and feels like a straight to DVD Steven Seagal movie. Having said that; it’s directed by Walter Hill and his hard gritty style is definitely present and noticeable, so if you enjoyed movies like Red Heat and 48 hours this will appeal to you more. Also the surprisingly muddled plot is kind of bulldozed through, as if the filmmakers wanted to give you a more complicated deeper experience but realized that this is the wrong movie for that and so just rushed it. SO you end up with a movie that feels light and breezy despite its heavy handed yet disappointingly small action scenes. Overall it's not without its charms and fans of Walter Hill will want to see it. In the Making-off extra features, Walter hill says he makes the "anti-buddy-movie" and this film absolute adheres to that which is what makes it entertaining - the two protagonists do not get along, even in the end, which is refreshingly bitter. And there's some funny moments throughout the film with Stallone's forced improvised dialogue somehow making his one-liners even funnier.

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.

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.
