Customer Review

on 17 October 2013
As a huge fan of The Warriors and The Driver I had big hopes for Walter Hill's return to movie making.
However, Bullet To The HEad is strictly 3 star stuff, whiles a way a night but doesnt leave much of an impression.
The story is amazingly lacking in originality, Hill was always the master of simplicity but this isnt the bare bones of a story, its the rotting carcass of a story.
The cast is pretty low rent - Sung Kang's sidekick has all the charisma of a lettuce sandwhich. Chrsitan Slater hams it up as usual though, in fact, more would of his character would have been nice as he is certainly entertaining.
Sarah Shahi is also shockingly unerused and a waste of a great actress. It would have been more interesting to see Stallone and Shahi as a father / daughter team of hit men as opposed to the ancient plot device of a kidnapped daughter.
On the positive side Jason Mamoa is a suprisingly memorable villain.
The action scenes are OK but nothing spectacular.
The main thing that left me dissapointed though is that one of my favourite directors teaming up with Sly Stallone could and should have been an old school blast of action, what we get is however a movie that is made and packaged that makes it indistinguishable from the production rank of action movies starring at Best Jason Statham and at worse WWE wrestlers, even down to the opening titles and the CSI style photography. Instead of trying to follow trends it would have been better if Walter Hill had used the tricks of the trade he knows best and showed why he was a pivotal film maker.
