Plot: After watching their respective partners die, a New Orleans hitman and a Washington D.C. detective form an alliance in order to bring down their common enemy. Runtime: 92 mins Release Date: 31 Jan 2012
Watching the Sylvester Stallone shoot'em up "Bullet to the Head" felt like a blast from the past. This polished but predictable anthology of action movie clichés contains several R-rated, close-quarters, combat scenes with sufficient amounts of blood splatter and gore; some high-octane, fireball explosions; lots of snappy tough guy banter; and surprising displays of frontal female nudity. Half the scenes reminded me of producer Joel Silver's explosive, slam-bang, white-knuckled, testosterone-laden tales, such as "Conspiracy Theory," "Exit Wounds, <more>
"Swordfish," and his "Lethal Weapon" franchise. Indeed, Silver serves as one of the producers, and "Bullet to the Head" adheres to his formula. Meanwhile, action auteur Walter Hill drew the other half from his hardboiled melodramas. For the record, Hill helmed the two "48 Hrs" flicks with Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy, "Extreme Prejudice" with Nick Nolte, "Last Man Standing" with Bruce Willis, and "Red Heat" co-starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Belushi. Although "The Messenger" scenarist Alessandro Camon adapted the Alexis Nolent graphic novel "Du plomb dans la tête," "Bullet to the Head" looks like "48 Hrs" and/or "Red Heat" clone. Mind you, "Bullet to the Head" is Hill's first theatrical release since his gritty 2002 prison melodrama "Undisputed" with Ving Rhames and Wesley Snipes. During his absence from the big screen, Hill helmed the premiere episode of HBO's "Deadwood," and then the television mini-series western "Broken Trail" 2006 costarring Robert Duvall and Thomas Haden Church." In many respects, this action-packed, largely straightforward, odd couple buddy picture compares favorably with earlier, exceptional Stallone sagas like "Assassins," "The Specialist," and "Demolition Man." Most definitely, it surpasses "Tango and Cash" and "Stop, Or My Mom Will Shoot." Cast as a seasoned hit-man in the Crescent City, Sylvester Stallone tangles with a mysterious cabal of Big Easy investors who have the New Orleans Police Department on their payroll. Director Walter Hill has juggled the occupations of the protagonists from his earlier buddy picture epics. The cop was always the lead in the combo in the "48 Hrs" movies and "Red Heat." This time around, world-weary, career criminal James "Bobo" Bonomo Sylvester Stallone of "Rocky" is the lead, while saintly, Washington, D.C. Detective Taylor Kwon Sung Kang of "Fast & Furious" behaves rather naively and relies too much on his cell phone. Ironically, the two men want to exact vengeance for the deaths of their former partners. They agree to form an uneasy alliance, but Kwon's conscience prompts him to constrain Bonomo. These two don't immediately run into each other. When the plot unfolds, Bonomo and his partner Louis Blanchard Jon Seda of "Bad Boys 2" masquerade as cops to snuff a cocaine-snorting thug, Hank Greely Holt McCallany of "Fight Club" , in a motel room. Bonomo spots a tattooed prostitute cowering in the shower, but he lets her live. This amoral murderer draws the line at shooting women. When he is behind the wheel on the road, he swerves to avoid stray cats in front of him. "It's bad luck," he assures Louis. These two show up at a crowded bar where they are supposed to pick up the balance of their loot for the shooting. Before either realizes they have been double-crossed, another assassin, Keegan Jason Momoa of "Conan" , stabs poor Louis repeatedly to death in front of everybody. He wields a small blade to hack both of Louis' lungs so nobody in the noisy bar knows a murder has occurred. Keegan isn't quite as lucky with Bonomo. Now, Bonomo wants payback. Our hero crosses paths with a hard-nosed, Washington, D.C. police detective who is visiting New Orleans. As it turns out, Hank Greely was his former partner in Washington. Kwon wants the people who ordered Hank's demise. Sure, neither Bonomo nor Kwon have much use for each other initially, but they kind of grow on one other as they survive back-to-back fracases.Hill stages some gripping shoot-out scenes that genre fans will savor, and you get to see Silver's trademark Ka-Boom explosions! Hill never lets the narrative bog down in aimless chatter or an over elaborate plot. Stallone's character provides deadpan narration throughout the pyrotechnics so you never take anything seriously in "Bullet to the Head." "Bullet to the Head" is not unlike a Tarantino thriller. Camon and Hill wrap up everything, but leave room for a sequel since the hero's daughter and the D.C. cop are dating. At 66 years of age, Sylvester Stallone appears as fit as a fiddle. This is the kind of movie where guys shed shirts and clash muscles. He channels a little bit of "Rocky" in his tongue-in-cheek performance. The ax fight between beefy, muscle-bound Jason Momoa and Stallone has been carefully edited to present both to maximum advantage. You know Stallone is going to triumph, but Momoa doesn't make it look easy. Momoa makes a lusty villain. No less villainous is Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as a crippled, African investor has no qualms about murder. Christian Slater appears briefly as a smarmy swindler with a flash drive around his neck that boasts the goods of everybody. The interrogation scene is pretty amusing. Clocking in at a lean, mean, 97 minutes, "Bullet to the Head" doesn't wear out its welcome. You don't even have to wait around to see what's after the end credits so you can clear out early. Were it not for the pedigree talent involved, "Bullet to the Head" would qualify at best as a seven-star rather than a ten-star movie. If you still like Stallone, you'll love "Bullet to the Head" because it is worth shelling out the bucks to watch this Spartan saga.
A Surprisingly Incredibly Funny Movie (by maeve-tee)
I'm female but I do love action flicks and I know what to expect when I go watch a Stallone movie. I just like seeing kick-a$$ scenes and good guys winning over the bad guys, but this was way better than I expected!Sly had the funniest lines. Like when the new Conan - I mean the villain - wanted them to fight to the death with axes, Sly said: What are we, Vikings? Oh and BTW this last fight scene rocked!The exchanges between Fast and the Furious' Han and Sly are hilarious. sly: let's take him out Han: take him in sly: take him in, take him out, whatever you want to call itThe <more>
thing is, I know we all know we won't get a really complex storyline from this film. And that's cool, since this movie wasn't made to be thought-provoking in the first place. What Sly aimed with this one was to entertain and he and his brilliant cast did it perfectly! Christian Slater, with the regretfully few minutes he got, stole the show with his convincingly sleazy ways. I can go on and on but bottom line, you need to watch this movie if you want a great action film with lots of LOL moments.
WOW what can I say, just simple plain clear wow bravo SLY man you did it one more time. My goodness Stallone as he gets older as much as he gets better. Rocky Balboa , Rambo, Expendables 1&2, and now Bullet to the Head. Action fans all over the world have the full package in this movie, everything what a hardcore action fan could ask for is there. Bullets...Done Action...Done Fighting...Done Killing...Done Humor...Done Story is short and simple not complicated at all, well directed by Walter Hill as usually, Cool soundtrack, well edited, good supporting cast Jason Mamoa, Sarah Shahi and <more>
come back kid Christian slater. Bullet to the Head is dedicated to pure man vs man old school action fans worldwide. Sylvester Stallone God Bless you man and keep kicking ass.
Sly is part of a hit-man team. Their latest job is to kill some guy who's at a hotel with a prostitute. They kill the guy and uncharacteristically let the girl live. Later at a bar his partner is killed and Sly barely survives.An Asian detective, Kwon, is investigating the dead guy and travels to New Orleans. Magically Kwon, upon seeing the corpse of Sly's partner in the morgue next to the other guy's corpse has an inkling the two deaths are related. He connects the dots and meets Sly. When Sly saves his life they reluctantly partner up. Kwon likes doing things by the book. Sly <more>
being the seasoned criminal does things differently, that is, brutally but effectively.They slowly start following the trail of one bad guy after another. There's the guy who hired Sly's team. The guy behind him, some big shot who organizes an extravagant party and is kidnapped by Sly and Kwon. Then there's the big bad businessman who has real estate plans for New Orleans and has politicians and cops on his payroll. He also has special ops guys as his security staff. One of them is Momoa the only actor with weirder eyebrows than Sly , who killed Sly's partner and now has kidnapped Sly's daughter, played by the lovely Sarah Shahi.Bullet to the head is an exhilarating old-fashioned action movie. It has a great setting- New Orleans, great music, a good story and an outstanding cast. It wonderfully violent with plenty of bullets to the head, fist fights, explosions, has some nudity and characters to care about. This is the kind of movie The Expendables should be. They need to hire Walter Hill to direct Expendables 3. This guy knows how to direct an action movie. Bullet to the Head is a fun and intense action movie the likes we haven't seen in a while.
Exactly what you are looking for in this kind of film... Blu-ray: Excellent A:10 V:10 (by lathe-of-heaven)
Yep, I gave this baby a '9' Why...? I mean is it another 'CITIZEN KANE'? Or another 'BLADE RUNNER'? Uh, no... The reason why, and this I feel is the way movies should be reviewed and rated, is that the bloody film does PRECISELY what you want it to for a fun, exciting, and frigg'n entertaining Action film.I admit that I was surprised that it was this good because I really didn't care for 'THE EXPENDABLES' that much, but ol' Walter Hill is right at the TOP of his ability, let me tell you! Beautifully directed, great fun script a tad weak between the <more>
two leads, but not bad excellent action, pacing, and a FANTASTIC soundtrack! Like I alluded to, the interaction between the two leads was a little hokey at times, but I think Sly carried it well. The very end was a little goofy too, but it didn't detract from the film as a whole.So, if what you are looking for is a very well directed Action film with nice touches or irony and with a couple of your favourite stars, then you will totally enjoy this movie!
Bullet to the Head is about as 80's as you're going to get, but personally I think that is a good thing especially with today in cinema. These kind of films hold a special place in my heart, so naturally I would be sold on this film. Despite all the action clichés, there is no resisting the hardcore action, the explosions, and all the guys getting beat up.This film, which of course has to be directed by Walter Hill, is about an aging hit-man named Jimmy Bobo who was betrayed after he performed a job and his partner was killed. Seeking revenge, he teams up with a cop named Taylor Kwon <more>
as they both seek out justice. But these two have a different way of serving justice.If you're expecting Oscar-caliber acting, then don't watch this film. You don't need that kind of acting in a film like this. Sylvester Stallone is nearing 70 and it's neat to see him efficiently take down people more than half his age. Sung Kang, known for his role in Fast and the Furious films, was decent. Jason Momoa is an effective badass as Keegan, the guy hunting down Bobo. There is also a welcome return to the big screen by Christian Slater who was drunkingly funny.Overall, there is nothing new with Bullet to the Head. But I can promise a fun ride and Sly kicking butt. This is definitely an adrenaline rush and action junkies will be sure to enjoy this. It's a shame people don't watch these kind of films anymore because they are good. I rate this film 9/10.
It almost feels like you've been thrown back in time to the 80s or early 90s! (by Hellmant)
'BULLET TO THE HEAD': Four Stars Out of Five Sylvester Stallone in a classic 80s style revenge action film directed by none other than Walter Hill who helmed such popular 70s through 90s action flicks as 'THE WARRIORS', 'THE LONG RIDERS', '48 HOURS', 'RED HEAT', 'EXTREME PREJUDICE', 'TRESSPASS' and 'LAST MAN STANDING' . The film is based on a graphic novel of the same name, when translated to English by Alexis Nolent and illustrated by Colin Wilson. It was scripted by Alessandro Camon and puts Stallone in a buddy tale as a <more>
hit-man teamed with a cop out to revenge the killing of his partner. It also pits Stallone in a classic axe fight with Jason Momoa of 'STARGATE: ATLANTIS', 'BAYWATCH' and 'GAME OF THRONES' fame. He also played Conan in the recent 'CONAN THE BARBARIAN' reboot . The film also co-stars Sung Kang most well known from 'THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS' franchise , Christian Slater and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. It's a great throwback to 80s action flicks and Stallone and Hill fans should be thrilled with it.Stallone plays James Bonomo, a hit-man in New Orleans who takes an assignment to kill a dirty cop, named Hank Greely Holt McCallany , with his partner, Louis Blanchard Jon Seda , but leaves a witness alive, a prostitute the cop was sleeping with named Lola Weronika Rosati . Bonomo and Blanchard are later attacked at a bar by another hired killer named Keegan Momoa . Keegan kills Blanchard but fails to defeat Bonomo in a bathroom brawl. Bonomo later learns that Keegan is working for a man named Robert Morel Akinnuoye-Agbaje who wants a file Greely had. Bonomo of course wants revenge for the death of his partner. A cop named Taylor Kwan Kang comes to town to investigate the death of his ex-partner, Greely, and pieces it together that Bonomo was involved. The two reluctantly team up to stop Morel and Keegan. The beautiful Sarah Shahi also co-stars as Bonomo's daughter, who helps him out when Kwan is in need of medical attention because she's a tattoo artist .The film, for me, had exactly the same feel as the old neo-noir revenge flicks from two to four decades ago the same ones that Stallone used to star in or Hill used to direct . While watching it it almost feels like you've been thrown back in time to the 80s or early 90s! It's just great nostalgic fun and Stallone is perfect in it. Kang makes a great sidekick and Momoa is an awesome bad guy. It's of course perfectly directed by Hill as well who hasn't changed at all in style in the last thirty-some years . The script isn't very deep and the lines are sometimes very cheesy but that's the way it's supposed to be. I enjoyed it more than 'EXPENDABLES' co-stars, of Stallone's, latest action vehicles Schwarzenegger's 'THE LAST STAND' and Statham's 'PARKER' , which came out in theaters weeks apart from each other. They all underperformed greatly at the box office especially this one but people are idiots and have poor taste in movies also all three will kill on video . It's a great B action film, the kind that Stallone and Hill are legendary for!Watch our movie review show 'MOVIE TALK' at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v sH2nsN_uuBI
Bullet To The Head is great and a must for action fans (by dworldeater)
I am a big fan of both Stallone and director Walter Hill, so I have been excited about this for awhile now . I am not disappointed .By reading some of these negative user reviews, it is obvious they either hate action movies or expect more from this than it needs to deliver . Whether you love it or hate it, at least do so for what it is , a straight up action picture.Bullet To The Head is very similar to 48 Hours and Red Heat , also made by Hill and is also fast paced, violent and funny. This won't get any awards, but the film is well made and the performances from the actors are good <more>
enough to move the story between the action scenes. The action is brutal and my main man Sly gives one of his toughest , most badass performances to date. Even though this is'nt doing well at the box office , Bullet To The Head will find its audience and most likely achieve cult status . If you enjoy old school action classics like 48 Hours and Cobra , you will most likely dig this as Bullet .. is both entertaining and well made
Assassin. Fixer. Hit-man. Whatever you call him, the hired gun has been a staple of movies for decades, from Alad Ladd in THIS GUN FOR HIRE to Tom Cruise in COLLATERAL. The best of the breed is certainly Chow Yun Fat as THE KILLER from 1989, and while Sylvester Stallone's latest entry, BULLET TO THE HEAD, is nowhere near that level, it is pretty good.Stallone stars as a lifelong rulebreaker who only knows one way to live: by making sure other people don't. He does have a few rules he only kills people who have it coming in his eyes , never works with cops, and never shoots women or <more>
children. But when a supposedly simple job goes awry and his partner gets killed, Stallone finds himself forced to break one of his basic principles and make a deal with a cop Sung Kang . Someone is behind the scenes pulling the strings, and Stallone is a loose end they want to cut off.As its title suggests, BULLET TO THE HEAD isn't the most subtle piece of filmmaking. It's all about action and suspense, and director Walter Hill knows how to make the most of the basic script. The action is brutal and life is cheap, and Stallone and Kang frequently find themselves backed into corners with no option but to fight their way out. Though their characters don't trust one another, Kang and Stallone have a great chemistry and their choleric exchanges are often surprisingly witty and sometimes truly riotous.Acting is quite good for this type of film, with Stallone having lost none of his powerful on screen presence over the years. His hit-man is hard and dangerous, but not unsympathetic. Jason Momoa is on hand as Stallone's opposite number, a hired gun employed by the antagonists. Some of you may remember Momoa from the remake of CONAN THE BARBARIAN A couple years back. Have no fear, Momoa is a far better mercenary than he was a sword-wielding barbarian. His mercenary is big, bad, and probably crazy, but like Stallone's character lives by a personal code of honor that his more profit-minded employer cannot understand. Rounding out the quality cast is Christian Slater as a white collar criminal who isn't as much in control as he thinks he is, and Sarah Shahi brings a sort of noir-like mystery and beauty to the affair as Stallone's daughter.BULLET TO THE HEAD is a very entertaining film. There's no shortage of explosive action along with the requisite high body count and the cast and crew lift what could have been a pedestrian exercise to a higher plane of professional achievement. This isn't a film that's going to change your life, but if you like actioners and thrillers, you won't regret taking a BULLET TO THE HEAD.
