I've been at 2 different screenings and have seen two different versions of the movie - the US cut distributed & cut by Giant Ape and the much better Director's Cut distributed by SC Films International. I just recommend everyone - WATCH THE DIRECTOR'S CUT - these are 2 completely different movies! As a huge fan of Trejo I can't believe what these incompetent guys at Giant Ape did with this movie! The Director's Cut International version is really a great cinematic action-thriller, but the Giant Ape / US version is a slow-paced drama which reminds of a typical boring <more>
TV crime movie. The slow-paced US cut misses a lot of necessary scenes which are very important for the story, for the characters and for the pace of the movie. Instead it seems like they just put together the worst & most boring scenes with an absolutely boring score Chris Ridenhour's score in the Director's cut is much, much more better! . The Giant Ape cut should be seized immediately!This should be shown on all film schools worldwide as a classic example how editing & scoring can change & ruin a movie.Everyone who watches both versions will understand my anger. If you want to see a good movie just watch the Director's Cut International version ! 9 of 10 stars for the Director's Cut. 1 of 10 stars for the US version.
DANNY TREJO IS GREAT IN THIS EXCELLENT ACTION THRILLER!!! (by lukem-52760)
Bullet shows why "Danny Trejo" has become such a great Action Hero in trashy slashy B-movie Cult Cinema, Trejo is doing now what the likes of "Charles Bronson" was doing in the 80's making gritty violent action Thriller's that mosty went straight to video or in Trejo's case straight to dvd & it's so Cool!!!I give this a 9 as "Machete" is his 10/10 but "Bullet" is just as great, it's an excellent little gritty crime Thriller thats got plenty of gun action & some good fights with the legendary Danny Trejo in another rare lead <more>
& he's excellent once again. Bullet is a low budget B-movie in the Action Thriller genre but it's made really well & it's the best role Trejo has ever played after his iconic "Machete" character but only in the first "Machete" film 2010 , as the sequel "Machete kills" was Terrible it was a stupid silly spy spoof just terrible!!! But "Bullet" is a very cool movie with Trejo as a very tough & rugged old cop who turns vigilante out for revenge when his grandson is captured, "frank Bullet" is used as a pawn in a plot to get a cop killer off of death row it's just a simple revenge story, it all feels nice & old school like an 80's or 90's action Cop Thriller."BULLET" is fine for a low budget easy watching, Action movie starring a cult B movie HERO such as "DannyTrejo" in a rare lead role & he gives a nice solid performance, he can act!!! In fact in some ways this little Thriller is just as good as "Machete" as this movie concentrates on just "Trejo" as our hero but in his ,"Machete" he often gets put to the side because there's so many other stars/Characters in the movie!!! Make no mistake, "Bullet" is a "Danny Trejo" movie!!! Yep "Trejo" proves once again that he has a good screen presence & makes a really cool tough,gritty,violent old school action hero & as a "Trejo" fan that's pure late night entertainment for me!!! Trejo has been around for so long & yes has starred in bit parts in so many things & yes alot have been terrible but for the best of "Trejo" i say double bill "MACHETE" & "BULLET"
