A completely retro movie. I flashed back throughout this flick to some of the best years of my life as I thought about films like Dolph Lundgren's "Showdown in Little Tokyo," "Red Heat," and even "They Live."

What you have here is Stallone in his "Cobra" mode, a true bad ass, take no prisoners type of hero. He plays Jimmy Bobo, and he's hellbent on revenge after his partner is knifed by the dude from "Game of Thrones." I'm glad Jason Momoa is in this film because for the first time in my life, my girl dragged me to see a Stallone flick!

Enter in Detective Taylor Kwan, an upright law enforcement-type dude, who uses his investigative powers to discover Jimmy Bobo is an active hitman, and he and his partner killed a powerhouse in the criminal underworld. In fact, Kwan is certain Bobo's partner died as a result of the hit, and tries to lure Bobo into working for him to find a ruthless criminal.

The two eventually form an uneasy alliance and the movie is slam packed full of fist action and bullets and man, there is even an axe fight. Complete with a Christian Slater cameo as slimy Marcus Baptiste, why not see this film?

It's totally 80,s, early-90's style and it's banging, man. Nice nudity as well.

This movie is high octane fun! Stallone is in rediculously good shape for 66! I have been a fan of his since i was a child growing up in the 80's. So I have seen a boat load of Stallone's films, the good and the bad. This is one of his best! Don't let the critics fool you, this is a must see if you are a fan of this type of film. My girlfriend who is not a fan, even liked this movie. We found ourselves laughing at the banter between Stallone and his new partner, who happens to be an Asian cop. Stallone is constantly throwing racist comments at him, but it is all in good fun. Stallone's age works to his advantage, his face is chiseled from years of wear and tear, as is the rest of his body. He looks like he was carved out of stone. There is no other actor like him. Christian Slater plays a small, but good roll, as a crooked lawyer. The masquerade ball he throws for his guests is done well. It's fun to watch Stallone creeping around the party wearing a strange mask. I don't want to give a bunch of this film away, so i will just say this. High energy, well acted, well directed, characters are very believable. Go see the movie then buy it when it comes out. It is a keeper! Oh, did I mention Stallone gets into an ax fight?? "What are we, Vikings?" Stallone grunts. GREAT FILM!!

Bullet to the Head. The name is based on a French Graphic Novel. Sylvester Stallone plays a Hit Man and the character suits him very well. He is very likable. Stallone delivers a great performance. The movie, is loud, explosive, funny and very entertaining. I loved the rock and roll music that plays throughout the movie. It adds up to the 80's feel that the movie has. Walter Hill did a good job directing.
Bottom line is, Bullet to the Head does not disappoint. Certain actors have come and go. But legends like Sylvester Stallone have proved over and over that they can continue to be on top of their game even after being in the movie business for FIVE DECADES.
Good job Sly. You are FANTASTIC.....

Good flick! I enjoyed it! the script was as serviceable as it needed to be! I was impressed with Stallone's stamina and unflinching bad-assness. It was great to see him back on the big screen playing a different character. Old school action is back!

Regardless of the tragedies, I see nothing wrong with the film. Gun violence is common in a number of movies and remember it's only a movie. Why should a movie be cancelled or delayed because of a few nutcases who can't separate fantasy from reality. It's tragic what happened this past year, however, I see nothing wrong with this movie. I love action movies and Hollywood won't let a few nutcases cancel or delay movies. IT'S ONLY A MOVIE!!

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.

I don't understand why the critics were so hard on this movie. This is a great retro 80's movie. It was everything it was supposed to be, full of action and dry humor. The story is not bad but is predictable. Sylvester Stallone enters into an unlikely alliance with by-the-book detective Sung Kang to bring down the ruthless killer of their respective partners. The banter between Stallone and Sung Kang is great. Great looking Sarah Shahi is also in this and, a great awesome actor that i had no idea was also in this, Christian Slater. Surprising actor was the monster, Jason Momoa, 6'5" of the "Conan the Barbarian" fame. I did like the match-up of Sung Kang, a Korean, great call. If you hadn't noticed, South Korea is into full blown action movies and produce some great ones. Wal-Mart, for some odd reason, has a lot of these type of great movies.

I don't why some people watch movies like this if they don't like action, revenge, guns, and good fights. It's kind of why I don't watch "The Sound of Music". This is a down and dirty, gritty, old fashioned kick ass Stallone movie. All around good movie and he has a hot daughter to boot. The people that give this bad reviews, probably don't like The Expendables or Dirty Harry either. Rotten Tomato critics shouldn't watch it either since they wouldn't know a good movie if it bit them in the butt.

For a guy his age, Stallone is in great shape. I'm sure there are those of you who say he's not that great, but I consider him a great action icon. This movie is one of Walter Hills first in quite some time, and it's full of action and very good cinematography. The banter between Stallone and Sung Kang is great. The plot is somewhat predictable, but the action and acting make up for it. I gave it 5 stars due to my love of action flicks, and it's one of the best in recent times, even better than Expendables 2.
