Product Description

Bullet (DVD)

Mickey Rourke is Butch "Bullet" Stein and the late Tupac Shakur is Tank in this stylish, Julien Temple-directed crime drama. Narrative is secondary to atmosphere in the violent, yet sensitive tale of an ex-con (Rourke) attempting to adjust to life on the outside. The minute Bullet emerges from the pen, however, the blood and profanity begin to flow just as freely as the references to Dali and Picasso (his younger brother is an artist). His drug problem is bad enough, but the biggest threat comes from the Kangol-sporting, eye-patched Tank, who intends to get his revenge for the eye Bullet took from him. Classical music and opera, meanwhile, bump up against hip-hop and Barry White. Despite the billing, this is Rourke's show all the way and Tupac's part is quite small in comparison. Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs) and Adrien Brody (The Pianist) star as Bullet's eccentric brothers. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

4.0 out of 5 stars Not A Cookie Cutter Action Flick July 26, 2003
This is a straight to video classic that I rented several years ago. It's good to rediscover it on DVD. If you're not a big fan of Hip Hop, don't let Tupac's presence in the film scare you off. There's plenty of dark humor and macho fight scenes to appeal to a broader demographic than just rap enthusiasts. Most of the dark humor is supplied by Ted Levine who portrays one of film's craziest Vietnam War veterans since Robert Deniro's Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver. Fans of Silence of the Lambs will remember Ted Levine's performance as that loveable genital tucking women suit making serial killer who was always making people rub the lotion on the skin. Ted is equally crazy in this film and will have you laughing at his lunacy. When you throw in a midget, a character named Franky Eyelashes, and some great Barry White tunes, you got yourself a great original guy flick to watch with your buddies. The DVD is lean on extras but includes wide/full screen and unrated/rated R versions of the film. There are some behind the scenes interviews with Mickey Rourke, Tupac, and recent oscar winner Adrien Brody.

5.0 out of 5 stars criterion quality, all priceless January 29, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An important and contemporary film about street life to be sure, but there's something magical about Bullet. First of all, you'll never see anything like this again, Tupac: gone, Mickey: just different these days, and Wahlberg played "Big Balls". You can tell, that things just came together to make an incredible film. Little details of realism and humble, masterful performances. For example, even character interaction with "Big Balls" is given careful attention. Bullet says in a caring way "how you doin Big Balls?". He treats Balls with respect because Balls says exactly what he feels (and is not afraid - hence "Big Balls"). Even after Balls says "none of this ...happened until this crazy ... showed up" Bullet is calm and doesn't take it as a personal attack, he just sits there and let's them yell it out. Bullet is afraid of no-one. Neither is "Tank" (Tupac), and "men love to hate". So the story goes. It's not just drama, (I hate drama) it's priceless nuance and good filmaking. If you enjoyed New Jack, Menace2 or Sugar Hill, Bullet will blow em away. You'll be touched, but don't let that stop you. Don't miss Bullet.
As for the storyline: Bullet (Mickey Rourke) gets out of prison and the very same day, exacts revenge on Tank (Tupac) by robbing some of his smack customers and stabbing one his dealers in the eye. From there, we go through family and interpersonal dysfunctions of Bullet and his foemen. There is more tragedy than optimism, so be warned. One thing fer sure, you'll never shoot smack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense, gripping and realistic. March 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is one powerful film. It has one of the best openings I've seen in a long time. The camera pans over fall foliage then walls, until, gradually, a prison yard is revealed. The music changes too. From Vivaldi to rap. The shift in music sets up the whole film.
Bullet, played with a simmmering intensity by Mickey Rourke, has just gotten out of prison at age thirty-five and is returning to his parent's home. He is a boy gone wrong, a man whose life has spun out of control. He knows his future. The movie is about what he does while he is holding it at bay. It is realistic and gripping. You may be surprised at how much it moves you. I was.

By Greg
Format:VHS Tape
This is the best films I have ever seen. It is a damn shame that a film with such an excellent story line never made the theaters. Bullet has great music from vivaldi and Barry White that make the scenes very powerful and touching. Mickey Rourke plays the part of Butch "Bullet" Stein great. I love his laid back personality in the movie even though he is a heroin addict. Tupac also plays his part of a drug dealer really well and I know some people are dissapointed that he has a small role in this film but you shouldn't like this film just cuz Pac is in it. This film really shows you how a family can be destroyed by a life of drugs and crime. This is my favorite film and I can't describe in words how good it is and how powerful and touching some of the scenes are. We should all try to have Bullets laid back personality because that's what makes Mickey Rourke so great in this movie. Mickey Rourke cowrote this film as "Sir Eddie Cook" which is a name that he goes under as a writer which really shows you how talanted he really is to make such a great film. Hey also was the music supervisor for the film. I love all the scence in the movie but one of my favorites is when Bullet his younger brother Ruby and friend Lester get high while they are driving right after bullet gets out of jail and the Barry White song "Never Never Gonna Give You Up" comes on. That song is just perfect for that part. Any one who says this is a bad film really doesn't understand movies and the message that directors and writers try to get across to people. These people critize because they could never create anything like this and are flat out ignorent so don't even pay attention to their reviews. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow.. November 26, 2005
Well first off, i must correct Amazon's Plot Synopsis...Butch does not Snort coke....he's just an H Junkie. Anyways, this is a great movie that shows how lawless and rough street life can be. Very violent, but that's kinda what you have to expect from a movie called "Bullet". Tupac's role isn't as prominent as i expected..but Mickey Rourke does an excellent job of carrying the movie. Unless you're offended by Violence, Drugs, and lots of F-Bombs, i'de definitely recommend this.
