REWIND REVIEW: Bullet to the Head

Bullet to the Head

Sylvester Stallone, Sung Kang


February 1, 2013

Walter Hill

Warner Bros. Pictures

1 hour 31 minutes



It's one thing to make a fun action movie, but it's another thing to make a generic action movie that is rarely fun or entertaining.  Walter Hill's "Bullet to the Head" falls in the latter category unfortunately, and boy it doesn't even try to be something other than mediocre.  Sylvester Stallone stars in this movie and does practically nothing other than point a gun and spew really stupid catchphrases that are neither clever or funny.  The direction from Hill, along with the screenplay, offer nothing new and nothing exciting.  Even when it tries to deliver on the things that action fans love to see, including bloody violence and women's cleavage, it does it in a way where the audience is just saying to themselves "Who Cares?"  Overall, there's nothing else really to say about "Bullet to the Head," not even a synopsis (the entire film is basically shown in all of the trailers), because this is a film that is worth forgetting about and just to keep moving along.  There are a lot of better movies out on DVD right now.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
