While there's absolutely nothing new to be found in this film, Stallone proves that even though he may be a senior citizen he can still carry an action flick. If all senior citizens were as fit as him, this would be a very scary world. Meantime as movies go, this one's not half bad. If you see a lot of crime action films, this play will seem familiar, as its plot formula's been done time and time again on screen. Still, it's worth the price of admission and entertaining. That's definitely what I look for in a film. See it. You won't be disappointed.

Look I'm not gonna bash the movie. The trailers looked good but honestly didn't live up to the hype. Bullet To The Head is a kick-***movie, I mean it's balls to the wall action and that's where Sylvester Stallone excels. Honestly I didn't feel the chemistry between the two characters (Jimmy BoBo & Det. Kwon) but I'm in the minority. Look the action is there, the story is ok, but this film is a must for all Stallone fans everyone else can wait for DVD. This film is rated "R" for a reason so responsible parents DO NOT NEED TO BRING SMALL KIDS TO THIS!!! (Mind you I saw some irresponsible parents do just that.)

Wanted to like this movie, but when you don't care about any of the main characters...it's impossible. Stallone's stilted, monosyllabic dialog, a dumb cop, a daughter who can't act her way out of a bag, combined with over the top gratuitous violence makes for one disappointing movie experience. I could have seen a variety of other action movies, but all of them had less than stellar reviews. This one was the better choice of the bunch according to those reviews. Wish I'd just gone to have a nice lunch!

I went into this movie knowing it was probably going to be a rugged man move like the Expendables. Usually, that sort of movie is a good movie theater man flick. I was very mistaken. The plot was extremely lacking. Stallone played a macho hit-man that has a problem with authority and seeks vengeance on his hit-man partner that was killed. There is NO character development and just back acting (except for Stallone and a couple others).
Bottom line, don't waste your money, if anything wait for Redbox but honestly, you would be wasting your money there too.

This was a passable Stalone movie, which felt a tad bit watered-down.
The script was good to very-good. However, I guess the lack of a soundtrack made the movie less dramatic.
There are a couple of good explosions, so that was nice.
If you want to take a girl to a Action-Adventure movie, this one is it!
It was moderately entertaining. For example, if it were on Netflix, I'd probably watch it again. I would not buy another movie-theater ticket to see it again, though.
