If this is your genre this movie is definitely entertaining.
Not terrifically violent, but that's ok. Good suspense, pretty good story line.
Sylvester is getting a bit old to be the action hero, however he played his character well and it was believable.
This was worth the price to see in the theater.

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!

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.)

Stallone is one of if not the best action movie star of all time. He is a freak of a man whether its all real or artificial I don't know but the man doesn't look like a typical 60 something.
If your looking for Shakespeare keep looking but if you want to turn off your brain and just sit and enjoy an action movie with lots of violence, sexy naked women, and cool one liners then this is your movie. At least it isn't a comic. All hollywood can make is romantic comedies and comic book movies so its nice that Stallone gives us another option to waste our money. Also whats the point of paying 10-12 dollars to see a movie with out some pounding rock and stuff. If I want to watch a more complicated movie I'll watch it in the comfort of my home for a lot less money.

This movie relies on Stallone fans to carry it and is not the kind of movie that is memorable. The story line is mediocre and other than shootings, a couple of hand-to-hand fights and some explosions, the movie doesn't have great intensity or suspense and there's never a good guy bad guy set of characters defined. Apparently Stallone is neither, and everyone he shoots is apparently either a a bad cop or gangster after the fact.
There are several short nudity shots and gun shots to the head to satisfy most action lovers, but the story doesn't carry well and it was hard to establish empathy with any of the characters, including Stallone.
