Bullet to the Head is sufficient for some beautifully shot bits of crackling violence, but devoid of the unique thrills it could have delivered.
| Original Score: 5/10
Bullet To The Head is not so much a film as an extended homage.
| Original Score: 2/5
As unsubtle as its title, this action film is repetitive and packed with silly cliches that should be put to sleep.
| Original Score: 2.0/5
I didn't think it was possible to make a boring action film in New Orleans, but Bullet to the Head proved me wrong.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
The fights are worth the price of admission (come on people, there's an axe fight!), but as a movie "Bullet to the Head" can't get up there with Sly's other recent endeavors.
Look, Stallone has a perky daughter. Will she end up tied to a chair in a disused refinery (or something)? You know it.
Fans of generic genre action will get their money's worth.
| Original Score: 2/4
Sleazy but dull, this glorified TV movie continues the self-destruction of the once-talented Walter Hill's career.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
At its ridiculous best Bullet reminds us why we liked Stallone in the first place. But time has moved on, for him and for us and there's a point where looking back this way stops being entertaining and starts to become sad.
| Original Score: 6/10
Certainly noisy, occasionally amusing, but chiefly a reminder that the cinematic legacy of dull 1980s storytelling deserves a bullet of its own.
Stallone is still better than Schwarzenegger, but this is just as dumb as "Last Stand," and choppy to the point of incoherence.
The title itself should deter viewers who favor smart cinema over mindless mayhem.
It's a series of fight scenes that build to a climax that is surprisingly unsatisfying in the way it ultimately plays out.
Stallone can still be entertaining, but here he's got no character to play, nothing fun to say, and the craziest hair/hairpiece/scalp growth this side of John Travolta.
By the end I could have used a Bulleit to the mouth.
It strains to be lively and the basso-voiced Stallone works hard but there's no disguising a dumb, unimaginative screenplay.
Cut together like a beer commercial on poorly lit cheap video without much panache.
| Original Score: C-
Bwah bluh gurh [casual racism] fnuh buh gwugh [huge explosion].
A barely passable, if unmemorable, bit of action-heavy entertainment -- as long as you don't think too hard about the script's eye-rollingly contrived setup.
It says "revenge never gets old." Yeah, but Sylvester Stallone did. Yikes.
