Although Bullet to the Head comes nowhere near the pantheon of the great buddy movies, and some fans of the original graphic novel might wince at the changes, there's enough fun to be had...
Full Review | Original Score: 5.7/10

At times it feels as though the whole thing has been scrubbed clean of anything resembling theme.
September 1, 2017
The plot existing solely as a breather in between inserting yet more bullets into yet more heads.

Bullet to the Head is an adrenaline-fueled, rip-roaring good time that asks little of audiences while still managing to fill their most basic filmgoing needs.

Stallone's dead eyes are betrayed only occasionally by glimmers of humanity: when he spares a would-be victim who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, or when he takes vengeance upon a particularly bad bad guy.

A worthy callback to Stallone's glory days.

The movie's titled Bullet to the Head, what the heck do you think it's going to be?

It says "revenge never gets old." Yeah, but Sylvester Stallone did. Yikes.
Full Review | Original Score: C
July 16, 2013
A big, dumb action film that charges forward believing Stallone is charismatic enough to sell even bad writing. He's not.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Walter Hill's Bullet to the Head is a gritty and tough throwback to times when action films were simple, fun and still considered entertaining and worth the money.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 30, 2013
As unsubtle as its title, this action film is repetitive and packed with silly cliches that should be put to sleep.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.0/5

Nothing to write home about, but with some decent fight sequences, good stunts, and amusing banter between Stallone and Kang. No need to rush out to the cineplex, although worthwhile to catch on-demand later this year.

The roar dies into a hollow echo, the growl gets gutturally one-note and the grit becomes B-movie background. Has too scuzzy a heart to pump out a deep throb of action. Peel this one back and you get more pit than pulp.

The film could be summed by its product placement for Bulleit Bourbon, treated like a rare luxury when it's actually $20 a bottle at Trader Joe's; director Walter Hill serves this inexpensive, everyday material with a serious flourish.

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.

Walter Hill has lost none of his directorial prowess!

What's it about? Some bad guys. And some other bad guys. And some badder guys. And bullets to the head, as though through repetition of the title in action we're meant to finally understand the platonic ideal of how to murder a person with a gun.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
March 1, 2013
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.

Look, Stallone has a perky daughter. Will she end up tied to a chair in a disused refinery (or something)? You know it.

... a star vehicle for Stallone first and foremost, giving him a potentially intriguing antihero character surrounded by a story that shoots blanks.
