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.

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

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.

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.

Walter Hill has lost none of his directorial prowess!

Stallone still mumbles the lines, but his timing is pretty good and the jokes are well done. Violent as the film is, the special effects and stunts are impressive, especially the ax fight at the end.

Stallone and Hill make the often-corny dialogue sound not only plausible but weirdly logical.

With a cracked-asphalt voice, a shaved-wildebeest hide, the veined musculature of Swamp Thing and the apparent flexibility of a tree trunk, the aging Sylvester Stallone remains a commanding, amusing and somewhat awe-inspiring screen presence.

Thanks to Hill's directorial brio and some hot-wired one liners, Stallone can still put bad folks out of their misery real fast.

This is a very violent police action film, and that is all you can expect from it.

Not a classic action film, but it's a decent genre entry and the fight scenes are worth the price of admission.

Don't bother with plot coherence or plausibility - if you're going to a Stallone film for logic, then you're in the wrong theater.

This is hard-R action done old-school style. If that's your game, then gather up and throw in.

Sylvester Stallone plays to his base in a gratifying return to the action genre

Jason Mamoa also impressed me as the villain; all his sins for "Conan the Barbarian" are forgiven and hopefully the climactic axe fight will prove to Stallone that we have a new Expendable cast member the next time around.

Bullet to the Head is a blunt movie with a blunt star. It's also bluntly entertaining.

On its own degenerate terms, the movie works.

Stallone is back with a vengeance. As Jimmy Bobo, New Orleans hitman, he scores his most efficient adrenalin rush since First Blood ... Combines Eastern Promises violence and the buddy banter of 48 HRS.
