Bullet to the Head ​is sufficient for some beautifully shot bits of crackling violence, but devoid of the unique thrills it could have delivered.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Bullet To The Head is not so much a film as an extended homage.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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

I didn't think it was possible to make a boring action film in New Orleans, but Bullet to the Head proved me wrong.
Full Review | 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.

Sleazy but dull, this glorified TV movie continues the self-destruction of the once-talented Walter Hill's career.
Full Review | 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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

The title itself should deter viewers who favor smart cinema over mindless mayhem.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
February 3, 2013
It's a series of fight scenes that build to a climax that is surprisingly unsatisfying in the way it ultimately plays out.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.
January 31, 2013
By the end I could have used a Bulleit to the mouth.
January 31, 2013
It strains to be lively and the basso-voiced Stallone works hard but there's no disguising a dumb, unimaginative screenplay.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Cut together like a beer commercial on poorly lit cheap video without much panache.
Full Review | Original Score: C-

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It says "revenge never gets old." Yeah, but Sylvester Stallone did. Yikes.
