Bullet to the Head Reviews

Will appeal to certain audiences, and those hoping for silly fun in the vein of throwaway one-liners and axe-fight showdowns will not be disappointed. For others, Stallone's latest is best viewed on smaller screens, if at all.

I can hardly call Bullet to the Head bad; it's just so bland on pretty much every level that there's not much to say but 'meh'.

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...

At times it feels as though the whole thing has been scrubbed clean of anything resembling theme.

The plot existing solely as a breather in between inserting yet more bullets into yet more heads.

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

A big, dumb action film that charges forward believing Stallone is charismatic enough to sell even bad writing. He's not.
June 30, 2013
As unsubtle as its title, this action film is repetitive and packed with silly cliches that should be put to sleep.

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.

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.

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.

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.
February 16, 2013
... a star vehicle for Stallone first and foremost, giving him a potentially intriguing antihero character surrounded by a story that shoots blanks.
February 9, 2013
An okay action movie but sadly Stallone has entered into the "who cares" category.

The filmmakers must see this as idea laundering - if a movie comes from a French graphic novel inspired by American movies, then it's not really stolen moronic movie junk. It's French!
February 5, 2013
It's not a terrible movie, merely a mediocre one.
February 5, 2013
More curdled nostalgia than cinematic excitement.
February 4, 2013
Hill's eye for back alley scuzz is as strong as ever, but the story, adapted from a French graphic novel by Alexis Nolent, is so die-cut it gives neither him nor Stallone anything to work with.
