Bullet to the Head

Jays Rating:

Shots to the head, stabbings to the body and punches every where else are what you will find in the action, crime, thriller Bullet to the Head. Sylvester Stallone plays a Tattooed hit man whose partner is killed by a mercenary played by Jason mamoa in a New Orleans bar. When a Washington detective played by Sung Kang arrives in town to find out his partner is also killed the two form an unlikely alliance to find the guilty party while investigating a real estate conspiracy. This is supposed to be one of those buddy comedies with lots of action and cheezy one-liners. First the one-liners weren’t funny and the chemistry between the 2 lead characters just wasn’t there. Chang is just a light weight compared to Stallone and the film would have been better without him. (It couldn’t have been much worse) One of the best things about this movie is that it was only 90 minutes that spread over several days and somehow nobody ever had to sleep. (I would have slept during the film but it was too loud) Looking for a positive word, it has a tremendous body count and the plot well it’s really irrelevant. Stallone’s screen presence is the only thing that kept this film from dropping below a D+ rating.

This movie has been given an R rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals. I rely more on a good story line than special effects. Visit my website at: blindsidereviews.com
