Bullet to the Head, Film Review
Bullet to the Head is Based on the French comic Du Plomb Dans La Tete, the film tells the story of hitman Jimmy Bobo (Stallone) who must learn to cooperate with detective Taylor Kwon (Kang, Han from the Fast and Furious films) when both of their respective partners are killed.
This is a very simple action film based around revenge. With a few action scene, the final battle between Bobo and films main villain Keegan. (Jason Momoa from Game of Thrones and Stargate Atlantis.) is the best and shows that Stallone still got it at his age.
Christian Slater also joins the cast, if only briefly, but does a good job as the rich, sleazy lawyer he steals every scene that he is in.
Bobo is believable as a hitman, but Kwon come across as a little wet behind the ears detective. He also uses his phone a lot to get information from his office back in DC.
As I said this is a very simple film that moves along at nice pace, but there is nothing in it that really stand out, except that Stallone at his age can still throw down with someone half his age.
This is the films biggest problem the story is very lack lustre and there are far better films out there with this sort of storyline.
This is the perfect film that you don’t have to think much about and get to kill some time. Once you have watched it, it will be quickly forgotten.
I give Bullet to the Head a 2 out of five.
James Bonomo: I know. I’ve heard this speech before. We should’ve taken him in!
