A nice little compendium piece to the ExpendablesBy TheWatchman (520 reviews) from Suburbia , 05 Jun 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]Bullet to the Head is basically a typical Stallone/Schwarzenegger film which would probably be more at home in the eighties or early nineties. Like Arnies The Last Stand it shows off what Stallone does best, i. e. grunt, look mean and generally kill people. This time hes a hitman whose partner gets killed by... well, it doesnt matter. What does is that he makes sure the bodies start piling up. Its an action film. Nothing more, nothing less. There are no great surprises here and, if you know Stallones body of work, you wont really expect much more. If youre looking for deep and meaningful character development with twists and turns and plenty of originality, move alone! If, however, you just want to see Stallone bust heads for an hour and a half, then put your brain on hold and enjoy Bullet to the Head (and quite possibly The Last Stand, as the two films seem to go hand in hand as two of a highly entertaining, if rather dumb kind).

worth renting.By a customer , 15 Jun 2013One of his better films, really good story line, good acting , well worth renting. Keeps you wanting to see the end to see what happens.
It is what it is!!!! Lads Movie!By a customer , 14 Jun 2013This is a lads film and if your expectations are not too high and you accept it for what it is then it will be good to watch. Sly is clearly in good shape and some of the action shots are well put together. The fight scenes are well choreographed and it clearly had a decent budget. There are much better films out there but think of this as Mickey Spillane meets Die Hard and you will be half way there.
A dud bulletBy DDAWG (4 reviews) , 14 Jun 2013I watched this and Arnies Last stand in the same week. The last stand was better. Both are typical action movies with very little plot. Stallone mumbles through Bullet between shooting alot of bad guys in the head. His patrnership with the cop is unconvincing. The cop just seems to be there to whine and complain whilst telling stallone he's going to ' take him down' when the partnership ends. Extremely predictable. Watch Arnies movie instead.
Cheesy but sexy!By a customer , 11 Jun 2013Really cheesy film, acting a bit hit and miss, story was not fabulous, but worth watching for Jason Momoa! ;)
Walter Hills first for 10yrs.By kirrik78 (13 reviews) from Eastbourne , 10 Jun 2013Walter Hill, the king of the mismatched buddy movie takes his turn to reprise what made him great in the 80's. Here we have a sleek 80 minute actioner where a cop has to partner a career criminal to catch a bad guy, like in his classic 48hrs. Like 48hrs i felt an adult approach to the action and violence, and the humour restrained and appropriate. So this is not a Stallone film per-se, he is an actor and is not credited to write, direct, produce, or sing the theme tune on this one. Hes envolvement infront of the camera is of course what will devide its audience. I think Stallone does a good job through-out and, although it would have been a good film without him, his envolvement doesn't mar my enjoyment. And its definetly not as posey as the poor box art portrays. Must mention Jason Momoas brilliant performance as the henchman, great menace and screen presence.
