Bullet to the Head (2012)



Walter Hill directs Sly Stallone, Jason Momoa and Christian Slater in this hitman revenge actioner.

Some inventive comic book framing, a nice turn from Momoa as a “Bad Guy who should win” and a final fight between he and Sly involving antique fire axes are all that stops this from being a very blah Parker novel rip-off. Whenever the characters interact you get the feeling every role or line was written with DTV king 50 Cent’s limited acting abilities in mind. The fact that Curtis didn’t even turn up and they had to cast decent character actors in all the parts doesn’t help improve the plod to that eventual spike of a closing battle. Still after ending on a high we then get three unnecessary epilogues. What is this? A beer and pizza night Return of the King?
