Bullet to the Head is a fast paced old school action film. It recalls the days of the endless string of somewhat cheesy, but fun action packed crime thrillers of the 80’s to 90’s. The action scenes, the bad guys, the buddy relationship, and the simple plot will remind you of films such as, 48 Hours, Red Heat, Showdown in Little Tokyo, Hard Boiled, Faceoff, and the Lethal Weapon movies. Sylvester Stallone continues his recent good track record of films he began with Rocky Balboa, Rambo, and The Expendables movies.
He is his usual charming, charismatic, and bad ass self in Bullet to the Head. Sylvester Stallone’s role in Bullet to the Head is similar to the tough character he played in the Get Carter remake. The James (Bobo) Bonomo character is cold and will not hesitate to kill his targets, but he also has a good side to him. He really tries to be a good father for his daughter Lisa in Bullet to the Head.
