A cop and a killer forge a shaky partnership to find out who killed their partners in this throwback buddy action flick starring Sylvester Stallone, and directed by vet Walter Hill. Battle-scarred New Orleans hitman James Bonomo (Stallone) and his longtime partner Louis (Jon Seda) have just executed their latest hit, a cop named Hank Greely (Holt McCallany) when Louis is killed by hulking enforcer Keegan (Jason Momoa) before they can get paid. In the wake of a failed attempt on Bonomo's life as well, Keegan flees the scene, but not before his intended target gets a good look at his face. Meanwhile, Korean NYPD cop Taylor Kwon (Sung Kang) shows up in town determined to find out who killed Greely, his former partner. When Kwon tracks Bonomo down to find out who hired him, both realize that their best hope for catching their respective partners' killers is to team up. Before long, their trail of clues has led them to sleazy lawyer Marcus Baptiste (Christian Slater), who is currently caught up in some shady business dealings with the mysterious and powerful Robert Nkomo Morel (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) that could implicate some serious power players in Washington, D.C. Now each new move that Bonomo and Kwon make could be their last, and as the cop does his best to stay on the right side of the law, the killer uses the only tactics he knows to get results. But even if they manage to get their man, that doesn't change the fact that they'll have to deal with one another once they've taken down their target.

A good old school action movie
This is a movie people either loved it or hated it. I personally loved it! But I also went into it knowing what it was. Its a movie you pop some popcorn, kick back and enjoy the ride. It's not a movie that is going to win any awards by any stretch of the imagination (Well unless Sly gets nominated for another razzee award) But other then that no chance! But it wasn't meant to make people think. I was made for one purpose and that purpose is entertainment! So if your wanting depth, amazing story telling and a movie that will inspire or touch you this isn't the one for you. But if your in the mood for explosions, gun fights, some vulgar language, some half naked hot women and lets not forget old school Sly Stallone then I defiantly recommend this movie.
By now, people associate Sly Stallone with an action film. This is one of those films. I bought it because I've heard about it, and because it was at a great price. It has plenty of action, good storyline, Stallone, Jason Momoa--like an "homage" to the 80's action films. So, if you're a fan of Stallone and like action films, this film's a bargain...literally.
A friend of mine suggested I watch this, and I do not regret it. It's a good action movie if you're not looking for anything that takes it self too seriously. It will keep you entertained between the action scenes and occasional witty humor. This film reminds you of action flicks from the 80's.
Who doesn't love an ax fight?
Bullet to the Head throws it way back to mindless fun action films from yesterday. Stallone shines as always just as Jason Momoa, the reason I bought the Blu-ray as he is quickly becoming one of my faves.
This movie involved 3 sets of relationships held tenuously together to fight the bad guy. It had good character development and plenty of action to keep you watching. I found this movie very entertaining.
