Action - Like most Sylvester Stallone starring vehicles, this is a gritty,
violent action film where story is completely secondary. This is
more or less a buddy film with co-star Sung Kang. Christian Slater
has a small supporting role. Language, violence, nudity, and drug
content makes the film inappropriate for children.
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words; 14 S-words; 1 GD; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Some nonsexual nudity. VIOLENCE: Bloody shootings, beatings, stabbings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and cocaine. ACTION: Fights, chases, shootouts, explosions. COMEDY: Banter and wisecracks.
Roger EbertFull Review Average 'Bullet to the Head' happily indulges in many action-pic cliches,...
USA TodayFull Review Poor The title says it all, and the film's timing could not be worse.
NY PostFull Review Above Average It's "I Love the '80s'' time once again at the movies, teaming Sylvester Stallone with director Walter Hill in the comic shoot-'em-up 'Bullet to the Head,' an entertaining if nonsensical variation on Hill's greatest hit from that bygone era, '48 Hrs.'

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 37 moviegoers:
There sure wasn't much of an audience for this movie. We were only able to collect 37 reviews from multiple showings.
TEENS:The one female loved "Bullet To The Head," but the one males only rated it average, which isn't very useful since it's only one review.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The two males loved it and the one female rated it above average.
ADULTS:The male reviews aren't that great, especially considering older males are the most likely audience for Mr. Stallone's action films. A few loved it but most rated it above average, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much, but didn't love. The female reviews are somewhat better. Over half either loved it or enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, nearly half only rated it as average, which is a bit disappointing.
