Bullet to the Head

Rated R (MPAA) 91 min. 2013

Sylvester Stallone's grizzled hit man really didn't need a day like this, you know? Playing resigned contract killer Jimmy Bobo with a crunchy sorta detachment, Stallone headlines the hard-boiled gangster flick Bullet to the Head. When Bobo is screwed over and his partner killed, the longtime thug must team up with a visiting detective (Sung Kang) to get revenge and inadvertently clean up basically every level of corruption in all of New Orleans. Directed by veteran Walter Hill, and based on the French graphic novel Du Plomb Dans La Tete, Bullet isn't much on intellectual diatribes. But what it lacks in depth or creativity, the throwback movie makes up for in '70s style brutality with loads of dialogue straight from the grindhouse. Utterly unmemorable, Stallone's crude charisma and the bourbon-soaked plot still give this shooter some firepower. —Jacob Boon
