By Jordan Mintzer
Hollywood Reporter

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Feb 01, 2013

~~<p>Like the amped-up comeback tour of two rockers who had their heyday sometime in the mid-&rsquo;80s, Sylvester Stallone and director Walter Hill (&ldquo;48 Hrs.,&rdquo; &ldquo;The Warriors&rdquo;) join forces for a hard-hitting exercise in beefy, brainless fun with the New Orleans-set action movie &ldquo;Bullet to the Head.&rdquo;</p>
<p>This assassin-cop buddy movie aims to accomplish little more than delivering tons of kinetic wham-bam fight sequences and laugh-out-loud one-liners, which Stallone recites from a face that seems literally frozen in time.</p>
