Hollywood Reporter

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

Like the amped-up comeback tour of two rockers who had their heyday sometime in the mid-’80s, Sylvester Stallone and director Walter Hill (“48 Hrs.,” “The Warriors”) join forces for a hard-hitting exercise in beefy, brainless fun with the New Orleans-set action movie “Bullet to the Head.” 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. ‘BULLET TO THE HEAD’ Rated: R Opens today
