Bullet to the Head
Sylvester Stallone, Christian Slater, Jason Momoa
When the definitive history of the action film is written, it will most assuredly include a lengthy chapter devoted to Walter Hill, the quiet genius behind The Warriors, 48 Hrs. , and Undisputed. A bourbon-soaked Hollywood legend who learned his craft the hard way — through producing and screenwriting—Hill is back behind the camera for a Stallone vehicle involving hit men, detectives, and New Orleans. It has the potential to be an alluring cocktail, spiced with a hint of John Woo–style revenge. Perennial wiseass Slater and Game of Thrones star Momoa are also on hand. If you can get past Stallone’s increasingly plastic look and still-wooden delivery, there could be some cheesy fun to be had here.
