Bullet to the Head trailer, Stallone's non-Expendables film
Bullet to the Head is a film from Walter Hill the director of films such as Wild Bill, Another 48 Hrs., Johnny Handsome, Brewster's Millions, 48 Hrs. and The Driver. So that's good pedigree already and he co-wrote the script with Alessandro Camon who co-wrote The Messenger, again sounding good, and it's adapted from the Alexis Nolent graphic novel and stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa, Christian Slater, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Sung Kang.
So far it sounds great, however the road through production has been a little bumpy and there have been some problems with the production, however it's arrived along with a trailer. See what you think of Stallone outside the Expendables.
The trailer for Bullet to the Head is certainly action packed although it does feel a little disjointed as it tries to tell a little much of the story, be warned there's a potential character spoiler there.
The simple blurb goes like this:
After watching their respective partners die, a cop and a hitman form an alliance in order to bring down their common enemy.
So what do you think? Sylvester Stallone looks great but the film does feel like its picking bits from plenty of other similar films such as the dynamic of the partnership, the old agent returning to action and not getting with the way the world is now, all the way to the core thread of the daughter being kidnapped and him seeking revenge. It all feels done before.
Still, it's Stallone in full on action mode, what's wrong about that?
