Movie Reviews: Bullet To The Head

Sylvester Stallone is probably used to pummeling reviews, but with Bullet to the Head, critics are trying to do to him what Apollo Creed failed to do to Rocky Balboa -- finish him off. Writes Scott Bowles in USA Today: This marks a new low for Sly. Gratuitously violent and brimming with slurs against Asians, this may be his first mean-spirited movie. It's certainly his worst. But Roger Ebert in the Chicago Sun-Times points out that his is the kind of brainless action movie Sylvester Stallone would have starred in circa 1985. That it stars a Stallone who's closer to 70 than 60 is just ... weird. The kindest remarks about Stallone's performance in the film are delivered by Manohla Dargis in the New York Times, who writes: To look at the cubistic arrangement that constitutes Mr. Stallone's face and to witness his fairly restricted physical performance-- he apparently fractured his neck a few years ago and now barely seems able to turn his head -- is to gaze upon a god at twilight. He is at once unearthly and more poignantly human than he has been in years.
