Based on Alexis Nolent’s Headshot graphic novel series, the film finds New Orleans hit man Jimmy Bobo (Stallone) teaming up with Washington DC cop Taylor Kwon (Sung Kang) to hunt down the killers of their respective partners.
Watching the trailer, you pretty much get the vibe you would expect from any Sylvester Stallone-starring action film: tons of action, explosions, and guns going off with Sly giving us some one-liner wisdom here and there.
Maybe the most notable draw this movie has is the return of Walter Hill (The Warriors) to the director’s chair for the first time in almost 10 years after 2002’s prison boxing film, Undisputed. Not to say he hasn’t been busy over the years, but he’s mostly been sticking to television, directing episodes of Deadwood and the two-part miniseries Broken Trail, as well as a producing gig on this summer’s Prometheus.
With this film (and another currently in production) Hill seems to be staging a directing comeback on the feature film side of things, which is nice to see.
Bullet To The Head will land in theaters on February 1, 2013, and also stars Sarah Shahi, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Christian Slater and Holt McCallany.
