Bullet to the Head
Hill works his usual magic on the big confrontations the punches hit so hard that the sound of ax handles clacking isnt much blunter but elevating a g ..
Bullet to the Head doesnt try to adapt its star to 2013. It just pretends that were still living in 1986. And for 91 minutes, it just about works.
James Bonomo (Sylvester Stallone) is a hitman that doesnt really care for the cops too much.
