 Bullet to the Head movie scene

Sylvester Stallone means business in Bullet to the Head.

The great Walter Hill (The Driver, The Long Riders) returns to the feature film directing chair for the first time since the 2002 boxing drama Undisputed with the action thriller Bullet to the Head starring Sylvester Stallone.

Based on Alexis Nolent’s graphic novel Du Plomb Dans La Tete, Bullet to the Head tells the hard-hitting story of New Orleans hit man Jimmy Bonomo (Stallone), who teams up with a D.C. cop (Sung Kang) in an unlikely alliance to bring down the killers of their respective partners.

The latest project to bring Hill to the evocative streets of New Orleans (his Johnny Handsome and Hard Times are set there), Bullet to the Head also stars Sarah Shahi (TV’s Fairly Legal), Christian Slater (Freaky Deaky), and Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian).

Lean, violent and punctuated by Hill’s trademark action sequences, the R-rated Bullet was released wide to U.S. theaters in January, 2013 to a disappointing $9.5 million domestic gross.

The Blu-ray contains the featurette “Bullet to the Head: Mayhem Inc.,” which looks at Stallone blasting his way through gun training and action choreography as he preps for an axe fight (which is sort of reminiscent of the sledge hammer duel at the climax of Hill’s Streets of Fire).
