Sylvester Stallone stars in Bullet To The Head.


It’s action all the way for muscle-bound Sly in Walter Hill’s explosive new action thriller.

HOLLYWOOD action man Sylvester Stallone brings his finely honed torso back to the big screen in this high-octane offering from director Walter Hill.

Looking more muscle-bound than ever, Stallone plays hitman Jimmy Bobo. Despite his rather hazardous, not to mention illegal occupation, Bobo ends up joining forces with cop Taylor Kwon (Sung Kang).

Why? Well, it seems both saw their partners killed at the hands of the same man, a ruthless mercenary called Keegan. The villain is played by Jason Momoa, last seen in the title role in the 2011 remake of Conan the Barbarian.

Despite being on opposite sides of the law and functioning on radically different moral compasses, Bobo and Kwon decide to team up and hunt Keegan down by any means necessary.

Based on the graphic novels by Alexis Nolent, Walter Hill (Last Man Standing, 48 Hrs) says he has been aiming for a 1980s-style action movie with a buddy-cop vibe. Find out if he has managed it when Bullet To The Head (15) is released tomorrow (Fri).
