He was the best in the business... until one bad hit made him the target. Sylvester Stallone stars as a New Orleans hitman who reluctantly forms an alliance with a DC detective (Sung Kang -- Fast Five) to bring down the killer of their respective partners in this action thriller from Walter Hill (48 Hours). From the back alleys of the Big Easy to the corridors of power, the mismatched duo uncover a violent web of corruption, money and murder -- and learn that their unlikely partnership might just be the key to staying alive. Based on the graphic novel and adapted by Oscar® nominee Alessandro Camon (The Messenger), it's killer vs. killer in this nonstop action thriller.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Bullet to the Head's unapologetically trashy thrills evoke memories of its star and director's proud cinematic pasts -- but sadly, those memories are just about all it has to offer.

Over-the-top violence, nudity, drugs in dark Stallone movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Bullet to the Head is the first teaming of legendary action director Walter Hill and legendary action star Sylvester Stallone. The result is extremely violent in an over-the-top way, with wall-to-wall, extra-noisy, extra-bloody shooting, fighting, stabbing, and explosions. There's also nudity (mostly topless women) in a few scenes, and language is strong, with several uses of "f--k" and "s--t." Characters drink in bars, and a minor character snorts cocaine in one scene. Though the movie isn't realistic, it's still very intense overall and isn't recommended for anyone but the most mature teens and up.
