Bullet to the Head goes in one side and out the other

BULLET-TO-THE-HEAD

Bullet To the Head goes in one side and out the other. It doesn’t hurt but it doesn’t feel good either. Hired hitman Jimmy Bobo (Sylvester Stallone) is doubled crossed by his employers after a job. He is bent on revenge, but is stuck with an unlikely partner, Taylor Kwon (Sung Kang) an out-of-town cop investigating his Bobo’s latest hit. Die-hard Stallone fans will appreciate his bad-ass demeanor and off-color jokes, but contemporary audiences will not find the humor funny and Stallone’s slow delivery becomes tiresome compared to the younger, faster, and better looking Keegan (Jason Momoa). Honestly, I was rooting for Keegan because his character seemed much more interesting. The plot is predictable, but there are some unexpected moments that go against the grain and the final fight scene with fire axes is very exciting. I am a big fan of Walter Hill, but this bullet does not hit its target.
