[Movie] "Bullet to the Head" Sneak Preview and Trailer

You think you've had enough of Sylvester Stallone on Rambo, Rocky and Expendables? Well, here he is again on his favorite genre. Action! This one I guess is a bit of a thriller. 

Same director as the movie "Streets of Fire" and "48 Hrs.", Walter Hill. The story is based on a French graphic novel "Du Plomn Dans La Tête", written by Matz and illustrated by Colin Wilson.

"Bullet to the Head" also stars Sung Kang ("Fast Five"), Sarah Shahi (Showtime's "The L Word"), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ("G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra"), Christian Slater (TV's "Breaking In"), John Seda (HBO's "The Pacific"), Weronika Rosati (HBO's "Luck"), and Jason Momoa (HBO's "Game of Thrones").

Stallone plays as Jimmy Bobo, a jaded hitman with a long rap sheet and little tolerance for the law. He and partner Louis (Seda) bump off a corrupt ex-cop which results in Louis getting whacked by former mercenary Keegan (Momoa). Detective Taylor Kwon (Kang) thinks there's a link between the two bodies and tracks down Bobo, who saves the cop from an assassination attempt by other police officers on the take.

Kwon and Bobo reluctantly team up to get justice, with the trail leading to hotshot lawyer Marcus Baptiste (Slater) and Robert Morel (Akinnuoye-Agbaje), an unscrupulous real-estate developer looking for a big pay-off.

After watching the trailer, I'm not really sure what to expect of this movie. Would this be less action packed than the two Expendables movie? Should I expect the same action, wit (?), rage and anger from Stallone's recent movies?

Check out the trailer below and see for yourself.

I think they could have gotten a better lead for this, but it would be interesting to see what Stallone still have under his sleeves. As for the Supporting Asian actor? Promising. Good thing Stallone has someone to throw his punchlines with.

What do you think?

"Bullet to the Head" open on February 2013 across all Philippine cinemas.
