Bullet To The Head

I'm looking forward to Sylvester Stallone's upcoming crime/action flick, Bullet To The Head. I'll admit, though, that I'm mostly intrigued by the fact that it's the first feature film that Walter Hill has directed since 2002's Undisputed (which, I have to say, I've never seen). I am generally a fan of Hill's films, though, especially stuff like The Warriors, The Long Riders, 48 Hours, Streets Of Fire, Crossroads, Johnny handsome, Trespass, Last Man Standing and Extreme Prejudice.

And yeah, I like Stallone a lot, too. Bullet To The Head, based on a French graphic novel called Headshot (or, more precisely, Du plomb dans la tĂȘte, which roughly translates to "Lead in the Head"), by Alexis Nolent (aka "Matz"), hits theaters on February 1st.

I'm also looking forward to this. I haven't seen Undisputed either, but I am a big fan of Walter Hill and I'm curious to see if he's still got the goods after all these years.

Undisputed is an entertaining flick. Nothing earth-shattering, but it does its thing just fine, and its direct-to-dvd sequels (not directed by Hill) are surprisingly good, too.
