There’s something to be said for the evergreen quality of action flicks from the 80s. The mindless action, unnecessary explosions, rehashed stereotypes and endless cliches have all become staples of nostalgic trips down Roundhouse Lane. Quite a few films have recently worked at paying homage to this classic genre, with Sylvester Stallone’s Expendables series at the forefront of the movement. Next up to bat is Bullet to the Head, a buddy cop revenge pic that gives Stallone the opportunity to bash some more skulls while the bashing is good.

Despite all of the effort put into making a gritty, no-holds-barred action thriller, Bullet to the Head just doesn’t do enough to break away from the genre it wishes to pay its respects to. To be fair, the movie does make a few moves in the right direction, but it’s what the film doesn’t do that »
