In New Orleans, the hit men James Bonomo, a.k.a. Jimmy Bobo, and Louis Blanchard execute the dirty cop Hank Greely in a hotel room. But they are betrayed and Louis is stabbed in a bar by the mercenary Keegan while waiting for the payment of the contract. Meanwhile the Washington D.C. police detective Taylor Kwon comes to New Orleans to investigate the murder of Greely, who had stolen evidences from the Police Department. Soon he is shot by two dirty detectives but Jimmy saves his life. Jimmy brings Taylor to the shop of his daughter Lisa and she removes the bullet from his shoulder and nurses him. Taylor and Jimmy form the most unlikely partnership to investigate the crimes and after contacting the intermediate Ronnie Earl that had hired Jimmy and Louis, they discover a network of corruption formed by the lawyer Marcus Baptiste and the entrepreneur Robert Nkomo Morel.

Producer Joel Silver's contract with Warner Bros. - who were distributing the picture - was about to come to an end when Bullet to the Head was in post-production. The relationship between the studio and Silver had deteriorated after Silver accused Warner of botching the release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011). See more »
Near the end, Bonomo meets Kwon in a bar and he is drinking his 2 Bullets bourbon again. When they finish talking, Bonomo is shown tilting his glass all the way back to empty the glass. But when he puts the glass on the bar, we clearly see a small amount of bourbon left in the glass. See more »
The guy I just saved is a cop. That's not the usual way I do things, but sometimes you gotta abandon your principles and do what's right.

A Slyvester Stallone film that continues his emotional hit-man path, which makes you question if this is connected to the Expendables.
A RedBox rental that I found very enjoyable. It's about a hit-man who after losing his partner goes after the origination that set the men up, but Stallone isn't alone. He is joined by a cop who is put on probation (for no reason) but not wanting to stop his investigation he joins Stallone but they are not on the same path (one is with the law, and one isn't). In my opinion this is an okay film that if you are an action fan to go and pick up for a rental. As a Stallone fan though, you need to get this film and keep it next to Rambo and The Expendables. My issues with the film are some weird camera angles/ movements and some flashback sequences. In conclusion watch the film and then question if you wanna keep it or not.
