When things goes wrong, the law does not work. Even the law itself is corrupted. So what do you do? You call in the cops or you hired a rogue cop who does his job professionally and no hesitation at all? One thing for sure, he got arrested for more than 26 times, and yet still, he does a better job than your typical everyday uniform cops. He roams around in New Orleans. And he is a hitman. His name is Jimmy Bobo (Sylvester Stallone) and his side kick, Louis Blanchard (Jon Seda).
Bullet to the head movie was adapted from a graphic novel titled Du Plomb Dans La Tete, did by Alexis Nolent’s from France.
Just after a few months seeing him acting in Expandables 2, it was good to see this hunk on the big screen once more. I can’t quite remember his last movie debut, but one thing for sure, seeing him acting on his own movie set just like Arnold who played Sheriff Owen in The Last Stand gives their individual movie a memorable taste respectively.
I have not yet read the graphic novel so I do not know how good it is compared to this movie on its own.
What I really liked about this movie is just to see how bad ass Jimmy was. As usual, Stallone being himself, there is no hesitation in him at all to beat the crap out of every single bad guys.
After his partner Lion Blanchard died, he did everything all by himself. Not until he met with an Asian detective Taylor Kwan (Sung Kang) who got tagged alongside with him. Jimmy’s motto, “Trust no one…”. He killed bad corrupted cops. But not women and child. That includes a whore. Good enough to see him keeping up with his own standards and definition as a rogue cop.
Detective is not only knowledgeable. He got sharp senses to see through everything. He could even sniff out most wanted criminal for Jimmy. Does he know Kung-Fu? A little.
Well, as what Jimmy said, Trust no One. Not even the cops in uniforms.
