Oh, what a day to be an action fan! The Expendables 2 is releasing today, earlier we got the first trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Last Stand and now it’s the turn of Sylvester Stallone and Walter Hill! I feel like we need that guy from eTV doing a voice-over for Friday Action Night!
“Dey thought he was just an ol’ grandpa wit too much veins, so dey killed his partner and kidnapped his daughter. But now he is out for revenge. Bullets! Explosions! Axe fights wit dat guy from Game of Thrones! Toniiiiiight, on Eeeeee!!!!”
Based on a graphic novel, “Bullet to the Head” tells the story of a New Orleans hitman (Stallone) and a DC cop (Kang) who form an alliance to bring down the killers of their respective partners.
Hot damn, that looks good! It seems like Sylvester Stallone is single-handedly reviving the entire manly action genre lately. The man is testosterone personified. And it’s been far too long since we’ve seen Walter Hill tackle a pure action movie like this. 1996’s Last Man Standing may have been a bit of a dud, but he has an elite level action resume before that: 48 Hrs, Another 48 Hrs, Red Heat, Extreme Prejudice. So having him back directing guys trying to blow each other other up or putting each other’s faces cars is just awesome.
