1 of 4

“..this marks a new low for Sly. Gratuitously violent and brimming with slurs against Asians, this may be his first mean-spirited movie. It's certainly his worst..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..this is surely an inside joke..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
“..such touches aside, though, Bullet to the Head is less authentic Delta blues than gore-spattered bubblegum..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
2 of 5

“..since "Bullet to the Head" feels as if its savvy star merely skipped past the 20-odd years since the early 1990s, a rehash like that ought to be easier than doing mildly sparky but so-so movies like this..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
Review rate : C-

“..it isn't cute. It's just an embarrassment..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

“..if "Bullet" had anything else going for it, it might be a little more than just the grungy revenge flick of the week..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]
3 of 5

“..feels like the type of picture that doesn't really get made anymore..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
“..Bullet in the Head is a throwback to the past with its eyes trained on the present, and it proves Hill has kept up with the times..”
by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald]
“..boring holes into people as disposable as paper gun targets..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“..a hard-hitting exercise in beefy, brainless fun..”
by Jordan Mintzer [Hollywood Reporter]

LATEST REVIEWS

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

6 WAYS TO DIE :

“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
