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]

“..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

ALOHA :

“..the chemistry is mostly forced, the story without an emotional core. And though Crowe's facility for language can be striking, here it never moves beyond self-consciousness..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]

TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS :

“..Tanu Weds Manu Returns is as entertaining and engaging a film as any that Bollywood has delivered this year..”
by Harish Jaiswal [Cine Magazine Digital]

BARELY LETHAL :

“..the movie has a few cute moments, but for the most part it's as predictable as being bored in trigonometry..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

SURVIVOR :

“..director James McTeigue ( V for Vendetta) has turned in a crisply efficient thriller that doesn’t surprise but still manages to be mildly entertaining over the course of its predictable 96 minutes..”
by Cary Darling [DFW.com]

SAN ANDREAS :

“..it's hard to appreciate San Andreas as much more than a series of special effects vistas: impeccably detailed, completely plastic..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MACBETH :

“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

INSIDE OUT :

“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]

SICARIO :

“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

SEA OF TREES :

“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
