Snippet from My Review: (read my full review here)

Bullet to the Head tries so hard to play like a throwback ’80s actioner, while not appearing to look like its trying, it’s laughable. I’ve also been worn so thin on films with aging characters baffled by technology that the egregious lengths Walter Hill’s new film goes to tell me how much information can be found on a smartphone that I wanted to pull mine out of my pocket and stomp it into a thousand pieces.

Starter Questions

Here are a couple of questions to help get the conversation started.

1.) Did you think Stallone and Kang had any chemistry on screen?

2.) What did you make of the constant references to Kwon’s cellphone and his magical power to summon information?

3.) Did it bother you at all that Kwon continued to talk about how Bobo was nothing but a bad guy and yet he continually led him to people to kill, making him an accessory to murder?
