Thanks to MSN, we now have an international trailer for the upcoming "Bullet to the Head" action thriller, starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Christian Slater. Check it out below.
Plot: Stallone plays a New Orleans hitman who teams with a New York City detective in a high-stakes investigation that leads from the dingy back alleys of New Orleans all the way to the power corridors of Washington, DC. The unlikely duo, brought together by two vicious murders, take on all who stand in their way, and are willing to sacrifice everything to exact revenge.
The new movie is directed by Walter Hill (The Warriors, 48 Hrs) and is set to hit theaters on February 1st, 2013.

Geez, Sly, how do you stay so ridiculously in shape at your age? Is it a "Syringe In The Ass"?

Haven't bothered to watch this trailer yet because there are way more important things to discuss.
Right now I have a house full of people ready to get there drink on (or keep drinking), and all I care about is posting my love for DREDD. First of all, WHAT A f*ckING MOVIE!!! Its precise and to the point, it doesn't bother with exposition or backstory (except for the 20 second intro narrated by Dredd himself), and it delivers the violence. OH DOES IT DELIVER!!! This is the comic book movie I've been waiting years to see. It exists in its own universe without feeling alien to our own. The future is the most realistic I've ever seen in film and the characters follow suit. No one is larger than life or cartoonishly characterized. The story is confined and refined to its core without countless hands trying to make it something more than it actually is (like TDR or Prometheus). But even within its confines it manages to display an artistic touch that's extremely unique to the movie and its origins. The Slo-mo scenes are far beyond anything thats graced the big screen to this point except for Avatar.
In a word DREDD is visceral, operating purely on instinct without intellect. Now that doesn't mean its dumb. On the contrary its extremely smart in the sense that the characters (especially DREDD) do what real people would do and not what typical irrational Hwood charcters usually do to create suspense and terror. It trust you right into the this world and the action that drives it second by second. You get the feeling that you're in there with Dredd and his partner with danger lurking around every corner, and you're forced to just react to whats coming. The movie is a funhouse, constantly twisting and turning its way through deadly obstacles, but with Dredd as the driver you never feel unsafe. He's a human wrecking ball, cold, hard, and unrelenting, and so is the world he lives in.
The movie is smart, funny (in its own sick way), and completely unapologetic in its delivery. It feels more well rounded than its piers because it actually has a beginning, middle, and end and needs no other installment to be fulfilled. You get the impression that this is just another violent day in the life of Mega City 1 and Judge Dredd. That being said, I'd kill to see another installment. Hell, I want a f*cking series of these chronicles in Dredd's life. Unfortunately the theater was nearly empty on a Friday night in only its second week of release which doesn't bode well for its success. But that's alright, the lack of distractions in the theater made it easier to hear the small audience's thoughts and feelings about the film. They laughed when they were supposed to, cheered when Dredd was on full display, and (most importantly) totally approved when the 3D and visual effects hit their mark. And I was right there with them applauding a true work of art and sitting on the edge of my seat.
All in all it was fantastic! Easily one of the most entertaining films I've seen all year, and far better than more advertised films sucking up all the attention and money at the box office. Its too bad Hwood didn't promote this better. We truly need more films like it.
9/10 Much Love!!!

Ok that trailer looks pretty badass.
Rangerwrites: on September 29th, 2012 at 1:22:46 AM
Jesus SAC, did you type that whole DREDD review with your erection, or what?!
SACdaddywrites: on September 29th, 2012 at 1:44:11 AM
@Ranger: Might as well have. Its as long as a typical Mink rant, but its all positive for a change. That's just love my friend. Good old fashion movie love. You should take some time this weekend and go see a movie in the theater, preferably this one if you have a pair of testicles and love a great action film. You won't be disappointed.
This looks ok... Dredd was very good. I saw it in 2d, may check it out in 3d...

I like the part where the bullet ripped through the different studio logos.
I like the part where Stallone punched the steering wheel.
I like the part where Stallone blew away Christian Slater with a shotgun.
I like the part where dudes were swinging axes at each other.
I like the part where the thing exploded real good.
Walter Hill. Violence. Cheesy metal rock trailer. f*ck yeah.

I wonder how many I.U of HGH he's up to every day.

I don't know. But I think I'll start taking that sh*t.

Sac's review in translation:
"Dredd: Lots and lots of violence, lots and lots of slow-motion and lots and lots of violence. Did I mention the violence? Yes? Sorry. I'm drunk. And even my review was mostly about me and not the movie. Which I can't even remember."
And thanks to Cannon, again, for staying on-topic.
As for the movie in question, never liked Walter Hill. His version of action is droning piffle, unless someone else is directing, like Scott. Pass.

Lol just like Mink to make mountains out of mole hills. If you actually read my post you'd see I only mentioned the violence once and hardly ever talked about myself. There were just too many others positive things to talk about in the movie to focus on just the violence. Next time if you're gonna sh*t on my review at least read it first so you know what you're talking about and don't just come off sounding like a hater. Oh and go see the movie. For someone that's on the site constantly, you've seen very few movies (especially how they were meant to be viewed, at the theater). One might get the impression that your just on the site to spread your negativity. That seems like a waste of time to me.
minkowskiwrites: on September 30th, 2012 at 3:34:56 PM
You know Sac, for a guy who claims he'll never respond to anything I've written (and yet claim to bando that I use the word n*gger super-fluently) you sure do have a thin skin.
And yes, buddy I've seen MANY films, but you folks are always talking about NEW sh*t, and I never rush out to watch a new film, not when I can wait a month or two and see it for 2.50 and then slink into another theater for a freebie film.
As for my negativity, I'm just here to say what I want, and if that includes mostly negative remarks aimed at mostly negative bullsh*t films, so be it. I can't help it if I have a refined cinematic taste.
Finally, your review. My point: it read like cheerleading. Try to be a litle more...objective. Just a suggestion.
