OPENING FRIDAY

 

Bullet to the Head Sylvester Stallone and director Walter Hill (48 Hrs.) join forces for a hard-hitting exercise in beefy, brainless fun with this assassin-cop buddy movie set in New Orleans. An opening assassination scene introduces us to Jimmy Bobo (Stallone), a tired and tattooed hit man who’s seen it all but still can pack a nasty punch. When Jimmy’s partner (Jon Seda) gets sliced up by a muscle-bound meathead (Jason Momoa), Jimmy vows revenge. He teams with an out-of-town detective (Taylor Kwon) who’s been sent to investigate the murder of his former partner. Rated R, 91 minutes. — The Hollywood Reporter

 

NOW PLAYING

 

Broken City (**) The mayor of New York City (Russell Crowe) hires Billy (Mark Wahlberg), a former New York police detective, to investigate whether his wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is having an affair. But Billy’s digging leads to further revelations. Rated R, 108 minutes. — The Associated Press

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (***) Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson returns with J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel starring Martin Freeman as young Bilbo Baggins. Bilbo joins an army of dwarfs and Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) for a long march and multiple battles to prove his bravery. As usual, Jackson delivers a technically remarkable film, filled with memorable costumes and sets. Rated PG-13, 166 minutes. — Boo Allen

The Last Stand (***1/2) Arnold Schwarzenegger’s return to the screen is essentially an amped-up version of Rio Bravo, with some Jackass-style high jinks courtesy of Johnny Knoxville himself. A Mexican drug kingpin (Eduardo Noriega) daringly escapes federal custody and heads for a quiet Arizona border town where Schwarzenegger, as the sheriff, rounds up a posse of misfits to stop him. Rated R, 107 minutes. — AP
