BULLET TO THE HEAD is an action thriller about a hitman and a cop who partner up to catch a gang of criminals. It is rated 15 for strong bloody violence and strong language.

There are frequent scenes of action violence including shoot-outs and hand to hand fighting, sometimes with the use of knives. Bullet impacts include hits to the head, as well as impacts to other parts of bodies. Impacts commonly result in sprays of blood, however these are all relatively brief moments.

The film contains over fifty uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf***er'). There is also moderate language including the terms 'bitch' and 'hooker'.

There are occasional gory moments, including a procedure to remove a bullet from a man's chest which involves some poking around in the flesh before the bloody bullet is removed. In another scene there is some autopsy detail, including sight of an open chest cavity.

Scenes of hard drug use also feature, with white powder being snorted by a villain.

No-one younger than 15 may see a 15 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video or DVD.
