''BULLET TO THE HEAD: (R) Sylvester Stallone plays James, a hit man with morals (he never takes out women or children), but when killing people is your career, one is sure to develop enemies. After James kills a high-value target, the deceased's crew won't let him off easy. When his daughter is kidnapped, James is forced to face a dangerous ex-mercenary bent on revenge. He partners up with a D.C. detective whose partner was killed by the same people, and together they try to take down the deadly gang. With director Walter Hill on the bill, this action film should do well, even with the generic storyline.
WARM BODIES: (PG-13) In an interesting twist on the nation's apparent obsession with zombies, Warm Bodies'' poses the question of what would happen if a zombie could become human again. After Julie is saved from a zombie attack by another zombie, she's left wondering why he didn't just chow down on her, and begins to think there might be a flicker of humanity left in him. As they spend time together, R (the zombie) begins to fall in love with Julie, but no one around her seems to understand. As they fall in love, the zombie and human worlds try to tear them apart (literally!).
