It’s not often you see Asian American actors, especially men, playing strong roles. So when one comes around, its a reason for anticipation. Here’s hoping Bullet in the Head starring Sylvestor Stallone and Sung Kang is that Hollywood breakthrough movie we’ve been hoping for.
Kang plays Washington D.C. detective Taylor Kwon who teams with hitman Jimmy Bobo (Stallone) to track down the killer of their respective partners. The movie debuts in the United States this Friday.
“My character figures out that there’s a connection between the deaths of our former partners,” said Kang to GMA News. Taylor lives by this real rigid code of honor and a moral integrity that’s been ingrained in him. He wants the entity behind the hits, so he’s willing to team up with Jimmy to chase down the bad guys, even though he knows Jimmy is a criminal himself.”
