TOP FIVE: Manliest Movies Of 2013

5) Bullet To The Head

This movie was torpedoed both financially and critically. But who cares about girlie-men critics and their conformist bullshit. This is about as old-school as you’re going to get. Directed by ManlyMovie favourite and buddy-cop specialist Walter Hill, 2013 was finally the year he teamed with Sylvester Stallone. It may have a weakness in Sung Kang, but it more than makes up for it in giving a brute force middle finger to what is expected of modern action comedy.

Fuck you, we’ll do our own thing, said Hill and Stallone (probably). A nice axe fight seals the deal, how often do we see one of those? Complete with non shaking-cam and conservative editing, it helped Bullet to the Head edge out Arnie’s The Last Stand.

    Solid list. I watched Bullet To the Head again on blu ray the other day and It really is a awesome movie. Great villain, hot chick and stallone is badass as usual. I personally really enjoyed The Last Stand and Expendables 2 as well.

    I’m surprised “Olympus Has Fallen” didn’t make the list.

      Ah, just re-read the title of the article. Now it makes sense 🙂

      Nah you’re right, I was a bit fucked in the head while writing that. I’d replace All Is Lost with it.

    Not too impressed by any of those. I am more sure than ever that Triple 9 is the best manly movie in years.Admitedly I can’t stomach most flics these days and don’t bother with too many new ones. I find todays action films either silly or trying so hard they almost come out gay. Triple 9 was a gift. A hard mean thriller. Surprised they found a cast of contemporary players man enough to act in it. Even nicer to see it made with a decent budget. Nothing on this list comes close.

      Anthony Mackie i think is becoming a pretty good actor. Casey Affleck is overlooked constantly cause of his brother who gets must of the attention, he was also great in “The Assasination of Jesse James” & “Out of Furnace”.
      I was surprised Kate Winslet was in the movie but she was awesome in it. Good movie. Think “Street Kings” was better. Only saw “Triple 9” once in the cinema..I’ll get the DVD when it comes out.

    It was a good year for manly movies, Escaple Plan and Assault on Wall Street were my favorites that year.

    I agree especially on Bullet to the Head and Escape Plan. Sad that those movies didn’t do better, but they were awesome in my book. The Last Stand also deserves a mention, Arnie was still a but rusty but the movie is a hell of a lot of fun.

    Good list, the only one I missed so far was Linc The Sink’s Wall Street revenge, I think I saw it was on Netflix though. Will watch it this weekend I hope. Out Of The Furnace was a cracking movie, Affleck younger stealing the show. He is cool in Gone Baby Gone also.

    edit: I watched Assault on Wall St today, damn good movie especially seeing as it’s low budget DTV. Very satisfying ending also and not what I was expecting when I sat down to watch. I figured he would just go on a random murder spree ending with suicide by cop. Not necessarily..
