Revenge never gets old.
When Bonomo meets Kwon in the bar for the first time, Bonomo fills up his glass with his favorite 2 Bullet bourbon. He then drinks about half of the glass. While talking to Kwon he brings the glass back up to his mouth for another drink and the glass is full again.

Near the end, Bonomo meets Kwon in a bar and he is drinking his 2 Bullets bourbon again. When they finish talking, Bonomo is shown tilting his glass all the way back to empty the glass. But when he puts the glass on the bar, we clearly see a small amount of bourbon left in the glass.

Revealing Mistakes
When Kwon is recording the conversation of the bad guys talking, the cellphone display shows that it is charging.
Producer Joel Silver's contract with Warner Bros. - who were distributing the picture - was about to come to an end when Bullet to the Head was in post-production. The relationship between the studio and Silver had deteriorated after Silver accused Warner of botching the release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011).

Sylvester Stallone's character is named James "Jimmy Bobo" Bonomo. In Oscar (1991), Stallone's character talked about his first job, working for James "Jumpin' Jimmy" Bonomo. In both movies, Stallone has a daughter named Lisa, and both films include hitmen as central characters.

Thomas Jane was brought into the project by original director Wayne Kramer. When Kramer left the project, Jane suggested Sylvester Stallone to hire Walter Hill. After Hill took over directorial duties, Joel Silver came on board the project and fired Jane because he wanted an ethnic guy for the other lead role. Sung Kang was subsequently cast.

Christian Slater's first major role in an theatrical film in eight years since Alone in the Dark (2005).

The snap shots of Jimmy Bobo are photos of a young Sylvester Stallone.

Both Sylvester Stallone and director Walter Hill performed uncredited re-writes on the screenplay.

The red automatic knife is a Microtech Halo.

Not screened in advance for critics.

Walter Hill's first film since Undisputed (2002), 10 years earlier.

Wayne Kramer was originally hired to direct in February 2011. After clashing with Stallone over the tone of the film, he left the production and was replaced by Walter Hill on April 11, 2011.

When In the car on the way to the party in search of Baptiste, Sung says to Stallone "You were discharged early with no benefits" one of the pictures on the phone are of Stallone as John Rambo in First Blood.
