Storyline

It's a dystopian future in Brüteville City, where crime is running rampant due to a gangland styled war between rival mob bosses Johann Tannhauser and Racken. Gunter Vogler and Martine Mahler are two of Tannhauser's hit people. Sociopath Gunter kills for killing's sake. Martine, who is Tannhauser's girlfriend, is having an affair with Gunter. In a robbery gone wrong, Gunter is shot in the face and captured by the police. After recuperating, Gunter is convinced by Police Commissioner Eva Braden to work for them against Tannhauser, when she shows him that Martine was the one who purposefully shot him, probably on Tannhauser's orders. What is as distasteful to Gunter is that the face of one of the police detectives he killed in the botched robbery is transplanted onto him as part of his reconstructive surgery. Now masquerading as that detective, Gunter is partnered with overly sensitive Lt. Karl Hagerman, who cannot stomach that he is now working side by side with the man who killed his ...

Brilliant and captivating
29 January 2016 | by marchousewrightSee all my reviews

BULLET TO THE FACE by Alan Spencer is a work of art, brilliantly written, and magnificently cast. I'm looking forward to more by Mr. Spencer as I grew up watching Sledgehammer, and am equally entertained by his recent work!!! I can't think of any series I can watch over, and over, but this one I can watch a Thousand times and still enjoy it. I have gone as far as to show clips of Bullet to an old friend who has been a main stream movie producer in Hollywood for over Thirty Years, and he agrees Alan Spencer has an incredible talent. I can watch Bullet over, and over so in all this being said I not only applaud the creative talents of Mr. Spencer, but impatiently await the release of his next project.
