If your job involved getting repeatedly punched in the ribs by a muscled man known for making pulp out of faces with his fists, you wouldn't exactly show up for work with a smile. But for burly actor Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian, "Game of Thrones"), absorbing punishing punches from his idol Sylvester Stallone for their new movie Bullet to the Head was a dream come true.

Directed by Walter Hill (48 Hrs., The Warriors), the retro action flicks finds Stallone's old-school hitman reluctantly joining forces with a young detective (Sung Kang) after both of their partners die and it becomes clear that working together is the only way to get revenge on those responsible.

Momoa is one of the big, ruthless hurdles that stands in their way and he spoke to Cineplex about his menacing character Keegan, revealed that Stallone more than lived up to the myth and made a case for Bullet to the Head as a pretty good date movie.

Watch our 1-on-1 interview with Jason Momoa now. Bullet to the Head hits Cineplex theatres February 1.
