Default Replacing head gasket

I have all my head bolts out (10) but I cannot get the head to budge. I have tapped it with a rubber mallet with no luck. Any ideas? It is a 2003, 2.0L.

hit it harder.
Crank it round a few times by hand, if it has good comp it should pop.

Lastly, A big no-no, but if you have a wide flat pry bar you can *gently* hammer it in and lever to break the seal.
