Review: Bronson’s best decade was the 1970s. Yet, I felt that this one wasn’t as good as his other films. Nothing of substance happened on here. I think the high points of the film were all the scenes with Bronson and Lalo Schifrin’s score. Oh and Jacqueline Bissett was really pretty. One cool thing is Jeff Goldblum has a part on this, he previously starred on Death Wish and Robert Englund, the man who would be Freddy Krueger had a small role. This film also has my favorite end credits screen ever!
