Storyline

Joe Martin, a quiet American, lives a quiet life in the South of France renting boats to tourists. He is happily married to Fabienne and has a twelve-year-old daughter named Michèle. But the quiet man has a past: ten years before, Joe (then Moran) had escaped with four other convicts, among whom the sadistic ex-mercenary Katanga. Seeing the latter brutally kill an M. P., Joe had abandoned his accomplices and left with the car. One night, Captain Ross, Katanga, Whitey and Fausto re-appear.. Written by Guy Bellinger

Captain Ross: This is a stomach wound; stomach wounds bleed internally.
Katanga: I know what a stomach wound is!
Captain Ross: Do you know how many pints of blood a man has? He has ten pints, and mine's pumpin' out, slowly but steadily, at an estimated rate of four pints per hour. Therefore, in another hour, I will have lost consciousness and finally "check out."

Bronson and his boat
17 July 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Cold Sweat is a Charles Bronson film done at the cusp of his career change when he was transitioning from character supporting player to rugged leading man. As the Bronson phenomenon was taking off James Mason who plays one of several villains in the film said he was assured of a good pay day by appearing in a Bronson film in support.

Bronson is a Hemingway type of character American expatriate in Southern France making a living as a charter boat captain supporting his wife Liv Ullman and stepdaughter Yannick Delulle. Bronson's been keeping secrets from Ullman, she doesn't know he's an ex-con who served time in military prison and is wanted by the West German police for his part in the killing of one of their police. Not that he did the deed in fact he broke from his gang when it happened. Still he's guilty because he's associated with those that did it.

Which includes James Mason, Michel Constantin, Luigi Pistilli, and Jean Topart. They've looked him up as they want him and his boat as part of another deal. And they hold Ullman and Delulle hostage.

The film also features Jill Ireland who was Bronson's real life wife and mistress to James Mason in Cold Sweat. She plays a spaced out airhead heiress who takes up with Mason because it's groovy. Jill's probably digging Mason's Tennessee accent, the same one he used a few years later in Mandingo.

Cold Sweat is a routine action adventure programmer. It's all right but Charles Bronson would give us better films in the 70s and 80s.
