Bronson's Best Action Film, Period.
9 July 2003 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This movie is simply Bronson's finest work. While I concede that the movie is formulaic and predictable, his acting is top-notch, as is the acting of the supporting cast. The premise is also exciting and downright cool: Bronson as a watermelon farmer who gets screwed by the man for protecting his property and then gets screwed when he attempts to secure his freedom via a poorly conceived plan. I can see him farming anything, but not watermelons (or maybe blueberries). Rent this movie along with The Mechanic, and you'll see Bronson in 2 of his finest action films. You definitely won't be disappointed.
