4 June 2003 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

This movie is a Bronson classic in my book. My favorite scene is the pick-up ride when Majestyk and Chavez make their escape from the mob. I liked it the the pick-up made all those long jumps. In most drive scenes the pickup truck would definitely be torn to pieces, but not here. they must have bought a lot of them for the movie. This movie was packed with action, suspense, and also intrigue. This was absolutely one of Charles Bronson's best!
