"You make sounds like you're a mean little ass-kicker... only I ain't convinced. You keep talking and I'm gonna take your head off. "
21 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

This was a very hit-and-miss movie. I personally enjoyed it, but I can see why people wouldn't be so interested.

The plot is simple but at the same time, hard to fully understand. A melon farmer named Vince Majestyk (Charles Bronson) is going about his business until one day, a smart-mouth gangster wannabe named Bobby Kopas (Paul Koslo) shows up and threatens Majestyk and whatnot. Majestyk sends him packing and soon lands in more trouble and has a run-in with a mafia hit-man named Frank Renda (Al Lettieri). Renda and Bobby soon form an alliance and repeatedly make Majestyk's life hell.

Now, as far as acting goes, this one was great. The characters were either liked or hated. And sometimes, they were both.

Charles Bronson was most definitely the thing that made this movie great. His lines, attitude, and his way of serving justice were just excellent.

Over all, good movie for some, not so much for others. I'm on the side that likes this movie.

8/10.
