Two words: Bronson rules
27 May 2004 | by (Järvenpää, Finland) – See all my reviews

Why do I love Charles Bronson when he is at his best? "Mr. Majestyk" alone gives about 103 minutes of good reason to do so. It's an excellent proof that Bronson really was the biggest action stars of cinema history and alongside with terrific classics like "Once upon a time in the west", "The Mechanic" and "Death wish" this is the film Bronson lovers will remember him by.

I love everything about this movie. I love the inventive action scenes, silly yet exciting story, the amusing baddies, Charles Bernstein's cool score and 53 year old Bronson's irresistible performance as the toughest melon farmer the world has ever seen. If you call yourself a Bronson fan and you haven't seen this you have to do something about it immediately or you can't watch yourself in a mirror.
