This picture represents one of a handful of films released during the 1980s that had the word Border forming part of the title and examining immigration across the Mexico-USA border, many dealing with issues relating to corruption, profiteering, border protection and illegal immigration. The movies included The Border (1982), Borderline (1980), Border Heat (aka Deadly Stranger (1990)), Border Radio (1987) and Border Cop (1980) (aka The Blood Barrier aka The Border aka The Border, USA).

This was the third turkey in a row for Charles Bronson, after "The White Buffalo" and "Love and Bullets". It's so utterly, extraordinarily dull that you may not quite make to the end. There is little plot, no action, no emotion, no humor and generally nothing to engage your interest in any way; even the supporting characters are colorless. The previous reviewer was right: don't bother. (*1/2)
