The character that Bronson plays in this movie is a variation on his vigilante screen persona derived from his Death Wish (1974) movie success. Taglines for this film's movie poster's read: "In the execution of justice there is no executioner like BRONSON" and "Most criminals answer to the law. The world's most savage executioner must answer to Bronson." See more »

Charles Bronson plays a retired hit man named Holland who is recruited to take out an evil "doctor" named Clement Molloch who works as a torturer for various governments to suppress/discourage dissidents. When an old friend of Holland's becomes a victim of Molloch, he goes undercover as a married man to infiltrate Molloch's security team, thus leaving him vulnerable to attack.
Unpleasant film is difficult to sit through, though Bronson is good, and film reasonably intelligent and intriguing, it eventually becomes too sordid and routine, though has a good "Dr. Moreau" type ending, that isn't enough to save it.
