What can I say? "Murphy's law" is definitely one of the best Charles Bronson thrillers of 1980's, there's no doubt about that. "10 to midnight" and "Messenger of death" are also worth watching (just to name two) but this might just be even better than them. Even though I'm a huge fan of the bloke I know the movie is pretty basic and not very surprising but that's Bronson for you. It's still damn exciting, funny, fresh and filled with great action and am I the only one who thinks Kathleen Wilhoite turns out to be rather cute during the film? Bronson is cool and tough as always and why wouldn't he be, after all the bloke is only 65 years young. J. Lee Thompson directed Bronson several times and this is quite likely among his greatest efforts. Legendary cop flick for all Charlie freaks.
