Trivia

This movie utilizes a storyline similar to that used in the classic Akira Kurosawa film Yojimbo (1961). 'RetroJunk' writes that Charles Bronson as Paul Kersey "methodically eliminates gang members, first from one side and then the other, until one gang's paranoia about the other gang causes the two competitors to engage in a major confrontation that impacts both groups."

Goofs

When Kay Lenz' character arrives at the hospital, she is wearing white boots. Then she runs into the emergency room and she is in tennis shoes. In the next shot, she's back in white boots. See more »

Bronson Lives
19 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My friends and I started watching Bronson movies for the pure humor. It wasn't long after the fact that I found Bronson to one a biggest bad a$$es in movies. In This movie he is well over sixty and he still takes down three gangs and an arcade.My Grandpa can't move much let alone blow people up with a wine bottle bomb. SO if you want to laugh at some really bad acting, but at the same time see a legend at work and have a chance to be exposed to the man know as Bronson. I think this is a good movie to start with. Start here and work your way back. You will find your way to some great movies. My favorite is Once Upon A Time In The West or Hardtimes.
