This picture was made and released about five years after its source Rex Burns novel 'The Avenging Angel' was first published in 1983. This movie has also been known under the similar title of 'Avenging Angels'. See more »
During the car chase, Smith's car is on the inside of one of the tankers on the first corner out of the tunnel, but in the next shot it's back in the middle of both tankers. See more »
I'll watch anything with Charles Bronson, but this was definitely stretching things. Bronson is fine but the film is a mess, after a pretty solid start. Perhaps it was underbudgeted. Perhaps it was improperly edited. Who knows? I read here about the possibility of the director J. Lee Thompson falling ill, but somehow I suspect that rarely stops a movie from being finished -- by the second unit director, the director of photography and sometimes even the star. Anyhow, see it for Bronson and the first 10 minutes or so. I always like J. Lee Thompson, even when he was directing crap.
