Bob bye Charlie, a departure flick, I don't forbid you to see
30 April 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

You can't help loving this B film, that delves into fetishes, child perversion, abduction, and forbidden vices. I must say the scene with Bronson confessing to his priest/psychologist, played by the wonderful Bill Mckinney, I couldn't stop from grinning a tad. I know why. It's stereotypical Bronsoniitis, via J Lee Thompson, as we've seen many of Charlie's other Golan Globus flicks. It too had me wondering, does Charlie really enjoy this, or how is he on this, with how his career's plummeted. Another scene, that brought stereotypical vibes back, had him going off, publicly at Asians, making a stand, claiming, "They think they own the joint, goddamn cars, whatever". To race haters out there who see this, later on in the movie they could have a change of heart as does Charlie. Lately Charlie, has had a hard on for busting this sleazy pimp, Duke, (Fernandez) who runs a stable of young girls for perverted clientele. His latest beauty is an Asian schoolgirl who can't be more than thirteen, who he discreetly abducted from a private school, and groomed quick, courtesy of hishelp. Kinjite has some cheeky, saucy scenes, others, repulsive ones, like when the girl goes with an old guy in a limo, or later when she's taken to an apartment to fuel the hunger for a lonely female paedophile. We're off to a great start with Charlie and the boys, raiding a hotel room, busting up a trick, who has a big briefcase of kinky stuff, about to go to work on sexy Eggert's rear end. As having been with Duke, she even warns him later on that's his apartment is about to be raided. Now the forced Rolex swallowing watch scene, I must say, left me with a bit of a sore throat, this was a great stand out, "Are you kidding me" scene. Obviously Charlie wasn't. Although the end of Kinjite isn't all roses, as to some of the characters fates, what we have here is some really sleazy addictive B grade product. The sexy mistress in blue, with the Asian businessman, the father of the Asian daughter who's taken, I must say had nice hooters. This Asian guy presented a little shock revelation and unease to how he carried himself. But of course it's Charlie who carries the movie, where I wouldn't say this is the best departure out of Golan Globus ville, but it is addictively entertaining and I said before, stereotypically Charlie.
