Bronson Is Great, the Movie Is Alright
21 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A brutal Los Angeles police Lt. (Charles Bronson) is determined to bust up an organization that forces underage girls into prostitution.

The movie marks the ninth and final collaboration between Bronson and director J. Lee Thompson. Beginning with the movie "St. Ives" in 1976, their partnership spanned nearly thirteen years. I am sad to say they did not end on a high note.

Although there are good parts of the film, it lacks an overall punch. The opening scene, busting in on a prostitute and her john, that grabs your attention. But then it becomes a film that tends to stereotypically anti-Japanese. I'm sad to see Bronson's character suddenly dislike all Japanese because of an incident with his daughter.
