Excellent police drama
14 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

M-SQUAD - The Fight Charles Bronson guest stars as an up an coming 28 and 0 boxer with a problem. While relaxing in his dressing room after disposing of his last opponent, a man bursts in, pulls a gun, and takes a shot. The shot misses and the man is tackled to the floor and disarmed. It is his latest opponent's manager. The man is upset that his fighter has just dropped dead in the other dressing room. He blames Bronson for the fighter's death.

The police are called and arrest the manager. Bronson refuses to press charges and the man is released. Lee Marvin, as Police detective Frank Ballinger is assigned to keep an eye on Bronson. Bronson's training for his next fight is interrupted when a bomb is found in his gym locker. Then his dog is killed. Next a few threatening notes are slipped under his door while a bullet comes through the window of Bronson's apartment.

The deeper Marvin digs the more suspects he comes up with. Is it the other manager still seeking revenge? Is it Bronson's wife who has just filed for divorce? Or the mob trying to influence the betting odds? Could it be a publicity stunt by Bronson's own camp.

It is now the night of Bronson's next fight and he is getting pummelled. Marvin observes one of the corner men switching water bottles and grabs him up for a quick talk. A little arm twisting and the fellow gives up that the water bottle is spiked. After getting some fresh water Bronson rebounds and delivers a knockout. A little more of the old 3rd degree and Marvin discovers that the corner man had placed a large wager against Bronson. All the rest had been a ploy to throw Bronson off his game.

Neatly put together police drama.
