Charles Bronson enjoyed one of the longest movie careers of any of his contemporaries. Although he has had his detractors, his appeal has reached across the generations , from westerns to war films to cop/vigilante films.
All hell literally breaks loose here as Bronson tries to save the day.
In this film, Bronson begins to gravitate toward the kind of action film that he perfected in the 70's and beyond. His tough, heroic GI faced with a tough & unusual mission is very well acted. Although the script was nothing spectacular, the film is worth a look to see a legendary star on the brink of his memorable tough-guy career.
