Top detective Lou Torrey is transferred to Los Angeles and uncovers a plot by a Sicilian mafioso to use Vietnam War veterans to murder all his enemies in a rerun of the "Sicilian Vespers" when the previous generation of Sicilian mafiosi were all killed on a single day. Torrey gets various clues that something big is about to happen, but will he discover what is planned before the big day?Written by

When Torrey's car bounces across the railroad tracks during the chase scene, the front left suspension apparently breaks because the wheel is cocked at an odd angle. After the next cut, the wheel is straight again and the car is able to continue the chase. See more »
This is an enjoyable time waster. And to paraphrase Bronson himself (from the film), "(it) has its' gaudy moments." There is some memorable dialogue and where else can you see Papa Walton (Ralph Waite) playing a racist detective in a series of outdated cheap suits? The mob characters are cliches and the plot is somewhat farfetched. But there are worse things to waste 90 minutes on. The bottom line: THE STONE KILLER isn't one of Hollywood's greatest films, it certainly isn't the worst. It's Bronson.
