Bronson and Nancy drive their pickup truck many miles at high speeds through dusty roads, pot-holes, heavy brush, and several streams. They also crash through at least one fence and purposely slam into the car carrying the mob men. Yet after all this, the pickup is spotless and has absolutely no scratches, dents, or other damage.

Bronson's Best Action Film, Period.
9 July 2003 | by actionproSee all my reviews

This movie is simply Bronson's finest work. While I concede that the movie is formulaic and predictable, his acting is top-notch, as is the acting of the supporting cast. The premise is also exciting and downright cool: Bronson as a watermelon farmer who gets screwed by the man for protecting his property and then gets screwed when he attempts to secure his freedom via a poorly conceived plan. I can see him farming anything, but not watermelons (or maybe blueberries). Rent this movie along with The Mechanic, and you'll see Bronson in 2 of his finest action films. You definitely won't be disappointed.
