In Los Angeles, the rookie Detective Paul McAnn teams up with the veteran Detective Leo Kessler to investigate the murder of Betty Johnson and her boyfriend that were stabbed by a naked serial-killer in a park. Detective Kessler recognizes the victim, who lived in the same neighborhood many years ago and childhood friend of his daughter Laurie Kessler. The killer Warren Stacy goes to the funeral and overhears Betty's father telling Detective Kessler that his daughter had a diary. Warren breaks in Betty's apartment and stabs and kills her roommate Karen Smalley trying to find the diary. But Karen had already delivered the journal to Detective Kessler. Leo Kessler is sure that Warren is the serial-killer and her plants a false evidence in his apartment. However, Warren's defense lawyer presses Detective McAnn accusing him of perjury and Warren is released. Now the Warren is stalking Laurie to revenge against her father.

The Best Charles Bronson Movie Ever
13 April 2004 | by quixotism-9See all my reviews

Sure, some will throw they're vote to Death Wish or Telefon, but 10 to Midnight provides such a rich tapestry of Bronson cop movie cliches that to my mind it is all one need see.

The film has minimal Bronson action, the best Bronson lines (choice sample You know what this is for, Warren? It's for JERKING OFF! and moves along at a clip.

Another of those fascist post-Dirty Harry cop roles where the viewers' is sealed early as the movie goes to great lengths to make it clear that the killer is guilty even before we see Bronson.

Fantastic Bronson stuff.
