Police Inspector Paul Fein (Bronson) copes with family troubles while also dealing with the possibility of advancement to police chief. Meanwhile, his son (Joe Penny) is investigating the murder of a banker.
Originally filming was to begin fall 1984, with Don Jakoby listed as the screenwriter, although it was reported that principal photography would begin 18 Mar 1985, in New York City, and put rumors to rest that Chuck Norris would take on the starring role. Charles Bronson was reportedly unhappy with scripts that Cannon presented to him, and threatened to drop out of the production. Both parties finally agreed on a script by Jakoby. However, Jakoby's name does not appear in the film credits. Final screenwriting credits went to Michael Edmonds. See more »

Oh my word!! I have never seen a film so lacking in any kind of moral judgement or consideration for anything other than the death of the scum! Michael Winner here makes a valid observation of human desires in displaying a gung-ho troth world of deep and damaged execution. Not only does he spoon feed us with utter hell on earth seen through the face of the moustached Bronson, but he also shows us the spoon he's feeding us with and says "look at what your watching now look at your self and ask the question: Are you enjoying this?" And even though you'll tell yourself NO IT CAN'T BE!!!! You'll know that deep down inside you'll know...it's a masterpiece
