The Evil That Men Do (1984)
In yet another slick, formulaic Charles Bronson vengeance film (they would continue until the actor was in his mid-70s, still playing the morally insulted friend/husband/lover), Bronson is Holland, an assassin for hire who has just come out of retirement to finish off a Guatemalan thug by the name of Moloch (Joseph Maher). Moloch tortures and terrorizes the good guys and is protected by a misguided American government agency -- though nothing can stop Holland once he starts killing his way to the chief villain. No one except the wife of one of Moloch's victims -- and perhaps a few viewers now and again -- raises any questions about Holland's trail of corpses. … More

Critic Reviews for The Evil That Men Do
If you don't like excessive violence, then The Evil that Men Do most certainly won't appeal to you - it begins with a rather gruesome torture scene.
Pretty close to the worst flick Bronson ever made...and that's sayin' something.
Audience Reviews for The Evil That Men Do
The Evil That Men Do is a blistering thriller that stars Charles Bronson in yet another revenge themed storyline. The film doesn't reinvent the wheel, but for what it is, it's a very entertaining Bronson vehicle that still manages to deliver everything you'd expect from his work. Boasting riveting tension and action, The Evil That Men Do is one of the finer films that stars Charles Bronson. This is a well crafted movie that is quite underrated in my opinion. Bronson films were never fine cinematic achievements, but they were always thrilling, This one does stand out because, it differs slightly from many other works that Bronson has done, and it is a better film than his films that would appear in the late 80's, which would be more formulaic, and ridiculous. I've seen plenty of Bronson films, and The Evil That Men Do is one his finer works and features plenty of memorable moments for Bronson fans. I found the plot to be well structured, detailed and it kept you involved from start to finish. Bronson is a great actor and he always brought a unique and unforgettable presence to his films. The film is not without its flaws, but it most certainly is appealing to action fans and Bronson fans. If you're looking for a fun, entertaining, and always riveting movie, check this film out. This is an underrated film, and though it is not a classic, it still is a movie that you shouldn't pass up. With an interesting story, effective performances and top-notch action, The Evil That Men Do is highly entertaining from start to finish. Go into this one expecting a mindless and exhilarating slice of pure 80's action, and you're sure to enjoy it.More
Good thriller of a retired hitman lured from his idyllic island home to rub out some nasties. Charles Bronson worked with director J. Lee Thompson in several action-thriller movies from the late 1970s to late 1980s.More
