You make sounds like you're an ass kicker; only, I'm not concerned.
Vince Majestyk is a man with a troubled past that just wants to settle down on his farm and grow and sell melons; however, the locals want him to overpay for resources and utilize their selected employees. When Vince refuses he is locked up and placed in prison. During his prison sentence he is caught in the middle of a jail escape of a highly sought after assassin. Vince uses this opportunity to capture the assassin and barter to have his charges reduced. In doing so, Vince pisses off the assassin and may become his next victim.

Richard Fleischer, director of Conan the Destroyer, Red Sonja, Mandingo, Amityville 3-D, Dr. Dolittle (1967), Tora Tora Tora, See No Evil (1971), and 20000 Leagues under the Sea (1954), delivers Mr. Majestyk. The storyline for this picture is pretty straightforward for the action genre and reminded me of Cobra with Stallone. The acting was very good for the genre and the cast includes Charles Bronson, Linda Cristal, Al Lettieri, and Paul Koslo.

We are huge Charles Bronson fans and my wife found this picture while looking for movies to DVR. Bronson is fairly solid in this picture but his villain is just okay and a bit of a putz. This film is just above average for the genre but nothing special overall. I do recommend catching this film if you are a fan of the genre but it will not be the best Bronson picture you ever see.
