    The Only Good Movie that Charles Bronson (Battle of the Bulge, Jubal) and Michael Winner (I'll Never Forget What's'isname, Lawman) collaboration after Death Wish it's a slow Paced but effective Thriller

    Boring from beginning to end unless you like lots of gratuitous explosions. Good Bronson films include Death Hunt and Act of Vengeance.

    This movie starts off promising an interesting series of assassinations made to look like accidents, but ends up just being another run-of-the-mill 70's action movie. It lags almost immediately and by the time it finally gets back around to the action it's too little too late. It's decent enough action, but the plot detours are so bizarre and unrelated to anything else that when it finally gets around so its sort-of-twist the momentum is lacking. Closest comparison: It's like James Bond with the soul of Once Upon a Time in the West. Setting: Adventure Plot: Action Tone: Espionage

    I have always found that the best Bronson movies are the ones in which he speaks the least. Unfortunately, he speaks too much in this movie. The movie just drags along, with nothing going on for long periods of time, and for no purpose other than using up film. The ending is cheesy, unimaginative and feels like someone made up on the last day of shooting.

    This movie gave birth to a genre that endures today , not just in movies , but tv to video game. It clunkish but has all the elements that have been developed over the years

    Michael Winner, the director, with not much of a story to go with here (it's a very short story in truth) understandably tries to pad it out with the minutiae of a professional assassin plotting out a job, which really adds nada to the proceedings, and so it's slow going. Which makes this a film mostly for Charles Bronson or Jan-Michael Vincent fans. Jill Ireland, though pretty, is wasted. And Keenan Wynn, a supporting player, is left with the poor job of trying to carry the project.

    An ok classical, action, & suspense film about a hit-man eventually teaching his speciality to his new accomplice.
