Critic Reviews for Cold Sweat

All Critics (2)

  • It comes across as almost a dry run [to Death Wish], but more intelligent, humane and European while still delivering plenty of violence and thrills.

  • Despite a Richard Matheson novel as its source and a three-time 007 director at its helm (Terence Young), it's a threadbare affair, with only Bronson's lively performance keeping it afloat.

Audience Reviews for Cold Sweat

    A Charles Bronson thriller. The old gang of thugs, er, hoodlums, er, old buds, er, ex-cons, er, "honey, these are the guys I used to run with" show up and wanna see how Charlie's doing in the straight life. They also wanna see his 12-year-old daughter too. What follows next is some of the usual bust-it-up Bronson fans have come to expect and love, including a nice car chase down some curvy mountain roads over in Europe. It's better than you thought. Still, what's Liv Ullman doing in this? And James Mason's Southern accent will make you cry it's soooo bad.
