Movie Info

Years ago, police detective Jack Murphy (Charles Bronson) put murderer Joan Freeman (Carrie Snodgress) behind bars. But, when Freeman is released, she wreaks havoc upon Murphy's life. Freeman kills his ex-wife and other police officers, framing Murphy for her crimes. After he's arrested, the police handcuff Murphy to a thief, Arabella McGee (Kathleen Wilhoite). Still attached to Arabella, Murphy breaks out of jail, and the duo work together to find the real killer.

Audience Reviews for Murphy's Law

  • Nov 15, 2013
    Murphy's Law is a well crafted action film that stars Charles Bronson. The story is engaging and thrilling, and the acting is quite good. If you enjoy Bronson films, then this is the film for you. Murphy's Law is high octane excitement from start to finish, and director, who has work with Charles Bronson on other films, crafts this picture with flair and intensity. Featuring intense action, and pure Bronson carnage, Murphy's Law is a great film and a definite genre classic. Of course it's imperfect in some areas, but that's to be expected from low budget actioners such as this. Despite its flaws, it's a highly entertaining film worth seeing if you enjoy these films. This is a well structured movie that boasts good performances, effective action sequences and memorable, tense moments. Murphy's Law is not original, but it more than makes up for it with Charles Bronson in the lead role. The cat and mouse game works due to a good script and like I said is nothing new, but it doesn't really matter because Murphy's Law is an action packed ride that will satisfy any viewers looking for an effective action film. These low budget action flicks are always fun and with Bronson in the lead you're assured a standout feature that delivers the thrills from one of Hollywood's greatest tough guys. Murphy's Law borrows from Dirty Harry, but the film manages to be quite different. Murphy's Law is one of those action films that you simply need to shut your mind off to enjoy. Those looking for popcorn action thrills will certainly this. However for those expecting something more, you'll be disappointed. This is a Bronson flick, and with being said, you can expect the typical formula that comes with it, good story, tense, thrilling brutal action, and memorable on-screen bad ass moments that makes Bronson such an icon. Despite its flaws, Murphy's Law is worth seeing, and I find it to be underrated. Like I said, it's a classic action flick in Bronson's filmography, and diehard fans of his work will love it like I did.

Action, Comedy, Suspense, This movie had it all.I also LOVED Kathleen Wilhoite as the female street punk who always had an insulting name for everybody.If your'e a fan of Charles Bronson like I am this is 1 of his best & I suggest you check out Murphy's Law if you haven't already

    Bronson has to take out the trash, but this time it's female trash out to destroy his life. This nutbar (you have to be crazy to mess with Bronson) frames Chuck for some murders and he has to break out of jail with an unfunny, yet hillarious, female punk in tow. For some reason Bronson takes a shine to her, and finally confronts the psycho chick. I can't go on, I don't want to spoil who wins for those who haven't watched it, but I'll give you a hint. Bronson kicks ass!

    Charles Bronson's a cop who is being framed by a psycho he once put away. Much shooting and shouting.
