One of the great movie tough guys was Charles Bronson. Active in film for nearly fifty years, he amassed a ton of kick-ass movies...and some that were not so great. Here's a cross-section of the good, the not so good, and the crappy.
Now for the last three Death Wish movies. The first one is a gritty classic and the second is one of the sleaziest, most unpleasant cinematic experiences I have ever had the misfortune to have. Granted, once you get past the first twenty minutes it's not that bad but who wants to watch a movie that way?
The Agony Booth and for some reason, it's my favorite of the sequels. It's more fun than the second and third movies which tended to get a little too nasty and it also benefits from a hilarious turn from John P. Ryan. It's not as funny a role as his part in Avenging Force but he's always fun to watch. It's a fun romp that is one of the better late-era Cannon films.
That about wraps things up. Until next time...
