In this pulse-pounding political thriller, action-superstar - the late - Charles Bronson is at his rugged best as a man on a mission to protect the First Lady from ruthless assassins who'll stop at nothing to kill her!

Thankfully the last of Charles Bronson's co-starring vehicles with Jill Ireland, 1987's Assassination feels a bit like a second stab at Love and Bullets but with Bronson's cop now a secret service agent and Ireland's airheaded gangster's moll he's protecting from hitmen now the deeply unpleasant First Lady who's being targeted by a terrorist-for-hire to stop her ruining her husband's re-election prospects. It's all rather silly stuff even at a rushed 86 minutes - after an exploding motorcycle and a massive explosion destroying her yacht, Ireland still doesn't think someone wants to kill her - and director Peter Hunt's a long way from the glory days of OHMSS here (even his legendary editing skills can't hide the worst piece of stunt doubling of the 80s, where Bronson is suddenly replaced on an exploding motorbike by a Lee Horsley lookalike), but a more relaxed Bronson seems a bit more involved in proceedings than in most of his 80s films and shows a pleasingly light touch in his scenes with Jan Gan Boyd. Unnecessary, but a painless timefiller if you're in an undemanding mood.

No extras on the PAL DVD, but the US NTSC disc does include a brief trailer.

Ah The Cannon group, the epitome of eighties production companies. Their movie are like cheese on toast, really good throwaway comfort, but too much can be very bad for you, so one every now and again is a must, especially when there go to guy Bronson is involved.

This is one of his more poorer efforts though, not quite reaching Messenger Of Death risibility, but nowhere near as over the top as Kinjite, or Murphys Law, this film would have definitely benefited from being R-rated, and a little more action packed.

So the film consists mostly of Jill Ireland making Bronsons life a misery (life imitating art?), by calling him names, running away from him every chance she has, and ignoring the fact that almost everybody who isn't wearing a suit wants to kill her.

And then there's the rest of the film, the Cannon goodness, featuring Bronson on a machine gun wielding Bike,mourning into Danny Trejo when he jumps of and firing a rocket launcher.............a rocket launcher, into a barn.

The guy here is 60+, and he's still running around like someone half his age.

The set pieces are splendidly over the top, and you know you are watching terrific trash, when you see Bronson throw an empty machine in an hilarious way at a man in a wet suit.

He two leads aside, the acting is woeful, the White House exterior looks like a chain restaurant, and it all ends with a man falling out of a window.

Absolute rubbish, but by George, it's fun while it lasts

Bronson at his best, but then was he any different. This is a good action movie and a good developing plot throughout. Several different leads fool the viewer as to who the assassin works for and one wonders at a love trist developing between protector (Charles Bronson) and protected (Jill Ireland). Buy it - you won't be disappointed.

I totally can't agree with the first reviewer since really liked this film quite a lot. Nice that someone gave Bronson the chance in the late 80s NOT to be Mr. Vigilante.
Bronson is cool and charismatic as ever, and I always liked Jill Ireland.
ASSASSINATION might not win an award for originality and not even for best script, but it is entertaining and not as violent as his previous films have been.

Fair but not to Bronson's usual standards.
