Charles Bronson plays a tough melon farmer called Vincent Majestyc, a former US Ranger in Vietnam. Majestyc who has already hired a crew to pick his one hundred and sixty acres of melons, is forced by a 'cowboy' to use his crew which are cheaper. However Majestyc is not used to being pushed around and assalts the man with a shotgun, and later ends up in jail on assalt charges.
While in jail he meets Frank, a tough Mafia hitman, who has planned an attack on a bus that the prisoners are traveling on so that he can escape. However Majestyc kidnaps Frank and takes him to a hunting cabin in the woods, and tries to make a deal with the cops, that if he gives them Frank, they will drop the assalt charges. They agree and Majestyc's attemps to take him down to the 'cop-shop' are interupted by a woman who has come to rescue Frank.
Now free, Frank swears to kill Majestyc and gets the 'cowboy' to drop the assalt charges so that Majestyc will go back to his melon farm, and become a 'sitting duck'. However what Frank doesn't know is that Majestyc is a Vietnam vet and when his melons are trashed, his friends legs broken, and his picking crew run off the land, he is forced to put his military training back into use, and defend his land, his friends, and most of all his own life.
Charles Bronson, as always is perfect for this type of role and he really does deliver in this film, playing a melon farmer who only wants to get his crop in, but when pushed to the limit, will do everything he can to defend himself and his farm.Read more ›
