Violent City is one of the best Charles Bronson films. Bronson plays Jeff a hitman who is betrayed and left for dead. Needless to say it takes more than a few bullits to keep him down and he is soon seeking revenge on the man who shot him. However this is only the beginning of the plot. I won't go into any more plot detail and ruin your enjoyment of this film. The cast is top notch and includes Bronson's wife Jill Ireland and Telly Savalas (Kojak, On Her Majesty's Secret Service) as the mob boss. There is also a very good score by Ennio Morricone who scored a number of Italian Giallo films.
Blue Underground have done a fantastic job remastering the print and presenting it fully uncut. Although most of the film is in English language some scenes which were omitted from English language prints are in Italian language (they were never dubbed into English) but this does not spoil the film. These scenes are subtitled in English. The print is full 2.35 widescreen and is up to Blue Undergrounds usual high standard. The special features include an interview with Director Sergio Sollima who also co wrote the film, a trailer and a poster and still gallery. The dvd is region 0 coded and should work on most dvd players.
If you are a fan on Bronson then this Blue Underground release is the one to buy as it puts the other dvd releases of this film to shame. Thank you for reading my review.
