4.0 out of 5 stars Solid as a rock., 17 Dec 2013
This review is from: The Stone Killer (Charles Bronson) [DVD] (DVD)
After being shipped out to Los Angeles for his heavy handed tactic of shooting first and asking questions sometime after lunch the next day, Detective Lou Torrey (Bronson), ends up back on his old stomping ground, as he attempts to unearth a future plot involving the multiple assassinations of several underworld figures. But will Torrey be able to stop the coup d'etat before a full on gang war ensues..

Very solid 'Dirty Harry' inspired tough cop thriller from the directorial eye of Michael Winner. Which as expected turns out to be a rather fascist, right winged action thriller, that lays on the violence thick and fast, whilst Bronson uses all the lack of emotion required to make this a sure fire hit. To fans of Bronson this is almost right up there with some of his best stuff, to anyone else, it's a fun enough seventies cop/chase thriller that will keep the late night audiences comfy and happy with the unfolding action.
Two major highlights being a really good Roy Budd score and an at times, hilarious screenplay by Wilson, during which, quite how Bronson shows so little emotion whilst delivering some of his lines is anybody's guess, because he must have had some fun saying them. With the added cherry being that it's always good to see faces like Koslo, Balsam and Tyner.

Certainly of it's era but that's no bad thing by any means.
The sony disc is sharp enough but no extras.
4.25/5
