Who cares about the "legal reality" (what legal reality is there in this world anyway?) this is a great movie. The plot is very well written because it unfolds. It was no srurpise to me when I found out that Elmore Leonard wrote the script.

Despite a corny segment in which Bronson mourns over the loss of some water lemons (he's a lemon farmer you see) it really is a great piece of movie making. Unpretentious and a lot of fun.


8/10

This has always been a favorite of mine regarding Charles Bronson. It has quite the cult following as well. I've always loved the little homage from Quentin Tarantino in his writing for "True Romance" which was delivered by Gary Oldman.

Great Bronson vehicle. His version of WALKING TALL (1973). Never heard Watermelons called water lemons before. Cheesy
