Mr. Majestyk? Totally Awesome.

    They pissed him off, over and over.  Treated unfairly by the cops, and pestered by local red necks, Bronson finally gets pushed over the edge when they unleash machine guns on his watermelons…yup.
This movie was totally awesome and is yet another Bronson movie worth watching.  Mr. Majestyk is a watermelon farmer, and of course a Vietnam vet.  That always seems to be the case.  Whenever a good person kicks the asses of criminals and scum bags, that hero always has a background in NAM.  This movie starts off setting the stage for Bronson defending migrant workers, with local rednecks trying to force him to use white laborers which eventually leads to him kicking someone’s ass and getting into trouble with the law.  Without giving away spoilers, Bronson gets involved with another guy who is also in trouble with the law, only this guy is a royal piece of garbage and a famous hitman who has a history of getting off on all charges.
This movie was pretty entertaining and there wasn’t a dull moment.  Great movie to watch on a rainy day and WAY better then “No Retreat No Surrender 2: Raging Thunder”.

Action Film Top 100: Mr. Majestyk

    The next film on the list that I’m watching is “Mr. Majestyk” starring the legendary Charles Bronson.
The description of the film is as follows:

“Cinema’s most rugged tough guy, Charles Bronson, threads his uncompromising coolness through a tight weave of car chases, shootouts and bare-knuckle brawling in this gritty, forceful action film (LA Herald-Examiner)! Bronson stars as Majestyk, an ex-con and Vietnam vet whose efforts to run a farm are thwarted by narrow-minded locals and corrupt cops. But when a Mafia hitman (Al Lettieri) destroys Majestyk’s crop, the farmer’s fuse is finally blown. With his rifle in hand and his girlfriend (Linda Cristal) at the wheel, he goes after the syndicate assassin. And from high-speed back-road chases to an explosive backwoods confrontation, mobster and maverick stalk each other: two of a kind, antagonists to the death.”


I haven’t been disappointed with a Bronson movie yet, even my wife sat through a few, one by herself.  Bronson had a series of films through “Cannon” that were really amazing (bad).  You can find montage’s of clips from these movies on you tube.  Here is  one of them and if this doesn’t make you want to watch them, you are in the wrong place.
