VERDICT – 5/5

 
PROS –
1) It’s a modern day Charles Bronson western with high-speed car chases and high-powered gun action. The simplicity of the story is the biggest strength of the movie.
2) The Hitman vs The Melon Picker. The movie is a treat for Bronson fanboys.
3) Soundtrack by Charles Bernstein. Unexpectedly awesome.
4) Al Lettieri as Frank Renda, the hulking hot-headed hitman.

 

CONS –
N/A

 
QUOTE –
Frank Renda: You know, we could be in LA tonight. Get in a couple of broads. Go to Mexico city in a few days. Cruise around, get a boat, anything you want!
Vince Majestyk: I’ve been to LA, and I’ve been to Mexico. And I’ve been laid.
Frank Renda: Well, what do you want?
Vince Majestyk: I want to get a melon crop in!
