Swift and Deadly action + Some suspense = Worth watching onc

"Charles Bronson performance is riveting. The plot has big logical holes which reduces the entertaining value of the movie. The worst thing about this DVD is the video quality. It looks washed out from the beginning till the end. The ending scenes were too dark I could hardly see anything. It looked much better when it was re-run on the Movie Channel."
Not the greatest Bronson movie but amusing

"This is not the greatest Bronson movie ever made but it is nonetheless entertaining. It does have one spectacular car chase or rather motorcycle pursuit on winding roads of south of France. There are some nice perforamnces and it's fun to see James Mason play a villain although he's a likable one. Liv Ullman is fine and Jill Ireland plays a hilarious rich hippie chick.
There are the usual plot absurdities but Bronson is the reason we watch these movies and he's no different here. He's a very likeable tough guy trying very hard to be nice around bunch of incorrigable villains.
The main concern here though is the resolution quality. It looks like they transfered a video quality image. On a high def flat panel it looks aweful, but you can still enjoy the film. I wish they would remaster but I guess that's why the price is cheap. If image quality and DVD presentation are important then this should really get a 2 star rating."
