Venue: Rivendell (Bronsothon)
The Good: At the risk of sounding like a broken record, there are some great kills in this film. The film is about a torture guru who plies his trade in Mexico among other countries with less-than-stable political regimes. But where most of his handy work is alluded to via newscasters and emergency room technicians, Bronson demonstrates his skill set for all to see with guns, knives, and even a nifty little fire hose trick.
The Bad: The story is extremely generic and I don't really buy Bronson's involvement in the proceedings.
The Weird: There is a scene wherein Bronson fights with a very large Mexican (whom I still contend is played by Richard Kiel but can't confirm) and grabs a mighty handful of the man's junk. He then proceeds to twist his manhood to near the breaking point. This is weird enough, but then the event manages to ensnare the attention of a bisexual bodyguard of our dastardly villain. Call me crazy, but if I were into dudes and saw one abusing that crucial part of the male anatomy in such a manor, my first response would not be to make a move on him. But then, that's just me.
Rating: 5/10 Atkins
