Everything Action Theater: The Evil That Men Do

Based on a novel from 1978, Charles Bronson was a retired assassin drawn back for “one last job” in 1984’s The Evil That Men Do.  One of the few 80s Bronson movies that wasn’t produced by Cannon, Bronson plays Holland, a former CIA assassin who gets recruited to take out “The Doctor” aka Clement Molloch (Joseph Maher), an expert in torture who offers his services to any country that will let him conduct his horrific experiments.  Holland’s friend Jorge (Jorge Humberto Robles) was a victim of The Doctor, which makes the mission personal, and he’s accompanied by Jorge’s wife and daughter as cover on the mission to take him out.  It’s classic Bronson with shootouts and car chases along with hilarious subterfuge and stalking out of his targets.  The movie was the fifth collaboration between Bronson and director J. Lee Thompson, with the pair working on 10 to Midnight in 1984 prior to The Evil That Men Do and they would collaborate afterward on Murphy’s Law, Death Wish IV, Messenger of Death and Kinjite: Forbidden Subjects.  The Evil That Men Do is definitely a deeper-cut Bronson movie and if you’ve never seen it, you can check out the entire movie below thanks to YouTube.
