Scene of the Week: The Evil That Men Do
When you think of Charles Bronson in the 1980’s, you think of his extensive work with Cannon Films. From 1982 to 1989, Bronson starred in 8 movies for Cannon Films but along the way he managed to get in a few non-Cannon projects, like 1984’s The Evil That Men Do.
Interestingly enough, The Evil That Men Do was originally pitched to Cannon by frequent Bronson collaborator Pancho Kohner. When a deal couldn’t be made with Menahem Golan, Kohner was able to cut a deal with the British based ITC Entertainment to produce the film.
In The Evil That Men Do, Charles Bronson plays a professional killer named Holland. Holland is retired from the killing game as the movie begins, but when he receives news that an old friend was murdered by a man known as The Doctor… Holland makes his way south of the border to exact revenge! Holland, wanting to appear to be a family man on vacation, travels with his his deceased friend’s widow and daughter.
To describe this week’s Scene of the Week, I will use a device I often use in the Bonus Bullet Points section of my reviews on this very site and simply say if you ever wanted to see Charles Bronson subdue a man by applying a death grip to the man’s junk, then this is the Scene of the Week for you!
