Product Description

Product Description

A killer on a rampage learns the hard way: "Don't mess with Jack Murphy!" Charles Bronson stars in this thrilling game of hide-and-seek between a clever psychopath and a lone lawman hellbent on reaping justice. Veteran detective Jack Murphy (Bronson) is suddenly a wanted man after he's framed for the murder of his ex-wife. Taken into custody by the very cops he works with, Murphy has no choice but to escape and hunt down the killer who set him up. But even as he pursues a false lead, Murphy is pursued by the real murderer a psychotic woman (Carrie Snodgress) out for revenge against those who institutionalized her ten years earlier including Murphy!

Amazon.ca

This thoroughly unpleasant 1986 thriller stars Charles Bronson as a cop systematically framed for one murder after another. The killings, though, turn out to be the work of a female nutcase (Carrie Snodgress) he had once sent away to prison. Everyone involved in this leans on the atrocity-and-revenge formula, particularly Bronson and director J. Lee Thompson (The Guns of Navarone), two Hollywood guys who once upon a time made plenty of classic films. Snodgress's performance is unhinged, interesting but hard to watch, as we never really got to know her onscreen after Diary of a Mad Housewife. Just think of this movie as having come from the same creepy planet as the Death Wish series. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A solid and very entertaining mid 80s Charles Bronson actioner.
Rivalled only by "The Evil That Men Do" and "10 to Midnight" for the accolade of Bronson's best movie after his 70s heyday.
I've watched this film several times and always enjoy it. Kathleen Wilhoite makes a sparkling and memorable debut and was seen recently in the first season of "24".
Bronson fans are very unlikey to be disappointed in what is - like many later Bronson pics - pretty standard good action fare elevated by the great man's personal charisma. Therefore, this film is perhaps unlikley to ensnare any new converts.

He throws his groceries at carjackers! He gargles mouthwash! He hates mayonaise! He's an alcoholic! He has a girl 104 years younger than him, hitting on him! His ex wife is a stipper! And he's framed for murder! He's Jack Murphy, a no nonsense cop framed for murder, trying to clear his name...tra-la, tra-la. The plot is as cliche as it can be, but this is Bronson, baby! Us devoted Bronson fans watch his films because he's in them and we all love the charm and presence he brings to the run of the mill 80s action formula. Actually, we could all care less what it's about as long as Bronson's kicking some butt and shooting people from time to time. This film is no exception and will please the diehard Bronson lover in us all. Plus, this movie's got one of the coolest villians that Bronson's been up against. This woman is crazy and dangerous as hell. In one scene she drowns some poor schmuck in a bathtub, then decides to throw a lamp in the tub for some added zing! I hate to sound repetitive, but ah, the 80s! Get Murphy's Law, brothers and sisters. It's a wonderful piece of bric-a-brac for your Bronson collection.

im really bored so i decided on writing this review. I caught this movie flipping through the channels one day. It is a good movie although freakishly disturbing, like that blonde chick, who drowns people in bathtubs with lamps, gags them and puts them in elevator shafts set to go doooooown and all with solid look on her face. Not to mention when the red haired chick nearly gets raped..yikes. But charles bronson is cool and this movie is alright for its type.

HASH(0x9c417bac) out of 5 stars Murphy sets out to clear his name. Oct. 14 2014

I've seen this movie many times, A lot of the other actors aside from Charles Bronson in this movie I don't really remember who they are in real life & who they star as. I'll have to watch it again. Murphy is a damm good cop, & stops street punks & thieves, he's good. & brings down his sidekick girl in the beginning of the movie when she tries stealing his car. Murphy soon gets set up by a woman named Jone Freeman who threatened to kill him when she called him on the telephone in the middle of the night. She sneaks into murphy's car while in he's in a night club spying on his exwife, & then she hits him over the head knocks murphy out & follows his exwife & her boyfriend back to their apartment where she commits the murder & frames Murphy. 2 cops soon arrest Murphy who's surprized to see them & eager to find out who set him up. & to my surprize he was handcuffed to the little punk he arrested. She needed a good slap in the face. Murphy plots his escape on a mission to seek the one who framed him, he hijacks a helicopter & they make their gettaway. Its kind of odd how they landed on that barn. But no pigs or chickens or horses, This is a dope plant place murphy says. The men there were Jerks. & have the advatage over Murphy for a little while. When they started messing with the girl Murphy made it personal even though he didn't like her. & they find there way to a friend of Murphy's place named Ben Wilko. A black man who's on crutches. I got to tell you I think Murphy's relationship with that sidekick punk was a complete downfall. It didn't seem like they'd ever start getting along.
Whoever she is in real life she must have been in her 20's, & Murphy? Probably around 65 yrs old. Perhaps a little younger.
Jone Freeman must have followed Murphy there to the black mans house, because shortly after Murphy left Jone Freeman shows up & murders poor Ben. Bens looking around in his house he knows something isn't right, & all of a sudden he's shoved to the ground.
Murphy thinks Frank Venjenzo is the one who framed him who's also after Murphy to avenge the death of his brother who was killed at the airport earlier in the movie. & no you don't mess with Murphy. Nobody should. I like Murphy! He turned out to be one tough ombre!! Frank Venjezo gets beat up by Murphy & pleads to Murphy I didn't do it! I don't know what your talking about. The girl says I hate to say it but I think he's telling the truth. Frank looks like one of those Italian guys. & he now wants Murphy more than ever. Jone Freeman captures the street punk to use her as bait to lure Murphy into her trap. Frank Venjenzo tries taking him too, he looses his entire team, after shooting at Murphy with machine guns, Then Frank Venjenzo dies. If you like the action I don't think it gets any better than this.
Carrie Snodgress played her role very well in this movie as Jone Freeman. The framing lunatic, killed her judge & some of the jury members. Murphy barely made it against her but survived & wound up in an ambulance him & the street punk, She'll always have a foul mouth Murphy got to learn to live with her, ha,ha,ha,ha,ha. I think she was funny with some of the names she called Murphy. A lot of that Murphy managed to ignore. Some of it he couldn't when she pushed him to the breaking point. I'd have broke out of jail too he had to get to the truth & that was the only way for him to do so, Try & track down the one who framed him. That was heck of a show down between those 2. I kind of wonder what happened afterwards. Did Murphy ever get his job back? I think a lot of us wonder. I did like Arabella McGee. She wasn't easy to put up with! She was just young I guess. And your going to find out some people do have that kind of attitude. Believe me its true. I'm not going to lie to you! She did express herself in the most immature way with Murphy.
