PLOT: Arthur Bishop (Charles Bronson) is a veteran hit man who, owing to his penchant for making his targets’ deaths seem like accidents, thinks himself an artist. It’s made him very rich, but as he hits middle age, he’s so depressed and lonely that he takes on one of his victim’s sons, Steve McKenna (Jan-Michael Vincent), as his apprentice. Arthur puts him through a rigorous training period and brings him on several hits. As Steven improves, Arthur worries that he’ll discover who killed his father.
It’s a little bit slower than the Statham remake in terms of pacing but I still thoroughly enjoy the movie and I love how here isn’t any dialogue for the first 10 minutes. It just builds atmosphere and tension perfectly.
There are few more badass than Charles Bronson so let’s take a look at how many foolish humans he disposes of courtesy of All Outta Bubblegum.
Kill Count: 24
24 is an impressive number by anyone’s standards and for Bronson that’s just a walk in the park.
