Movie Review by Movie Addict
April 12th, 2007

A real Spartan

You can cheer on the 300, but the real spartan is Charles Bronson in Hard Times. In true grind house style, he says little and lets his skill do the talking.

The fights are manly and proceed without the theatrics found in so many pretenders. Coburn is outstanding as the hustler who always gets himself into trouble.

Jill Ireland was just cast because of her relationship to Bronson and really contributed nothing to the movie.

The scenes, the music, the minimalist action, all contributed to a great film.

I found it interesting, and Bronson fans may have noticed it too, that when everyone was waiting for him to arrived, there was a train whistle in the background. All it needed was a fly on someone to mirror Once Upon a Time in The West.

She might have been cast for that reason, but looking at her is good enough reason for most. She was quite a lovely woman.

I won't disagree with that.
