Editorial Reviews

Three action-packed films starring Charles Bronson. Films include: The Mechanic, Assassination and Messenger of Death.

The Mechanic (1972, Rated PG, 129 minutes): Arthur Bishop (Charles Bronson) is a mob hit man who operates in a world of his own… an uncompromising world where conventional rules of morality don't apply and where one wrong move could cost him his life! He's always worked alone, but as age catches up with him, Bishop takes on a competent and ruthless apprentice (Jan-Michael Vincent) and teaches him everything he knows. Together they become an unmatchable team of globe-trotting killers…until the pupil's ruthlessness puts him on a collision course with his teacher.

Assassination (1987, Rated PG-13, 88 minutes): Rugged superstar Charles Bronson is at his rugged best as a man on a mission to protect the First Lady from ruthless assassins who will stop at nothing to kill her. When veteran Secret Service Agent Jay Killian (Bronson) is assigned to protect the president’s pampered and difficult wife (Jill Ireland), he knows she will be a handful. But what he doesn’t know is that the assassins are out to kill her. Not only must Killian use his lethal experience to shield the First Lady from danger, he must also do it while tracking her would-be murder.

Messenger of Death (1988, Rated R, 91 minutes): Charles Bronson stars as a crime reporter on a relentless search for the truth in this suspense thriller. Could a simple feud between brothers lead to the brutal massacre of an entire family? Garret Smith (Bronson) travels to a remote Rocky Mountain town to investigate and uncovers far more sinister motives. As he gets closer to the bizarre truth, Smith unravels a plot of greed, revenge and religious zealotry. But can he get to the bottom of the murders before an avenging angel visits him with an equally deadly message?

2.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete January 25, 2011
Unless I happened to get a bum copy, which is possible I guess, the first movie in this 3-movie set is missing a half hour! The Mechanic is only about 68 minutes long and the missing part is from about the time they begin to stalk the three motorcyclists. The phone rings and then there's a sudden jump to Italy near the end of the movie, just before a car chase. Renders the copy of the movie worthless. I don't know if it somehow has to do with them cramming THREE feature length movies onto one single disc or what... Just beware.

5.0 out of 5 stars replacements for the bad copies April 23, 2011
As you can see there was a manufactoring error on this disc. THE MECHANIC was about 30 minutes short. I went to the TGG site and emailed them. They are aware of the problem and have made new ones. You send them your address and they will mail you a replacement copy. I received mine today.

They were very good about this.

So, let's thank them publicly for standing behind their product, and for this great 3-movie DVD!!!

As the other reviewer noted, THE MECHANIC is incomplete by a half hour, with a drastic cut - the leads are in a darkroom and then suddenly in the middle of a car chase. I haven't watched the other films yet. I contacted TGG inquiring about a replacement but haven't received a response.

UPDATE - received a nice reply from TGG saying there was a manufacturing error in the dvd and they would mail out a replacement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Actor, Charles Bronson September 14, 2012
Verified Purchase
Charles Bronson was a great person and a superb actor; these are three of his Best Movies. The world lost a great actor when Charles Bronson passed away. If you like action movies performed by one of it's brightest stars, then this selection will certainly not disappoint you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not So Fast On The Replacement Of Bad Copies August 29, 2012
This review is chiefly in response to the false information given that TGG DIRECT aka CD UNIVERSE will replace defective copies of movies sold under their name. Only DVDs purchased from them directly will be so honored, which is nothing more than the same kind of return policy you'd expect from any legitimate outlet. No big deal, here. Just be warned that if you buy a defective DVD from Amazon, you're entitled to nothing more than a refund or replacement period. It will do no good to go anywhere else and plead your case. As always, Buyer Beware.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mechanic March 21, 2012
By RD
I just bought this and my copy of the Mechanic was cut out by 30 minutes. I did as the other reviewer suggeseted by contacting TGG and sent them an E-Mail. I got a response within an hour from them saying - They appologized for the inconvience and needed my address so they could send me another copy of it. If this is how they do buisiness then I will continue to by their products without worry. The movies themselves look great even though there are 3 movies on one disc.
Update - I recived a new copy within a couple of days - Great Company to do buisiness with!!

5.0 out of 5 stars must see the original August 19, 2011
Verified Purchase
movie remakes are occurring more and more but some do not come close to the originals. Charles Bronson and Jan Micheal Vincent are the real deal. they show you the world under our own. the horror that exists behind they charismatic smile and the that supports the men who do what others dare not imagine...the glamor the risks, the loneliness of the life they chose...action, plot as only Bronson can deliver

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Bronson March 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
3 1970's movies when Charley was in his prime and the scripts were more easier to follow -- not for the children.
