If you realize the last sequence you will understand you agree with Bronson in that sardonic smile. eye for eye.
Plot: LT Crowe(Charles Bronson) goes out of his way to bust a child prostitution ring. He ends up furious after his daughter is molested by an Asian man. He later has to help an Asian man find his own daughter after she was kidnapped. Here is a twist: the same man Crowe has to help molested Crowe's daughter.
The storyline is what keeps the movie interesting. The action scenes are kept to a minimum and Charles Bronson had some pretty funny lines. The main reason why I like Kinjite: Forbidden Subjects is that you can tell that there was an effort to make it work. It wasn't your typical Charles Bronson fare and that made it appealing. My biggest gripe with the film is that the same guy that molested Crowe's daughter is never dealt with. That just doesn't sit too well with me but other than that it was a good movie.
Its easy to slam this movie based on a subject matter that repulses most people but that isnt being fair. Child prostitution is a reality so bashing a movie for showing a reality is pretty damn stupid. But what can you expect from the same critics that gave Speed 2: Booze Control two thumbs up? If you love the late Charles Bronson's movies than you cant go wrong with Kinjite: Forbidden Subjects. Its better than the weak link of the Death Wish series.

Crowe and Eddie are successful and they save the teenager. Crowe isn't finished with the "John" yet, it is implied Crowe sticks the dildo up the man's kazoo.

Buying this movie on Blu-Ray is sensible, but that cover doesn't do it for me. It's someone's grindhouse style fan poster. It doesn't fit the style of Cannon Films. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Michael Kuzmanovski

As a fan of Charles Bronson, I enjoyed his acting in Forbidden Subjects. He has a very moderate way of displaying Good conclusions and Attacking Bad guys.Published on May 16, 2014 by Socrates
