Editorial Reviews

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!

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.

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.

CB IS TOTAL ACTION AND THIS IS ONE OF HIS BEST MOVIES.! SHOOK MY HEAD WHILE I SAT ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT AT THE SITUATION(S) HE WAS IN.
(1) A SMART MOUTHED TEENAGER WHO USES PHRASES THAT NEEDS CLOROX BLEACH NOT SOAP!
(2) A DERANGED WOMAN IS OUT FOR REVENGE, AFTER ALL HE DID PUT AWAY HER CRIMINAL BOYFRIEND. (CARRIE SNODGRASS IS EXCELLENT IN THIS MOVIE TOO!)
(3) THE MOB IS AFTER HIM, BECAUSE HE TOOK DOWN ONE OF THEIR CRIMINAL BROTHERS WHO'D JUST TOOK A HOSTAGE AND SHOT HER IN THE HEAD! (3) CROOKED COPS ARE OUT TO BETRAY HIM. THAT'S WHAT i'D CALL A FULL DAY!

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.Read more ›

I saw this when it first appeared in theaters and loved it. Bronson plays the typical alcoholic cop chasing a crazed killer. He has unexpected company when a young lass becomes involved with him when she steals his car, and they somehow bond and work together to catch the criminal. She constantly batters him with insults ("butt crust"), which are hilarious and numerous. The ending is worth the wait. . .and I won't give it away. Spend the money, get the popcorn and Raisinettes, and enjoy this Charles Bronson classic.

I like Bronson--his Hard Times is my favorite--but I had somehow missed this one. Too bad I didn't continue with that. Dumb story, dumb girl, an incredible amount of gratuitous (and totally unnecessary) foul language. This has to have been the bottom of the barrel for Charlie.
