Bronson was a limited actor, but the lines in Majestyk are not funny
lines like many in those three relatively recent movies, which also
had much larger budgets. It has been a while, but Bronson doesn't ruin
Majestyk. The production is very seventies, but still adequate, by
which I mean that the movie does not come across as ridiculous. It is
watchable, perhaps because the story is a strong one and at the same
time a very basic one (straight out of a classic Western).
