Director:Jerrold Freedman Writers:Jerrold Freedman, Steve Kline Actors:Charles Bronson, Bruno Kirby, Ed Harris, Karmin Murcelo
Borderline is one of the most underrated Bronson's movies. It's a solid action-adventure-drama movie, based on some real events, with a well-written script, a gripping plot and some interesting characters. The few action scenes of the movie are very short but well-shot, suspenseful and effective. The movie has a great soundtrack composed by Gil Melle and a fascinating, love-or-hate, documentarish cinematography by Tak Fujimoto(Badlands, The Silence Of The Lambs, The Sixth Sense). Ed Harris is really great as the tough vilain. I was expecting a bad movie like Caboblanco but I was pleasantly surprised since the movie has no significant weaknesses, it actually enters the top-5 list of my favorite Bronson's movies of the 80's(besides Death Hunt, The Evil That Men Do, Death Wish II and Murphy's Law).
Bronson once stated: "I think that films can be educational and entertaining. Borderline (1980) fits both of those categories." I think that statement holds true.
