Writers R. Lance Hill and David Lee Henry are the same person. Hill was given the chance to adapt his own novel but used the pseudonym David Lee Henry. His work on the script was eventually written out by John Crowther, though the pseudonym of Henry still received a credit. See more »

A tense thriller that's not for everyone, but if you're one of those people that just thinks Bronson does Death Wish, check this one from the early 80s out. Bronson doesn't overplay it with explosions and a bad plot - this movie is tight and very believable.
