In a city set to explode, one man has just lit the fuse! After a bloody double-cross leaves him for dead, professional hit man Jeff (Charles Bronson) tracks the shooter and his beautiful mistress (Jill Ireland) to New Orleans. But when Jeff takes both revenge and the woman, he finds himself blackmailed by a powerful crime boss (Telly Savalas) who wants the fiercely independent gunman to join his organization. Jeff refuses, and is hunted through an unforgiving city where love is like a loaded gun and debts of vengeance are paid in bullets. This is no ordinary Bronson movie! Packed with savage action and a shocking twist ending, Violent City (also known as "The Family") was directed by Italian genre ace Sergio Sollima. The fast-paced screenplay was co-written by the brilliant Lina Wertmüller, and the pulse-pounding score was crafted by the legendary Ennio Morricone. This special edition includes both the original and the 1973 US cut.
