The Evil That Men Do

Overview

Sony has done a decent no-frills job with this disc of The Evil That Men Do. The two-sided DVD offers two presentations of the film, one full-frame and the other featuring an anamorphic, widescreen transfer. The widescreen transfer is a nice one, with solid colors and a nice sense of detail. The full-frame transfer is a lesser effort that looks murky and pixilated in spots but the quality of the widescreen transfer makes up for that. The disc retains the film's original mono mix: while it lacks the dynamics of a ...

Overview

Sony has done a decent no-frills job with this disc of The Evil That Men Do. The two-sided DVD offers two presentations of the film, one full-frame and the other featuring an anamorphic, widescreen transfer. The widescreen transfer is a nice one, with solid colors and a nice sense of detail. The full-frame transfer is a lesser effort that looks murky and pixilated in spots but the quality of the widescreen transfer makes up for that. The disc retains the film's original mono mix: while it lacks the dynamics of a stereo mix it does a fine job of presenting the soundtrack in a crisp style. The one extra on the disc is a set of trailers that presents the theatrical spot for The Evil That Men Do alongside trailers for The Replacement Killers and The Big Hit. More extras would have been nice but the trailer for The Evil That Men Do is a fun one, with a nice, old-fashioned "hard sell" approach. All in all, this is a solid pick for Charles Bronson fans despite the lack of bonus features.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Made right in the midst of Charles Bronson's transition from Hollywood star to 80's exploitation film icon, The Evil That Men Do is an interesting combination of both these personas. Like his classic Hollywood work, it boasts a strong supporting cast, handsome production values and a slick look. However, this film also has the brutality, pulp fiction-ish elements and sleazy overtones of the grittier fare he started doing around the same time with Cannon Films. One's appreciation for The Evil That Men Do will depend on how well one can deal with the aforementioned seamier elements. That said, those predisposed toward exploitation fare will enjoy the film's hard-hitting style. The script lacks shading and subtlety but it works efficiently as a grim revenge thriller, one with a nasty streak of dark humor (look out for the way Bronson dispatches a roughneck in a rural bar). J. Lee Thompson brings a nice sense of scope to the story and stages several effective action sequences: the most memorable is the desert-set finale, which manages to be gruesome and surreal all at once. Thompson also gets strong performances across the board: Theresa Saldana is affectingly vulnerable as the woman who assists Bronson while Joseph Maher hits a combination of arrogance and chilling cruelty that makes his villain easy to hate. Bronson remains his usual cool-under-fire self at the center of the action, bringing the occasional note of sly humor to certain scenes where he has to interact with the villains but otherwise playing the material straight. Ultimately, The Evil That Men Do is a programmer -- and a rather sleazy one at that -- but it guaranteed to entertain the Bronson fanbase and is better than a lot of films he would do later on.
