You pretty much know, what you're in for with a Charles Bronson flick, made with his friends, Golan and Globus, and "No" J Lee Thompson, didn't direct this one. Charles Bronson is of course, mild mannered Charles Bronson, no Oscar feat here. He is outshone by his talented support players, of course Ireland, the first lady to the American president. Bronson, a secret service agent, is assigned to protect Ireland, something, both parties are begrudgingly against, who are brought together after a number of well staged assassination are made on her. Assassination does deliver on action, more than many other Bronson/Golan Globus flicks. It's a very good action movie, one of those really good fast paced yarns, where the bald baddie, has never looked better in a nasty shock violent moment. It's plot is straight forward, and is not really much in the thriller stakes. We make who the baddies and goodies our, though with veteran Prince, who plays Ireland's Dad, on moment had me doubting. Another cute attribute sas to other Bronson pics, has a young Korean hottie colleague, Bronson is dating, warning and checking in with him, to make he's not fooling around. In one scene, where Ireland, falls in front of Bronson, in a motel room, a romantic moment almost ensues. I know it would have been good to see a affair develop between the real life couple, but this pairing is strictly professional, and in this movie, it's a better choice to avoid this, I think, instead of falling into that cliché'd lovey dovey soppiness. The film is well written and takes a realistic and interesting look behind what's involved in protecting model figures and in the presidency itself, this time a corrupt one, involving the most important figure. It kind of has you wondering if Trump was elected, would he stoop to the same cold acts. As I just spoke about the realistic approach, another Golan Globus familiarity, via The Delta Force film, was where the motorbikes too, shot out little rockets. This just adds positively to the zest of this good action yarn.

Jay Killian (Charles Bronson) had been the presidential bodyguard, but for the inauguration of the recently elected president, he is assigned to the first lady, Lara Royce (Jill Ireland).

Eventually, the shaken Lara decides to trust Killian's instincts and precautionary methods, and the pair embark on a difficult and often perilous cross-country journey, with the assassins close on their heels.

Bronson deliversReviewed byvideorama-759-859391Vote: 7/10
In the twilight years of his career, Charles Bronson forged long-runningpartnerships with several directors, most notably J. Lee Thompson andMichael Winner. He did two films for one-time Bond director Peter Hunt too -the first being the decent 1981 actioner Death Hunt, the second being thisindifferent political chase thriller. Assassination is pretty dull if truthbe known, and come the end you'll find yourself longing for something with abit more passion and pace, like The Wilby Conspiracy for instance (which,plotwise, this film resembles).
Bronson sleepwalks through his role as bodyguard Jay Killian, whoseassignment is to protect the American President's wife, Lara Royce Craig(Jill Ireland, real-life wife of Bronson). Killian believes that Mrs Craighas been targetted by assassins; she thinks he's an over-protective,paranoid pessimist. Turns out - surprise, surprise - that Killian was rightall along and someone is indeed out to eradicate her. The pair of them go onthe run, pursued by the assassins.
Everyone knows that the wife of an American President is known as The FirstLady. For some reason, in this film they have renamed her "One Mama"! Quitewhat the point of this is is anybody's guess, but it's indicative of thefilm's pointlessness as a whole. Most of the film's performances are lazy,and the script takes a heck of a long time to get to where it's going. If Ihad to label Assassination within a specific genre, I'd say it is supposedto be a "thriller". I'd say that with some reservations, however, as to saythat it's a thriller it has precious few thrills.
Let me start by saying that Charles Bronson is one of my favorite actors and I think my mom found this one on VHS at a flea market back in 2015.
This movie is honestly pretty good, it's entertaining if not a little corny in places but I love it anyway.
Charles is a bad ass action hero in these action movies I'm a fan of his Death Wish films I haven't seen him in a lot but I'm planing on trying to find more with him.
I like in this story that he plays a secret service agent hired to protect the First lady who he doesn't really like, that I feel is a nice change of pace, then your typical standard story, it made for some nice levels of comedy.
Overall, I give it a 6/10. It's just a fun action film that you can sit back enjoy, and see
Charles Bronson kick some terrorist ass.
