A young man who was sentenced to seven years in prison for robbing a post office ends up spending three decades in solitary confinement. During this time, his own personality is supplanted by his alter-ego, Charles Bronson.
Jason Statham was originally asked to play Charles Bronson but scheduling conflicts prevented him from appearing in this film.
Right! I've got a librarian up here, and he's in a lot of trouble!
When Charlie is dancing with the "loonies", "It's a Sin" by Pet Shop Boys is played out of the stereo. The song was not released until 1987.
