An aging hitman befriends a young man who wants to be a professional killer. Eventually it becomes clear that someone has betrayed them.
The film was originally to be directed by Monte Hellmann, who had critical but not financial success in 1971 with the road movie 'Two Lane Blacktop' but after a few weeks the film's producers Irwin Winkler And Robert Chartoff, switched studios and brought in Michael Winner, who would be directing Bronson for a second time, after 'Chato's Land'.
Murder is only killing without a license.
When Charles Bronson reads the lips of the men in the park, he hands Jan Michael-Vincent a tape recorder and tells him to turn it on, ostensibly to record what he is reading. However, he only pushes "Play", not "Record".
The 1988 UK Warner video release was cut by 7 secs by the BBFC to remove closeup shots of a lock picking. The cuts were restored in the 2004 MGM DVD.
