When Hell Broke Loose

Posted on

Here’s Charles Bronson, before he started looking like the face of a cliff, in one of his earliest starring roles. He plays a bookie forced by a judge to join the Army; a misfit and a cynic, he causes no end of trouble for the GIs in Germany. But guess what happens? That’s right: He becomes a hero. A standard gung-ho bottom-of-the-bill programmer, When Hell Broke Loose is for the deeply devoted only.
