    Charles Bronson plays the part of a drifter, a loner, and a man who speaks soft and hits hard, in Walter Hill’s HARD TIMES

    The American action auteur Walter Hill made a magnificent debut with this pulp triumph, featuring evocative period atmosphere and sterling performances from Charles Bronson and James Coburn.

    Bronson plays a drifter suddenly caught up in the fight game during the Great Depression. Chaney, a down-on-his-luck loner, hops a freight train to New Orleans where, on the seedier side of town, he tries to make some quick money the only way he knows how - with his fists. Chaney approaches a hustler named Speed (James Coburn) and convinces him that he can win big money for them both.

    Gritty, vivid and engrossing, the Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present this 1970s gem, available on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, and presented from a new 4K restoration, in a new Dual-Format edition.

    DUAL FORMAT SPECIAL FEATURES including:

Classic Walter Hill

Hard Times is Walter Hill's first movie and it's an absolute classic. I would say this movie is probably my favorite of his, or at least in the Top 3. It's an adventure movie about a drifter turned illegal prize-fighter during the Depression Era in New Orleans. Charles Bronson performance is fantastic, and this movie absolutely suits his personality. Fans of the movie Emperor of the North with Lee Marvin will love this flick. This release is a 4k restoration and it looks fantastic on a 4K television.

excellent film a true clasic

Charles bronson proves age does not matter he is ageless and his character of few words shows that he can play the tough guy at any age it is a fantastic film of the probition era a clasic worth owning in high definition. A Walter hill classic
