The mechanic (1972, 99 min.): Arthur Bishop is a mob hit man who operates in a world of his own. He's always worked alone, but as age catches up with him, Bishop takes on a competent and ruthless apprentice and teaches him everything he knows. Together they become an unmatchable team of globe-trotting killers -- until the pupil's ruthlessness puts him on a collision course with his teacher.
Assassination (1987, 88 min.): When veteran Secret Service Agent Jay Killian is assigned to protect the president's pampered and difficult wife, he knows she will be a handful. What he doesn't know is that assassins are out to kill her. He must use his lethal experience to shield the First Lady from danger while tracing her would-be murderer.
Messenger of death (1988, 91 min.) : Could a simple feud between brothers lead to the brutal massacre of an entire family? Garrett Smith travels to a remote Rocky Mountain town to investigate and uncovers far more sinister motives. He unravels a plot of greed and religious zealotry. Can he get to the bottom of the murders before an 'avenging angel' visits him with an equally deadly message?

Three Bronson shoot'em ups in one box. He plays an assassin, a Secret Service agent guarding the first lady and a newspaperman investigating Mormon cult members shooting one another. Not a terrible way to spend an evening.
