Murphy’s Law, a very violent urban crime meller, is tiresome but too filled with extreme incident to be boring.

Title refers not only to the w.k. axiom that, ‘Whatever can go wrong will go wrong,’ but to Bronson’s personal version of it: ‘Don’t **** with Jack Murphy.’ Title character (played by Charles Bronson) is an LA cop who’s down but not quite out, a tough loner whose main companion in life is his flask now that his wife has left him.

Murphy’s life is shaken up even more when the ex-wife and numerous others around him are mowed down. Booked for the crimes, he escapes handcuffed to a foul-mouthed female street urchin (Kathleen Wilhoite), and after many more bodies hit the deck, he clears his name by tracking down killer Carrie Snodgress.
