Stone Killer, The (1973)

A rather violent crime film based on John Gardner’s book, A Complete State of Death.

Detective Lou Torrey (Charles Bronson) is transferred to Los Angeles and uncovers a plot by insane Sicilian mafioso Al Vescari (Martin Balsam) to use Vietnam veterans to murder all his enemies in a rerun of the “Sicilian Vespers” when the previous generation of Sicilian Mafiosi were all killed on a single day.

There’s an exceptional climax in a desert fortress where the Vietnam vets are being trained.
