A Bullet for Pretty Boy is the 1970 B-movie. Charles Arthur Floyd is a man with a new family. After he accidentally kills a man who was planning to murder him, he goes to prison. He escapes and wants to reunite with his wife and son. Charles finds refuge in a brothel and gets called “pretty boy.” Pretty Boy joins Ned Short’s gang so he can get enough money for his family. They rob a series of banks and he is reunited with his wife, Ruby. However, his last heist will end in tragedy.

This movie is okay, even if it’s not very memorable. Some viewers may question Charles’ love for Ruby, given that he sleeps with a prostitute. There is plenty of action and the film wastes no time in getting to the main plot. That being said, the movie is actually kind of boring. There’s nothing that gets the audiences really excited. Although unlike other B-movies, the plot is well-developed. Some viewers may get the impression that this film was made to cash in on the success of Bonnie and Clyde. Honolulu action film fans need to rent this one first.
