Plot summary

Holland (Bronson) is a former CIA assassin who lives quietly and peacefully on a West Indies island. He is persuaded out of retirement by the death of Jorge Hidalgo (played by Jorge Humberto Robles), a friend and dissident journalist. Hidalgo was murdered by Clement Molloch (played by Joseph Maher), a Welsh doctor who lives in Guatemala. Molloch (cf. Moloch) has made a science of the practice of torture and sells his knowledge and skills to any government that can pay his price.

Holland is hired by Hector Lomelin (played by Josť Ferrer), a professor and friend of Hidalgo. He poses as a family man (Lomelin's wife Isabel is played by Constanza Hool) and is accompanied to Guatemala by Hidalgo's widow Rhiana (played by Theresa Saldana) and daughter Sarah (played by Amanda Nicole Thomas).

Production notes

The film, shot in Mexico, includes a score by Ken Thorne and cinematography by Xavier Cruz. The Evil That Men Do was originally planned by Cannon Films but was scrapped over a financing dispute. In the end, however, ITC and Tri-Star took over production.
