Movie Info

Michael Winner ups the ante once again in Death Wish 3. Any pretense of Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) having a career in architecture is completely gone. Kersey's new career appears to be as a professional vigilante, blowing away muggers, rapists and thieves off the mean streets -- or as he terms it "thinning the herd." Back in New York City, Kersey, with his usual luck, arrives just in time to find an old friend dying after a vicious beating by a multi-cultural gang of thugs. The cops arrest … More

Critic Reviews for Death Wish 3

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

Preposterously Rambo-esque.

Entertainment Weekly
Top Critic

Attempts to justify the ensuing mass-murder are perfunctory.

Top Critic

This is nothing more than cinematic masturbation.

Time Out
Top Critic

There is not a moment of credibility in the movie and the ending is sheer chaos, and anticlimactic at that. Mr. Winner runs out of imagination before Mr. Bronson runs out of ammunition.

Top Critic

The action, direction and special effects are all better than the last time around, which isn't saying much.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

Overblown and unrealistic yet ultimately cathartic and exciting, Death Wish 3 is still an entertaining ride.

Audience Reviews for Death Wish 3

Third film is a thrilling action packed underrated Bronson film that is a must see for fans of the genre. I very much loved this film, and I thought that the action scenes were well done, providing some good entertainment. If you loved the first two films, then check this one out. The plot is fairly simple, like the first two but it becomes a more in your face, raw and aggressive actioner that has a very entertaining ending. Charles Bronson still delivers on-screen, and as a third film, Death Wish 3 still manages to be very good. By the end time a series gets to this point, it runs out of effective ideas, though the ideas here are nothing new, director Michael Winner crafts a solid action film that incorporates all the usual elements of a Death Wish film, revenge, vigilantism and top notch action. Don't expect an Oscar winning film with this film; expect a fun, entertaining film that relies on its action to tell its story. If you love these types of films, check this film out. And it's one film that is quite underrated as well. The performances aren't memorable, but what keeps the ball moving are the solid action scenes that make up the film. This would have been a fine to a trilogy of memorable action films, but they just went ahead and made two more films in the series. I feel that along with the second film, Death Wish 3 is the darkest film in the franchise. I loved this film and yes, it has its flaws, but it's nowhere near as bad as what many critics have claimed it to be. If you're a Charles Bronson fan, you'll enjoy this film.
