Death Wish 3 Reviews
Balsam and Lauter are outstanding, and heartily show why in the 70's and 80's, they were so great to watch in supporting roles.
I like some of Golan/Globus' work but I don't think Death Wish 3 is their masterpiece.
As for the big gun, it isn't used very much and is supplemented by many other lethal instruments of death.
Well, this is the point in the Death Wish franchise where the makers suddenly decided that Paul Kersey is now a action hero in the likes of Rambo and Commando, with a big supply of weapons, including a machine gun and a rocket launcher to use against an army of thugs that rule the almost post-apocalyptic looking part of New York.
Despite this, it is still a gritty film with a lot of graphic moments that the Death Wish films are known for, just a bit more over the top, and it's not exactly a bad thing.
Bronson's back to New York, where he continues to rid the world of scum. While better than PART II, it's still extraordinarily stupid, sometimes stunningly awful acting, with some hilarious dialogue, too.
Charles Bronson returns as a sixty something vigilante some 10 years after the original Death Wish film.
After a hiatus in Los Angeles Kersey returns to New York City for this escapade helping residents (mostly elderly) in some gang infested sink area of the city.
However this time Bronson as Paul Kersey acts with the secret full knowledge of an NYPD cop that has known of his antics from the beginning.
The film is appalling. The acting is pure non existent! The entertainment is gained from seeing the array of weopenry that Kersey uses and booby traps he uses.
The Cannon Group filed for bankcrupty in the early 1990s. After a string of releases like this that is hardly surprising. Sundance it ain't.
One question I have of the local residents many of whom are OAPs. Why live in the area?
Ive seen part IV so its onto Death Wish V next. How old is the late Charles Bronson in that.
Some interesting bits of trivia about this. It is the final Death Wish film directed by the also late Michael Winner.
Bronson himself apparently disliked the film.
Most of the film was shot (pardon the pun) in London, UK not New York City.
