Death Wish 4: The Crackdown Reviews
it has typical violent gun play, that you would expect.
In fact, the plot is more like the 2010 action film Machete, maybe this is an inspiration for that film?
More of the same, except Bronson plans to wipe out drug dealers. Exceptionally cheap entry in this already embarrassing series.
Wherever his humble character from these films, Paul Kersey goes there is death.
Bronson seemed to release several 'vigilante/revenge' pictures at this stage of his career aided by a willing studio, Cannon.
The Cannon Group as they were in the 1980s released a glut of low to medium budget range action pictures that are just glorified TV films that often went straight to (VHS) video!
You have to feel some sympathy for the Kersey character. All his loved ones seem to be raped or murdered.
The effects of crack cocaine is the central theme of this episode. I say episode because some scenes play out like an episode of The A-Team.
Bronson then must have been the oldest actioner around. Very Harrison Ford age range now. Or Liam Neeson in the Taken franchise which seems to be going the same way as the Death Wish franchise.
The director is not Michael Winner but some other geezer.
A definate film to fill in 90 minutes when you have the TV remote to yourself.

* Death Wish II (1981)

and i also own it on Blu-Ray.
"Death Wish 4: The Crackdown" is the fourth installment in the Death Wish film series and it was directed by J. Lee Thompson. What can you say, this is a classic 80īs splatter violent B-action movie with some sort of social political agenda against drugs in America. The original idea from the first "Death Wish" has been so diluted here it has lost its flavour and the same goes for a stale and old Bronson. Bronsonīs Kersey makes so many hasty decisions in his hunt for the bad guys it makes no sense at all at times. And itīs so funny to see how every bloody action movie from the 80s used MAC 10s or mini UZIs, making "Death Wish 4: The Crackdown" no exception.
