Once you appreciate how comically lurid Death Wish 2 is, you can relax and enjoy it for what it is. It's a Marvel Comic with someone to turn the pages for you.
While the first film convinced me of Bronson's need for vengeance, this one is just a series of dumb killings.
The results are every bit as revolting as in the original 1974 jackpot fantasy.
Overall, it's as unstylish as anything Winner has put his name to.
Even more foolish, more tacky and more selfrighteously inhumane than the 1974 melodrama off which it has been spun by the none-too-nimble fingers of Michael Winner.
a strong, visceral experience that is not always comfortable to watch but pleasing to watch as the bad guys get what's coming to them
The language is filthy, the film is simpleminded, and Bronson's character is as despicable as those he murders.
An unnecessary sequel, the first of too many.
And now, the latest in our continuing series, 'Why The Hell Was This Sequel Made?'
All the blood and none of the brain.
First sequel to the classic revenge action drama Death Wish is a step up in violence and action. Although not as great as the first, this film still manages to be thrilling from start to finish. After the events of the first film, Paul Kersey has moved to Los Angeles to restart a new life. Unfortunately he has to deal with the same situation again when hooligans break into his home rape his housekeeper and kidnap his daughter. He decides to clean up the streets again, and hunt down the hooligans who broke into his home. As a sequel, this film definitely is very good. It's definitely darker than the first film, more violent. Charles Bronson definitely shines here, and the film has plenty of action packed moments to keep you interested. The cast do a fine job in their performances, and as a whole, I personally feel that this is a fine sequel to a great film. Although it's not as memorable as the first film, this is still a must see and is good entertainment for action fans. I think as far as sequels are concerned, this among the better entries in the series, and is my personal favorite in this series. The plot is almost the same as the first, but who cares, Death Wish 2 is good fun from start to finish and if you're looking for a good action film to watch, then look no further than this film. Fans of the first will most likely enjoy this one as well, and it has something to appeal to every action buff. If you love Charles Bronson, you'll most likely love this film. A very well crafted follow-up to the first Death Wish, this one may be a bit more violent, but that shouldn't discourage fans of the first film.
Weak entry in the series, still has plenty of good deaths.
More brutal than the first one and the violent crank up a notch.But at times plays very cartoonsh with action sences.Micheal winner make los angeles of the early 80s a scary place to live in.I would say forget the third and other sequals and just keep to the first one and this.Chrarles Bronson is alway a pleasure to watchon screen and some of his best stuff was from the 70's and early 80's.
Be grateful for Michael Winner's sledgehammer sensitivity because it produced this classic.
None of Paul Kersey's (Charles Bronson) remaining family and friends get off lightly in this twisted nightmare of domestic violence, anal rape, vigilante justice and simplistic politics.
For fans of rough justice, the rape of Bronson's Mexican housemaid is truly amazing and eroticized like crazy by Winner's leering direction.
Thomas F. Duffy as Nirvana, the film's lead thug, is really horrible and a joy to behold (in a perverse way).
Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page provides a rock score that scorches the L.A. imagery and Vincent Gardenia returns as the cop who prefers to look the other way.
A Cannon-backed sleazefest that brings home the groceries if you like eating trash.
Screw GONE WITH THE WIND. This is much more entertaining.
