Audience Reviews for Death Wish II

  • Aug 09, 2012
    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.

    Really stupid. I mean, it's still pretty entertaining, but it's just so dumb. I mean, implausibly dumb. But then again, how much can you really expect out a film from a series called Death Wish?

    A pretty good sequel, now set in L.a after being told to get out of Newyork in the first. the set up is coincidence to get it going but the tone certainly fits in with the first, from there a great pace gets it going as he focuses on the gang that rapes his housekeepere vthen kills his kid. some great violence setting tone and Bronson has some presence

    <i>Charles Bronson: Do you believe in Jesus? Punk: (nervously) Yeah, yeah Charles Bronson: Well, you're going to meet him (Shots fire from Bronson's gun)</i> <div align="justify"><p><b>Awesome Movie, after somany years I thought to grab in some of my Husbands Movie collection and found some very interesting Movies like these. After many years I had watch it I totally forgot how brutal this Movie is. Charles Bronson was great Actor. Too Bad he was underated after the "Western Era" not many Folks gave his Movie nor him the attention he deserved. Rather than Clint Eastwood, Charles Bronson will stay on my "Bad Ass Legends list" No.1 . Husband said the Part 1,3 and 4 were even Brutal. I think I ll watch Part 3 someday.
