Sincerely, The Rotten Tomatoes Team
A sequel that far surpasses its predecessor. Takes the original template and goes its own way. Fun B-Movie violence in a future dystopia. The lead actor improved a lot over the course of a year.
A cross between "Escape In New York" and "The Warriors" with Italian financing depicting the Bronx as a slums area with the mayors and representatives attempting to kill it's citizens off as opposed to re-locating.
Massive action, massive death, massive explosions. Can't ask for more.
Scrambled plot, uninteresting action scenes, and some bad acting. A fun bad movie, but a bad movie nonetheless.
GIVE US MORE TRASH, TRASH
Italian post apoc action at it's finest. Bad dubbing and acting, squibs and slo mo death scenes a plenty and lots of hilarious one shot blow-em-ups.
Several years after the events of 1990: The Bronx Warriors and Trash (Mark Gregory), former leader of the Riders gang is now a cynical loner, remaining in the impoverished, lawless wasteland of the Bronx and trading in stolen ammunition. The General Construction (GC) Corporation, led by President Clark (Enio Girolami), wish to tear down the Bronx to turn it into "the city of the future". To do this they need to clear the current population from the area and have employed expelled prison warden Floyd Wangler (Henry Silva) and a private squad of Disinfestors to burn, shoot and gas those that will not leave willingly. While the bums, vagrants and elderly are easy prey, the warrior gangs of the Bronx will not go quietly and a rebel army of all surviving Bronx gangs led by Dablone (Antonio Sabato) is holed up underground. When Trash's parents are burned alive by Disinfestors he begins to take revenge by leading ruthless guerrilla attacks on the clean up squads which in turn leads to the GC Corporation and Wangler trying ever nastier means of subverting the rebellion (such as rigging hostages with bombs). Trash, Dablone and a crusading reporter named Moon Gray (Valerie Dobson) then team up with psychotic mercenary Strike (Timothy Brent/Giancarlo Prete) and his equally crazy son Strike Jr (Alessandro Prete) to kidnap President Clark and put the Bronx back in the hands of the gangs...
Well, what can you say, this is yet another classic Enzo G. Castellari production and a sequel to "1990: The Bronx Warriors". It follows Castellari´s b-action movie formula with massive violence, dodgy acting, dodgy dubbing and interesting supporting roles, in this case Henry Silva. You can as well notice an homage to Sam Peckinpah in some of the action scenes. "Escape From The Bronx" is ok for what it is. No more, no less.
Like the original it's well shot, and there's a a good deal more action, although the plot is scaled back to almost nothing, and it lacks some of the charm of the first. Not a huge amount to say really. Lots of people dressed as specemen get shot/burned/blown up, Trash spends more time on the move or fighting than talking, and when he does say something he's just insulting. It's a good action movie set in a very unique looking broken location, but those looking for something deep or complex will be wasting their time.
A classic Bad Movie which features the genocide of the residents of the Bronx for the benefit of a corporation who wants to make the Bronx in to modern day high rises but the gangs of the Bronx unite to try and keep their turf!
Corporate owners plan to redevelop the now unihabitable Bronx and rebuild it as a slum free community. Locals are relocated to convenient locals like New Mexico and those refusing to go face flamethrowers. Great story, only decent execution.
