The Executioner revels in the post Bronson/Death Wish vigilante justice sub genre. With a very common story involving Vietnam veterans, crime, and dealing with living after the war, The Executioner Part II doesn't manage to tread any new ground. The story is boring, the acting is at times silly, over the top, and amateur, and the directing... well the Director himself has admitted to not actually directing a lot of the film due to having to work as the entire crew. Portions of the film are put together by the stunt men. Other portions just have the actors (some quite seasoned by this time) directing themselves. The only real saving grace here is there is plenty of action. Bad action, but lots of it. The opening Vietnam sequence has plenty of gunfire, helicopters and explosions. There is a ton of hand to hand fighting in the streets of LA. And as the execution of choice is via a handgrenade, a few bad guys get blown up as well.
The Executioner Part II is one of those films that really is only for lovers of really bad b-movie action films.
