Empty-headed actioner

"You believe in Jesus? Well, you're gonna meet him."

Death Wish II arrived eight years after 1974's Death Wish (a smash-hit which apparently reduced the crime rate in New York City during its theatrical run!), and this sequel was clearly green-lit for the sole purpose of cashing in on the success of its predecessor. This is fundamentally a shameless rehash of the original Death Wish... read more

This is the film that introduced to the dark, mysterious, and beautiful world of low-budget exploitation/action/horror films when I first saw a chunk of it in November 2004 on AMC. Dark, eerie, slimy, and with a fantasticly 80s soundtrack and fantasticly 80s set of thugs, this film is a classic.

It's also the film that introduced me to my cinema hero Charles Bronson. The whole series ... read more

" “He’s doing this...for you.” After using himself as bait to rid New York City of its muggers in Death Wish (1974), Paul Kersey relocates to Los Angeles with his traumatised daughter, trying to wipe the slate clean, and bury the past. However, once again, Paul catches the eye of a new bunch of savage street thugs, and before long, rape and murder destroy his family. Now, armed with his unforgiving semi-automatic Beretta 84 pistol, Kersey prowls the filthy backstreets of L.A., eager "

Tier Ranking: The Worst Films of 1982 - 1983 (44 movies items)

"Critics didn’t care for the film, and for them it was too violent, and brutal and a poor man’s Dirty Harry. My thoughts? It’s not the best Destb Wish sequel, but it’s one of the better Death Wish sequels."

" Date: 11/20/2020 Viewed: Amazon Prime Re-Watch Note: I revisit the first Death Wish movie last year and I still consider it to be a great movie. I felt like revisiting the second Death Wish movie to see if it holds up or not. Sadly, The Shout Factory Blu-Ray is now out of print (I kick myself for not buying it earlier), but at least it's on Amazon Prime at the moment (As of 11/20/2020). After watching this movie again, I still enjoy it. Death Wish 2 is nowhere as great as the first movie, b"

"13.1, PC Mikäli yhtään muistan oikein muutama vuosi taaksepäin katsomaani Death Wishia, ei tämä jatko-osa ollut edeltäjänsä turhaa toisintoa. Ainakaan siinä mielessä, että tässä ammuskeltiin enemmän (?) ja sarjan siirtyminen 80-luvulle tuntuu ihan raikkaalta."
