Reasons why this movie rules

This simply wondrous work of pure celluloid art deserves much better than the usual synopsis and critique format. So instead I'm just going to list reasons why this picture rules. 1) Charles Bronson as the ever-unflappable Paul Kersey is the very epitome of stoic, laconic and unflappable vigilante cool; this guy not only kills countless low-life criminal scum with a winning mix of style and ingenuity, but also sports one hell of a snazzy mustache to boot. 2) The street gang featured in this flick is a pretty mean and colorful bunch: Gavan O'Herlithy as vicious leader Fraker (you just have to love his gnarly reverse Mohawk haircut), a pre-"Bill and Ted" Alex Winter as the sleazy Hermosa, Ricco Ross as speed-snorting psycho Cuban, and, best of all, the incredible Kirk Taylor as swift, maniacal, chortling klepto the Giggler. Moreover, the gang is multi-racial, which enables the filmmakers to treat us to the touching and inspiring sight of various whites, blacks and Hispanics gleefully engaging in rape, murder, robbery, extortion, destruction of private property, and other such no-count nasty antics. 3) The dialogue is sheer cut-to-the-bone terse and eloquent poetry. Martin Balsam as tough World War II veteran Bennett Cross bellows the following heart-shattering lines as he watches his beloved place of business go down in flames: "My shop! My shop! That's my shop!" 4) Deborah Raffin as feisty public defender Kathryn Davis supplies some mighty fetching eye candy. Alas, after Raffin becomes romantically involved with Bronson the poor gal gets bumped off by the bad guys. Boy, now isn't that a shocking and unexpected plot development?

5) This no-holds-barred fierce and unflinching flick declares open season on everyone: pretty young women are raped (including foxy future "Star Trek: The Next Generation" TV series regular Marina Sirtis), little old ladies are brutally butchered, countless evil street slime are blown away, folks are set on fire, and Fraker even gets blasted into the next dimension with a rocket launcher. If raw, savage and over-the-top violence is your thing, then this movie is your crack, baby! 6) The acting is truly Oscar-worthy. Special kudos here to Joseph Gonzalez as Rodriguez; the scene with Gonzalez punching a table with tremendous angst and fury after he's told that his wife has just died is positively gut-wrenching in its stark poignancy. 7) Bronson packs plenty of heavy artillery. Besides the aforementioned rocket launcher, Charlie also uses a Wildey automatic and a vintage Browning machine gun to waste the villains left and right. 8) Legendary rock musician Jimmy Page whips up an exceptionally funky-jammin' jazz-rock fusion score. 8) Director Michael Winner treats the laughably ludicrous material with deliriously misguided seriousness, thereby ensuring that the cartoonish carnage rates as often sidesplitting and always entertaining high camp at its all-time most gloriously absurd and wildly implausible. The last third with the already cruddy urban cesspool neighborhood degenerating into an all-out war zone is the hilarious stuff total kitsch is made of. A true 80's action masterpiece.

only a B-movie left

Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) returns back to NYC to visit an old friend Charley. He is murdered by a gang of street thugs. Paul arrives just in time to be arrested by the cops. Police inspector Richard Shriker (Ed Lauter) remembers Paul as the vigilante and decides to turn a blind eye to him doing his thing as long as he works for him. In jail, Paul runs afoul of Fraker (Gavan O'Herlihy) and his men. Kathryn Davis (Deborah Raffin) is his public defender. Bennett (Martin Balsam) is Charley's friend.

The gang is strictly 80s cheese. These are really silly cartoon characters. It's just thugs in a messed up neighborhood. It's nameless thugs with nameless victims. There is barely a story. There is barely a setup. It's nothing more than an isolated settlers in enemy territory. The franchise is only left with a B-movie. They even bring in a 60s motorcycle gang in the end when they burn down and blow up lots of stuff. At least, the whole place gets shot up in a violent orgy.

Mindless action trash classic!

This ultra-hilarious propaganda for the suburban masses sees 64 year-old Charlie Bronson turned into an indestructible hero in the Sly Stallone or Arnie Schwarzenegger mould, massacring evil gang members and turning a neighbourhood into an urban war zone! You know the cards are stacked in your favour when the director is the distasteful Michael Winner, shooting his film in a London which doubles for New York (!), and the producers are the dreaded Golan/Globus combination from Cannon films. The realism and seriousness of the first two films are gone, replaced by an extraordinarily high body count, tons of action and death, and lots of stock cardboard cut-outs replacing live actors and real people. My god, this film is a masterpiece for all the wrong reasons!

Right from the start the action begins with a trio of sadistic thugs (one of whom is played by a pre-stardom Alex Winter) beating and killing an old guy who happens to be Bronson's pal. Bronson winds up being blamed for the crime (why?) and chucked in jail where he fights off young, muscular bad guys - we see him doing press-ups and therefore are supposed to believe he's still capable of beating multiple opponents in hand-to-hand combat! Later Bronson hooks up with a police guy - the familiar Ed Lauter - and becomes a professional vigilante, moving into the neighbourhood from hell and helping the ageing residents fight back. What follows are lots of self-defence bits and pieces - amusing traps at windows, Bronson chasing and killing would-be muggers, plus a gratuitous rape sequence (Marina Sirtis is the victim here) thrown in for good measure. A new girlfriend comes and goes but the formula is still the same. The bad guys fight back, lots of innocent folk get killed or injured, and finally Bronson retaliates big time.

The film is unintentionally amusing throughout, packed with continuity errors and revealing mistakes. Half the fun comes from spotting them. The script is full of clichéd dialogue or stock one-liners and the acting on the most part is dreadful. Bronson the somnambulist sleepwalks through the part whilst old-timer Martin Balsam is brought in for name value alone and suffers his name dragging through the dirt. The only really good performance is from Gavan O'Herlihy as the sadistic gang leader Fraker, a real bastard. The rest of the performers are just cannon fodder on both sides waiting to be cut down. After lots of shoot-outs, chases and explosions, the film concludes with an incredible over-the-top war between the street thugs and Bronson and his newly-armed neighbours. Motorbike gangs raid through the estate, demolishing and exploding buildings all over, and burning victims are machine-gunned in cold-blood. Women and children are shot and killed and the police massacred on arrival. Through the madness walks Bronson and his ethnic buddy, dodging bullets that just can't miss at every stage and calmly blasting down bad guys like the ending of COMMANDO. Dummies fly off rooftops, blood sprays and even a rocket launcher is brought into play. It's amazing stuff and a real surprise to find such a mindless action trash classic emerging from such a one-serious series. I say check this one out.
