After his girlfriend’s daughter dies at the hands of drug pushers, Paul Kersey decides to take down the whole crime network that supplied the drugs to her. This leads to him taking on the local Mafia.


OK, so this isn’t too different from the plot-lines of previous entries in the franchise, but it’s still VERY entertaining. That’s not bad going for the fourth entry in a film series.

There are big guns, Bronson being kick-ass and syn drums on the soundtrack. In other words, the ingredients for a great night’s entertainment.


It’s also a Cannon film. There’s also a Leatherface standee visible in one scene as, of course, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 was also from the Cannon stable.


Though not as good as any of the Death Wish films that preceded it, I could think of plenty of sequels from other franchises that are much worse than this.

3 stars out of 5
