Charles Bronson brings out the heavy artillery in this gun-blazing, no-holds-barred thriller! Paul Kersey (Bronson) longs to leave his fighting days behind him. But when he arrives in New York to visit an old friend, he finds him gasping for breath in a pool of blood! Now the silent avenger must wage war once more on the city's punks, thugs and hoodlums.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Death Wish 3 may well be Michael Winner's seminal work, finally breaking free of the chains of logic or narrative that had confined his earlier work to explode in an orgy of wildly improbable violence where he stages World War Three in a New York neighborhood besieged by gangs, with the combatants assorted street punks and elderly, mostly nice Jewish couples. Those kids never stood a chance...

For the first hour it's just a deceptively shonky vigilante movie, with Winner going through the motions as Ed Lauter's disillusioned cop, having first wrongly arrested Charles Bronson's vigilante for the murder of one of the few people in the film he doesn't kill, had him beaten up and thrown in the tank, then decides to set him loose on a problem neighborhood. Charlie fits right in with the assorted senior citizens and stereotypes who make up the put-upon locals, and it's not long before he's rigging booby traps in their houses to maim or disfigure would-be home invaders, shooting bag snatchers in the back or interrupting dinner with Mr and Mrs Kaprov to kill a couple of punks trying to steal his car stereo before returning to finish off the meal of delicious cabbage soup. None of which pleases Gavan O'Herlihy's local gang leader who sports an interesting anti-Mohican hairstyle and it's not long before far more locals are meeting horrible deaths than when the gangs had a free hand before Charlie moved in.

I know that Michael Winner got his start making comedies, then turned to making blunt and chilling action movies such as The Stone Killer, The Mechanic and the first Death Wish. However Death Wish 3 is so over the top that I have to wonder if Winner wasn't winking at the audience - and one or two scenes seem to be making some kind of satirical statement about this kind of entertainment catharsis. Paul Kersey returns to New York City to visit an old war buddy, but finds his friend dying from a beating given by the local thugs. Kersey is arrested and, while in the local jail, has a run in with the gang leader, a psychotic named Fraker (played with just the right amount of swagger by Gavan O'Herlihy). The police chief (Ed Lauter) is so frustrated with Fraker's gang running (and ruining) the neighborhood that he releases Kersey and wishes him happy shooting. "You're turning me loose?" Kersey asks. "I'm turning you loose." The cop replies. What follows is a series of action set pieces that build to a riot in a payback hungry world gone mad. As many others have noted, this movie is utterly over the top and quite laughter inducing. I cannot tell if it is truly meant to be a subtle parody of Death Wish/urban warfare movies or if it is so stupid that it just plays that way. Did Michael Winner not do his job, or did he do it too well? Watch, enjoy, and decide for yourself. Highly recommended and an essential for both Bronson and/or bad movie fans everywhere.

DEATH WISH 3 is, for its time, an extremely violent movie. Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) is a seemingly placid soul who goes about killing several hundred thugs and crooks in 1980's NYC. The "plot" finds Kersey returning to NYC where he visits an old war buddy, whom Kersey finds dying on his apartment floor, a victim of intruding gangs. Having lost his friend, Kersey decides to move into his buddy's old apartment and take up a war against the gangs overrunning the neighborhood. I wouldn't even say this is a tale of revenge, because you never get the sense that Kersey gives a damn about his friend's death. It's basically an invitation to kill, something Kersey accepts when a police commissioner asks for "help" in thinning out the criminal herds.

Kersey, a character born from the "silent majority" of the Nixon Era, has no character arc, no narrative, no place to go where he will eventually find peace. This movie is a showcase for violence-- funny, absurd, over-the-top violence. Whether on purpose or not, there are several classic moments that make this movie worthwhile. And Bronson's deadpan delivery makes his sparse dialogue memorable. This is crude, terrible filmmaking that I greatly enjoyed to the very end.

Format: VHS Tape
"This time it's war" is the slogan for Death Wish 4, but I think that would really apply to this one. When you hit the last twenty mintues or so of this film, it does turn to all out war! This has got to be the most blown-out-of-proportion sequel of all time next to the second Rambo film. Bronson's no longer prowling the streets and taking out punks here and there-This time he literally has an all out war with them! Coming back to NY, he finds his Korean war buddy murdered. This is the catalyst for another bloodbath, but he gets the green light when this "dude" talking cop tells(actually he threatens) Bronson to start up again. The neighborhood is completely overrun by gangs with reversed mohawks. In fact, this neighborhood makes south central LA look like Beverly Hills. But Bronson's in town now! Well, these schmucks should know by now that you don't mess with this man. Bronson goes toe to toe with the gang leader who likes to get "High! High! HIGH!", along with other assorted punks including Bill S. Preston-Esquire from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. By the last act, the neighborhood turns into a war zone between punks and apartment residents. Considering the place looked like a war zone to begin with, the surrounding communities don't seem to take notice. This film is pretty outrageous. It's like a comic book or a video game put on film. It's wild. It also has one of the funniest scenes I have ever seen in a film: Bronson buys a junker car, then parks it in front of his apartment and waits for someone to mess with it. He 's invited to dinner at the neighbor's house, and while eating he hears someone messing with the car. He goes outside and blows away the two guys stripping the car, then just walks back in and sits down to dinner. That is the definitive Bronson moment.Read more ›
