Product Description

New York City factory worker Eddie Marino (Robert Forster, Oscar(r) nominee for JACKIE BROWN) is a solid citizen and regular guy, until the day a sadistic street gang brutally assaults his wife and murders his child. But when a corrupt judge sets the thugs free, Eddie goes berserk and vows revenge. Now there's a new breed of marauder loose on the city streets, enforcing his own kind of law. Blue Underground is now proud to present VIGILANTE in a pristine new 2K High Definition transfer from the original uncut and uncensored camera negative!

Let's get one thing straight. VIGILANTE is not the type of movie that will satisfy those who dislike violent genre films.
It is, however, the kind of picture that will thrill any fan of DEATH WISH, ROLLING THUNDER, THE EXTERMINATOR or any other '70s / early '80s revenge flick that has vigilantism as its main theme.
The acting in VIGILANTE is of a high quality, superb even for an exploitation film. In particular, Robert Forster shines as an everyday working Joe driven to the brink by grief and circumstance. Fred Williamson was never better (and is unlikely to be), while Joe Spinnell steals your attention in his two scenes.
Anchor Bay's DVD release of the film is nothing short of miraculous. The movie has been lovingly restored via George Lucas' THX process and the widescreen presentation looks superb. But the jewel in the crown is the audio commentary. Director William Lustig and the three actors have a whale of a time recounting the film's shoot, and so does the listener.

This is one of those action flicks that punches you right in the stomach. The villians in this movie are so darned nasty, you actually feel physically sick watching them do their dirty deeds. (I did, at least.) This just makes it that much sweeter, though, when Fred Williamson and Robert Forster step to the scene and start whooping tail. Vengence at its finest. If you've got the stomach for serious action and some good old fashioned justice, this flick is for you. Leonard Maltin is a punk.

Is there anything more cinematically gratifying than seeing a pack of rabid, sadistic street punks getting exactly what they deserve on the alter of vigilante street justice? Probably, but I doubt many will argue the viscerally animalistic appeal of seeing some particular heinous thugs getting their heads handed to them vigilante style...which brings me to this film, Vigilante (1983), a relative late comer in the genre (who many believe started off with the very popular 1974 film Death Wish, starring Charles Bronson). Co-produced and directed by William Lustig (Maniac, Maniac Cop), who, incidentally, worked as an apprentice editor on the film Death Wish, Vigilante stars Robert Forster (Alligator, Jackie Brown) and exploitation film veteran Fred `The Hammer' Williamson (Mr. Mean, 1990: The Bronx Warriors). Also appearing is Rutanya Alda (The Deer Hunter), Richard Bright (The Godfather: Part III), Don Blakely (Brubaker), Joe Spinell (Forbidden Zone, Maniac), Carol Lynley (The Poseidon Adventure), Frank Pesce (Midnight Run), Steve James (The Exterminator), and legendary actor Woody Strode (The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance), who was pushing 70 at the time this movie was made, and looked about as fit as most men half his age.

As the film, touted as the `unrated director's cut', begins we see Fred Williamson's character (later we learn his name is Nick), laying it down for a group of people (and the audience) about how punks have taken over the streets. One gets a sense that he's `mad as hell, and he's not going to take it anymore'..."If you want your city back, you gotta take it! Dig it?!

Format: DVD
In the early 80's, there was a sprout of revenge/vigilante films released in America and Italy. I mean we had Death Wish 2, The Exterminator, Rolling Thunder and much much more. Vigilante actually comes out being one of the better of the group. We get the same basic story. A man gets his son murdered and his wife cut up by thugs so he sets out for a "Death Wish" to take them down. Like all the other revenge epics at the time, this is pretty good trashy entertainment. We get extreme violence and some great action, plus a great cheesy performance by Fred Williamson (should we expect anything different?). If you like Death Wish style films, then you must own this piece of low-budget american entertainment. The DVD release of Vigilante is also great. First of all we get the unrated/uncut version of the classic. On top of that we get a superb commentary with the director and almost the entire cast. Also thrown on is every trailer for the film throughout the world, even trailers that portray this film under different titles. Real Awsome! A great DVD package!

This is a review of the Blue Underground Blu-Ray release of VIGILANTE.

Forster steals the show here. I purchased this having already been a fan of William Lustig's 'Maniac Cop' series and also having been a fan of the original 'Death Wish'. This movie is the perfect combination of Lustig's saavy B-movie direction and the shocking but gratifying Death Wish-style revenge thriller. This is an unbelievable transfer that exploitation fans will love. Blue Underground delivers the goods, I guess it's good to be the boss!

You know I am not a fan of Fred Williamson and I thought this movie is probably another blame the Man movie but it's pretty good with some exceptions of blaming the lack of police presence.I really enjoyed the Movie and feel it can compete with Dirty Harry Series and Deathwish although in a secondary fashion.I Love the theme song which reminds me of John Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13(a mediocre Movie.)Theme song mixed with something else.I believe Williamson played the role right and the group is good,A very good action movie.
