Death Wish II DVD

By 1982, crime rates were still high enough to warrant another "Death Wish" film. Enter "Death Wish 2," a picture that finds New York City vigilante Paul Kersey pulling up roots from the place of his first exile (Chicago) in order to head to sunnier digs in Southern California. Los Angeles provides our architect with a new outlook on life, a place where he can tend to his still mentally and physically damaged daughter Carol (Robin Sherwood in this outing) and his new girlfriend Geri Nichols (Jill Ireland). In fact, Paul and Geri hope to wed one day. Unfortunately, a curse falls on the House of Kersey when a crew of mangy vermin, the most important member being Cutter (Laurence Fishburne), invades our hero's bungalow. The gang brutalizes Kersey's maid Rosario and abducts the shattered Carol. In the process of submitting Paul's daughter to an indignity nearly identical to the horrors she suffered in the first film, the poor young lady takes her life by plunging out of a warehouse window. Predictably, Kersey arrives home to find a deceased Rosario stretched out in the hallway and his daughter gone. Within a few minutes the authorities break the sad news to Paul; they found his daughter's body outside of a known gang hideout. The horrors of New York are starting all over again, and Paul Kersey must once again go forth and battle the forces of evil.

Unlike in the first film, Kersey specifically targets the criminals responsible for the slaying of his daughter. He finds out where they hang out and rents a grungy hotel room in the area to serve as a base of operations. Every night Paul drives down there, dons a knit cap and dark duds, and roams the streets looking for riffraff.

This is the cut R-rated version of the film - and this despite the fact that an uncut HD master of the film is available from both Netflix and Amazon!

I think that on principle all cut films should be boycotted, so please give this release the wide berth it deserves.

Why couldn't the publisher give the viewer the option of watching the R-rated or uncut version of the film? This kind of laziness deserves to be published.

Also, early reviews of this release suggest that the new HD print has not been used. - A-V-O-I-D !!!

REASONS TO BUY:
Unlike the first part, Bronson has a strong unyielding character. He's not the least bit afraid to get the job done this time and doesn't stop untill he gets every single on of those creeps that killed his daughter. It really gives you a sense of staisfaction even if it's just a movie.
REASONS NOT TO BUY:
This is the cut version. Evidently, some people believe that we are not intelligent enough to view certain scenes. I think it's worth the time to search the internet for the full uncut version.

This is the worst movie in the Death Wish series, without the relevance of the first movie or the sheer stupid-but-highly-entertaining mayhem of Part 3. Mostly, this film shot itself in the foot by going overboard on the rape scenes. But, to see exactly *how* overboard they went, you'll have to dig up an old version, because what's on the DVD is missing about 5 minutes. I haven't watched the entire DVD yet, but I noticed some things missing around the beginning and so I went back and checked the ancient videotape I made of a Cinemax showing years and years ago, and the running time on that was 94 minutes and 40 seconds (according to my VCR's counter, anyhow). The DVD clocks in at about 89 minutes.
I'm usually strongly against anything being cut out of a movie, but considering that at least some of the stuff that's missing from this DVD consists of parts of the extremely repulsive and protracted rape scene at the beginning of the movie, I don't really mind so much, because I don't mind if I never see that stuff again. I'm not a big fan of rape scenes in general, but understand that sometimes you have to have them to advance the plot. But in its original form, that rape scene was so overboard that it was overkill, and nothing Charlie could do to those guys later on would be satisfactory payback. So, the film may actually be improved by a little "toning down" in that area - what's left more than does the job of making you hate these scumbags, and you'll still be happy to see 'em gunned down.
Still, even though I can't imagine even the sickest viewers getting much out of that scene and can't imagine anybody missing it, I still figured people should be made aware that the DVD is trimmed a bit.

THE MOVIE- **** ½

EXTRAS- 0
TRANSFER- ****
AUDIO- ****

A lot of people are giving this a low rating due to the fact it's the R rated cut and not the uncut version and while I also would have preferred the uncut version the fact the quality of the movie is light years ahead of the DVD I can be a little forgiving. I haven't seen the uncut version so I don't know how much it changes the film. The uncut version of the original My Bloody Valentine does change the tone of the film whereas Friday the 13th barley does if it does. Even the R cut if this film is rather dark and disturbing and even if edited it doesn't feel tame. It's unfortunate that we didn't get the uncut or the very least the option on the disc, but like I said the film is still dark enough and doesn't feel tame and again quality is so strong compared to the DVD I can look past it.

Apparently on MGM HD Death Wish II airs uncut so that's a little frustrating that if there is an existing HD master of it uncut why not include it?

THE MOVIE
Excellent movie that follows the formula of the original and while it is sort of a rehash, but yet still works well. This film may not reach the heights of the original, but with that said its still a great film. Perhaps my rating of the film is too high, but it's such an entertaining flick I'll stand by it.

PACKAGE DESIGN
I would have preferred the original artwork, but the new one does have that retro look rather than modernized.

TRAILER- 1:54 (SD)
No need to explain this.

TRANSFER
My 4-star rating may be a little high and perhaps my rating is a little higher than it deserves, but I do have my reasons.
