Movie Summary

Director:
Michael Winner
Released:
1982
Rating:
R
Death Wish 2 is the sequel to the popular take-matters-into-your-own-hands vigilante thriller which made Charles Bronson (Once Upon a Time in the West, The Magnificent Seven, Mr. Majestyk, Kinjite: Forbidden Subjects) a household name. Coming eight years after the original 1974 production, Paul Kersey is back as the architect armed with more than a T-Square! Bronson's wife was killed in the first film and his daughter viciously raped into a vegetable-like state. In this film she has improved. She's mute but is walking and functioning. Then it all happens again. A bunch of punks break into Bronson's home and, in an appropriately harrowing sequence, gang-rape his screaming, crying maid. Then when the woman, totally nude, tries to get to a phone to call for help they kick her to death. But the fun isn't over yet--they get Bronson's daughter and gang-rape her yet again causing her to jump out a window and get impaled on a fence. Then Bronson goes into vigilante mode.moreless

    What's most shocking about Death Wish II is the lack of artistry and skill in the filmmaking. The movie is underwritten and desperately underplotted, so that its witless action sce...
