Summary Review: Entertaining
Paul Kersey, New York architect and part-time vigilante, comes to LA to visit an old friend. Instead, he must avenge his death by fighting youth gangs.
Death Wish 3 is a very different film to it’s predecessors, whereas the first two movies were powerful urban drama’s about how a man can be driven over the edge as a result of violence this instalment goes all out as an action movie and disregards the social commentary for the most part.
Whereas in the previous film’s Bronson was hunting down muggers and rapists and disposing of them with his pistol in Death Wish 3 he gets hold of a gattling gun and buys a magnum and a military issue rocket launcher and lays waste to the scum of society by the bulk load. It might not be as realistic but it’s damn entertaining and is by far my favourite of the Death Wish sequels.
