This movie was Charles Bronson's second consecutive picture to feature the word 'Death' in the title. Bronson's previous movie was Death Hunt (1981). Bronson made seven movies with this word in the title, five of them being in the 'Death Wish' franchise. Messenger of Death (1988) was another example. The final time would be in Death Wish V: The Face of Death (1994), where the word appeared twice. See more »

Charles Bronson is back as Paul Kersey. After some punks (including a young Morpheus, Laurence Fishburne) get away with his wallet, they find his house. He's not home so they rape and kill the housekeeper. When Kersey and his daughter return, they knock him out and kidnap her. After raping her back at an abandoned warehouse, she jumps out the window, killing herself. Bronson being Bronson, it's time once again for revenge, while hiding it from his new girlfriend.Not as good as the original. As sequels rarely are. But I enjoyed it. Bronson as an actor just kicked so much ass.
My Grade: B
Eye Candy: Silvana Gallardo and Robin Sherwood show much flesh, but due to the subject matter, it's not really eye candy. Leslie Graves and Melody Santangello's topless scenes are more palatable.
