In the opening scene inside the radio station, a drop-and-pull date calendar visible through glass in an office gives the date as MAY 18 Monday. Later in the film, radio news reports indicate that the Point Fermin shootout occurred on May 14th, and courtroom testimony indicates Charles Wilson's capture occurred on May 15th. See more »
Of all the Death Wish sequels, this was the best. I think once they got to up part 3 with all the machine guns and rocket launchers, then it started to get a little stupid. The story almost has an identical plot outline as the first one and the action is just as good, if not, then even better. The shootout at San Pedro park was awesome!!! The only difference is that they make Paul Kersey have more emotional interaction with the creeps he kills which makes it seem to be more "Hollywood". In the first Death Wish, Kersey would just kill them stone cold without having a conversation. That's why the original was so good as so realistic.
