Goofs

Before Charles Bronson exits the bus after following the three thugs at approx. 58:50, he pushes the button for the bus to stop at the next stop. The bus stops and he gets off of the bus. As the camera shows the outside of the bus, there is no bus stop at that location. See more »

Punks shouldn't enter Kersey's Matrix
26 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
