Great 80's Action Flick!
24 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a movie itself, Exterminator 2 is pretty bad. But, that doesn't stop it from being an awesomely awful 80's action flick. Thanks to the Action Movie 4 Pack that was just released, Exterminator 2 has come to DVD. I'm a huge fan of the first movie- it was a great, brutal, visceral vigilante flick. The Exterminator was taking out the trash of the streets in crafty, violent, and satisfying ways. This time around, he has somehow donned a flamethrower.

The plot is fairly simple: Baddies are back at it in New York and the leader of a gang, X, wants to take over the city. The Exterminator, of course, gets involved and exterminates all the bad guys.

The movie has it's moments, but for the most part loses the gritty and grimy feeling the first had, and was so well known for. The soundtrack is hilarious; if I had been in a different room I would honestly think someone was playing Super Nintendo. I'm one hundred percent serious about that too, the soundtrack sounds like it was ripped *straight* from a Super Nintendo game, and I guarantee anyone who's played Super Nintendo will agree with me.

Though what the movie lacks compared to it's predecessor, it makes up with how fun it is. Robert Ginty all mocked up in a over-sized welder's mask and massive flamethrower frying the street scum for 90 minutes works well, but it becomes slow at times. The end showdown between The Exterminator and X is awesome, and makes up for the boring portions. Oh, and there's also a random, totally unnecessary sex scene, pushing the movie into the boundaries of "Stereotypical Action Movie" category.

Overall, this movie is fun by itself, and I'm sure a lot more fun with a couple buddies who are ready and willing to rip on it. I will certainly be bringing this flick to my next get together with friends, and I'm sure great times are to be had.
