Trivia

Original ending in rough cut of the movie was different than the one which was filmed during re-shoots and used in final version. Instead of the chase scene between John and X in the factory, both of them confront each other after John kills all of X's gang members and get into the fight. X almost kills John but Caroline shows up in her wheelchair (she didn't die in original cut, scenes where John finds her dead body were also filmed during re-shoots with Ginty's stand-in) and shoots X, wounding him. When police shows up, John puts X into the garbage truck and chase starts between him in his truck and police cars. Chase ends with John crashing the garbage truck into the river and X's dead body floating out of it. Some behind the scenes footage included in old making of documentary shows filming of the fight scene between John and X in original ending. See more »

violent vigilante sleaze...
4 June 2003 | by b-man-1See all my reviews

Exterminator 2 (1984) tells the story of Vietnam vet John Eastland, the famous New York flame-thrower wielding vigilante from the first film (The Exterminator (1980)) In this sequel, John meets up with a new friend,Bee-Gee, a garbage man, and then gets a job as a garbage man, and starts to go out with a dancer from a night club. (John's life must be really good!) But, when his dancer-girlfriend is attacked by a ruthless street gang led by X, John decides he must take revenge. This is overall a remake of the first film, directed by Mark Buntzman (who produced the first Exterminator) As a whole, this is not a bad sequel. Original,no. Action packed,no. But it is a fun movie with actor Robert Ginty returning as John Eastland, and one of the first (if not the first) film role by Mario Van Peebles. Also look out for Arye Gross-star of House II:The Second Story. The movie appeared that it could have been very violent and fairly gory like the first one, but this seems unfortunately cut and toned down for the R-rating. They should have made another exterminator movie...
