Trish Van Devere,
(Incorrectly regarded as goof) Bennett shows Kersey an old US Browning .30 lMG in his cupboard. When the punks attack him, he suddenly takes out a German MG-42. Bennett did mention that he had 2 machine guns. See more »
[to Kersey, about the package just arrived in the mail]
What is it?
A LAWS missile launcher. Anti tank, anti personnel. These rounds are self propelling, armour piercing. The round arms three feet out of the barrel. Won't do me much good though, unless I can get them bunched...
All I got is a zip gun.
Well, we should get a few of them...

What a romp this is. The great Kersey (Charles Bronson), ignoring advice to lay low for a while (like ten years!), relocates his trigger finger and bad attitude to New York City.
A long sequence where Kersey runs the streets shooting at everything in sight redefines this as a crazy modern Western. All sense goes out the window and the angry vigilante's original reasons for revenge fade slowly into the bullet-ridden background.
You get exploded thugs, burning cars, bodies through glass, dozens of bullet-riddled corpses and a lurid directing style that is perfect for the material.
Not as fine as DEATH WISH 2, but fine, nevertheless.
