Storyline

A vicious corporation tries to kill and starve the last remaining habitants of the Bronx in order to build their own high-rise developments. A lone long-haired, hot-tempered warrior, Trash, is his only obstacle. Trash, a psychopathic bomb-maker and his equally psychopathic preschool son and an annoying activist help him out by kidnapping "the President" (of the corporation), a Richard Dreyfuss look-alike. Henry Silva plays another psychopath, this one on the side of the corporations. A favorite movie of Mystery Science Theater 3000 series. Written by Jonah Falcon <jonahnynla@mindspring.com>

Alternate Versions

The recent German EMS DVD release reinstates nearly all the scenes missing from the Media entertainment and "Escape 2000" versions and has slightly more gore than the British version (marginally longer flame deaths and the full Hostages Rigged With Bombs scene) but is inexplicably missing two scenes from the British release. Strike hitting the Disinfestor's helmet visor is completely missing, not just trimmed and President Clarke gets shot once not twice. See more »

More Ultra-Trash From Castellari
14 February 2008 | by Witchfinder-General-666See all my reviews

Enzo G. Castellari definitely is a gifted director of Westerns (such as "Keoma"), Crime flicks (such as "Street Law") or War cinema ("Deadly Mission"). His extremely trashy 'Bronx' films are definitely no highlights of his career, more precisely they are about as dumb as films get, but they're nevertheless highly entertaining pieces of trash cinema."Fuga Dal Bronx" aka. "Escape From The Bronx" of 1983 is the even trashier sequel to the, already very trashy "1990: The Bronx Warriors" (1982), which was only made to cash in on the success of films like "Escape from NY" or "The Warriors. This is, on the one hand, even sillier than its successor, but on the other hand even more action-packed and entertaining, and a film that Italian Trash enthusiasts should not miss.

10 years after the events in "1990: The Bronx Warriors", the owner of a company is planning to tear down the hellish gangland of the Bronx, in order to build a new Utopian center of New York. Officially, the inhabitants are offered houses in New Mexico, but they are really forced out of their neighborhood by extermination squads lead by the unscrupulous Floyd Wrangler (the great Henry Silva), who has ordered to kill everybody who refuses to leave. Tough biker and former gang leader Trash (Mark Gregory, who played the same role in the first film), decides to fight back...

The story is even more forgettable than in "Bronx Warriors", but the constant violent action in "Fuga dal Bronx" makes up for the moronic plot. It's an enormous number of explosions and violent killings as well as the wonderful trash-feeling that makes this film worthwhile. Although this film was made only 1 year after its successor, Mark Gregory fits in his role quite well now. I didn't like him in the first film, since he still looked like a teenager, and even though the guy is not much of an actor, he fits in the role of Trash quite well now. In exchange for the true stars of the first film, Fred Williamson and Vic Morrorw, "Escape From The Bronx" features one of the greatest icons of Italian genre cinema, Henry Silva, as the villain. All things considered, I wouldn't generally recommend "Fuga dal Bronx", but it is definitely worthwhile for my fellow fans of trash flicks. Enjoyable for fans!
