Under a new identity, Paul Kersey returns to New York City, seven long years after the events of Death Wish 4: The Crackdown (1987), to attend the glamorous fashion show of his fiancée, Olivia Regent. However, Olivia's criminal former husband, Tommy O'Shea, has other plans in store for her, and after a deadly confrontation, Paul finds himself back to square one. Now, once more, with the police unable, or unwilling, to get to the bottom of this bloody case, it is up to Kersey, the grizzled messenger of death, and his snub-nosed, .357 Magnum Smith and Wesson Model 66 revolver, to right a wrong, and see to it that justice is served. Is there an escape from Kersey, and the face of death?Written by

This is bullshit!
What's that? What's that, man?
It's bullshit! So are you!
Hey, man! I makes you the head nigger and you talk to me like that?
Fuck you, you son of a bitch!
[Sal and Chuck grab Reg, Sal takes out a knife]
Reg, that was really stupid. You've got a big mouth. Now, apologize to the man.
I ain't saying shit!
Ah now, Reggie, you know damn well if you don't say shit, you'll lose ninety percent of your vocabulary.

Excellent, with plenty of good clean violence.
I am a great fan of the Death Wish films as I love to watch Bronson knocking off one by one the scum of society. My favourite is the number III by a long chalk but this one isn't bad either. This one also has some very comical moments notably when Chickie dies when eating a cyanide flavoured "canoli" (whatever that may be !!). Also, what is interesting here is when Bronson gets rid of the scum using different methods than just the usual old "gun". In this vein, I liked most the radio-controlled football which blew apart Flakes' face, and the death of the villain at the end in the acid bath when we see his flesh melting away off the face in the acid.
The only reproach I would make to the film are its picture and sound quality ( on the dvd at least ). These are really not up to scratch for a film made in the 1990's.
I eagerly await the day when Death Wish 3 and Death Wish 4 will be available on dvd. Bronson is truly a great actor, whatever the role he plays, but he is especially effective in the part of a vigilante.
