DEATH WISH 3 (super magnum) (1985 U.S.) D: MICHAEL WINNER W: MICHAEL EDMONDS P: MENHAEM GOLAN/YORAM GLOBUS
In this ridicilous yet entertaining sequel (the last in the series directed by co-producer Winner), Bronson defends an N.Y.C. tenement building from a vicious, unrelenting street gang (led by Gavan O'Herlihy, Dan O'Herlihy's son). The crime-ridden borough becomes a war zone in the finale as Bronson cleans the streets of scum with a big machine gun (he even uses a missile launcher)! Coverted vigilante residents join in with their handguns! Fun trash as it is, but a shame that the MPAA enforced cuts for an R rating. With Martin Balsam, Ed Lauter, Alex Winter (his feature debut) and future STAR TREK: TNG crew member Marina Sirtis (briefly topless during a rape scene). Parts of this Cannon release were shot in London.
