3.0 out of 5 stars You need a bath... 11 Feb 2014
So Paul Kersey is back, and this time he has yet another girlfriend.

As always, about halfway through the movie, she is killed by her ex-husbands gang, she is shot, and then turns into a man wearing a wig and falls off a roof.

Kersey copies her and jumps off the roof disguised as someone half his age and lands on some bin bags....

Time to take out the trash.

The first two death wish movies were serious, but very good. 3 and 4 were semi-serious, but really camp and very tongue in cheek. They were the epitome of Cannon films, and because of this, these were the most enjoyable.

This falls between the middle of the two movies. It's really serious, but the villain is way over the top, and when you have a henchman who has a dandruff problem, dresses up as a woman and finally gets killed by a remote controlled explosive football, there is some fun to be had.

But it takes a while to get there, and the first twenty or so minutes are a bit of a drag. It just doesn't feel like a death wish movie. Bronson is great as always, but the man was in his seventies.

If you can overlook this though, you get the funniest hit and run and go flying through the window scene, and of course the final act, which features a man being gift wrapped.

Not a bad film, but the fifth best Death Wish movie.

Directed by Allan A. Goldstein, And Charles Bronson is back as Paul Kersey taking on the mafia led by Tommy O'Shea
(Michael Parks). After 6 years since Death Wish 4, this is much better. Overall the Death Wish Films should be in your collection
It's a shame this was Charles Bronson's major film before his death he will be missed.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Should Have Ended After 3 16 Aug 2012
By DL Productions UK TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Lets face it, there are times when movies should just end, and this is definitely one where Charles Bronson should have said "no thank you" and walked away.

This time our friend Paul Kersey isn't just killing for his own vigilante wants, but for someone else's; one would even say this was a dangerous move. He's upset, because his new girlfriend Olivia is being harassed by her ex; a mobster who wants to make money from her fashion business. When Kersey finds it all disgusting, he decides it's time to go back to his old ways... but with age, police and other people against him, can he really do this 20 years on?

I didn't enjoy this sequel, and think it is an insult to Michael Winner's trilogy, which were good films in their own right. The direction is poor, and this just repeats other things from the last 4 Death Wish movies. Have to give Charles his due, he was 72 when this was made and shows great character and still does a good job of Paul, but really this script was poor, and it does feel lifeless. I also felt this was more revenge than vigilantism by Kersey- which does seem to go back to Death Wish II's philosophy - but nowhere as good.

If you're a DW fan I think you'll be disappointed, OK, Dirty Harry pulled off a later sequel but it was nowhere as good as Dirty Harry from 1971; this goes the same for the Death Wish franchise, plus a change of director is never a good move. I feel MGM were just trying to cash in on it.

The DVD is widescreen, which should please fans - also it's been remastered which is probably good news for fans too. I found the colours, sound and presentation to be good and of high quality, shame the film was not much cop.

Guess you have to love the franchise to watch this, as it's the worst of the lot. The best have to be the first 2.
