DEATH WISH 5 - THE FACE OF DEATH is a really good action-thriller (better than part 4!) and a descent ending to my favorite movie series of all time. The story is pretty much the same as usual. Bronson's girlfriend, Olivia Regent is attacked and killed by mobster Tommy O'Shea (a brilliant performance by Michael Parks, by the way). That's enough for Bronson to turn vigilante.

Good directing by Allan Goldstein, this movie is surprisingly suspenseful! Also they way Kersey takes out some of the mobsters is quite interesting and made me smile more than once with cool puns all the way. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED and unfortunately the last Bronson film made for the big screen. Bronson is (was) in top form - although well over 70!

Most people don't even know there was a Death Wish 4, let alone a Death Wish 5: The Face of Death, and not without good reason. Made primarily for the video market and shot on the ultra-cheap in Canada standing in for New York by the director of 2001: A Space Travesty (Bronson's salary accounted for more than half the budget and from the results it doesn't look like he was paid that much), its sole distinctions are the lowest body count in the series and in being Bronson's last theatrical feature. It feels more like a Death Wish ripoff where the producers suddenly found out they could afford Bronson and gave it a quick rewrite, with Kersey now in the witness protection programme back in New York happily engaged to Lesley Anne Down's fashion designer and bad Joan Collins impersonator. You just know how that will end up, especially since her ex-husband is Michael Sacks' mobster, who seems to be basing his performance on William Shatner impersonating Jack Nicholson in Prizzi's Honor.

It's not long before Robert Joy's transvestite enforcer with dandruff is scarring her face to prevent her testifying to Saul Rubinek's DA and not that long before Bronson's much younger stunt man with different colored hair is dodging bullets and she's giving him another excuse to take the law into his own hands after taking flying lessons off the roof. A puffy Bronson is starting to look so like Oliver Hardy when he smiles you almost expect him to say "That's another fine killing spree you've gotten me into," and with newspaper headlines like `Chicki Paconi killed by Canoli' it's clear that the film aspires to a more comedic approach. It doesn't succeed. It's just about watchable if you're grimly determined to make it through the entire series, but there's little here to repay the effort.

Death Wish V: The Face of Death is a hard movie to describe. It's easily the best Part 5 I've ever seen, beating out such stiff competition as The Dead Pool, Rocky V, Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, Zombie 5: The Killing Birds (does that count?), A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child, Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Diary of the Dead...you name it, this is better, for what it's worth. (If "The Empire Strikes Back" really counts as a Part 5 and not a Part 2, well...). It might be a bit too overdone for some fans, a bit too brightly-coloured, early 90s, a bit too serious for this late in the game, but it really is a very good effort and the best end to the series one could hope for (except the final teaser ending), nicely balancing the elements of all of the previous films, with a serious, plot driven first half and a slightly less serious last half, with grim wisecracks and murder set pieces.

While not exactly a direct sequel, the film does take it's cues from Death Wish 4 in a number of ways: Kersey tackles organised crime again, he uses gadgets and ingenuity more than brute strength or a gun, plot makes a return. Even plotwise, Kersey is now in the Witness Protection Programme after the events of Part 4. I guess the police still doesn't want to make a martyr out of him with a trial, but knew the organised crime elements in LA would put a whack on him sooner or later. Even the subtitle "The Face of Death" is a Death Wish 4 reference - in his dream, Paul calls himself "death". Continuity is further maintained with Kersey's predilection for dark blue leather jackets, as shown in Death Wish 3 and 4.

Direction is really good, possibly the best in the series, at least after part 1.

im a massive fan of the death wish series with the the 1st,2nd and 3rd being the best. the 4th was gud too in a cheesy eighties kinda way. part 5 is enjoyable although it has its flaws and bronson does look older but its still fun to see him wipe out the bad guys in different ways. if ur a bronson fan then its definately worth a watch
