This is a truly excellent 80,s masterpiece of action. The exterminator tells the story of JOHN EASTLAND, an ex-vietnam veteran who in the beginging, is a quite sane man, considering the effects of vietnam, gone berzerk after his best friend is paralised. The film decribes a law abiding man going mad at the crime ridding streets that seem to be a permanent obstacle.
Having seen enough after the attack of his friend by a gang of ruthless streetyobs, Eastland goes vigilante, in order to stop the streets becoming a mindless timebomb.
The exterminator is a truly wonderful action film for its time, considering the typical storyline for a deathwish movie. But it still delivers the thrill and excitement of any other action movie. All i say is .... give it a viewing.
