5.0 out of 5 stars STUNNING STUNNING- Did I say STUNNING?, 14 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vigilante [1983] (NTSC) [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] (DVD)
Oh my what a film. Exploitation, violence in downtown New York, a family torn apart, muggings, shootings, politicans as drug ring leaders, a near ten minute car chase, more muggings, more shootings, pimps, gore, Fred Williamson, Robert Forster, Joe Spinell (underused), a brutal messed up gang and a barnstorming soundtrack from yesteryear- Vigilante is supreme, it is fantastic, its gritty, horrible, nasty and a joy to watch.

Williamson stands out in perhaps his best role as the leader of a vigilante group who are fed up with crime in the big apple. William Lustig directs very well. Its the type of film you will own and have a smile plastered on your face and be proud to say that not too many people know about this little gem, which is in fact a crime of its own.

What a movie! If you love violent exploitation movies with a very subtle comedy overtone this is an essential purchase, I loved every 89 mins of it.

Go get it!

Funny how Amazon, have listed this a U certificate for this film.
Maybe The Exterminator [Blu-ray] will be given a PG
Vigilantee is often over looked which is a shame.
Blue Underground, do a good job on their releases.
Glad this was released by them as region free. And not released by Shout Factory,who region lock their blu ray releases.
