Not the best in the franchise. Excellent Bronson.

Let's get onto the blu ray review this US disc is region free but please note there is a region A on the back of the box.

Soundwise this disc has dts-hd 1.0

The film is presented in 1.85:1 aspect ratio and sadly the special features only include a theatrical trailer.

The blu ray transfer of the film is very good vibrant colours and sharp pq.

On the negative side this disc is the R Rated version and not the unrated version. The cuts are in the 2 rape scenes and Paul Kersey's daughters death is cut. I agree with what the reviews below say about their should have been a choice on the disc to watch the unrated version as well as R rated.

Despite the cuts i still think this blu-ray is worth buying as i think it is the best death wish sequel we just need paramount to get round to releasing the original death wish on blu-ray.

I have ordered death wish 3 on blu-ray but haven't received it yet the reviews on hi-def digest and blu-ray.com are all good.

After a brief spurt of competence in the late 60s and early 70s, Michael Winner's inherent laziness took over in the 80s to such a degree that Death Wish II doesn't even look like it was made by the same people who made the first Death Wish. Flat lighting, clumsy editing, a hilariously overwrought score from Jimmy Paige and a feeling that everyone got so bored during the first take they rarely bothered to go for another, even in the censored version on DVD it seems clearly aimed more at the lascivious street scum Charles Bronson polishes off than the frustrated citizens with handguns who get pushed too far (again) - Winner sure does love him a rape scene, even in a heavily censored version (in the uncensored version he almost plays it as comedy). With novelist Brian Garfield so unhappy with how the first film turned out that he refused to sell the rights to his sequel Death Sentence (later filmed as an unrelated Kevin Bacon film), Winner got round it by reworking the plot of the first film but moving the action from New York to LA (Kelsey would commute between the two cities for the subsequent sequels). Unfortunately adding the ever-insipid Jill Ireland to the mix, it still just about passes muster even if it delivers a particularly underwhelming finale, and gains some points for the scene where Bronson's vigilante and Vincent Gardenia as the cop following him find themselves both being shot at by street punks, but it's a fair bet Laurence Fishburne is deeply embarrassed by his excruciatingly stereotyped street scum. It's certainly no match for the hysterically over the top Death Wish 3.

The UK DVD and US Bluray from MGM/UA are both of the cut R-rated version, though Shout Factory's US Region A-locked special edition Blu-ray includes both that cut and the original unrated international cut with an audio commentary by Paul Talbot, author of the excellent history of the Death Wish series Bronsonýs Loose!: The Making of the Death Wish Films, trailer, TV spot and stills gallery.

I thought the DVD would follow.
This is a waste of money when 2 and 3 can be acquired in the flesh on DVD for under £10

The UK DVD got deleted fast, probably because the film was cut in at least 15 places! There was so much cut, it didn't make much sense trying to follow the story. Buy either the double pack of Death Wish & Death Wish II from either amazon.fr (France) or from Australia.

This film is cash in on the success of the First Death Wish film that isn't a bad thing though and it is a fantastically sleazy film that really holds no punches.

Charles Bronson was born to play the part of Paul Kersey and yet again he plays the part to perfection. Unlike the original he actually gets to catch the people who are responsible for the loss of a family member and has honed his skills into a ruthless killer who has not pity/remorse for his unique form of justice.

For anyone who is interested in the Death wish series here are my personal rankings of the five films.

1) Death Wish - 5 Stars
2) Death Wish 3 - 5 Stars
3) Death Wish 2 - 5 Stars
4) Death Wish 4 - 3 Stars
5) Death Wish 5 - 3 Stars

The first 3 are cinema at it's finest for different reasons; the last 2 are watchable but without Bronson would probably be 2 stars.

The review below mentions he was duped by Amazon. The fact it states Region 1 on the listing lays blame at that person's lack of understanding of how DVD regions work not Amazon.

SAY NO TO THE REMAKE.

Dutch imported DVD is fully UNCUT. This is definitely the version to buy if that's what you are looking for. Trust me after buying several versions of this movie only to realise they were all uncut. This is the one!!
