So I almost feel guilty really liking this one because well the first two seem quite serious and dark and awesome and this is entirely different. Oh it's still Paul Kersey finding a friend in a pool of blood then needing to take revenge. This time he stays in his dead friend's apartment and helps the other aged folks in the neighborhood take down the thugs (including Alex Winters!) and stand up for themselves. It's as violent as one could possible imagine, I mean they even give him a rocket launcher for cripes' sake! It's actually so over the top that it is really funny, just when you think gee I hope something will explode or that someone will eat it in a funny happens. It's entirely satisfying for a hilariously awesomely violent romp with nuttin' but killing!
