Directed by: J. Lee Thompson

So the Death Wish continues, this is definitely drastically less entertaining than any of the Death Wish films preceding it unfortunately. This time Bronson just sees a Woman being attacked and starts going after the crooks. Then we meet his new girlfriend and her daughter, of course as he's starting to get adjusted the daughter overdoses and his war on drugs begins! This time the cops are sometimes involved and stuff so he's got everybody against him! It's still got a fair bit of violence of course, but it's beyond silly and the dialogue is absurdly bad. It's overly long and it seems completely uninspired, yet I didn't absolutely hate it or anything...stuff did blow up! Let's just say I'll probably still watch "Death Wish 5" but it won't be for quite a while.
Availability: On DVD
