I loved the first one, and I was shocked to find out that I love this one even more! We catch up with vigilante Paul Kersey as he tries to tend to his poor daughter (who suffered during the last film). He is mugged by some thugs who don't like it when he takes revenge. He doesn't get every last one of them, so they vow revenge. They find his daughter and their housekeeper and follow them home with disasterous result. Shortly Paul is back in action dosing out violent revenge! It really was action packed, tons of shootings and Kersey has nothing to live for anymore so he's more ruthless than ever! He's operating out of a hotel room in order to be close to downtown to find the thugs responsible, and boy is he mad. Definitely a high voltage action film that was enjoyable, filled with death and well I only wish the rest of the series will be as good as this one.
