All Movie Guide
Charles Bronson made many outrageous action vehicles during his Cannon Films era, but this may be the most bizarre of the bunch. Death Wish 3 dispenses without any pretense toward believability in characterization, plotting, or dialogue as it once again puts the character of Paul Kersey through his urban-vigilante paces. The only new wrinkle comes with a plot thread in which the police chief (played in amusingly broad style by Ed Lauter) gives Kersey his under-the-table approval to go out there and start bumping off thugs for his police department and even that turns out to be a quickly dropped throwaway notion. On the plus side, the film does offer a decent supporting cast, which also includes Deborah Raffin and Martin Balsam, and director Michael Winner gives the proceedings a professional look and pace; however, the film's mechanical nature and absurd plotting make it impossible for the viewer to get invested in the story, especially when Kersey and his enemies turn the neighborhood into an urban war zone during an absurdly over-the-top finale. In short, the utter ludicrousness of Death Wish 3 may amuse bad-movie buffs but is likely to baffle anyone expecting a quality film.

    Classic Bronson

    That's right 5-stars for Death Wish 3. This is one of my very favorite movies of all time. Charles Bronson never really hit the big time until 1974 with Death Wish, while he was in popular movies he was always with a huge cast of stars so it's hard to stand-out. Death Wish gave Bronson box office gold, but sadly he was type-casted after that. Death Wish 3 is my favorite of the series. This movie is not meant to be taken serious. The final act has Bronson leading a war agaisnt a whole bunch of gangbangers, the cops are there and even the people are suddelny pulling out guns they have hidden and fighting back. In some areas one can see this movie as a spoof of the first Death Wish. Sit back and enjoy. Take the movie for what it's worth. I love this movie. A must see for action fans and Bronson fans. Best part is while eating dinner with friends he goes outside kills a couple of bad guys then goes back into the house to eat like nothing happened, and who could forget the Giggler. Did I say I love this movie?

    This is a great film

    Honestly i found this movie quite enjoyable. I couldn't tell if it was the gang members with their terrible aim using VERY accurate handguns or the simple yet effective booby traps Kersey sets up in the tenements, but this movie gave me a laugh almost every scene and i recommend it to any fan of action movies. When Bronson pulls out a LAW missile launcher from a package thats delivered to his apartment and explains to the neighbor of his murdered friend what it is, ANYONE watching that scene knew that true destruction was about to commence. ...priceless. Charles Bronson is the epitome of American justice.
