“They killed The Giggler, man!”
“They had no business doing that. None.”
When his friend is beaten to death by a group of thugs, vigilante Charles Bronson steps in to take revenge. Granted permission by the police to kill punks at will, our hero engages in all-out warfare (via mail-ordered rocket launcher) against a reverse-mohawked ganglord and his band of war-painted goons (including Alex Winter in his debut performance).
One of the most sublimely bizarro riffs on Dirty Harry ever filmed, with a body count that may very well surpass the entirety of Ran, as Bronson walks the streets like an outlaw in his own private shooting gallery, dispatching creeps with obvious glee. “The New York of Death Wish 3 is like a real-world The Warriors crossed with a paranoid right-wing small-towner’s vision of big-city menace: a gang-infected war zone, lorded over by the cast of Breakin’. It’s crazy, it’s violent, it’s altogether stupefying.” – Scott Tobias, The A.V. Club
