"Vigilante, city style -- Judge, Jury, and Executioner"

18

  • Director: Michael Winner
  • Genre: Drama, Action & Adventure, Classics,
  • Studio: Paramount
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 100 Mins

Overview:
This is the highly controversial sleaze epic that finally made Charles Bronson a star in America, and set a regrettable trend for trashy and ultra-violent vigilante thrillers. Bronson mechanically plays liberal architect Paul Kersey, who takes matters into his own hands after his wife is killed and his daughter is raped by a Manhattan gang (led by Jeff Goldblum in his film debut). Director Michael Winner's blood-lusting shocker is as intense and upsetting as it is morally reprehensible, and was very infuential in its day, but spawned a series of dismal sequels.
