      Juan Carlos Coto South Florida Sun-Sentinel In this by-the-numbers revenge fantasy, Bronson delivers the expected crash-and-bang picture (perfect for popcorn munching), but except for a catchy opening and some twists near the end, Death Wish 4 has few surprises. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 19, 2021 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures more like a overtly violent after-school special rather than a cathartic vigilante movie Rated: 3/5 Aug 22, 2012 Full Review Chuck O'Leary Fantastica Daily The best Death Wish movie since the first. There's more plot this time, and the bazooka finale won't be forgotten. Rated: 3/5 Oct 21, 2005 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jul 26, 2005 Full Review Steve Crum Kansas City Kansan Give up the revenge, too much already Rated: 2/5 Oct 23, 2004 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a decent-enough entry within a far-from-flawless series of movies.

      Liam D Continue the B movie style of the Cannon set of Death Wish movies. This does try at least to have an story and character depth but still is the typical formula Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/25/24 Full Review Rami A Give us a break with the revenge already. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/26/24 Full Review Jelisije J The best sequel from the Death Wish Series because the story was actually DIFFERENT. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/27/23 Full Review Audience Member I love Charles Bronson killing all the bad guys. Death Wish 2-4 is available on DVD for only $7.99 at Amazon. The movie is filled with non-stop excitement and Bronson killing the bad guys in some fairly creative ways. There are two plot twists with one of the detectives and a newspaper publisher, so the story isn't totally formulaic. I wish there were ten or more Death wish movies. They aren't great cinematically, but they are fun to watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member I grew up watching this movie and I find it absolutely fantastic. Charles Bronson at his best. Is the best movie of the Death Wish series afyer the 2nd film. Spectacular, great plot and so much violence! It's an iconic one, despite many bad reviews which I really don't understand. This movie, for those who loves Charles Bronson and "Dirty Harry" movies with Clint Eastwood, is absolutely orgasmic. Must watch! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Charlie B takes up the boom boom again in a poor follow up to the utterly ridiculous, but not totally unenjoyable, 'Death Wish 3' (the series changed to numbers because producers were afraid American audiences would be unable to understand Roman numerals!). This time the wisher for death takes on some L.A. drug lords and works his way through them in his usual manner, when his girlfriend's daughter dies from an overdose. Despite being the most ludicrous entry, 'Death Wish 3' was still a fun ride in a genuine "so bad it's good" vibe. Restraint being damned, Michael Winner took the reigns off of logic and sense and just let go. It's awful bunkum really, but there's a few laughs to be had. With 'Death Wish 4', however, director J. Lee Thomson mistakenly tries a more serious effort, but it ends up just being a bit tired. Cannon were hoping for another success with the fourth outing, but unlike 3, it didn't bring in the money and ended up being a loss maker for the studio. In all honesty, it's not absolutely awful. It's just routine and rather forgettable. Thompson's direction is certainly a notch or two above Winner's, but by this stage, the Death Wish series had just completely outlived its welcome.
