Death Wish II (1982)

It is now 1981, Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) and his daughter Carol (Robin Sherwood), who is still catatonic, now live in Los Angeles because Paul accepted a deal from the NYPD to leave town so they wouldn’t tell anyone that he was the vigilante in Death Wish.

Paul now has a new woman in his life, KABC news reporter Geri Nichols (Jill Ireland). One day while he’s out with Carol and Geri, he is mugged by a gang of five punks. Paul fights back, but they get away.

The muggers go to his house, gag, rape, and murder Kersey’s housekeeper, and kidnap and rape Carol, who tries to run away, jumps through the second story window, and dies when she’s impaled on an iron fence stake.

When he learns of his daughter’s death, Paul is beside himself with grief and rage, rents a ratty hotel room, disguises himself, and sets out to find the five punks/rapists who killed Carol in order to kill them with his new .380 Beretta Model 85pistol – all to a soundtrack provided by Jimmy Page.

When the LAPD deduces that they have a vigilante on their hands, they decide to consult with the NYPD, who fear that Kersey is killing criminals again. Fearing that Kersey, when caught, will reveal that they let him go instead of prosecuting him, the NYPD sends Det. Frank Ochoa (Vincent Gardenia) to make sure that doesn’t happen!

Keep your eyes peeled for Laurence Fishburne as Cutter, Ava Lazar, Thomas. F. Duffy, and Drew Snyder.
