Trading Rape for Action in #4
“Death Wish 4” is easily my favorite of the DW series, even though I really like most of the first entry. But you see, I find graphic, luridly depicted rape in films distasteful. I could take it in the first film, because there was at least some thematic and emotional need for it (though I still think it was overboard and gratuitous). Parts 2 and 3 escalated the rape and humiliation sequences and writer/director Michael Winner actually seemed to be trying to get us to enjoy the sight of tortured, crying, beaten, naked woman as much as he obviously did; combine this with zero plot, zero character development, and inept action, and you had some really, really bad flicks. Number four was directed by J. Lee Thompson, a frequent collaborator with Bronson since 1976’s “St. Ives.” Thompson took the usual DW revenge formula, eliminated the obligatory rape sequence, and ratcheted up the action. So what we have is a Death Wish picture more similar to “Murphy’s Law” than any of the other films in the series. Of course Bronson’s 80s films are often the butt of jokes (to those who remember them at all, that is) but I happen to enjoy them immensely–there’s just something I dig about this charismatic, elderly guy running around shooting bad guys; I can’t even explain it. If you dig the salt and pepper Bronson as well, then give DW4 a try.
Bronson is cleaning up the streets once again
Architect and vigilante supreme Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson, who’s older, but still game and nimble enough) joins forces with the wealthy Nathan White (robustly played with rip-snorting panache by John P. Ryan) to wipe out two major Los Angeles drug cartels after the daughter of Kersey’s latest girlfriend Karen Sheldon (the ever-gorgeous Kay Lenz) dies from an overdose.
Director J. Lee Thompson keeps the intricate and engrossing story moving along at a snappy pace as well as stages the exciting action set pieces with flair and skill. Gail Morgan Hickman’s unusually complex and clever script not only offers a nifty “Yojimbo”-style narrative, but also makes Kersey out to be a victim in his own right and even provides several inspired moments of amusing self-mocking humor. The solid acting by the capable cast helps a lot, with especially sturdy contributions from Perry Lopez as slimy drug kingpin Ed Zacharias, Soon Tek-Oh as the corrupt Detective Phil Nozaki, and George Dickerson as Nozaki’s loyal partner Detective Reiner. Keep ’em peeled for Danny Trejo, Tom Everett, and Mitch Pileggi in small roles. Gideon Porath’s slick cinematography gives this picture an impressive glossy sheen. In addition, there are a few hilariously obvious dummy deaths and goofy touches like a bomb that’s disguised as a wine bottle. Good trashy fun.
