In the final battle, Kersey fires too many shots from his Wildey without reloading. See more »
A .475 Wildey magnum is a shorter version of the African big game cartridge. It makes a real mess.

A shot during the end credits shows police cars and an ambulance and fire truck screaming down a street towards the epicenter of the riots. See more »
The syndicated network TV version has at least one alternate take: During the gang rape of Maria in the gang's headquarters, the WPIX TV version shows her screaming with her arms crossed in front of her chest, while the theatrical version shows her screaming with a clear shot of her bare breasts. The TV footage is extremely grainy and badly spliced into the film. See more »
What a romp this is. The great Kersey (Charles Bronson), ignoring advice to lay low for a while (like ten years!), relocates his trigger finger and bad attitude to New York City.
A long sequence where Kersey runs the streets shooting at everything in sight redefines this as a crazy modern Western. All sense goes out the window and the angry vigilante's original reasons for revenge fade slowly into the bullet-ridden background.
You get exploded thugs, burning cars, bodies through glass, dozens of bullet-riddled corpses and a lurid directing style that is perfect for the material.
Not as fine as DEATH WISH 2, but fine, nevertheless.
