Synopsis

An explosive story of revenge and urban violence. Charles Bronson plays Paul Kersey, a bleeding heart liberal who has a change of opinion after his wife and daughter are violently attacked by a gang of thugs in their apartment. His daughter is raped, his wife raped and murdered. Bronson then turns vigilante as he stalks the mean streets of New York on the prowl for muggers, hoodlums and the like. A violent, controversial film which is frank and original in its treatment of urban crime and the average citizens' helplessness in dealing with it. Herbie Hancock wrote the musical score.
