Escape from the Bronx (1983)

aka Bronx Warriors 2

A sequel to 1990: The Bronx Warriors (1982) set a decade later. Trash is back, biking through ruins and shooting at helicopters with just a pistol.
A villainous businessman wants to flatten the entire Bronx and build new, profitable ventures in its place, but first he needs to publicly ‘relocate’ the residents. He sends in helmeted death squads to make quick work of it. But wait, Trash isn't going to take that shit lying down!
The audio issues are as bad as they were before. However, the story is more focussed and purposeful than either of the other two films and for that reason alone I think it’s my favourite of Castellari's trilogy.
