Rating of
3/4 

This movie was very entertaining and a fun watch. They definitely get you angry with the people that rape and kill the main characters wife and daughter. It even touches the effect that rape has on on a woman. Although the daughter survived, she has died inside and can't deal with the horribleness of what has happened to her. This anger makes for a perfect vengeance/vigilante movie. I do wish the vigilante part of it was a little more believable. Since there was no investigative aspect to the movie, I found the predicaments Bronson found himself in to be unrealistic and unbelievable, making it not very thrilling. Could have been done a lot better. The very last scene pushed this movie from a 2.5 to a 3 though.
