BRONX WARRIORS II
ESCAPE FROM THE BRONX; 1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS II
(Fuga dal Bronx)
Bronx Warriors II is a much better film than its predecessor. Enzo G. Castellaris direction is much more polished and evidently bettered over the first film. Despite a jerky start, the film picks up into a competently made action bloodbath. Indeed, the films true heart is as a spaghetti western (where Enzo G. Castellari had his beginnings) and it comes filled with all the slow-motion explosions, extreme zooms and closeups associated with the genre. The story is silly, the politics naive and simplistic, but at least the action is non-stop and allows no room for the wooden acting and atrocious dialogue to emerge any further than necessary. While not attaining to anywhere near high art, Bronx Warriors II at least proves entertaining.
Enzo G. Castellaris other genre films include:- the giallo psycho-thriller Cold Eyes of Fear (1971); the supernatural film The House By the Edge of the Lake (1979); 1990: The Bronx Warriors (1982); Shark/Great White (1982); the incredibly bad post-holocaust film The New Barbarians/Warriors of the Wasteland (1983); the mad scientist/death ray film Light Blast (1985); and Sinbad of the Seven Seas (1989).
