Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While the first film convinced me of Bronson's need for vengeance, this one is just a series of dumb killings."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Overall, it's as unstylish as anything Winner has put his name to."
‑ , Time Out
"The language is filthy, the film is simpleminded, and Bronson's character is as despicable as those he murders."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"And now, the latest in our continuing series, 'Why The Hell Was This Sequel Made?'"
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"Shamelessly rehashed."
‑ , Entertainment Weekly
"Even more foolish, more tacky and more selfrighteously inhumane than the 1974 melodrama off which it has been spun by the none-too-nimble fingers of Michael Winner."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
‑ Cole Smithey,
"All the blood and none of the brain."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"The results are every bit as revolting as in the original 1974 jackpot fantasy."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"a strong, visceral experience that is not always comfortable to watch but pleasing to watch as the bad guys get what's coming to them"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"An unnecessary sequel, the first of too many."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
