Several years after the events of 1990: The Bronx Warriors and Trash (Mark Gregory), former leader of the Riders gang is now a cynical loner, remaining in the impoverished, lawless wasteland of the Bronx and trading in stolen ammunition. The General Construction (GC) Corporation, led by President Clark (Enio Girolami), wish to tear down the Bronx to turn it into “the city of the future”. To do this they need to clear the current population from the area and have employed expelled prison warden Floyd Wangler (Henry Silva) and a private squad of Disinfestors to burn, shoot and gas those that will not leave willingly. While the bums, vagrants and elderly are easy prey, the warrior gangs of the Bronx will not go quietly and a rebel army of all surviving Bronx gangs led by Dablone (Antonio Sabato) is holed up underground. When Trash’s parents are burned alive by Disinfestors he begins to take revenge by leading ruthless guerrilla attacks on the clean up squads which in turn leads to the GC Corporation and Wangler trying ever nastier means of subverting the rebellion (such as rigging hostages with bombs). Trash, Dablone and a crusading reporter named Moon Gray (Valerie Dobson) then team up with psychotic mercenary Strike (Timothy Brent/Giancarlo Prete) and his equally crazy son Strike Jr (Alessandro Prete) to kidnap President Clark and put the Bronx back in the hands of the gangs…

Well, what can you say, this is yet another classic Enzo G. Castellari production and a sequel to “1990: The Bronx Warriors”. It follows CastellariĀ“s b-action movie formula with massive violence, dodgy acting, dodgy dubbing and interesting supporting roles, in this case Henry Silva. You can as well notice an homage to Sam Peckinpah in some of the action scenes. “Escape From The Bronx” is ok for what it is. No more, no less. (2 and a half out of 5)
