Death Wish II marked the beginning of a beautiful relationship between Cannon and the then 61-year-old tough-guy icon Charles Bronson—in this, the second of six films he would make with them, he plays an LAPD detective fired for planting evidence on a serial killer who murders in the nude (Gene Davis). When his daughter becomes the next target in the ensuing grudge match, it’s a case of “Forget what’s legal, do what’s right!” as the film’s tagline went.
