Few people kick more ass that Paul Kersey and I always found this death scene particularly satisfying; there are certain actors who you just despise when they play villains and Michael Parks is one of them. FYI This is no insult to Parks; I mean the character you despise and in this his villain Tommy O’Shea is particularly mean.
In Death Wish V famed vigilante Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) takes his girlfriend, Olivia (Lesley-Anne Down), out to dinner and proposes to her. She accepts but is soon assaulted by a thug (Robert Joy), causing irreparable disfigurement. The thug is an associate of Olivia’s ex-husband, mobster Tommy O’Shea (Michael Parks), who is terrorizing Olivia in an effort to discourage her from testifying against him. When the coercion gets worse, Kersey takes a ruthless stand and vows to hunt O’Shea down.
In this climactic scene Kersey is face to face with O’Shea and is about to give him a thoroughly satisfying send off.
