Product Description

The Savage Urban Action Thriller From The Director Of MANIAC

New York City factory worker Eddie Marino (Robert Forster, Oscar® nominee for JACKIE BROWN) is a solid citizen and regular guy, until the day a sadistic street gang brutally assaults his wife and murders his child. But when a corrupt judge sets the thugs free, Eddie goes berserk and vows revenge. Now there's a new breed of marauder loose on the city streets, enforcing his own kind of law. His justice is swift. His methods are violent. He is the VIGILANTE.

Fred Williamson (FROM DUSK TILL DAWN), Woody Strode (SPARTACUS), Joe Spinell (MANIAC) and Salsa legend Willie Colon co-star in this hard-hitting exploitation classic from director William Lustig (MANIAC COP, RELENTLESS) that many critics consider to be better - and more shocking - than the original DEATH WISH. Blue Underground is now proud to present VIGILANTE in a pristine new 2K High Definition transfer from the original uncut and uncensored camera negative!

HASH(0x9c299420) out of 5 stars Surprisingly good Nov. 17 2010
By LoBo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I was suprised how much i liked it. I think it was good. I think Fred Williamson was very good and the best
character in the film. He got charisma. He had several lines in the film which i liked. When he said "Save some
for me, Burke", i couldn`t help but to smile. I must say i liked that dark Synthesizer music that was used to
great effect. This was a good purchase.

Picture Quality: 4.5/5

I was impressed with the picture quality, which i think was pretty sharp and detailed. The colours and such
looked clear and strong on my flat screen. I satisfied with it. I didn`t notice any use of noise reduction, which i
was glad i didn`t see.

Audio Quality: 4/5

I was less impressed by the DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1. I think the some of the gunshot effects could have had
more bass. Like for example when Fred used a shotgun. It didn`t have a lot of bass. Strange thing, when he
used a somekind of Revolver, it had more bass than that shotgun!. Hm. Also one other problem i had with this
audio track, was that i feel the music was mixed too loud and the dialog too low. I often had to turn the volume
down when i heard the music. When there was dialog scenes i had to turn the volume up.

I think people doing this remix should have corrected these problems. I did find it annoying. The music sounded
pretty good and clear in the Center speaker. I heard some good bass coming from my subwoofer when the
Synthesizer music was used. The Rear speakers was mostly used for good effect, like for example, i heard: of
course music there, gunshots, people in prison shouting and cars crashing. So, i think the people in charge of
making this audio track could have done a better job. Except for the problems i mentioned, i think it was good,
but not very good.

Film: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

HASH(0x9c29966c) out of 5 stars Nasty and forgotten little exploitation gem June 16 2012
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
William Lustig, the director of Maniac and the Maniac Cop series, helms this nasty and sadly forgotten little exploitation gem from 1983. Vigilante stars Robert Forester as Eddie, a New York factory worker making an honest living and living a happy life with his wife and young son. All that doesn't last long however as his wife is brutally assaulted and son murdered by a street gang, who subsequently escape the charges thanks to a corrupt judge. Eddie eventually takes the law into his own hands, with bloody results. Featuring a solid cast (Forester, genre stalwart Fred Williamson, Woody Strode, and Maniac's own Joe Spinell) and some surprisingly well orchestrated action sequences, Vigilante is a gritty and dark treat. It may come off as Death Wish-lite for some, but for what it is it works, and is a sadly overlooked and forgotten gem of the era.
HASH(0x9c299630) out of 5 stars 35 ratio and a tad better than the DVD but I highly doubt anyone will ... July 18 2015
By SLAVE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Blu-Ray Review: Blue underground version. This Blu Ray comes with 2 audio commentaries, trailers, radio spots BLAH BLAH BLAH!! The picture quality is in 2:35 ratio and a tad better than the DVD but I highly doubt anyone will even notice.

Movie Review: This film is about vigilantism but more about a family man who seeks vengeance against some annoying retards for killing his kid and mutilating his wife's boobies. This is an excellent vigilante movie but it's nowhere near as good as Death Wish but still provides some great acting, blooding violence and a good story. Yippy.

Conclusion: 4 stars for the Blu Ray and 4 1/2 for Vigilante.

HASH(0x9c299924) out of 5 stars Vigilante is a great, underrated exploitation flick! Jan. 21 2011
By Geekotron420 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This is a review of the Blue Underground Blu-Ray release of VIGILANTE.

Forster steals the show here. I purchased this having already been a fan of William Lustig's 'Maniac Cop' series and also having been a fan of the original 'Death Wish'. This movie is the perfect combination of Lustig's saavy B-movie direction and the shocking but gratifying Death Wish-style revenge thriller. This is an unbelievable transfer that exploitation fans will love. Blue Underground delivers the goods, I guess it's good to be the boss!
HASH(0x9c299984) out of 5 stars An Excellent HD presentation of this dark indie film Jan. 25 2014
By Jean Philippe Robert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Got this Blu on special below 10 Dollars.
At this price the disc brings high value for this indie film. Much in the vein of Death Wish for its gritty representation of urban violence, Williamson and Forster shine in their portrayals of every-day men.
Director Lustig also provides 2 audio commentaries that candidly look back at the making of the film.
The image in itself has been restored to a pristine state for a film of this age.
Round this presentation with trailers, promo-reel and multi-languages and you get this fantastic disc.
