A man (Joseph Bottoms) goes blind . Doctors fit him with an experimental device which allows him to see with the aid of a computer interface and brain electrodes. Meanwhile, a taxi driver is taking young women up to their apartments and performing fatal surgery on them. Their paths inevitably converge and the blind man must try to stop the psychopath. Whats important is that both Marina Sirtis and Kirstie Alley are young and naked in this flick, this being Kirstie Alley's only nude scene. Unless she has another one in mind (and given her age and current condition I almost hope not), this movie goes down in the nudophile record books as pretty f'n good One-Time Nudity! Also stars Lana Clarkson, a young Valeria Golino and an even younger Fabiana Udenio.
Included are the DVD extras, which have additional footage not included in the release.
Another one of those 80's flicks from the "so-bad-it's-good" canon, Death Wish 3 finds good ol' Charlie Bronson reprising his role as Paul Kersey and mowing down all manner of completely unrepentant gang-bangers who have overrun a distressed neighborhood of old folks and victimized minorities. Full of violence and retribution that'll make you feel downright giddy, the movie is chock full of unintentional laughs, especially when Bronson gets a romantic subplot with Deborah Raffin that's about as involving as sifting sand. Their complete lack of chemistry helps when Raffin's character exits the movie and Bronson remains as steely-eyed as ever.
Of note are two rather curious early roles for Alex Winter (Bill of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure ) and the lovely Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi on Star Trek: The Next Generation).
Catherine's ( Cindy Williams ) world goes to pieces when she learns from the police that her husband Donald was shot and killed in the apartment of a prostitute ( Markie Post )! To Catherine he was a model husband determined to make them wealthy by investment banking. Catherine and the call girl join forces as they are both determined to find Donald's killers.
When her daughter mysteriously disappears for a few hours, Judith English decides to confront her greatest fears and investigate what is happening. She realizes that her daughter is experiencing the same thing that she experienced as a little girl, abduction by aliens.
This costume film about a seemingly proper lady who moonlights as a swashbuckling highwaywoman is surprisingly boring. The all-star cast of Faye Dunaway, Alan Bates, John Gielgud & Denholm Elliot fail to breathe any life into the incredibly dull script. My advice: skip through the movie and seek out Marina Sirtis' excellent nude scenes. She looks fantastic as always.
