Both Charles Bronson and the Death Wish franchise were getting long in the tooth when this vigilante sequel arrived in 1994. TV Guide unleashed on its wanton gun violence: “What’s revolting, if not surprising, about this salute to Bernie Goetz, the NRA, and All-American contempt for civil liberties, is the casual inevitability of all the violence.”

“The Sting II” is one of the better examples why some seques are not needed. Despite a stellar cast including Jackie Gleason, Oliver Reed, Karl Malden and Teri Garr, it was a complete flop. Janet Maslin seemed to sum up the critics consensus: “Moves slowly, looks terrible and copies the first film shamelessly.”
