Eddie Marino is a factory worker in New York City. He has a wife named Vickie and a son named Scott. Eddie's friend and co-worker Nick and some of the factory's other workers have formed a vigilante group because Nick and the group are fed up with the pimps, gangs, and drug dealers who keep taking over the neighborhoods. Nick and his group are also sick and tired of the police, because the police always fail to protect people who become victims. Eddie goes home from work one night, only to discover that Vickie has been stabbed, and Scott has been shot dead. Frederico "Rico" Melendez, the leader of a Puerto Rican street gang, is arrested for Vickie's stabbing and Scott's murder.

Hey, I don't know about you guys, but me... I've had it up to here. There are some 40-odd homicides a day on our streets. There are over two million illegal guns in this city.

The film was cut by MPAA before the film was released in 1983, for graphic violence and in particular the pier scene where crooked politician and his lookout are killed with blood splatter lasting a bit longer and also the scene where the two patrol cops in their car are ambushed and killed underneath the underpass which filled with more blood splatter. This is the version that appeared on home video on the Vestron Home Video label and cable television. See more »
The average rating for this movie is way too low. I guess people don't like violent movies that much. This movie has some violent scenes, that's true but it's so much more than that. Fred Williamson's speech at the beginning of the movie hits straight home. I hardly see this movie on television. I think it's because people are afraid that many people could be influenced by it, since society is growing darker and darker every day. What Fred Williamson and company do in this movie is what a lot of people would like to do but can't because the law doesn't allow it. The way I see it this movie is really great. The bad guys deserve what they get and that's what makes this movie so great.
