ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! The streets of Philadelphia are unsafe, but John D'Angelo has a solution. Thieves, pimps, and pushers beware: he's declaring a personal war on crime. From the director of Alligator and the producer of Death Wish comes Fighting Back! Tom Skerritt (M*A*S*H, Alien) stars as John D'Angelo, a proud husband and father fed up with the crime and fear his family endures everyday. When his wife, Lisa (Patti LuPone) and elderly mother are both victims of violent attacks, he organizes a team of locals to operate as a neighborhood patrol group. But when the patrol resorts to vigilante tactics, the lines between protection and personal vendetta become blurred, resulting in violence and corruption. Directed by Lewis Teague from a script by Thomas Hedley Jr. (Flashdance) and David Z. Goodman (Straw Dogs), featuring a supporting cast that includes Michael Sarrazin (Frankenstein: The True Story) and Yaphet Kotto (Live and Let Die) and with a score by celebrated Italian composer Piero Piccioni (Christ Stopped at Eboli), Fighting Back (released overseas as Death Vengeance) finally makes its blistering Blu-ray debut!

Press Quotes

Fast-moving, attention-holding and even thoughtprovoking

     —New York Times

It's urban vigilante time

     —Time Out

Dynamic leading roles are no doubt a temptation for any actor, but... Yaphet Kotto, heads a formidable auxiliary of black actors

     —The Washington Post

there is an undeniable visceral thrill to seeing some idiot criminal get his comeuppance

     —JEFFREY KAUFFMAN, Blu-ray.com
