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. Assistant District Attorney Mary Fletcher plans to put Rico away for as long as possible, since New York doesn’t have the death penalty. Nick tries to convince Eddie to join the vigilante group, but Eddie turns Nick down, preferring to let the courts handle Rico. Nick makes it clear that he has no faith whatsoever in the police and the judicial system. The case against Rico doesn’t make it past the arraignment. Corrupt judge Sinclair sets Rico free with a two year suspended sentence. Eddie goes crazy and tries to strangle judge Sinclair, who sentences Eddie to spend 30 days in jail for that. It was Rico’s right hand man, Prago, who had fired the shot that killed Scott while Rico stabbed Vickie. Prago also paid judge Sinclair to set Rico free. In jail, Eddie befriends an inmate named Rake. As soon as Eddie is released from jail, he changes his mind about Nick’s vigilante group. Eddie joins the group so he can go after Rico, Prago and judge Sinclair.
Plot: New York City factory worker Eddie Marino is a solid citizen and regular guy, until the day a sadistic street gang brutally assaults his wife and murders his child. When a corrupt judge sets the thugs free, Eddie goes berserk and vows revenge.

Lustig’s Homage to the Italian Revenge Flicks
Vigilante (1983) is a revenge flick in the style of 70’s Italian Crime films (He even shot it in Scope). Robert Forester plays Marino, an average working joe who’s family is attacked by an inner city street gang. When the justice system fails him, Marino can’t take it anymore and with the help of his co-workers takes revenge on the street scum. Sophisticated trash from William Lustig (It looks and feels sleazy). The film has an all star cult film line up. Featuring Fred “The Hammer” Williamson, Joe Spinell, Woody Strode, Carol Lynley, Frank Pesce and Rutyana Alda.
Old school ultra violence, Lustig style.
Well made Death Wish clone
A vigilante group take it upon themselves to administer tough justice. An ordinary Joe called Eddie Marino disapproves but later changes his mind after a gang murder his son and assault his wife and then are subsequently let off by the courts.
This William Lustig flick is a direct descendant of Death Wish and the Italian Poliziotteschis. It’s a film that actively promotes vigilantism but in a similar way to how Dirty Harry promoted police brutality, no one should really take this too seriously. It’s an exploitation crime thriller pure and simple, even if like the other vigilante movies from the time it clearly tapped into something relevant. Crime in urban cities was particularly terrible at the time and the law were not awfully effective in dealing with it. It does have to be admitted that the streets of New York featured in Vigilante look seriously nasty. This was a mean city alright.
This is a pretty well made film of its type. The scope photography is pretty handsome. It also boasts a really good cast including Robert Forster, Fred Williamson and Woody Strode. The story is direct and simple with a decent enough pay off. There are absolutely no surprises here at all but sometimes more of the same is okay.
