Escape from the Bronx

Escape from the Bronx is a 1983 Italian action film directed by Enzo G. Castellari, it was featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000 under its Escape 2000 name. It is a sequel to 1990: The Bronx Warriors. Several years after the events of 1990: The Bronx Warriors, former leader of the Riders gang is now a cynical loner, remaining in the impoverished, lawless wasteland of the Bronx and trading in stolen ammunition; the General Construction Corporation, led by President Clark, wish to tear down the Bronx to turn it into “the city of the future”. To do this they need to clear the current population from the area and have employed expelled prison warden Floyd Wangler and a private squad of Disinfestors to burn and gas those that will not leave willingly. While the bums and elderly are easy prey, the warrior gangs of the Bronx will not go and a rebel army of all surviving Bronx gangs led by Dablone is holed up underground; when Trash's parents are burned alive by Disinfestors, he begins to take revenge by leading ruthless guerrilla attacks on the clean up squads which in turn leads to the GC Corporation and Floyd Wangler trying nastier means of subverting the rebellion.

Trash, a crusading reporter named Moon Gray team up with psychotic mercenary Strike and his crazy son to kidnap President Clark and put the Bronx back in the hands of the gangs. Shot 18 months after the first Bronx movie, Enzo G. Castellari has stated that he was disappointed with how much muscle mass Mark Gregory had lost between part one and this sequel, why he keeps his jacket on for 90% of the movie. Filmed in New York and Cinecitta film studios in Rome. Mark Gregory was still 18 when he shot this movie and Enzo Castellari states on the DVD commentary for 1990: The Bronx Warriors that his young age and lack of experience was a factor in why Mark did not last long in the film business, it was released theatrically by Fulvia Film in Italy on August 25, 1983, in the United Kingdom on September 2, 1983. The film was released on DVD in the UK by Vipco in 2003, to theaters in the US in 1983 by New Line Cinema on VHS in 1997 by New Line Home Video. Australian company Stomp Entertainment released a region 0 / NTSC disc in 2006.

So far this is the only option for American fans to purchase as the DVD has never been official released on DVD in the United States. Shameless Entertainment released the film on Region 2 / PAL format in the UK in 2009; the movie is part of a box set entitled "The Bronx Warriors Trilogy" and is packaged with 1990: The Bronx Warriors and The New Barbarians. Blue Underground released the film in Blu-ray/DVD combo pack on June 30, 2015. A website dedicated to both this film and its predecessor 1990: The Bronx Warriors was set up in 2004; the site contains two interviews with Enzo G Castellari and details an ongoing attempt to locate Mark Gregory who vanished from public view in about 1989. There is a message in MP3 format from Enzo and his son Andrea to Mark asking him to get in touch and saying how much they miss him; the cult TV series Mystery Science Theater 3000 highlighted the movie in a seventh-season episode. Most of the jokes regarded the obvious Italian setting and bad outfits but of particular note is that the character of Dablone won Mike, Tom Servo, Crow over with his over the top performance.

They would groan over his absence in the middle of the movie and cheered when he made his return in the film The first Bronx Warriors convention was held in 2009 in Rome. Attendees received a badge stating DAS-Disinfestation Annihilation Squad. Escape from the Bronx on IMDb
