Love him or loathe him, director turned gourmand Michael Winner created a major stir with his guns 'n' grudges vigilante series starring Charles Bronson. He of the killer moustache and great escapes is prompted to rid New York of its sidewalk scum when his wife is slaughtered and daughter reduced to a vegetable. If you overlook the dodgy morality, there's some thrilling action scenes and Bronson liked it so much he made two more after Winner jumped ship after DW3.
