Exterminator 2 is a 1984 vigilante action film directed by Mark Buntzman, starring Robert Ginty as John Eastland, a Vietnam veteran who becomes a vigilante known as "The Exterminator" to rid his hometown of crime. The film also stars Mario Van Peebles as X, a gang leader, and Deborah Geffner as Caroline, John's love interest. The movie picks up a few years after the events of the first Exterminator movie, with John having relocated to New York City after the death of his best friend in the previous film. He works as a construction worker during the day but at night, he still goes out to rid the city's streets of gang violence.

John's vigilantism takes a new turn when he goes after a group of drug pushers who have taken over a local bar, killing everyone inside. He manages to kill one of the pushers, causing the rest of the gang to seek revenge. They kidnap John's girlfriend, Caroline, and leave her for dead. John is naturally enraged and goes on a bloody rampage to get revenge and rescue Caroline.

Meanwhile, X, a new drug lord in the city, starts to take notice of John's actions and decides to make him his enemy. X is a despicable and ruthless gang leader with a large entourage who worships him. He is arrogant, sadistic, and seems to relish in causing pain to his victims. X's enmity against John leads to a final showdown between the two.

The movie is a classic action film of the 1980s and delivers everything you could want from such a movie. The action scenes are brutal, bloody and satisfying, with explosions, gunfights, and hand-to-hand combat. Robert Ginty plays the role of The Exterminator with a sense of fierce determination and stoic silence that make him a convincing and likable hero.

Mario Van Peebles as X is definitely the standout in the movie, providing a formidable enemy to John. His performance is over-the-top and charismatic, with a captivating screen presence that makes him both entertaining and terrifying. He manages to be both ridiculous and menacing at the same time, and it is hard to take your eyes off him when he is on screen.

The movie also touches on themes of vigilante justice, corruption, and the drug epidemic that swept through many American cities during the 1980s. There is a pervasive sense of lawlessness and desperation throughout the film, which John's actions, while extreme, help to counter.

Overall, Exterminator 2 is a fun and exciting action movie that will keep you engaged from beginning to end. It is full of thrilling action scenes, cartoonishly evil villains, and satisfying violence. It is definitely worth a watch for fans of 80s action movies or anyone looking for an entertaining, escapist thrill ride.

Exterminator 2 is a 1984 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.6.
