Escape 2000

The "General Construction Corporation" hires a group of militarized thugs to re-locate or murder everyone living in the Bronx so they can re-purpose the area with upscale apartment buildings. When renegade gang leader "Trash" (Mark Gregory, reprising his role from 1990: The Bronx Warriors) discovers these "Disinfestors" have killed his parents, he decides to seek revenge. Things get blown up, people get killed, and the main villain is named "Floyd Wangler."[1]
