Revisiting ‘The Karate Kid’ (1984)

On May 2nd, Daniel Larusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) will come face-to-face once again in the YouTube Red series Cobra Kai, a continuation of The Karate Kid series that started 34 years ago. For any fan of the crane-kicking original franchise, this new series is a cause for giddy excitement of any fan of the franchise. Between 1984 and 1994, The Karate Kid franchise followed Daniel-san and his sensei Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) through numerous karate tournaments, with the fourth part in ’94 following Miyagi with a new student. With Cobra Kai on the horizon, now seems as good a time as any to re-visit the narrative of Daniel and Miyagi, leaving aside the kung-fu centric remake with Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan. So, let’s kick off with there it all started: sunny California, 1984.

Daniel Larusso has moved to California from Newark, New Jersey so that his mother can explore a new career opportunity.

Bruce Willis stars in an exclusive movie clip from Eli Roth’s Death Wish

Revenge is in the air, and Eli Roth has resurrected the Death Wish franchise with Bruce Willis stepping into the Charles Bronson role from the 1974 Michael Winner film. He is joined by Vincent D’Onofrio, Elisabeth Shue and Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris in the key roles. Certainly having Roth behind the camera directing a Joe Carnahan adaptation would certainly have helped to bring in the fine cast, and today the film sees the insides of the UK’s picture houses.

To give you a taste of what’s in store we have an exclusive clip featuring Willis and D’Onofrio at a critical point of Willis’ character’s journey.

Take a look.

Trauma surgeon Paul Kelsey (Bruce Willis) has devoted his life to saving others. His happy family life is torn apart when his home is burgled, his wife murdered and his teenage daughter severely injured.

You’ve been wheeled into ER, open your eyes and looking down at you is your surgeon. Bruce Willis. How confident do you feel? Probably not very. But you’re asked to believe in him as an idealistic doctor – and a whole lot more – in this re-boot of Death Wish, a film surrounded by controversy in its first incarnation back in 1975.

‘Death Wish’ Review: Dir. Eli Roth (2018)

Death Wish review: This contemporary reboot of the infamous 1974 film may be the most ill-judged, clumsily-executed, and poorly-timed film of the year.

Death Wish review by Abi Silverthorne.

Death Wish review

Eli Roth, he of Hostel and The Green Inferno fame, seemed an interesting directorial choice when news broke that Brian Garfield’s nuanced literary condemnation of vigilante violence was getting a second on-screen adaptation—given that his prior films are mostly known for their gleeful, performative gore-gasms.

The plot is relatively similar to the 70’s versions: Paul Kersey is a peaceful and happily-married Chicagoan, father to a beautiful and loving daughter, and basically thriving in every way a person can be until his life is shattered by a single night of violence, as his family is attacked during a violent burglary.

Kersey finds himself widowed and grieving, doting on a daughter left in a coma from her injuries. Detectives

'Death Wish' Review: Bruce Willis Dishes Out Torture-Porn Revenge in Weak Remake

Part peerless Horror City time capsule and part urban-paranoia Op-Ed, the original 1974 Death Wish dropped its pacifist everyguy into Middle America's nightmare version of rotten-Big-Apple New York – muggers, rapists and minorities, oh my! – then asked audiences: What would you do if your loved ones were attacked by modern-day savages? The answer: Be a man, pick up a gun and become the apex predator of the concrete jungle. To say that its frontier-justice ideology was reactionary would be putting it mildly; the movie did everything but grab viewers by the lapels.

Film Review: Vigilante Overkill Defines Ultra-Violent ‘Death Wish’

Chicago – Man, talk about bad timing. With the Stoneman Douglas shootings still making news, America will now entertain itself with a vigilante doctor shooting anything he sees? Yeesh. Bruce Willis is game in the watchable-but-ultra-violent “Death Wish.”

Rating: 3.0/5.0

The preview audience I saw it with was obviously itching for some revenge lust, because each of Willis’s quality kills were applauded like a home run. There are plenty of shootings, open wounds, head shots and brain splatterings… the fake blood budget probably equaled Bruce’s paycheck. This is ultimate fantasy, the type that NRA arguments against gun control rely on – that the “good guy” with a gun can overcome all evil others who possess that same weapons. I got news for you, only the movies can get away with it, and “Death Wish” should really be a reminder that ordinary folks with arsenals can snap like a twig at any moment.

Movie Review – Death Wish (2018)

Death Wish, 2018.

Directed by Eli Roth.

Starring Bruce Willis, Vincent D’Onofrio, Elisabeth Shue, Camila Morrone, Dean Norris, Beau Knapp, and Kimberly Elise.

Synopsis:

A family man becomes a vigilante killing machine when his family is violently attacked by robbers.

Death Wish (remade by gorehound Eli Roth working from a script by Joe Carnahan based on Brian Garfield’s novel) was originally set to release in late 2017 but, much like Season Two of Netflix’s The Punisher, was pushed back for sensitivity reasons as the product would be consumed by the public shortly after a senseless mass shooting. Not much has changed, except that Death Wish will not be delayed again. Say what you will about the idea to resurrect this once Charles Bronson led series from the dead for a new era, the current political climate (never-ending debates regarding gun laws) and the setting of Chicago (the leading city

Death Wish Review

Eli Roth’s Death Wish remake is a “What were they thinking?” shoot-em-up baffler from start to finish. Irresponsibly tone deaf, maverick in its thematic ignorance and pornographic in its fetishistic gun obsession. There’s never a point where vi-o-lent vigilante justice might *not* be the answer, always gruesomely inflicted with Rothian levels of fatal body trauma. For a movie that opens with media chatter about how Chicago’s criminal epidemic has reached near-dystopian levels, there’s a shocking lack of responsible messaging under peeled layers of flesh. No matter how much you might want to separate your politics from movies, Death Wish refuses to let you. It’s a dumbfounding example of the exact kind of weapons normalization we *do-f#&king-not* need in mainstream pop culture right now.

Bruce Willis is Roth’s Charles Bronson, playing the “Lake Shore Drive” lookin’ surgeon Dr. Paul Kersey. He’s a loving

‘Death Wish’ Review: A Catatonic Bruce Willis Stars in Eli Roth’s Dangerously Entertaining Commercial for the NRA

‘Death Wish’ Review: A Catatonic Bruce Willis Stars in Eli Roth’s Dangerously Entertaining Commercial for the NRA
2018 is turning out to be a truly inclusive year for on-screen representation. “Black Panther” invited African-American audiences to see themselves in a massive superhero movie that wasn’t about their own oppression, “A Fantastic Woman” gave transgender women the chance to see themselves in an acclaimed film that wasn’t terribly retrograde, and now Eli Roth’s dangerously enjoyable “Death Wish” gives right-wing lunatics the opportunity to see themselves in a fascist fairy tale that wasn’t directed by Dinesh D’Souza. To each their own cinema.

Set in an alternate-reality Chicago where the police are so overwhelmed by inner-city crime that they can’t spare the resources required to solve the murder of an affluent white woman, this contemporary riff on Charles Bronson’s vigilante classic is a pulpy reaffirmation of the idea that a good guy with a gun is the only thing capable of stopping a bad guy with a gun.
