I'm not a big fan of remakes. I think the huge flow of remakes coming out of Hollywood these days shows a lack of creativity.
Although the general story line is pretty much the same as the original there is enough difference to keep it interesting. Willis portrayed the torment Kersey was going through well, and in this respect he played the part better than Bronson.
I'll disagree with another reviewer that the NRA will love the movie. In actuality, the portrayal of a legal gun sale bore no resemblance to real life. The anti-gun attitude of Hollywood (while at the same time glamorizing guns) was evident. it would be refreshing if the y could handle the topic honestly.
And I'll also give credit for their paying homage to the original at the end
