Storyline

Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city's violence as it's rushed into his ER -until his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and college-age daughter (Camila Morrone) are viciously attacked in their suburban home. With the police overloaded with crimes, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts for his family's assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media's attention, the city wonders if this deadly avenger is a guardian angel...or a grim reaper. Fury and fate collide in the intense action-thriller Death Wish. Written by MGM

Trivia

Eli Roth was a huge fan of Dean Norris from Breaking Bad (2008), and at one point was going to get second dog and name him after Norris' character Hank Schraeder. Roth had confessed this to Norris at a party years ago, and Norris did not forget. Although Roth only has one dog (Monkey) he still swears that his second dog will be named Hank Schraeder.

Solid revenge thriller
19 August 2018 | by Luigi Di PillaSee all my reviews

I enjoyed it with my wife. It was entertaining and same time it offered some funny scenes. The story is well adapted for Bruce Willis and the running time was perfect. It's a fast paced thriller with lot of suspense. This is another example how movies of nowadays should be done. I give a 7 and my wife 6/10 = 6.5
