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

Did You Know?

Trivia

In the film Bruce Willis' character learns to fire a glock by watching a YouTube show called "Full Metal Tactics," hosted by real life green beret Shawn Vance. Roth named the show as a nod to Willis' co-star Vincent D'Onofrio who starred in "Full Metal Jacket." See more »

Goofs

In Paul Kersey's (Willis) shootout with the Black SUV carjacking, a woman is using a phone to video the action from a high angle, (a second floor apartment maybe). When the two detectives look at the footage, the angle is near ground level and not from above. See more »

Quotes

Paul Kersey: So there's nothing that I can do. Is that what you're saying?
Detective Kevin Raines: You can have faith.
[Paul looks at the bulletin board of unsolved murder cases]
Paul Kersey: How did faith work out for those people?

A Throwback Action Film
1 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

Do you remember when movies were made just to be movies, and not to push political agendas? Do you remember when movies where meant to be fun, and not lessons? Do you remember when action movies had a semblance of depth and were not just reliant on CGI?

I do. And so do the makers of Death Wish. Death Wish is a throwback to the good old days, the days of movies like Die Hard - just good solid action movies that took the time to build character and create interesting stories. Death WIsh is not 2 hours of people getting their head blown off (though there are heads blown off, don't worry). I was actually a bit afraid it might be, and was pleasantly surprised at how patient the film is, how it slowly builds its story to what I found to be a gripping conclusion. Death Wish is not really that inventive, but it seems inventive compared to what we've been getting from Hollywood lately. It's rare when you call something both a throwback and refreshing, but that's how I would describe Death Wish.

So in conclusion, if you are you're an average movie goer who wants nothing more than to see Avengers movies again, and again, and again, and who wants some trendy political message crammed down your throat while doing it, then you may not like Death Wish. Or if you are a paid film critic (which today means a paid social justice critic), you will also probably not like Death Wish as it has very little in the way of trendy social lessons on offer. It's just a good movie.
