In Singapore, the film was initially passed uncut with an M18 rating; due to stronger instances of violence. However the distributors were unsatisfied with this rating and then opted to re-edit the film in order to secure the more commercially friendly NC-16 rating. See more »
One only has to notice the difference between the critics ratings and user ratings to see there is a definite agenda to trash this movie as part of this sudden anti gun agenda in Hollywood. I'm often the first to ignore a movie based on poor critic ratings but am glad I looked past them to go see this. This movie is exactly what we all thought it would be: revenge based action flick with some wit scattered throughout. Bruce Willis nailed the lead role and Dean Norris was perfect as the detective trying to figure out just who this vigilante was. I'll address some of the critic complaints pertaining to this movie, specifically and abundance of unneeded gore and endless media hyping of the vigilante. First, there was only two brief scenes that I recall where the blood and guts were perhaps a bit much. Even then, very brief. Secondly, while there was some parts of the movie showing radio and TV talking heads debating the vigilante, it was not "endless" as some have described. Overall, Bruce Willis was perfect as a replacement for Charles Bronson and as other reviewers have mentioned likely a far better choice than Sylvester Stallone. I really doubt anyone who wants to be entertained by an action flick would be disappointed with Death Wish.
