Australian distributor dumped the film in cinemas in April 2018 with little fanfare and when it came time for the home entertainment release, they issued a heavily cropped 1.78: 1 version of the film that severely compromised the original scope (2.39:1) aspect ratio. On top of that, the US and foreign DVDs/Blu-rays of the film have special features, commentary, making-of, etc, while the Australian release is completely bare bones. See more »

When the title is shown on screen, it is faded away by the image of "flatlining" on a medical monitor. This effect is used in the closing credits as well. See more »
The UK theatrical version was cut by 14 seconds to reduce a torture scene. This was done to earn a 15 certificate after the uncut version originally received an 18. The uncut version was later released on home media formats. See more »
My kids made me go see this movie, and after watching it I was glad they did. The story different enough to make this one seem very "now", so comparing this movie to the 1974 original is really not fair to either movie. Bruce Willis is good, Elisabeth Shue is good, the detectives are good. The movie doesn't run long, is paced well and I liked the action. Movies are supposed to entertain and this one is entertaining.
I remember seeing the original Death Wish in a drive-in. It was good, too. I hope they do a sequel for this one.
