"What if the cops can't handle this, Jack?"

1974's Death Wish (which initially went by the apt working title of The Sidewalk Vigilante) was released at the pinnacle of Hollywood's obsession with anti-hero movies. This screen adaptation of Brian Garfield's 1972 novel is functionally simplistic, lowering itself to the cerebral level required for straight-up exploitation (though it con... read more

Charles Bronson is always regarded as a great actor, but I really don't see why. In this film, his wife is murdered after watching her daughter get raped by thugs who break into their home.

Death Wish succeeds more as anti-liberal backlash than as a movie, with an engaging premise of a conscientious objector who takes up arms in the streets of New York City when he finds that the criminals have run rampant without anyone to stop them. Based on the novel by Brian Garfield, the premise of the film pushes forward the notion that if there aren't enough police to help protect the citizen... read more

Katsotut 2016 (235 movies items)

"Katsottu: 6.6.2016, rewatch, DVD Kyllähän tämä on mainio toimintadraama. Bronson tekee hyvän roolisuorituksen arkkitehti Paul Kerseynä, jonka vaimo ja tytär raiskataan ja vaimo myös tapetaan paikallisten huligaanien toimesta. Entinen aseistakieltäytyjä rupeaa putsaamaan New Yorkin katuja revolverinsa kanssa. "
