Ol' Bronson returns home and after visiting his daughter in hospital and promptly fails to display one iota of emotion as he goes about his daily business.

Eventually he reignites his buried pass... read more

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. "
