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. 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.

Films That DESERVE A Remake (6 movies items)

"The Premise? An everyday man going vigilante to punish street criminals Why Should It Be Remade? Death Wish has such a malleable story. The original movie is fantastic, but it'd be intriguing to see a contemporary take on vigilantism; one which further examines the moral implications of taking the law into one's own hands, which observes more contemporary criminals, and which explores the plausibility of getting away with killing scum in today's world (where most everything is captured by surve"

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"Poisonous incitement to do-it-yourself law enforcement is the vulgar exploitation hook on which Death Wish is awkwardly hung. - Variety t's a despicable movie, one that raises complex questions in order to offer bigoted, frivolous, oversimplified answers. - Vincent Canby, New York Times "
