Classic, gritty vigilante actioner!

"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. 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

"Death Wish" (1974)

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

A New York City architect becomes a one-man vigilante squad after his wife is murdered by street punks; he randomly goes out and kills would-be muggers on the mean streets after dark.The release of the recent remake finally gave me an excuse to get around to this one. :-) For me, it wasn't the most exciting film to watch. Personally, the 70s is probably my least favourite era of film, because it's the beginning of the time when grisly subjects and especially profanity were starting to become more commonplace, and they hadn't quite perfected it yet.However, Death Wish does raise questions about dealing with crime that are still relevant today, especially given what made the news earlier this year. (It's not often that you'll hear me get political, but in this ca” read more

" Watched: 2/16/2018 Rating: 7.5 Format: Blu Ray I liked the fact that he never kills the guys that actually do the crime that sets him off and he ends up just killing a bunch of random thugs. "

"January 6th, 2018. I watched this for the sake of seeing what the upcoming remake with Bruce Willis would be like; I actually enjoy the grounded, realistic take on the vigilante and immediately labeled Charles Bronson as one of my favorite action actors."
