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

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

"4.3. Charles Bronson ärsyyntyy Jeff Goldblumista niin pahasti, että mies alkaa tappaa köyhiä. Tolkun ihmisten konsensus tuntuu olevan se, että näio. Leffa ottaa itsensä turhan vakavasti, jolloin viihdyttävän pyssyleikin sijaan katsojan naamaa vasten hierotaan sitä, miten paljon parempi paikka maailma olisikaan, jos rikolliset vain tapettaisiin."

" Date: 3/19/2019 Viewed: Amazon Prime Re-Watch Note: Still a great classic after all of these years. Every time when I revisit this movie, I feel like I'm watching this movie in the 1970s. This movie does an awesome job of showing the violent underbelly parts of New York in the 1970s. You also have great action and good characters as well. Check out this classic if you haven't seen it yet."

"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."
