Death Wish

Exploitation director Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel, The Green Inferno) replaces Charles Bronson with Bruce Willis in this slightly less serious remake of 1974's infamous revenge drama Death Wish. Bruce turns vigilante and goes gunning for some robbers after his family is violently attacked in a home invasion. The script by Joe Carnahan (The A-Team, Smokin' Aces, The Grey) tries to update the story by including lots of criticism of the media—but this was more timely in crime-ravaged, pre-Taxi Driver, pre-Guardian Angels, pre-Falling Down, pre-"The Punisher" '70s New York City. 107 minutes R.
