DEATH WISH (Theatrical Release USA 1974)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Death Wish—Charles Bronson classic—keeps its beat and shows well within its genre. While Clint Eastwood dominated this type of storyline and Bruce Willis added his own personal touch to this type of movie set, Charles Bronson cannot be faulted for his outstanding interpretation of a very adept vigilante hunter. He comes off as a no-nonsense, exceptionally hardened threat to evil.

Storyline

After his wife is murdered, a man hunts street persons who break the law.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This is a tough story. Be warned that the opening scenes are exceptionally graphic and realistic. The movie works as a guy flick and for Charles Bronson fans.
