There's an undeniable thrill when Bronson blows away some sleazy mugger. Full Review

Poisonous incitement to do-it-yourself law enforcement is the vulgar exploitation hook on which Death Wish is awkwardly hung. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- The movie has an eerie kind of fascination, even though its message is scary. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- It's a despicable movie, one that raises complex questions in order to offer bigoted, frivolous, oversimplified answers.

Oddly enough, the film is the first in quite a while to give Bronson a chance to actually act and he is very up to the task. Full Review

Death Wish is a remarkable social artefact, a valuable record of the day before yesterday - 1974 - when New York and many other American cities seemed in large part ungovernable. Full Review

Product Description:

Charles Bronson stars in a genre-defining vigilante thriller that made him a household name. A fatal sexual assault on his wife and daughter leads mild-mannered architect Paul Kersey (Bronson) to rethink the justice system in his own terms when he discovers the police to be ineffectual, bureaucratic slackers. He then starts to single-handedly reduce New York's crime rate by murdering every thug, scumbag, and no goodnik he lays eyes on. The film, despite its use of graphic violence as entertainment, was hailed as a socially complex and engaging movie that shocked audiences across the country. Subsequently, Bronson filmed a long series of films as Kersey that were heavier on violence than substance. However, DEATH WISH is a classic American film whose themes and style have been imitated by filmmakers all over the world.
