Death Wish

With the police overloaded with crimes, the doctor, burning for revenge, hunts for his family’s assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media’s attention, the city wonders if this deadly avenger is a guardian angel... or a grim reaper.

Jamal-Dean Grootboom quote iconWillis the walking dead in an elitist 'Wish' remake.

Ilan Preskovsky quote iconWho actually wanted this Death Wish remake?

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconI have no idea if this offering will gain enough traction in today's climate to resurrect Willis' star (please don't let there be another Death Wish 2, More Deadly Wishes and The Deadliest Wish), but it never should have seen the light of day, let alone a projector.

Tomatometer quote iconDeath Wish is little more than a rote retelling that lacks the grit and conviction of the original -- and also suffers from spectacularly bad timing.
