Death Wish = (4/5)
Death Wish felt like an old school action movie but it’s okay because that is its purpose. I get why most of the people hated this film; yes Bruce Willis and director Eli Roth aren’t a good tandem, but the result of the movie is still satisfyingly good. I have not seen the original Death Wish so I have no stand which one is better. This remake managed to entertain me big time, from Bruce Willis being calm and a loving father from the beginning to being a raging beast and would sacrifice everything for his family. I find the sequences really fun, and you’d notice the Eli Roth bloody segments in the film, however those gore scenes doesn’t give that eerie feeling compared to his previous movies, but it still did. The dialogues in this film felt really flat and it is obvious that Bruce Willis doesn’t give a damn about this movie.. but I still enjoyed Death Wish a lot nonetheless.
