  1. HKFanatic's rating of the film Death Wish

    It looks as though Eli Roth's remake will indulge in the kind of white male power fantasy the original was long accused of being - but never really was. Charles Bronson has too much of a wounded quality, a brokenness to him as stalks the streets of Seventies New York like some displaced specter. His low-key performance, along with the grimy photography and atmospheric score, add a welcome level of verisimilitude.

  2. Aardsy's rating of the film Death Wish

    New York is a deadly hellscape. Thanks, liberals!

  6. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Death Wish

    It's way too boring to justify being as stupid as it is but there are moments that are luridly captivating in that way only old garbage seems to be able to pull off. For fans of this type of material only.

  7. Zach Closs's rating of the film Death Wish

    No, it isn't exactly admirable politically. But I mean, if I'm watching a Charles Bronson movie called fucking "Death Wish" odds are I'm not exactly looking for a compassionate and thoughtful liberal antihero who sends conciliatory letters to his enemies.

  8. Amandenberg's rating of the film Death Wish

    Do these Death Wish marathons still happen? I used to look forward to those all year.

  9. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film Death Wish

    All right wing politics aside this is a solid vintage thriller where Bronson turns in a quite nuanced performance. The movie works really while for about an hour and then it slowly goes downhill. When Kersey has become the avenger the plot gets very repetitious and Kersey basically just walks around shooting criminals. Sure there is a subplot about the police chasing him but it all feels like an afterthought.

  10. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film Death Wish

    Certainly well made, fairly well acted (save Vincent Gardenia, who seems to think he's on the stage..PROJECTING!), however it's also so reactionary it's infuriating. Who REALLY wants to sympathize with Charles Bronson as a distraught widower on a killing spree?

  11. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Death Wish

    An eye for a very illiberal eye… Little more than a right-ring reactionary exploiter. Winner lays it on with a shovel with no room for liberal discourse, just a single-minded series of manipulative knee-jerks towards brute vengeance. It has a certain spaced-out economy of style and moves at a fair lick, but this is nothing in the way of commendation. Hancock’s score merely adds to the heavy underlining.

  12. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Death Wish

    a totally understandable acting @ revenge - good movie, but too bad they hadn't already video-cams @ groceries..!

  13. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film Death Wish

    Michael Winners best film by a long long way

  14. Cole Caudle's rating of the film Death Wish

    A film that had New Yorkers lined up for blocks in order to cheer and celebrate Bronson as he shot emaciated drug addicts in Central Park. The 70's were a special time.

  15. Jason Callen's rating of the film Death Wish

  16. Gylfi's rating of the film Death Wish

    I really liked this movie. Bronson is terrific in his role and the music by Herbie Hencock keeps things rolling along nicely. That infamous rape scene is still quite shocking. Damn you Jeff Goldblum, you should be ashamed of yourself !

    "Death Wish was a catalyst for a lot of Satanic feelings — where the hunted becomes the hunter. But every competent sorcerer knows that's the only way to survive magically." - Anton Szandor LaVey
