Avis des critiques

[In The Big Heat,] Lang leads us to believe, to feel, that happiness is inevitable for these two, that good things happen to good people. But it’s not, they don’t. The pair put to bed their daughter, the scene resplendent and everyone smiling, when Lang throws the pendulum so harshly in the other direction as to create emotional whiplash… Winner, less a cynic than a leech, attempts something similar in Death Wish, but he lacks the conviction and gravitas to pull it off.

Whatever its demerits technically and morally, Death Wish is at least clear about its convictions and gives the audience exactly what they came to see: a right-wing fantasy (for lack of a more nuanced political characterization) about standing your ground.

In Death Wish’s last shot, Bronson, after having been ordered by the police to leave New York because of his actions, looks directly past the camera at some rowdy hoodlums, broadly smiles and aims a finger gun right at us, intimating that he will continue to kill society’s bad guys. It’s an image that slyly looks ahead to the ever escalating, increasingly mindless violence in the glut of testosterone-fueled, revenge-centered movies that would define American action cinema in the eighties.
