First Look at the Remake of Death Wish Is Here

DeathWish2017

Bruce Willis goes on a crusade for justice after his wife is murdered, in the new trailer for Death Wish. A certified Hollywood legend, there was a time when Willis was undoubtedly one of the biggest stars in the entire world.

Charles Bronson starred in the original 1974 film, which spawned four sequels. It's been awhile since Willis has played the lead in an action film that just about anyone would call truly great - and casting him also brings along all of his John McClane baggage, as that character has evolved into nearly a superhero in latter Die Hard entries. We mean, given all the racial and economic coding present in the original, you think they might have changed it, or tried to complicate it in someway, but Roth's made a decision to keep all that shit in place, and it still rings as a little fascist no matter how many times Sway shows up to tell us it's cool. "The fun is watching him go insane and watching someone slowly move the moral goal post".


So, after sitting through this trailer for what seemed like an eternity, it's easy to come to the conclusion that this Death Wish remake looks no different than one of those straight to VOD, low-budget action flicks with actors that you've never heard of before. What's interesting about "Death Wish" is it's not a Central Intelligence Agency guy who's coming out of retirement, you know, he's not John Wick, he's not a professional assassin.

There's plenty of that in his new film "Death Wish". "The very things that make him a good surgeon are what eventually make him a great killer".
