There's an undeniable thrill when Bronson blows away some sleazy mugger.

We know Bronson can be a tough guy, but not so much the mild-mannered guy; he seems to be trying to split the difference the whole time

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The violence is excessive and the plot predictable, although there is some style to director Winner's approach.

Poisonous incitement to do-it-yourself law enforcement is the vulgar exploitation hook on which Death Wish is awkwardly hung.

Christopher Null
Filmcritic.com

A compulsively watchable bit of '70s nostalgia, a curious counterpart to Dirty Harry and an icon of New York-brand justice.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Winner's recourse to caricature when dealing with police and thugs, and his virtually overt sympathies with the confused, violent Bronson, make for uncritical, simplistic viewing.

It's a despicable movie, one that raises complex questions in order to offer bigoted, frivolous, oversimplified answers.

The movie has an eerie kind of fascination, even though its message is scary.

First (and easily the best) dark adventure of vigilante Paul Kersey.

Q Network Film Desk

Even those who disagree with its knee-jerk vigilante ideology have a hard time denying its impact because the film digs deep and works on an almost subconscious level.

Sumptuously photographed and scored, the movie is an excellent capsule of '70s filmmaking -- thrilling, thought provoking and sending us off with a wink at the end.
