    Death Wish (1974)

    Bronson's "performance" is wooden and uninteresting (he has no charisma). The script is banal, the characterization is nonexistent, and the dialogue is flat and not particularly memorable. It also supports fascist ideologies like vigilantism, unlimited and unquestioned punishment to criminals. It's a film that the NRA would have backed financially. YET, Winner's direction is stylish and the film is solidly entertaining, so it earns its 2.5 stars.
