July 24, 2019
The problem is that the film is more than its good performances, and in everything else it floats more or less strikingly. [Full Review in Spanish]
May 22, 2019
Despite being like tons of other movies, it's a fun one-time action thrill ride with a protagonist whose pain you understand.
December 21, 2018
The story is captivating and the resolution satisfying. But is this pro-gun, heroic vigilante scenario irresponsible? Yes and no.
October 31, 2018
Roth evokes both personal and social responsibility.
June 12, 2018
Someday [Eli] Roth will apply his horror-movie instincts to material that can make them sing, and he will make a classic. As it is, Death Wish is far better-wrought than it could have been, or deserved to be.
June 8, 2018
It's a perfectly fine revenge thriller. Nothing special. Just adequate.
April 9, 2018
Hey, it's got Bruce Willis shooting a lot of bad guys - what's not to like? That said, in this era of the ubiquitous satnav, it will definitely make you think twice about valet parking.
April 6, 2018
Roth's contemporary riff on the notorious 1974 thriller reaffirms its pulp fiction origins and puts the hardcore entertainment value back into the controversy of public paranoia over crime.
April 3, 2018
A thriller of fierce, resounding vengeance, shot with elegance and force. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 20, 2018
The kind of midnight hour action film that engrosses with its steady pace, over the top violence and Willis' on key performance.
March 13, 2018
The result is a satisfying melodrama.
March 12, 2018
This movie feels like an old-school action movie and that's its purpose. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 12, 2018
Arguing the new Death Wish unreservedly supports the views of the gun-toting, 'by my cold dead hands' American conservative would require at certain moments the viewer to close their eyes and block their ears.
March 9, 2018
Entertaining and amusing and charming in its refusal to dismiss the cathartic nature of retributive violence.
March 8, 2018
"Death Wish" is a pleasant surprise on many levels.
March 7, 2018
...embraces the gleefully grotesque, cartoonish excesses of its genre, and comes out well ahead on points.
March 6, 2018
Morally indefensible, yet I can't deny how much I enjoyed it
March 6, 2018
Willis' casting is crucial...because Roth's coldly calculated if simple-minded thriller exists in a 80s action-movie world totally tone-deaf in today's climate.
March 3, 2018
Death Wish is weightless enough to be intermittently fun, and fun, no matter how mittent, is an underrated cinematic quality.
March 2, 2018
As unnecessary remakes go, this one has a strange pull. Willis is giving a genuine performance in the middle of all the carnage, building fine moments opposite Vincent D'Onofrio.
