Death Wish Reviews

September 2, 2019
Death Wish isn't unwatchable, but it is dreadfully boring to an almost insulting extent. The film caters to obvious action thriller and revenge film stereotypes. It lacks stimulation of any kind and is the most generic vengeance imaginable.

Its tons of clichés, the shortcomings of its script and a somewhat vague direction by Roth make the film very far from being outstanding. [Full Review in Spanish]

Feels like the wrong movie in the wrong time, a rote and needless remake where even its star seems bored, sleepwalking from one gleeful act of brutality to another.

Too many issues with this movie on almost every level for me to recommend.

Eli Roth has proven consistently that he has a pretty loosey-goosey understanding of human nature, let alone basic cinematic grammar.

Death Wish was a movie. It had some quality Roth-style gore, including some pretty creative use of battery acid, but that's about all I can really say.

A remake that doesn't matter. Eli Roth follows basic steps towards 'B' cinema and barely makes the movie survive. [Full review in Spanish].

The notion of an affluent white man taking to the streets with a gun to exact some sort of self-styled justice was a bit troublesome even 40 years ago, but in today's climate, it's downright unsettling.

The experience of viewing Death Wish can be described as awkward at best.

No doubt though, Willis fans won't feel too disappointed by his trademark creation of aimless, uninspired carnage even though they know his better days are far behind him.

This remake is superficially interested in its characters and the debate of vigilante justice versus the justice system but it's never willing to explore either in any depth.

In all of the nightmare scenarios that Eli Roth has cooked up in the past, he probably couldn't have written a more unwelcoming and hostile zeitgeist to deliver his latest film...into.
October 31, 2018
A boring, stupid, badly-made, thematically-incoherent, paint-by-numbers, totally disposable movie

The original Death Wish reflected its era. The remake of Death Wish also reflects its era. Too bad it reflects the regressive and static nature of our national obsession with firearms.
September 8, 2018
Crass, cynical and devoid of merit.
August 28, 2018
I like Eli Roth and Bruce Willis, but I couldn't wait to get out of the theater.
August 27, 2018
Death Wish is at least an example of the kind of adult cinema now rarely served to the masses - it's just too bad Roth and Carnahan didn't set a course for something more subversive or compelling.
August 25, 2018
The movie has its fun moments, but in the end, it doesn't make the shoot em up genre look good. Just not now guys.
August 14, 2018
The dialogue is lazy and mostly terrible, as are most of the action sequences.
June 17, 2018
The good news: Despite all the worries that this would be nothing more than an alt-right wet dream in which Bruce Willis guns down scores of blacks and Muslims, the film is actually restrained in such matters. The bad news: It still isn't very good.
