Strange things are happening with this Death Wish remake. First, it doesn’t look awful and something to deride as would be expected. Second, Walter_B looks, almost, like the old Willis from pre-Sixth Sense.
What is going on!
Dr. Paul Kersey is a surgeon who often sees the consequences of the city’s violence in the emergency room. When home intruders brutally attack his wife and young daughter, Kersey becomes obsessed with delivering vigilante justice to the perpetrators. As the anonymous slayings grab the media’s attention, the public begins to wonder if the deadly avenger is a guardian angel — or the Grim Reaper itself.
‘I want to buy a gun’. This line alone has probably already knocked 15% of the Rotten Tomatoes score. Had Kersey said, ‘I just want to ask them why they did it’ instead, 15% would probably have been added. See how it works?
Death Wish is released on March 2nd.
