Now is one of those times that i wish that i was a better writer. Death Wish was a really good movie. Entertaining from the beginning to the end. The story was simple and easy to follow and it was just an easy, no brainer to sit there to watch and be entertained. Bruce Willis is not the greatest actor ever but he wants revenge on the gang who plotted the robbery of his house, killed his wife, stole all of his things and put his daughter into a coma. You know he is going to get it!
Willis plays a surgeon who works in the emergency room of a hospital in the South Side of Chicago so he is no stranger to violence. But, When it hits his house, he’s out for revenge. And revenge is exactly what he gets! he becomes a self-made vigilante and hunts down the murderer of his wife all while managing to hold down his job as head of the emergency room in the biggest hospital. I said it was entertaining, I didn’t say it was believable! He becomes a one man killing force who is able to solve the crime that Chicago’s police can’t and gets the revenge that he needs. Enjoyable, yes. Believable not so much.
