    Synopsis


    Death Wish
    This drama about a man who takes the law into his own hands was wildly controversial upon first release, sparking much debate about the perceived pro-vigilante stance of the story, and established Charles Bronson as a major box office draw in the United States. Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) is a liberal architect living in New York City. One day, a group of drug-crazed thugs break into his apartment while he's gone, killing his wife Joanna (Hope Lange) and brutally raping his married daughter, leaving her comatose. When the police are unable to find the culprits, Kersey arms himself and begins patrolling the streets, killing muggers and thieves as he encounters them. While his obsessive search for street justice sickens him at first, in time Kersey begins to enjoy it and becomes a hunted man himself, as Police Detective Frank Ochoa (Vincent Gardenia) tries to find the man who is doing the police's job for them, and a bit too well. Jeff Goldblum made his screen debut as one of the lunatics who attacks Joanna. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Nice to finally get the 40th Anniversary blu-ray of Death Wish, movie still holds up even after 40 years. Charles Bronson in his heyday, an early appearance of Jeff Goldblum. Only caveat is for an anniversary edition it is a little light on the special features. Based on the strength of the movie itself it is highly recommended.

      controversial when it was first released, one would assume that would soften over time, especially after it's far more over the top and violent sequels and quasi remakes. Yet, somehow this film still makes a very real impact. A real piece of seventies cinema.

      It took until I was 38 to finally watch this movie and I am not sure why I did not watch it earlier. Charles Bronson really plays the role well and the setting of gritty New York really sucks you into the atmosphere.

      Death Wish was very shocking when it first came out. It still has the same feel of horror and fear. Bronson plays the part so well, it is like he has been a vigilante all his life! don't miss this one!

      It was nice to see this movie come to blu-ray. Anyone that is a fan of Charles Bronson should definitely own this version. This movie was one of the original "take matters into your own hands" movies.
