Death Wish


deathwishWhen his wife is murdered and daughter raped by a gang of thugs, a liberal architect (Charles Bronson) turns into a vigilante.Ā No gun nut could ever resist this celebration of a man who cleans up the streets of New York on his own ā€“ too bad though that the filmmakers ignored the part in author Brian Garfieldā€™s book where vigilantism turns out not to be such a simple solution. The film is both cruel and absurd at times (the muggers mostly behave like a combo of apes and silent film villains)ā€¦ but it is also exciting, well directed and Bronsonā€™s character is of course easy to empathize with.
