Bruce Willis Is Back
It's 12.30am over here in Malaysia, and yesterday was the premiere of Eli Roth's "Death Wish Movie," starring the legendary Bruce Willis. Now, firstly, I have not seen the original, but as a big fan of Eli Roth's horror movies, I had to watch it and I have to say, it's very well executed by Master of Horror, Eli Roth. It's a violent revenge action movie. It's no ordinary direct-to-video movie or overrated Hollywood movie. Most importantly, it's a movie that finally stars Bruce Willis as the main man, bringing back the action in the old school way. It also stars great actors such as Vincent D'Onofrio and Elisabeth Shue. It's definitely awesome to see a Hollywood legend kicking ass, the old school way, on the big screen. It's all thanks to Eli Roth, and God bless him for bringing back Bruce Willis.
Ignore the critics backlash
One only has to notice the difference between the critics ratings and user ratings to see there is a definite agenda to trash this movie as part of this sudden anti gun agenda in Hollywood. I'm often the first to ignore a movie based on poor critic ratings but am glad I looked past them to go see this. This movie is exactly what we all thought it would be: revenge based action flick with some wit scattered throughout. Bruce Willis nailed the lead role and Dean Norris was perfect as the detective trying to figure out just who this vigilante was. I'll address some of the critic complaints pertaining to this movie, specifically and abundance of unneeded gore and endless media hyping of the vigilante. First, there was only two brief scenes that I recall where the blood and guts were perhaps a bit much. Even then, very brief. Secondly, while there was some parts of the movie showing radio and TV talking heads debating the vigilante, it was not "endless" as some have described. Overall, Bruce Willis was perfect as a replacement for Charles Bronson and as other reviewers have mentioned likely a far better choice than Sylvester Stallone. I really doubt anyone who wants to be entertained by an action flick would be disappointed with Death Wish.

Better than the original
My kids made me go see this movie, and after watching it I was glad they did. The story different enough to make this one seem very "now", so comparing this movie to the 1974 original is really not fair to either movie. Bruce Willis is good, Elisabeth Shue is good, the detectives are good. The movie doesn't run long, is paced well and I liked the action. Movies are supposed to entertain and this one is entertaining.
I remember seeing the original Death Wish in a drive-in. It was good, too. I hope they do a sequel for this one.
