Storyline

Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city's violence as it's rushed into his ER -until his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and college-age daughter (Camila Morrone) are viciously attacked in their suburban home. With the police overloaded with crimes, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts for his family's assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media's attention, the city wonders if this deadly avenger is a guardian angel...or a grim reaper. Fury and fate collide in the intense action-thriller Death Wish. Written by MGM

Wow
5 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

You can read the plot details on the other reviews, and you've probably seen the earlier version with Bronson.

Did you enjoy the original "Death Wish?" Did you enjoy "Die Hard?" Do you like Bruce Willis in general?

Got at least one out of three? Go see this.
