'Death Wish' - a man sees red' is as the title indicates, a copy/update of Michael Winner's film of the same name from 1974, when Charles Bronson was playing an architect whose wife and daughter were, respectively, murdered and raped by a group of thugs, prompting the architect to go berserk in a killing spree, and personally try to wipe out all criminals.
not a bad movie, but unfortunately triggered a long series of increasingly inferior sequels, as well as a deluge of similar selvtægtsfilm - the latest 'Taken'series, Liam Neeson as a retired avenger.
the Role like Paul Kersey - in this delivery is the surgeon - becomes the game søvngængeragtigt of Bruce Willis, who is not even trying to pretend that he believes in the project - and why on earth would we do it?
the Instruction is placed in the hands of Eli Roth, who primarily has done so within the so-called torturporno (*Hostel' m.fl.), and so you enough, what o'clock is turned.
In the original film went the jilted familiefars anger out of random criminals, while Kersey - working hætteklædt in Chicago's streets under the nickname the Man With the Scythe - here trying to unravel who was behind the fatal burglary. Maybe to give the story a kind of spændingskurve? It does not succeed.
the Film tries half-heartedly to raise a discussion on its own and the ease of access to weapons in the UNITED states, but it is shown most of flatteries, and it certainly has not the courage to take a stand - either for or against. And no, it is not because the want you to think for yourself. It is just in all ways lazy, flaccid and hopelessly banal films that just need one more bad excuse to revel in violence and torture.
The only redeeming element is actually a våbenreklame on the net that are so far out that it almost only can be taken from reality. So no, we don't need a deuce.
Medv.: Bruce Willis, Elisabeth Shue, Vincent D'Onofrio m.fl.
