Normally I’m dead set against remakes. I don’t think they are needed and why pay to see a new old movie? However, this is most Bruce Willis has looked enthused with a role in a while. That and Death Wish was a guilty pleasure of a franchise back in the day.
Here is a synopsis of the film:
Dr. Paul Kersey is a surgeon who often sees the consequences of the city’s violence in the emergency room. When home intruders brutally attack his wife and young daughter, Kersey becomes obsessed with delivering vigilante justice to the perpetrators. As the anonymous slayings grab the media’s attention, the public begins to wonder if the deadly avenger is a guardian angel — or the Grim Reaper itself.
Death Wish is now playing in a theater near you.
