Death Wish (2018) | Ratings & Reviews

"It's hard to think of a worse time for this movie to come out. Eli Roth's remake of the vigilante classic is what I imagine George Zimmerman's favourite NRA TV show is like. Its release now — between the recent Parkland massacre and the upcoming US gun law reform march the school shooting inspired — is a bit like a Harvey Weinstein sex comedy starring Bill Cosby coming out late last year."

""Death Wish," make no mistake, is a movie that has its heart in the wrong place."

VarietyVariety

"An imbecilic misfire."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Ironically, a film about a guy with guts doesn't have any itself."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Seems to settle on, as one of its onscreen commentators puts it, "normalising dangerous behaviour"."

"He's not remaking Death Wish. He's making what he thinks a person in 1974, sitting in a Forty-Deuce grindhouse theatre, would have seen in their mind while watching it ..."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"To criticise Death Wish for its indelicate timing would be to suggest that there might ever be an appropriate moment to see it."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Though armed with enough gore and pandering violence to enjoy some success with moviegoers who haven't yet been burned by star Bruce Willis' many recent flops, this generic attempt at a franchise reboot deserves to be killed."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Embraces the gleefully grotesque, cartoonish excesses of its genre, and comes out well ahead on points."

FilmInkFilmInk

"Unlike the original Death Wish where violence ruins everything it touches, in the remake, it's a cure-all. Happiness is only a semi-automatic away."
