Watched it last night. Enjoyable flick. A little anti-gun nonsense in the gun store (anyone can get a gun, wink wink) plus ALL the AR15's were fully automatic machine guns. No wonder the average politician and uninformed citizen thinks these guns are death spraying machine guns.
Other than that, a decent, fun movie.

You clearly need to see Die Hard a few (dozen) more times.
I know it's a Christmas movie, but you're running behind, so there's no shame in catching up off-season.
I predict that there will be many suggestions and statements about the law made here, and some of them will be spectacularly wrong. - jhe888

I thought the new movie was "meh." Eli Roth is good at exploitation, but when he's working with this kind of budget with Bruce Willis, of course it'll be tamer and glossier than his usual b-flicks. Roth's touches pop up a little in the garage interrogation scene. The original Death Wish did a better job of being grimier and unpolished. Also, Charles Bronson was more believable as a pacifist forced into the vigilante role.
Elisabeth Shue has a small thankless role, but as an '80s kid I was very excited about her short scene with Vincent D'Onofrio in the beginning. I was like, "Hey, it's an Adventures in Babysitting reunion - Chris Parker and Thor in fake Chicago together again!

It was kind of what I expected. the theater was packed for the 7:05 showing.
Bruce will probably not be winning any awards for this one.

The left is pissing themselves over this movie. I am going to go see this in the theater now just because it makes libs sad.
I went to see it last week simply because I knew the lib's and antigunners were all upset with it and I figure anything that piss's them off is a good thing. I really enjoyed it. Will it ever be a classic? Hardly but when it comes out on dvd I'll buy a copy and watch it from time to time.

I enjoyed that it was somewhat campy like the original (whether the original was meant to be that way or just as a testament as to how 1970s cinema has held up when viewed present day)

'Twas pretty good. I was expecting there to be more racial chitchat due to him killing blacks when he first started out. As it is, I was getting annoyed at Sway talking about how bad vigilante justice was when crime is so rampant in the city.

It'd be more accurate to suggest Eastwood stole it from Bronson in the original Death Wish.
I'll buy the DVD, sight-unseen, just 'cuz the snowflakes got their collective panties all in a bunch over it.
Besides: Hardly a Bruce Willis movie I've ever seen wasn't worth shelf space in the personal video library

In recent years, when Bruce plays the good guy, it's a movie worth buying. When he is the bad guy, it's often a straight to DVD dud that he just took a pay check for.
