Movie review: Death Wish

I really liked this movie. Earlier, I was so bummed when I was told this was my movie for the week. I begrudgingly said yes, and stewed about it for days.

The movie started and I was literally glued to the screen. I’m not into action at all, but this movie had enough substance that I was hooked from the beginning. Bruce Willis was awesome. There was never a dull moment, and let me tell you this, you will root for him like crazy.

The only reason I’m giving it a B+ instead of an A+ is there was one tiny plot hole that is still kind of boggling my brain. I won’t say what it is because it would ruin some other points for you. It’s not a big deal, but I’m one of those OCD people; the smallest things bother me terribly.

I would recommend this movie. It’s a story where you root for the hero/victim and applaud when he pulls off some cool stuff, and boo when the bad guys are on screen. Our theater was full, and for quite a few moments there was laughter and yelling. It was a fun night at the movies.

Grade: B+

  1. We own a movie theater (and a small one 4 screens so we often have to decide between movies). PG family movies do the best for us, and yes R does the worst. If we are deciding between 2 horror movies for instance, we almost always will go with the PG-13 one. But A LOT of movies fall in that Pg-13 rating. From something like Ant-Man which was fairly benign to something like Insidious which was NOT benign at all. It is hard to get a PG rating nowadays, and most movies don”t want to be there unless they are marketed to kids. 🙂

    1. Those are fascinating insights! I bet there’s a whole unknown universe of things that go on in movie theaters…

      BTW, I really did like Ant Man…it was light and fun, which is what I need mostly when I go to the theater.

      PG-13 is about right for a lot of movies. An R rating can be intense, or barely R. Too wide a spread. I’d like to see a new rating, like R-13 or something.
