anyway, I've never seen this... It slipped through the cracks or something... I don't know how because as a kid I loved reading The Punisher comics which is basically the same thing as this, except he wears a skull on his chest instead of a flat mustaches.
Um... So I remember reading in some article... this guy stated that Death Wish represented the moral corruption of society and was a low point in cinema history. I guess he said that because of the ending... but whatever. However, the movie does kind of boil down to one point and once its made there's not many places it can go. I did love to see Bronson trying to act like a normal person in the beginning of this though... yeah, I can totally see him drawing up housing blueprints and doing site surveys. Plus there's a scene (I guess where Bronson gets his inspiration to start killing people) shot in Old Tuscon... and that's a pre-fire Old Tuscon, which is... probably only interesting to me. It was also cool to see a young Jeff Goldblum playing Freak #1.
For some reason, I never fully connected with this movie. I don't think it's bad, but I kinda saw the entire movie in the first scene (and, you know, years and years of having it in the ether) so I guess watching it was kind of like buying the Cars DVD just because you have all the other Pixar discs...
