I don't remember too many films that earned an OP/ED piece in the New York Times, but this one did. Not only did this film make Charles Bronson a superstar it fully unsettled a nation's urban fears and more than a few people imitated what they saw on screen. The tag line was very memorable: ''Paul Kersey is going to kill 3 muggers tonight. One for his murdered wife, one for his raped daughter and one for you!'' The film worked and perhaps a bit too well because it spawned countless imitators and 4 sequels that were idiotic. The tragedy is DEATH WISH became a parody of itself. Skip the wannabes and cheer Bronson each time he wacks a bad guy here.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
