Death Wish Series Episode 1

Before New York had Giuliani, Paul Kersey was there to clean up the streets!

In 1974 Charles Bronson made his entry in the self-defense/revenge genre with Death Wish. The film is a gritty look at a New Yorker who is pushed to the breaking point by the city’s rampant crime. Based on a novel, is this just another grim exploitation flick, or does it Wish to be something more? Load up with Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob as they begin their series reviewing all the Death Wish films–ending with the Eli Roth/Bruce Willis reboot this November!
