Bruce Willis is Dr. Paul Kersey. Dr. Kersey has a great life, he is a surgeon at a Chicago Hospital; Paul has a lovely wife and a daughter who has just been accepted to a New York University. Life is good!!
Dr. Kersey was called back to the hospital on the evening he had planned to celebrate his Birthday with his family, unbeknownst to the Kersey family a band of burglars had staked out their home for an invasion. The burglars broke in and a scuffle took place. Mother and daughter were both shot. When Dr. Kersey finds out what happened, he eventually puts a plan in place to deliver his own kind of justice and revenge. The story unfolds from there…
Charles Bronson will always be the best at the Death Wish movies, but this version with Bruce Willis is not bad!! There isn’t much in the way of new ground being covered, but the movie is still entertaining. You will find yourself rooting for the “Grim Reaper” Character that Dr. Kersey becomes.
There is plenty of suspense, action and intrigue. There is even some comic relief. My husband even found the movie enjoyable!!
Despite what the paid critics think, I say that this new installment of “Death Wish” is worth a look!
This is a 3 Star Movie!
