    Not a fan of the director and not a fan of the cliche, but that didn't look TOO bad. A few John McLaine moments in there.

    that's my issue... Death Wish shouldn't be John McClaine-esque, IMO. The best thing about Death Wish was Bronson was just your regular joe... who literally went out hoping people would attack him so he could kill. This just looks lame... against the spirit of what made the original so gritty and dark.

    I think it would have been perfectly fine if they didn't brand it "Death Wish". People would make parallels, but it wouldn't have to be compared overtly to the earlier movie. IMO of course.

    saw the previews and instantly fell in love with it.... usually not a fan of remakes but this series could use a bit of modernizing.... just as they did with "The Mechanic" and Statham

    Still so-so on the movie, but dig the grindhouse trailer

    Gee, another remake from creative Hollywood. And if that trailer is real, it completely misses the point of the original.

    Looks like surgeon.

    It's Eli Roth. That should be enough to scream, "STAY AWAY!"
