Bruce Willis is making a comeback in a big way with the remake of “Death Wish.”
The original starred Charles Bronson in 1974.
Same premise, different actors.
Dr. Paul Kersey is an experienced trauma surgeon, a man who has spent his life saving the lives of people on the verge of death. But when his wife is killed and his daughter rendered comatose after a brutal home invasion, Kersey uses his unique skills to become the vigilante killer nicknamed “The Grim Reaper.”
But, the remake isn’t without controversy. Some are bothered by the right wing message and change of setting from New York to Chicago as a problematic attack on minorities.
Not to mention, it’s a seasoned white man who becomes a heavily armed vigilante against civilians many of whom are Black.
See some of Twitters reactions:
The film stars Bruce Willis, Vincent D’Onofrio, Dean Norris, Elizabeth Shue, Mike Epps, Camila Morrone, and Kimberly Elise.
It hits theaters on November 22, 2017. Check your local listings for theaters and showtimes.
And cut the “racist” theory.
Go watch the original.
Some black criminals got killed in that one also. That’s life.
