…‘Taken' in Eli Roth's Remake.

"MGM has released the first Death Wish trailer. Eli Roth's upcoming remake stars Bruce Willis as Paul Kersey, a mild-mannered Chicago architect who goes on a quest for bloody revenge after his wife (Elizabeth Shue) and daughter (Camila Morrone) are the victims of a violent home invasion.

Charles Bronson starred in the original 1974 film, which spawned four sequels. Joe Carnahan (The Grey) penned the script for the remake. The movie will be Bruce Willis' first starring role in a theatrically released feature since 2013's RED 2. For Roth, this is his first foray into the action genre after making his name with horror films like Cabin Fever, Hostel, and The Green Inferno.

This trailer is kind of all over the place. The film very much looks like it wants to be in the vein of John Wick, Taken, or even a street-level superhero movie, but I can't tell if it wants to actually take the violence seriously or if it's tackling it gleefully. Roth is certainly a curious choice to direct, and indeed Joe Carnahan was originally in line to direct this remake from his own script before parting ways over creative differences. Carnahan remains the only credited screenwriter, which is also interesting because in the wake of leaving the project, Carnahan expressed his desire to someday retool his screenplay into a different version of what that film would've been…"

Thanks for the warning, plan on skipping this one. Charles Bronson for the win.

Well due to one review that cannot be posted here I am liking this movie more and more.

In 2007 two vigilante/vengeance films came out within two weeks of each other, Death Sentence with Kevin Bacon and The Brave One with Jodie Foster.

Of those two, I liked the Bacon one way better than the Foster one. The media critics chose the opposite, of course. That's just one of many reasons for why I think movie critics aren't really going to necessarily help me decide what to watch.

Movie critics rarely agree with my analysis

I'm waiting for Bruce's action epic centered on a senior living center……………
