Looks like a not as serious action movie compared to the original

With November’s Death Wish, his remake of the 1974 Charles Bronson favorite that spawned four sequels, director Eli Roth is all about bringing another generation’s iconic action star back into the type of box office hit he deserves.

A little different vibe than the original, but I'll be watching it.

Nothing I like better than movies that go after the bad guys!
Must be something wrong with me...I'll be going.

Looks great. It's a story that's been done countless times (The Punisher, et al), but this still seems worth seeing. And IRL Bruce Willis is a conservative so I'd rather see him on screen in this sort of role than the typical Hollywood cupcake poseur.

Uh-oh. Looks like the social justice warriors are already on the case.

Bruce Willis’ ‘Death Wish’ Remake Slammed As “Racist”, “Alt-Right” After Trailer Drops
Quote:
In a country where gun violence and racism remain hot-button topics, the trailer for the flick – in which Willis becomes a hoodie-wearing vigilante who uses his gun to clean up the streets – comes off as pretty tone-deaf. Twitter was quick to jump on this, noting Roth’s inability to read the room in a post-Trayvon Martin era.
I wasn't sure I would go see it opening weekend, but now...definitely.

That same thing happened when the original novel came out. And the original movie. The controversy only made the movie a bigger hit. I suspect much the same will happen here. The more the self-appointed guardians of righteousness scream about that people should avoid something, the more people want to see it.

Bruce is a good actor and he does bring a certain charm to the character but I for one prefer the more genuine, more gritty look and acting of the original.
