Death Sentence Review

I include this movie as the final entry in the Death Wish review series because in a sense it is kind of a reboot of said series. Once again a white collar business man witnesses an unspeakable tragedy with his family, and fed up with how the law fails to act, decides to take matters… Continue reading Death Sentence Review

Death Wish V: The Face of Fear Review

Paul Kersey had the worst damn luck of perhaps any movie character in history. I would say tied with John McLane, but all McLane had to worry about was getting trapped in the occasional building. Kersey repeatedly has loved ones mowed down in gruesome life scarring ways. At the time of this movie he is… Continue reading Death Wish V: The Face of Fear Review

Death Wish 4: The Crackdown Review

Paul Kersey is headed west, again for the fourth installment of the Death Wish series. This time around there is a bit more plot, but still just as much action including what is admittedly a pretty awesome finale involving a bazooka. That said, Bronson really started looking to old and worn out for the part… Continue reading Death Wish 4: The Crackdown Review

Death Wish 3 Review

Death Wish 3 is as perfect a bad movie as I can imagine. It is completely over the top and makes absolutely no pretenses as to what it is about. Paul Kersey is far removed from the meek and mild architect from the first movie and has now become a professional “neighborhood population control expert”.… Continue reading Death Wish 3 Review

Death Wish 2 Review

Death Wish goes west is probably a more appropriate title to this sequel. As a kid in love with macho badasses Charles Bronson was, of course, one of my heroes. And in retrospect it is Bronson’s presence alone that saves this one from being a nearly complete dud, that and cheesy lines every now and… Continue reading Death Wish 2 Review

Death Wish Review

This is unapologetic male revenge fantasy, made all the more powerful and terrifying by how gritty and realistic it is portrayed. The character of Paul Kersey is not the sort of man you expect to see played by Charles Bronson, at first that is. He’s a quiet architect whose politics definitely lean toward the anti-gun… Continue reading Death Wish Review

The Dead Pool Review

It had completely escaped my memory that both Liam Neeson and Jim Carrey (in yes, their only movie together) appeared in the fifth and final installment of the Dirty Harry franchise known as “The Dead Pool”. Those are two of my favorite actors for very different reasons, and if any modern actor was going to… Continue reading The Dead Pool Review

The Enforcer Review

In this the third installment of the Dirty Harry series, Harry Callahan takes on a group of Mayor kidnapping hippy-terrorists known as the People's Revolutionary Strike Force (PRSF), Black Extremists, and also deals with feminism in his own unique way. The feminism bit comes when Callahan is assigned a partner (which never, ever works out… Continue reading The Enforcer Review
