Bruce Willis has played his share of heroes and cops during his illustrious career, and now he takes on the role of an average guy turned vigilante with director Eli Roth’s Death Wish. This modern day remake of the Charles Bronson classic has Dr. Paul Kersey (Willis) seeking his revenge on the criminals who viciously attacked his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and daughter (Camila Morrone).
Since he’s a surgeon, Kersey is obviously good with his hands and holding a gun or two shouldn’t be a big challenge. As seen from the just released second trailer, Kersey also doesn’t mind taking out bad guys with (pardon the pun) surgical precision. Roth is an accomplished, viscerally driven filmmaker who isn’t afraid of pushing boundaries, and it will be interesting to see how far he can push Death Wish.
