What is wrong with the deadbeats in Hollywood they have to resurrect old movies like Death Wish, Jumanji, etc. and give them a new overpaid cast and then suck moviegoers. Have they no imagination than to repeat old movies and put a new spin on it? Sad..

I watched this twice to find what I had missed. No development of the main character. The dialogue was flat. When it was time for the creeps to die, I didn't care. A good reason to fully appreciate the Charles Bronson version.

It would be a better remake without Die Hard’s John McLean, those Spider-Man type of TV interviews and the usual Hollywood soap operas.

Right now you're probably asking yourself, "Why remake a movie that was just about perfect already?" Well, why would you, punk?

Well done. Enjoyed the actors, story line, and end result.

This is a good remake. I enjoyed Bruce W. paying a doctor. It's so true you see the same criminals in the ER and OR until they are killed or they change their life. The actors were all nice group and they did a great job.

We liked it a lot, similar movie to the Charles Bronson movie one which we saw again a few months ago. I must say this one was good but you cannot beat any of the movies Bronson did. this one came close but no silver ring.

Nope, definitely not a worthy remake of the original Charles Bronson movie. Bruce Willis, same facial gestures, same action-man dribble, same disappointment.
Entertaining? If you enjoy rubber-necking at vehicle collisions.

People rely on the police to keep them safe. That's the problem. The police only arrive after the crime has taken place. That's like... Trapping the fox as he's comin' out of the hen house. If a man really wants to protect what's his... He has to do it for himself.

Most of these are gang-related. Just asshole-on-asshole violence. Some banger posts some shit on social media and they retaliate with an AR-15. Last weekend, a guy shot up a party. One guy shoots 14 people, no one sees anything. They don't talk to the cops, that's why these stay open. Point is, your wife's case is different. … I mean, that's three burglars who panicked. I guarantee at least one of 'em is shittin' himself somewhere. He's got a friend who's gonna get picked up on something unrelated. He's gonna sell his buddy down the river for his own freedom. Okay? I've seen guys turn in their own mother.

-What if I offered some kind of reward?
We'll just get flooded with false leads. Me and my partner are gonna have to waste time tracking 'em down.
-What about a private investigator?
PI's good for cheating spouses, missing persons... But murder case, they'll just take your money. They can't get involved in a police investigation. It's tampering with evidence, they could lose their license.
-So there's nothing that I can do. Is that what you're saying?
You can have faith.
===
No posting on social media, and all that stuff you guys do.
-I uploaded that shxt hours ago. I'm getting hits like a motherfxcker.
===
It's a slippery slope. So now everyone's just gonna take the law into their own hands, kill somebody that they think is doing something wrong.
===
It's hard to escape the feeling that I failed. Failed to protect my wife. Failed to protect my daughter. Failed at the most important things a man does.

The gun shop TV spot:
I don't shoot to kill, I shoot to stay alive. Law-abiding criminals don't exist. When seconds count, cops are minutes away. Come on down to Jolly Roger's. We've got some badass deals on our F-1 firearms. Ooh, and right now, we have a special on our tactical furniture.
===
There must be a lot of paperwork, right?
-Oh. Don't even worry. We'll get you set up with your FOID application right here today. State Police send it pretty quick. And then you'll just have to take a gun safety class, but don't worry, no one ever fails. You can do that anytime within 30 days of the time period you're waiting for your city permit. And then it's just 72 hours, and you're cocked, locked, and ready to rock. Ooh, and we can set you up with a gun safe. If someone ever steals that gun, those bullets can be traced right back to you.

762 murders, more than 3,500 shootings … There's no hope, guys. The government ain't coming for ya.
===
You know? Should we be policing ourselves in our own neighborhoods... I have said we need a guy like Grim Reaper for years.
===
49-year-old father of three was killed while trying to commit vigilante justice. Police believe this was a copycat of the so-called "Chicago Grim Reaper." A guy who went out, tried to fight crime, and ended up a victim himself.
===
Don't you judge me!
-I'm not judging you! I'm worried about you! You... You can't do this. XXXX, you're not a cop.
Then somebody has to do it!
===
Well, the good news is I'm not a suspect anymore.
- The bad news is I'm not a suspect anymore.
===
Seems pretty straightforward. XXXX came back, 'cause he thought XXXX could ID him. And you defended your family like any man would.
