Death Wish (0/1 Hats)


Kelvin Says Hats On:

Just saw “Death Wish” – Judge, Juris, and Executioner Doctor. Conclusion: 4/10. In some ways, this is the perfect movie for our time. Its politics speak incredibly well to people’s inclinations towards authoritarianism and paranoia and how that manifests. While it is problematic to the max, it is a shame that the film didn’t just go full on social satire. It inadvertently boarders on it many times. I found it to be both somewhat entertaining and intellectually interesting despite what the film is trying to do. Really, it’s a close, but no cigar type of joint. Some of the headier aspects aside, the film plays as a relatively standard revenge flick. Bruce Willis is Bruce Willis and that’s all that is required of him. Along with Liam Neeson, there should be a baseline expectation of what’s to follow when you sit down to watch a movie of theirs. In this regard, it hits all the usual marks with some occasionally interesting artistic blots and doses of humor. If you don’t think about it too much, or really at all, it is fine as an action movie. In the end, I think that’s also all the movie is trying for. #CrappyBirthday #ShowNoKersey #ReaperWhatYouSew #HardKnox #VigilantUntilProvenGuilty #GlockOnWood #WatchTaker
