Original vigilante thriller that spawned a slew of sequels and "copycats" still packs a potent punch. Charles Bronson takes the law into his own fists when his wife is killed and his daughter raped by local toughs. With Hope Lange, Vincent Gardenia. San Francisco has Dirty Harry, New York has Paul Kersey. Death Wish explores the psychological aspects of when a CO's (Conscientious Objector's) family is brutalized by muggers in an increasingly violent city. The police fail to apprehend the muggers who attacked Paul Kersey's family, so he decides to deal with the issue himself. We see Kersey acclimate to the violence after being sick to his stomach the first time he confronts a mugger. He gradually becomes a hardened vigilante. The police officially want him off the streets, but crime statistics are way down, so unofficially they do not want to arrest him. We see a young, creepy Jeff Goldblum at the first of the movie and he does a good job making me dislike him. Not bad at all for 1974. Still entertaining now.
