The movie has a very standard Hollywood plot. Bruce Willis is the usual action hero. However, he does not show emotion as the character should. It is still good to watch as there are not a not of good action movie either.

Without stupid one-liners and wisecracks it is easy to see that, of all the aging action movie stars (Willis, Stallone, Schwarzeneggar, etc.), Willis is the least capable actor. He was painful to watch in this. At least we get to see the still beautiful Elizabeth Shue for half the movie.

Interesting to me that reviewers prefer the ultra violent original to the remake. I guess it is just perspective. I didn't watch all of the original because I left the room to vomit during the graphic rape scene and never went back to see more of the movie. This movie is violent, but not horrific. It is a good story, typical under-acting by Willis who expects fans to pick up his subtle expressions and the changes in his voice.

Bruce was once an "A" list actor.
Now, maybe down around "C" list.
And this movie shows his current status is deserving.

Love some of his early works. Die Hard? Great move. Still a great movie.

Death Wish? Wish for death. Is less painful.

And Bruce, please come up with some more facial expressions than your renowned half smirk. Ranks right up there with Nicholas Cage's blank expression of stupidity.

Willis was ten years older than Bronson in the original 1974 revenge-oriented vigilante action film. Despite the differences in NYC vs Chicago, architect vs MD and modern technologies, we know the drill already when the protagonist are both named Paul Kersey, a dusting-off-old-hit by Willis, a bit over the hill for action films. Overall, this remake added nothing other than multiple scenes that legitimize the “take the law in your own hands” view … in this day and age?

I always like Bruce Willis movies, so you might say that I am a bit bias about this one but, There are several really good action scenes but the drama is a bit of a let down for me not because of the script, Bruce is not good with drama, he is an amazing actor in action but not in drama.

don't remember Willis being so small. In the scene where he repaired his back the back was too large. Funny to watch.

Glad I didn't have to pay.

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.
