What are you crying about? Wasn't it you who said that Bronson wasn't much of a leading man?

hahaha, yes, but I'm a fan of Charles though. That comment doesn't pertain to me. I'm saying in the overall movie world, Charles didn't sell as a leading man for the most part, that doesn't mean some of us didn't like it.

Charley is great in everything I've seen him in. He has great screen presence.
He just happened to be in a few awful movies.

Recently saw this year old video (https://youtu.be/1UBia76eesA) from Mark Kermode regarding the history of this remake.

Resuscitating this thread to see if anyone is gonna see it. The critics seem to dislike it just a bit but this guy on IMDB seems to either be a genuine fan or shill for MGM.

Quote
It's 12.30am over here in Malaysia, and yesterday was the premiere of Eli Roth's "Death Wish Movie," starring the legendary Bruce Willis. Now, firstly, I have not seen the original, but as a big fan of Eli Roth's horror movies, I had to watch it and I have to say, it's very well executed by Master of Horror, Eli Roth. It's a violent revenge action movie. It's no ordinary direct-to-video movie or overrated Hollywood movie. Most importantly, it's a movie that finally stars Bruce Willis as the main man, bringing back the action in the old school way. It also stars great actors such as Vincent D'Onofrio and Elisabeth Shue. It's definitely awesome to see a Hollywood legend kicking ass, the old school way, on the big screen. It's all thanks to Eli Roth, and God bless him for bringing back Bruce Willis.

As a remake, it looks pretty terrible. They seem to have removed everything that made the original one interesting and made it a generic Bruce Willis film. I won't pay a dime to see it.

Remakes have very little to do with the flaws or qualities of the original movie.

I enjoyed the idea of the Joe Carnahan directing and Liam Neeson starring version of Death Wish but the Eli Roth and Bruce Willis combo doesn't seem to be worthwhile.
