The original Death Wish premise benefited by being released during the lawless NYC 70's - and in my opinion the film hasn't aged well as a serious piece of work or as a credible political statement. It's ridiculous!
That said, Charles Bronson was still in his prime back then and his silent focus was believable. Willis on the other hand is at his best when he's slightly over his head, apprehensively rising to the occasion.
I can't imagine him in this role.
Good point and thanks for the reply and thread.
But I never believed he was "Butch"... he is always Bruce Willis. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. And that was over 20 years ago.
