Silver Screen Riot Matt Oakes29 - Eli Roth’s remake of ‘Death Wish’ is rote, redundant, reductive work, poorly paced and overstuffed with lazy performances and bad dialogue. Worse still, it romanticizes gun violence and vigilantism, paying lip service to the ongoing debate on firearms in America while refusing to engage with the topic on any level deeper than a flesh wound. With no substantive value – and not enough entertainment value – it’s a blight on Roth’s already sketchy reputation.
