Desperate time, calls for desperate measures. The revengeful Bruce Willis as Dr. Paul Kersey in the intense action-thriller, ‘Death Wish’.

The US is home to 125 million families. One in four families will become victims of a crime. What would you do if your family was next? Bruce Willis is Dr Paul Kersey, a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city's violence when it is rushed into his ER. His life comes to a jarring turn when his wife and college-age daughter are viciously attacked in their suburban home.

With the police overloaded with crimes, Paul must embark on his own mission for justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media's attention, the city wonders if this deadly avenger is a guardian angel or a grim reaper. Death Wish is directed by Eli Roth and is a remake of the 1974 Charles Bronson movie about a vigilante out for justice. The intense action-thriller is based on the novel by Brian Garfield, with the screenplay by Joe Carnahan. Death Wish stars Golden Globe Award-winner Bruce Willis, Academy Award-nominee Elisabeth Shue, Vincent Phillip D'Onofrio and Kimberly Elise.
