Like Bill Paxton in the original Terminator, I believe he was the first one killed in the movie.

I'll eventually see this new Death Wish, if only to commemorate Die Hard, which came out 30 years ago this July. It's the last movie I really looked forward to going to.

I watched it last night. Another entertaining Bruce Willis movie. I try not to read too much into movies I watch.

Just came out on RedBox Tues. My boys loved it, I give it 3 stars.

Experienced star cast, decent acting but the story-line was too phony for a big budget film like that. Bruce Willis, the DEA agent from Breaking Bad, plus Vincent D'Onofrio and apparently there's only 2 homicide investigators in Chicago... Could have benefited from more Chicago like villains and more tie in with the original homicide investigation. Who would have thought Lethal Weapon had a more realistic investigative vibe.

Fun movie. Elisabeth Shue has aged very well.

Hmmm now I'm interested.

Her and Marisa Tomei must have been drinking the same water or something all these years.

The wife and I rented it the other day. Good movie, some homage to the originals. The Chicago detectives, I thought played the part of jaded, world-weary cops pretty well.
I'd give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

I tried to watch it last night. I made it halfway through and fell asleep. Not that is was boring, I was just tired. Will finish it up tonight. I think Bruce Willis was the perfect guy for the part. He needs to learn how to hold that Glock though.

I am in Cols Ohio visiting with my parents and dad wanted to watch a movie.

We scanned through the list and he chose this one.

He really enjoyed it, and I thought it was a fun movie. I kept thinking Vincent D'Onofrio was going to step up and take an active part in knocking off some of the crew but he stayed in the shadows. Good action, decent choice of weapons, and just enough blood and violence to quench your thirst.

For the life of me I could not think of who the actress was who played the wife. Then I read the credits. Elizabeth Shue has aged well and was always one of my favorites.

I thought the movie was a nice way to kill a Sunday evening with family before i have to drive back to Charlotte tomorrow for work tomorrow night.
