Death Wish (1974)

1974 Death Wish Movie Film Cinema Poster Art Advance Teaser Theatrical

Death Wish is the first film in the history of cinema with a civilian hero killing other civilians. It spawned four sequels and became one of the  most copied film ever.

Charles Bronson plays an architect who, for personal reasons, takes on the role of city vigilante. The film is violent; Bronson shoots more bullets than dialogue.

Director Michael Winner recalls: “Charlie asked me which film we should do next. I told him I had this script about a man who goes out and shoots muggers. Charlie said, ‘I’d like to do it.’ I said, ‘The movie?’ Charlie replied, ‘No, shoot muggers.'”
