The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Dr. Paul Kersey is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of Chicago violence when it is rushed into his ER – until his wife and college-age daughter are viciously attacked in their suburban home. With the police overloaded with crimes, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts his family’s assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media’s attention, the city wonders if this deadly vigilante is a guardian angel or a grim reaper.
I wasn’t too keen on checking out a Death Wish remake and from this first trailer, it’s not doing much to change my mind. Tonally the comedic elements shown in the trailer just seem odd along with AC/DC’s Back in Black playing over the second half, it just didn’t work for me like they’re going for a dark comedic tone that doesn’t gel for me personally.
Death Wish stars Bruce Willis, Elizabeth Shue, Camila Morrone, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jack Kesy, Dean Norris and Mike Epps and is scheduled for cinematic release on the 22nd November 2017.
