Trailer thoughts: Death Wish 2017

 

Wow. That was two minutes and twenty seconds of second amendment justification. Nothing uncomfortable about that in this current climate.

If the police can’t solve your problems, why don’t you pick up a gun and solve them yourself? Forget the law and forge your own justice. Look how cool Bruce Willis makes it look! He’s shooting people to the soundtrack of Back in Black and making jokes to his therapist about how it makes him feel better. Guns apparently save the day.

Sometimes Hollywood is the problem, you can’t glorify this shit, make money off it and then be surprised when people imitate it. Also I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised that it’s directed by Eli Roth, who loves to make a hacky, violent movie when he can. Sorry Bruce, I’m not planting my flag for this one in November.
