Death Wish

Objectionable vigilante trash from the objectionable Winner, with the stony Bronson taking the law into his own vengeful hands when his wife is killed and his daughter turned into a traumatic vegetable after an attack by muggers. The sense of location is strong, emphasising a hostile, nightmarish terrain; but Winner's recourse to caricature when dealing with police and thugs, and his virtually overt sympathies with the confused, violent Bronson, make for uncritical, simplistic viewing.
