Edited On: 26/03/2020 09:35Film Recommendation = Death Wish
 
All this staying in milarky and you might as well treat yourself to a classic from 1974 (same year as Jack Charltons great Boro team) that is on ITV4 at 11.50, Michael Winners finest movie...Death Wish.

Charles Bronson had spent most of his 53 years playing cops, soldiers, tough guys and playing second fiddle in movies like "The Great Escape" before Winner selected him to play the uptown businessman who turns into a vigilante killer following the murder of his wife and rape of his daughter while he was at the office.

Whilst Death Wish is essentially a revenge movie it came under scrutiny for glorifying vigilantes. Bronsons character lurks around in dark seedy areas and sets himself up as a well dressed businessman who will be an obvious target.

Death Wish is without doubt Bronsons best 90 minutes. It contains some uncomfortable scenes as Bronsons wronged character despatches any knife wielding mugger who crosses his path.

The film hit a nerve at the time. Muggings,knife crime and armed robbery was a real problem in NYC in the 70s.
