5.0 out of 5 stars The First Of The Killings Aug. 10 2013
By Miracle Max TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first installment of the Death Wish series is probably the most important, as it explains how and why Paul Kersey became the Vigilante. The film opens with the violent rape of his wife and daughter. His daughter, the only survivor is left in a psychologically induced coma. Meanwhile A land developer friend of his gives him a gun as a gift and sign of friendship for closing a deal on a architecture design for a new development on the west coast. At first Paul keeps taking the gun out and staring at it not sure what to do with it. But a deep feeling in his gut keeps haunting him until he knows at last what he must do. This is when We get to see Paul Kersy take his first life in an act of pure frustration against the violent criminals that roam the streets of his city.

We get to see the human side of Paul Kersey more deeply in this first death wish film, and the impact his first killing has on him. Upon his first killing Paul vomits as it sinks in what he has just done. His hands shake and he is in a cold sweat, his guts in a knot.

Paul soon realizes that the only way to stop the sick feeling from his first killing is to keep killing more violent criminals, and that is exactly what he does. After each killing Paul becomes more relaxed with his new life as a Vigilante and becomes more confident towards continuing the killings. One by one Paul Kersey takes out his gun and rids the world of the scum bags that hold his city in fear. But it is Paul who ends up being feared by the criminals of the streets.

They know he is out there, they know he is looking for them. Every crime they do could be their last as the Vigilante is coming for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adjusting to killing Feb. 22 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Movie is just excellent. It shows how a helpless common man slowly adjusts to killing. At first he is disturbed to the point of vomiting after he kills the first mugger, who killed his wife and raped his daughter; but gradually adjusts and becomes more and more comfortable with it. Revenge is after all a natural instinct. If you don't beleive me just try to harm a few bear cubs when the mother bear is around and you will find out. Now, I don't support killing & murder; however in today's world killing is in the hand of the beholder. Governments & the military, they kill with impunity...

The end is awesome as the police will let him off the hook if he leaves town. Highly recommended.

I was such a fan of Charles Bronson when I was a kid. It is just so great to get those oldies at such great bargain prices from amazon.ca.
Shipping was also as expected. Thanks

I wanted to see this movie for such a long time and it was as I rembered it. Bronson gives a superb perfomance. Like the title the first Death Wish was and still the best of the bunch.

4.0 out of 5 stars CONTROVERSY IS GOOD. April 25 2004
Format:DVD
I don't remember too many films from the 1970's the earned an entire OP/ED page in the N.Y. Times, but this urban classic did. Controversy proved to be good box office and Bronson became a superstar as Paul Kersey. DEATH WISH is a taunt thriller that sparked more than one water cooler discussion in 1974. Michael Winner worked this one into a poster child for street justice and inspired more than a few real life imitators (the ad campaign boasted: "Paul Kersey is going to kill 3 muggers tonight: One for his murdered wife, one for his raped daughter and one for you!"). What was more unfortunate is that DEATH WISH became a parody of itself with 4 awful sequels. Forgot the rest, cheer for Bronson here everytime he caps a bad guy.
