15 Surprising Facts About Death Wish

By roger cormier | mar 1, 2018.

Paramount Pictures

When Brian Garfield wrote the 1972 novel Death Wish , about a New York City accountant-turned-vigilante named Paul Benjamin, he had no idea that it would spawn one of Hollywood's longest-running film series, with five movies released over 20 years. The first film, 1974's Death Wish , was so controversial that Garfield openly wished it would not air on television after it allegedly inspired some real-life copycat killings.

While Charles Bronson will forever be linked to the lead role (who changed from Paul Benjamin to Paul Kersey for the film, and became an architect), Bruce Willis is getting ready to give the iconic character a go with Eli Roth's update of the film, which hits theaters this weekend. In the meantime, here are 15 things you might not know about Death Wish .


Author Brian Garfield was inspired to write Death Wish after he grew very angry when, in separate incidents, his wife's purse was stolen and his car was vandalized. “I knew the vandal had done us no real harm ... Yet my first response to the discovery of this mindless violence was swift and stark," Garfield later wrote . "My boundaries had been violated, my property trespassed upon. He had no right . ' I'll kill the son of a bitch .'" While Garfield's flash of anger eventually dissipated, the idea of writing a novel about a man who never got over crimes committed against his immediate family didn't fade away so easily.


The adapted screenplay by Wendell Mayes ( Anatomy of a Murder , The Poseidon Adventure ) was written with the idea that Sidney Lumet would be behind the camera and Jack Lemmon would be starring as Paul. Lumet supposedly wanted to shoot it in black and white. When Dino De Laurentiis came on as producer , Lumet dropped out. With Lumet out, Lemmon lost interest.


Henry Fonda declined the part because he said the script was "repulsive." George C. Scott said no because of all its violence .


While Charles Bronson was immediately interested in the role, his agent wasn't so sure. "It's the only time Paul Kohner, my agent, ever disagreed with me about a film," Bronson said in 1974. "Paul felt very strongly that it was a dangerous picture—that it might make people think it's right to take the law into their own hands. This is what the hero of the picture does when he wants a one-man vigilante squad to kill muggers, after three of them have murdered his wife and raped his daughter. I told Paul I thought the message was the same there that runs through a lot of my pictures: That violence is senseless because it only begets more violence."


Garfield didn't like the fact that as soon as Bronson appeared on screen, "you knew he was going to start blowing people away." Director Michael Winner dismissed the author's criticisms, calling him "an idiot."


Even though he liked the message, Bronson wasn't originally convinced that he would be the best actor for the job. "The way the part was written, it was about a meek little New York-born accountant," Bronson said . "I thought it was a much better picture for Dustin Hoffman." Eventually, it was Winner who convinced Bronson to take the role anyway. "He said we could change the part to a more active and virile architect, and we'd all make a potful of money."


When discussing his feature debut, Jeff Goldblum admitted , "I stick out like a sore thumb." Goldblum played one of the "Freaks" who killed Paul's wife and raped his daughter. Back in 1983, Goldblum  told New York Magazine that a job was a job. "Did it bother me it was such a brutal part? No. It was the first movie I'd gone up for, and I got it." Winner remembered Goldblum as being "loose and brilliant" in his audition.


Olympia Dukakis was uncredited, but paid, for playing one of the cops at the precinct. It wasn't a particularly positive experience for the future Oscar winner. "Yeah, they sent me over, and the director [Michael Winner] was, uh, not necessarily liked by the actors," Dukakis told The A.V. Club in 2015. "I mean, he made me turn around, and he wanted to see me, and … he treated me like a piece of meat during the audition. But it was, like, one day, so I could take the money and go home and say, 'F**k you and the horse you rode in on.'"


Posters with the title Sidewalk Vigilante were printed because De Laurentiis worried about having the word "death" in the title. "The fact that it had the word death made me a little uneasy, a little perplexed," the producer  admitted . "Then I realized it might bring in an additional audience—horror flick fans—so I left it the way it was." For his part, Winner thought Sidewalk Vigilante was a "ghastly" title.


"It was the first film score by Herbie Hancock, the brilliant jazz musician,"  Winner wrote in his memoir, Michael Winner: Winner Takes All: A Life of Sorts. "I chose him because Dino wanted a cheap band and at the time I was having an affair with one of the actresses in the movie who was very into jazz music. She said, 'Herbie Hancock is a new genius.' I listened to his record Head Hunters , thought it absolutely brilliant, and persuaded Dino to take him."

"The point of the novel Death Wish is that vigilantism is an attractive fantasy but it only makes things worse in reality," the author said in 2008. "By the end of the novel, the character (Paul) is gunning down unarmed teenagers because he doesn’t like their looks. The story is about an ordinary guy who descends into madness. Oddly enough Mayes’s script honored that thought, and the only significant change in it during shooting was the wordless ending, but that ending changed the story entirely." The ending had Bronson smirking at some Chicago hoodlums while cocking a finger gun.


Vincent Canby of The New York Times wrote that “it's a despicable movie, one that raises complex questions in order to offer bigoted, frivolous, oversimplified answers" and found it to be "a bird-brained movie to cheer the hearts of the far-right wing." Variety 's review opened by claiming Death Wish is "awkwardly hung" on the "vulgar exploitation hook" of "poisonous incitement to do-it-yourself law enforcement."


Prices were raised from $3.50 to $4 per ticket. At that point, only The Godfather (1972) and The Great Gatsby (1974) had been as expensive. Death Wish ultimately made $22 million at the box office.


When it came time to air the movie on network television, Washington D.C. delayed the start time from 9 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Chicago and San Francisco opted not to air it. But every other major CBS affiliate around the country aired an edited version of the film during prime time on November 10, 1976, despite Garfield's protests. "I think it is a dangerous film," he said. "And the proof is that several people have already committed vigilante crimes inspired by the film, and said so." Garfield said this despite potentially losing $50,000 if Death Wish didn't run.


Sylvester Stallone was set to direct and star in a Death Wish remake for MGM back in 2008 . When that project, uh, died, it opened the door for Eli Roth and Bruce Willis to step in.

this a death wish

Now streaming on:

Eli Roth's remake of "Death Wish," starring Bruce Willis as a surgeon tracking the criminals who murdered his wife and put his daughter in a coma, is either the film we need right now or the film we absolutely don't need. It depends on whether you think the movie's self-aware take on vigilante daydreams speak deep and eternal truths about manhood, or reheat macho white guy fantasies of urban badassery that were questionable when Charles Bronson first incarnated them back in 1974.

Bronson, at least, was a former coal miner with the body of a wrestler and the face of a 19th century Siberian peasant, and it was established that even though his character, New York architect Paul Kersey , had been a conscientious objector during the Korean War, he was a military veteran and terrific shot. This all ensured that when the hero outdrew or thrashed men half his age in the original film and its four increasingly ridiculous sequels, you believed that he might be capable of such awesomeness (well, maybe not so much in the later movies, when Bronson was pushing 70—but whatever, he was Bronson). Because Willis has done over 30 action-adventure films, we buy our "Death Wish" ticket predisposed to believe that Paul can bullseye bad guys in a moving car while rolling around on the pavement like John McClane, or prevent a man from grabbing a hidden gun by pinning his hand to a bar with a knife; but there's nothing to support Paul's transformation into a remorseless killing machine, except that the film wants and needs it. The cops investigating the case ( Dean Norris and Kimberly Elise ) believe that their suspect is a natural on the shooting range but has no experience in combat, and they're right. Paul is such a newbie that he injures himself with a firearm twice, but pretty soon he turns into Rambo anyway, because nobody bought a ticket see Gandhi.

This is not a reactionary's unsettling answer to urban decay that was undeniably happening everywhere, as the original "Death Wish" was. It's a weirdly and darkly nostalgic movie. It wants us to be living in the 1970s or '80s again, when the public had lost a great deal of faith in the effectiveness of the police, the National Guard, and other designated enforcers, and it really did seem as if American cities were falling into chaos. I was a kid then, and I remember what it was like. Many people preferred not to go out at night unless they absolutely had to, so prevalent was the expectation of being assaulted or mugged or worse. In 2018, most major cities, New York included, are experiencing their lowest violent crime rates since the late 1950s, which means that the way the characters talk about the city streets in this "Death Wish," and the way this film presents the very idea of the city, amounts a negative form of wish-fulfillment. Paul Kersey only makes dramatic sense in a hellhole, not a heckhole.

To that end, "Death Wish" moves the setting from New York to Chicago, an anomalous modern American metropolis with a major murder problem—albeit one driven by street gangs shooting at each other with weapons brought in from adjoining states that have more lenient gun laws than Illinois, not the " Grand Theft Auto "-style ensembles through swarming Roth's widescreen compositions like bands of cackling highwaymen. Gang-related deaths exist in this film's world, too, but "Death Wish" isn't terribly concerned with those, except inasmuch as they let the film show Paul performing surgery on bullet-riddled black gang members. These "Oh, the humanity!" moments are ultimately just a setup providing Paul with an unregistered Glock that he can ice bad guys with. Norris' character refers to gang-related murders as "asshole-on-asshole violence," i.e., violence that's typical and therefore isn't worth getting worked up over, right before he tells Paul that his wife's murder and his daughter's catatonia are "special," and therefore personally upsetting to him. You don't need to be a dog to hear that whistle.

Many of the bad guys here are white, but their creepy otherness codes them as something else. The primary audience for this movie would appear to be viewers of Fox News Channel or CBS crime shows, both of which depict the inner city as a drug-addled outdoor charnel house where unmarked white vans kidnap young girls into Arab sex rings, serial killers install art-directed torture-dungeons in their basements, every other block hosts a black or Latin drug cartel or an Islamic terrorist cell, and the "American carnage" spoken of in Trump's inauguration speech is a daily reality from sea to shining sea.

There's a lot of talent involved in this thing. As written by Joe Carnahan (and rewritten by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski , the minds behind " Ed Wood ," " The People vs. Larry Flynt " and the recent "The People vs. O.J. Simpson"), this "Death Wish" updates Paul's story for the age of social media, turning him into a YouTube-certified, meme-ready folk hero who's dubbed The Grim Reaper because he wears a hoodie that hides his face like a cassock. Elisabeth Shue has a very brief role as Paul's wife, who is murdered immediately (though both she and her daughter are spared rape this time, in a break from "Death Wish" tradition). Vincent D'Onofrio gives one of his typically overcooked yet thoughtful and surprising performances as Paul's troubled younger brother Frank, who lends Paul a shoulder to cry on when he isn't chastising him for making him feel worthless.

Willis isn't exactly chasing Oscars here, but he's a pro who knows how to calibrate a preposterous character and make him seem credible in the moment. He gives more to the movie than the movie gives to him, staying on the right side of caricature, underplaying scenes that seem calculated to pander. The movie is at its best when Paul is contemplating his celebrity while watching news reports and YouTube clips of his exploits and realizing (as many action heroes do, if they're being honest) that he was dead inside until killing gave him a reason to live.

A montage near the midpoint of "Death Wish" juxtaposes split-screened close-ups of Paul's hands stripping, cleaning and loading guns with closeups of Paul picking spent shells from gang members' bodies in trauma surgery—a resonant image that promises commentary on how men like Paul think they're ending the cycle of violence when they're really just perpetuating it. But the movie's not capable of sustaining arguments that delicate, so the notion dissipates as soon as it appears, like smoke after a firefight. Roth is known for staging gleefully ugly violence, and there's a bit of that here. But more of the mayhem has a Rube Goldberg quality, with one lucky accident causing another, and all of them building towards a memorable kiss-off moment accompanied by a sub-James Bondian groaner of a pun. (In a trailer moment, Paul traps a wounded bad guy under a car held aloft by a jack, announces that he won't kill the guy "...but Jack will," then pulls the jack out.)

The new "Death Wish" is a vigilante film that's also about vigilante film cliches, when it remembers to think about such things, which is only occasionally. Most of its attempts to subvert or freshen up familiar elements aren't well developed, and they're certainly never strong enough to counter the bloodlust and gun worship that's invariably going to power this kind of project. There are moments when it seems faintly ashamed of itself for existing, but then it doubles down on its "Death Wish"-ness, as if to say, "We really mean it, we swear. Don't read too much into the goofiness." It flirts with surreal slapstick—there's even a scene where a killer gets clonked on the noggin with a bowling ball—but never musters the nerve to become a spoof. 

Francois Truffaut memorably observed that there's no such thing as a truly antiwar film because war is so inherently cinematic that merely to depict onscreen it is to enshrine it. The same goes for critical or ambivalent films about gun violence and vigilantism. This "Death Wish" is larded with odd grace notes and moments of self-awareness (and sometimes self-regard), but in the end, it's mainly here for the bullets, the bodies, and the steely smirk on the hero's face as he dishes up murder and calls it justice.

Much of the dialogue concerns the necessity of a man protecting "his" women, but, as in the original Bronson films, this fictional world cannot abide too many women, because their presence in the story would complicate the posturing and feuding. They're absent presences, more often talked about (and sometimes wept over) than seen, and a pretext for heroes to do what they always wanted to do anyway: kill sneering, tattooed goons with bad teeth. The end product is a wish-fulfillment fantasy for suburban fathers who crank "Back in Black" while driving the kids to Chipotle after soccer practice. It's vigilante dad rock.

Death Wish

  • Dr. Paul Kersey is an experienced trauma surgeon, a man who has spent his life saving lives. After an attack on his family, Paul embarks on his own mission for justice.
  • Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city's violence as it's rushed into his ER--until his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and college-age daughter (Camila Morrone) are viciously attacked in their suburban home. The police are overloaded with crimes so Paul, burning for revenge, hunts for his family's assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media's attention, the city wonders if this deadly avenger is a guardian angel--or a grim reaper. Fury and fate collide in the intense action-thriller Death Wish. — MGM
  • As a spate of aggravated burglaries hits Chicago, Dr Paul Kersey discovers he has failed to protect his beloved ones when brutal masked robbers break into his house. Now, Kersey's family is a statistic. As a result, with the authorities unable to find the perpetrators, Paul soon loses faith in the ineffectual system. And as the once meek family man plucks up the courage to take the law into his own hands, Paul's semi-automatic, 4th generation Glock 17 pistol ensures that those who robbed him of his happiness will pay in blood. But isn't a doctor supposed to save lives? — Nick Riganas
  • (Note: This is a remake of the 1974 crime film of the same name.) The film opens in Chicago as two victims of a gunfight - a cop and a crook - are being taken to the hospital to be treated. Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is called in to tend to the cop, but he dies just as Paul enters the room. He then proceeds to go treat the other man, despite knowing the man killed a cop. Paul lives with his wife Lucy (Elisabeth Shue) and daughter Jordan (Camila Morrone). Jordan just got into her dream school, and her parents are proud. They later take Jordan to one of her soccer games when the father of another girl starts yelling at the ref for making bullshit calls. Paul tries to calm him down, but it only makes the man angry and he hurls insults at Paul. The Kerseys go out for lunch with Paul's older brother Frank (Vincent D'Onofrio). He asks Paul to loan him $2,000 to pay off a debt. Paul reluctantly agrees. As they leave, Frank tells the valet, Miguel (Luis Oliva), that Paul's "got the cash". Miguel goes to get the Kerseys' car, but he takes a picture of their address from their car. The family tries to go out for a birthday dinner but must cancel. The next evening, Paul is working while Lucy and Jordan are together. Lucy prepares to bake a cake, but moments later, she hears a noise. Jordan is upstairs looking for an iPad, but Lucy knows something isn't right. Three masked men have broken in, and they take the ladies hostage. The leader, Knox (Beau Knapp), orders Lucy to open up their safe, or they will harm Jordan. Lucy does so and they leave Jordan with Joe (Ronnie Gene Blevins), who uses rope to tie Jordan up but becomes lecherous and tries to rape her, but the third man, Fish (Jack Kesy), stops him because Knox ordered him not to screw around. Jordan grabs a knife and slashes Joe across the face as Lucy and Knox return. Lucy throws boiling hot water in Joe's face to give Jordan a chance to run, but then two gunshots are heard. Paul is alerted when Lucy and Jordan are brought to the hospital. After extensive surgery, he is told that Lucy's gunshot wounds were too severe and she is dead. Jordan is in a coma after suffering blunt force trauma. Paul later meets with Detectives Kevin Raines (Dean Norris) and Leonore Jackson (Kimberly Elise), who launch an investigation into Lucy's murder. Paul attends Lucy's funeral with her family. After the service, Paul rides with Lucy's father. He notices poachers in the area as they have shot a deer. Lucy's father grabs his rifle and shoots after the men, but they get away. He then shoots the deer in the head to ends its suffering. Paul sees a therapist as he is traumatized from his loss and has been having trouble sleeping. He goes out for a walk and notices two thugs harassing a woman. When Paul intervenes, the men go up to him and beat him up. Paul sees an ad on TV for a gun store, and he takes an interest in purchasing a weapon. He goes to the store and speaks to the spokes girl, Bethany (Kirby Bliss Blanton), who tells him what process he will have to go through in order to secure a gun. At the hospital, another gunshot victim is brought in, and his gun falls out. Paul kicks it under the bed and somehow manages to take it away undetected. He practices how to shoot before later that night when he goes out into the streets wearing a hoodie. He sees a carjacking take place as two thugs assault a man and take his girlfriend in their car. Paul shoots at the car and causes it to crash while also cutting his hand from the recoil. One of the carjackers is dead, and the other attempts to go after Paul before Paul shoots him dead. Raines and Jackson arrive on the scene hours later after speaking to a witness who recorded the incident. The video goes viral, and Paul is dubbed "The Grim Reaper" for becoming a vigilante. At work, Paul tends to a boy who was shot in the leg. The boy tells Paul that he was walking on a street that is known as the territory of a local drug dealer called the Ice Cream Man (Moe Jeudy Lamour). Paul finds the street name and then goes to find the Ice Cream Man. He introduces himself as his "last customer" before Paul unloads his gun into the Ice Cream Man. The reaction following this is mixed, as people aren't comfortable with a random man taking justice into his own hands, but others think it's fine that he's going after criminals. Yet another gunshot victim is brought in, and this time, it's Miguel, whom Paul recognizes from a tattoo he spotted on him when he was at the restaurant. Paul uses a defibrillator on Miguel, and the guy dies. Paul then takes Miguel's phone and unlocks it with his thumb and then finds the picture of his address on the phone. He also goes through his contacts and finds that all the stolen items from the safe are being sold at a pawn shop. Paul visits the pawn shop/bar and talks to the owner, Ponytail (Ian Matthews). Paul name-drops Miguel, leading Ponytail to get suspicious. Ponytail goes for his gun but Paul stabs him in the hand and forces him to take him to his belongings. Ponytail also secretly sends a message to someone else. He takes Paul to the back to find his stuff, but moments later, Fish shows up and attempts to shoot Paul, but he kills Ponytail instead. Paul and Fish exchange gunfire until he manages to get Fish in the leg. Fish tries to weasel his way out by saying that it was Joe who shot Lucy. He tries to go after Paul again, but a loose bowling ball falls from up high and hits Fish in the head, leading him to fall and shoot himself in the head. Paul goes to a garage where Joe works. He knocks him out by whacking him in the balls with a wrench, causing him to hit his head against the car he's working on. Paul then places Joe under the car, which is being propped up by a crowbar. Paul tortures Joe by cutting his leg and pouring brake fluid on it, causing it to painfully burn his leg. Joe admits that Knox was the mastermind behind the whole thing, but he isn't someone who is easily found. With all the information he needs, Paul yanks a chain that pulls the crowbar and causes the car to crush Joe's head messily. Jordan finally wakes up at the hospital. Paul is forced to tell her what happened to her mother. A news report is heard on a father of three who was shot dead after trying to follow Paul's lead and go after a thug in an alley. Paul receives a text message from Knox ordering him to meet him at a nightclub. Paul follows the order and is told to go to the bathroom. Paul thinks he is in a stall and shoots at it, but nobody is there. This lets Knox know who Paul is, and they shoot at each other, but Knox gets away. Frank finds Paul's now larger gun collection. He confronts Paul on the matter, but he says that somebody has to take justice into their own hands. After Jordan returns home, Knox returns to the house with two other goons. Jordan hides in the closet as Paul deals with them. He kills the two goons, but Knox follows him to the basement and shoots him in the shoulder. Before he can kill Paul, Knox hears Jordan yelling. With him distracted, Paul opens a compartment under a table to pull out a huge gun and pump Knox full of lead. Raines and Jackson arrive on the scene. Raines talks to Paul about what happened, questioning him about the guns. Although Paul's story is clearly suspicious, Raines appears to know what's up, but decides to make up a story that Knox returned because he thought Jordan would identify him, and Paul managed to kill him first. Later on, Paul drops Jordan off at college. On his way out, he notices a man who just committed a robbery. He calls to the man and pretends to shoot him with his finger.

Once a mild-mannered liberal, New York City architect Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) snaps when intruders break into his home, murdering his wife (Hope Lange) and violently raping his daughter. A business trip to Tucson, Ariz., lands him a gift from a client, a revolver he uses to patrol the streets when he returns home. Frustrated that the police cannot find the intruders, he become a vigilante, gunning down any criminal that crosses his path. The public finds this vigilantism heroic.

Critic Reviews for Death Wish

Audience reviews for death wish.

How would you respond to ever-present crime, especially when it becomes personal? That's the central question in this film, a controversial crime film centered on vigilantism in the early 1970s. This is a stylish 1970s message picture, not unlike Dirty Harry just a few years prior. Charles Bronson's middle-aged businessman, liberal, and prior conscientious objector character must answer that question. Do you remain "civilized" (a term used throughout) or do you stand and fight? Bronson's Paul Kersey takes a cue from a business acquaintance in Tucson, and starts looking for justice. Not content to look for the criminals who destroyed his family, he actively seeks out muggers and kills them. This film was controversial; is it really propaganda for vigilantism? I really don't see Bronson in that vein. He does seem satisfied although conflicted at first. Also, the home invasion/rape scene is not for the timid; it must have been shocking in 1974. I recommend this, although it is dated and I like Dirty Harry more. In the same vein, Tom Clancy's Without Remorse would make a great movie; I wonder why that hasn't been made? Look for Christopher Guest, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, and Jeff Goldblum. Also, Vincent Gardenia shines as Det. Frank Ochoa, probably the most believable character in the film.

this a death wish

I find it fascinating how this created controversy in both the USA and the UK for very different reasons. A certain scene of sexual violence was considered too extreme and endorsing (according to the BBFC). Whereas the film sparked controversy over in America for being propaganda for vigilantism. However, these don't stop Death Wish from being a powerful and interesting story about how one man's perception on the world changes and how he reacts to it. Charles Bronson does give an impressive performance in which you can understand and sympathise with his character of Paul Kersey. It may not look the most appealing of films, but it's strong, intense and you (sometimes) agree with how Kersey handles certain situations.

A very weak script standing on very weak performances. Death Wish starts out like your typical revenge flick with the protagonist's (Charles Bronson) family being slaughtered and he soon follows on a rampage to track down the killers and avenge his family. This is not the case with Death Wish. Charles Bronson receives a pistol and murders mugger after mugger. He just happens to be robbed several times within such a short period of time. He doesn't track down his wife's killer or anything logical like that, but instead takes it out on every other person. It's just not a realistic film, even in the slightest sense and the acting is sub-par. When Charles Bronson was told his wife had died, he barely reacted. Death Wish is an easily forgettable attempt at "revenge," especially when so many have done it much bigger and much better.

Paul Kersey: Nothing to do but cut and run, huh? What else? What about the old American social custom of self-defense? If the police don't defend us, maybe we ought to do it ourselves.  "Vigilante, city style -- Judge, Jury, and Executioner" What a beautiful portrait of New York Death Wish paints. Basically it is telling the viewer that if you walk on the street you will get mugged. One man is mugged like six times in the movie. A little excessive, but it makes its point; even if it is a stupid one. Carry a gun and shoot the muggers, vigilantism 101 I guess. The movie has a very exploitative and brutal nature. The makers also show that cops mean nothing. They won't find criminals, so go out and get a gun and kill anyone that fucks with you. Why, what a beautiful world that would be. Yeah, so by now you can see that I agree with absolutely nothing this movie is saying; from the gun rights issue to the vigilante justice. I may not agree with it, but I actually did like the movie to a certain extent. An architects wife is murdered and his daughter is raped by muggers. The once peaceful man takes it upon himself to kill any mugger he comes across. New York is taken by storm, as muggings go down and the cops must decide if this vigilante is worth arresting anyway. He is basically doing their job for them, which leaves them with much more time to do the things cops really like too do, like eat donuts.  The character lives by the motto of "Fight fire with fire." He is fighting violence by being just as violent. Whatever your stance on that is will tell you how much you will like the movie. In my case though, I didn't think I would like it at all because of this, but I actually enjoyed Charles Bronson as architect turned vigilante.  The movie clearly sets up its sequel when the character leaves New York and moves to the less crime filled Chicago. I don't see myself watching all the sequels to this movie, as this was nothing more than average. But from Chicago, it would only make sense to move on to Detroit and then maybe Boston. You might as well clean up every criminal heavy city.

The charles bronson death wish movies, ranked worst to best.

Charles Brosnan's most famous franchise is Death Wish, and here's the controversial vigilante action movie series ranked from worst to best.

Here's are the Charles Bronson Death Wish movies ranked from worst to best. Charles Bronson's unique look and stoic demeanor saw him make an impression in supporting roles in movies like  The Magnificent Seven or The Great Escape . For much of his career, Bronson was a bigger star in Europe than the U.S., especially thanks to his iconic turn in Sergio Leone's Once Upon A Time In The West -  one of Tarantino's favorite westerns . Bronson also collaborated frequently with director Michael Winner, who later cast him in 1974 thriller Death Wish .

Death Wish  followed architect Paul Kersey, who becomes a vigilante stalking the streets of New York following an attack on his wife and daughter. Like the Dirty Harry movies before it, Death Wish was highly controversial for seemingly condoning the idea of people taking the law into their own hands. Regardless of tepid reviews, Death Wish became a surprise success and established Bronson as a star in America in his early 50s, though the movie also typecast him permanently in similar roles.

Related: The Magnificent Seven Ride Ended The Original Series On A Dark Note

Bronson - who nearly replaced Clint Eastwood in the Dollars series -  returned as Kersey four times in the next 20 years, though the laws of diminishing returns apply to most of them. Here are Charles Bronson's Death Wish movies, ranked.

5. Death Wish II (1982)

Death Wish II moved the story to L.A., where Kersey's maid and daughter are brutally assaulted and killed by a gang, and the architect picks up his gun to hunt them down. Death Wish II is basically the movie the original was accused of being; an ugly, dispiriting action film that features unnecessarily graphic assault scenes and has no real heart or message. Michael Winner frames the action with blunt efficiency and Bronson has some great lines, but Death Wish II is easily the worst of the franchise.

4. Death Wish 4: The Crackdown (1987)

Death Wish 4  is the first entry not directed by Winner and is probably the most generic of the bunch. Following the death of his girlfriend's daughter from an overdose, Kersey sets up A Fistful Of Dollars trilogy-style revenge plot where he turns two feuding gangs against each other. The Crackdown has some interesting ideas, but Bronson sleepwalks through it and even the action scenes are forgettable.

3. Death Wish V: The Face Of Death (1994)

Not only was Death Wish V: The Face Of Death Charles Bronson's final outing as Kersey, it was his last theatrical release too. Death Wish V moves back to New York, where Kersey picks up his bad habits again when a mobster murders his girlfriend. The fifth movie puts more focus on its campy villains than Kersey and carries a sillier tone. Bronson has less physical action -in one scene, he kills a mobster with a poisoned pastry - but he seems to be having more fun, and combined with a likable supporting cast, the sequel is better than it probably should be.

2. Death Wish (1974)

Based on the anti-vigilante novel of the same name, Death Wish - whose 2018 remake received brutal reviews - became one of the most controversial thrillers of the decade. The film's depiction of violence may feel somewhat tame by modern standards, but it was truly shocking for the time, as was the concept of a normal civilian taking the law into their own hands. Death Wish is more ambivalent about Kersey's actions than critics at the time stated, and Bronson's has rarely been more effective in a leading role.

1. Death Wish 3 (1985)

Charles Bronson's Death Wish series became sort of a cartoon with Death Wish 3 , where Kersey returns to New York to avenge a friend's murder. Death Wish 3 suffers from a bad script, bizarre editing and an inconsistent tone - but it's also wildly entertaining as a result of those flaws. From Gavan O'Herlihy's - who appeared in unofficial Bond Never Say Never Again - unforgettable villain Fraker, his henchman The Giggler to a climactic scene that essentially turned Bronson into Rambo, the third entry is the most purely enjoyable of the Death Wish series despite some very sloppy filmmaking.

Cody Dorman, who inspired a nation over his bond with a horse, dies

Cody Dorman, whose relationship with a horse who was named after him became an inspiration to the country, died while flying from Los Angeles to Kentucky the day after Cody’s Wish won his second Breeders’ Cup race. He was 17.

“We are heartbroken to share the news that our beloved Cody suffered a medical event on our trip home to Kentucky [Sunday] and he has passed away,” Kelly and Leslie Dorman, Cody’s parents, said in a statement. “On Saturday, Cody watched his best friend, Cody’s Wish, display his usual perseverance and toughness in winning a second Breeders’ Cup.

“Those are the same characteristics Cody has showed time and again for the 18 years we were blessed to have him. We have been completely amazed to experience the impact Cody has had on so many people, through the journey that this wondrous racehorse has taken us all on.”

Cody and his family were celebrating Cody’s 18th birthday a month early when they came to Santa Anita Park to see his namesake run in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile. The horse, who was running his last race, won by a nose and also had to endure a five-minute inquiry after there was bumping between him and National Treasure down the stretch. Cody was waiting down in the winner’s circle as he did has on several other occasions.

Cody was born with Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome , a genetic disorder that can leave a person without the ability to walk or communicate. He was not expected to live past the age of 2.

Why Cody’s Wish’s last Breeders’ Cup race is washed in tears and hope

The bond between man and animal is never so evident as between Cody’s Wish and Cody Dorman. Now the horse runs his final race in the Breeders’ Cup.

Oct. 31, 2023

It was in October 2018 when Cody attended a Make-a-Wish event, sponsored by Keeneland, at Gainsborough Farm in Versailles, Ky. There was concern because Cody was in a wheelchair and Danny Mulvihill, the farm manager, was unsure how a young horse would react to that unfamiliar piece of equipment. So, he chose an unnamed colt who had not yet been weaned from his mother, Dance Card, to meet Cody.

“The foal just came out and took a look at the wheelchair and Cody, and took a second look and inched closer and never gave us a cause for concern,” Mulvihill said. “And he just kept inching closer until his nose was right there. He was nuzzling Cody’s hand and then his head went into Cody’s lap.”

The next year, the colt was named Cody’s Wish at the suggestion of Mary Bourne, the office manager at Gainsborough, who had stayed in touch with the Dorman family.

Two years later, Cody was having problems at home and his parents thought a visit to the farm and to see the horse he had seemingly bonded with would help Cody. A visit was set up.

Again, there was concern because Cody’s Wish was now full sized, fit and in training. But, things worked out perfectly.

“[The trainer’s] exact words to me when he came out is, ‘That horse remembered who he was,’” said Mulvihill. “Once again, he pulled him, pulled him, pulled him forward and he was right there in front of Cody again and nuzzling his hand.”

That scene played out several times as Cody went to the horse’s races at Churchill Downs, Keeneland, Saratoga and on Saturday, at Santa Anita.

“With Cody’s diagnosis at birth, we always knew this day would come, but we were determined to help Cody live his best life for however long we had him,” his parents said. “Anyone who has seen him at the racetrack, especially around Cody’s Wish, understands that in many ways he taught us all how to live, always keeping a positive attitude and being more concerned about those around him than himself.”

Cody Dorman, namesake of winning horse Cody’s Wish, has died

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Cody Dorman has died.

He was 17 years old.

In November 2022, WKYT began following the incredible story of the Madison County teenager and his very special bond with a racehorse, Cody’s Wish.

The horse was named for Cody, who had a rare genetic disorder and was nonverbal.

Cody and the horse first met several years ago after Make-A-Wish Day at Keeneland. Cody and his family were invited to Godolphin’s Gainsborough Farm in Versailles to meet a beautiful brown colt.

“Cody’s story really illustrates what a wish does and the power of a wish,” said Faith Hacker with Make a Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Nevada.

The two developed a special bond, so special that the farm later named the horse Cody’s Wish in honor of Cody, and that bond grew.

”And then two years later, when the horse should’ve been off training, he was a little bit behind, like Cody, and he was still there. He pushed his way. He wanted to see Cody. It was right after that second meeting that they suggested naming the horse Cody’s Wish,” Hacker said.

Cody’s family says he passed away on the way home to Kentucky over the weekend after watching his best friend, Cody’s Wish, win a second Breeder’s Cup at the Santa Anita track in California.

Cody’s family released this statement Monday morning:

We are heartbroken to share the news that our beloved Cody suffered a medical event on our trip home to Kentucky yesterday and he has passed away. On Saturday, Cody watched his best friend, Cody’s Wish, display his usual perseverance and toughness in winning a second Breeders’ Cup. Those are the same characteristics Cody has showed time and again for the 18 years we were blessed to have him. We have been completely amazed to experience the impact Cody has had on so many people, through the journey that this wondrous racehorse has taken us all on. From Churchill Downs, to Keeneland, to Saratoga to Santa Anita this weekend, we could not move 20 feet without someone stopping to tell us just that.

With Cody’s diagnosis at birth, we always knew this day would come, but we were determined to help Cody live his best life for however long we had him. Anyone who has seen him at the racetrack, especially around Cody’s Wish, understands that in many ways he taught us all how to live, always keeping a positive attitude and being more concerned about those around him than himself.

As people of faith, we are comforted in the knowledge that Cody has gone home. We pray that he watch over all of us, especially Kylie the best little sister in the world. We are sincerely grateful for all those who have shared this journey with Cody and our family. The joy that his interactions with Cody’s Wish have brought him the last five years is indescribable. We will rely on those memories to help us through an unimaginably difficult time.

Iowa caretaker gets deferred judgment after elderly patient with dementia froze to death

this a death wish

A caretaker has received a deferred judgment for her role in the death of a 77-year-old with dementia who froze to death outside an assisted living facility. Certified nursing assistant Catherine Forkpa, 32, was sentenced Tuesday to charge of defendant abuse in the death of 77-year-old Lynne Stewart.

Forkpa pled guilty to the charge in October, three months after her superiors at Bondurant’s Courtyard Estates at Hawthorne Crossing gave sworn testimony — now sealed from public view — indicating they failed to respond to several hours’ worth of phone alerts about door alarms sounding inside the facility.

She was initially charged with second-degree murder, which that carries a penalty of up to 50 years in prison.

As part of the deferred judgment, Forkpa will be on probation the next two years. She faced up to two years in prison and fines ranging from $855 to $8,540.

She will not be allowed to work for assisted living or dependent adult facilities during that time. The judge decided it was not within the court’s legal authority to place a no contact order barring Forkpa from being employed in that sector, but said either the Department of Inspections and Appeals or the Department of Health and Human Services will take steps they deem necessary and inform the public or potential employers of the crime.

Forkpa will pay an $855 civil penalty, submit a DNA sample and have a victim offender dialogue with Stewart's family. The judge left restitution undecided and gave the state 30 days to file a request.

What happened that night at Courtyard Estates

Stewart, a resident with dementia, left her room and, hours later, wandered outside in sub-zero temperatures. She was found outdoors the next morning and was declared dead a short time later.

State inspectors’ reports indicate Stewart walked out of her room at Courtyard Estates at about 4:32 p.m., triggering a series of alarms at the facility. At about 9:40 p.m., an alarm on an exit door in the facility was triggered, indicating someone may have left the building. According to police, surveillance video showed that in the hours that followed, Forkpa walked around the facility for hours without checking on Stewart or resetting the alarms.

Shortly after 6 a.m. on Jan. 22, workers found Stewart outside, on the ground, with parts of her body covered in ice. Forkpa, who had worked at Courtyard Estates for seven months as a certified nursing assistant, was fired. Four other employees were given written warnings for their failure to respond to door alarms, according to state records.

'I just wish I checked': CNA regrets not finding dementia patient outside

In her sentencing hearing, Forkpa expressed regret and remorse for the victim's family, her voice breaking as she gave her statement.

"That night I wish I went down to check," she said with tears streaming down her face. "...I didn't know anybody was outside that night. I just wish I would've have checked to know that everybody was asleep that night."

"My sympathy and apologies to the friends and family, nobody should lose their life in that situation. And secondly, I promise you, if I go on probation, I'll try to do my best," Forkpa said.

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty Data Shard Reveals Death Of A Major Character From The Witcher

Posted: November 5, 2023 | Last updated: November 5, 2023

  • Cyberpunk 2077 's DLC, Phantom Liberty , includes a touching Easter Egg reference to a character from CD Projekt RED's beloved franchise, The Witcher .
  • The hidden Datashard in the DLC confirms one character's death and reveals their final wish to have their ashes scattered on the moon.
  • The presence of a small porcelain urn near the datashard suggests that someone intends to fulfill the character's last wish.

Cyberpunk 2077 's DLC, Phantom Liberty , is an essential add-on for any fan of the base game. While the unpredictable spy-thriller story is among the best to be developed by CD Projekt RED, Phantom Liberty pays homage to a number of CD Projekt RED's previous games and most popular franchises - none more so than their critically and commercially revered series based on Andrzej Sapkowski's fantasy series of book, The Witcher series. One particularly well-hidden reference, made in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty , to a notable character from The Witcher franchise will undeniably be very bittersweet for long-time The Witcher fans.

[Warning: The following article contains spoilers for Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty]

As with many of CD Projekt RED's past games, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty has concealed within its fantastic and deeply immersive world a number of incredible Easter eggs , hidden details, and subtle pop-culture references. While a number of these Easter eggs are specific references to movies, TV shows, and books that have little or nothing to do with CD Projekt RED, many of the best-hidden details in Night City and Dogtown are subtle nods to their catalog of past projects - most notably The Witcher . While the developers managed to sneak in the game's iconic theme, as well as the protagonist's sword, the most touching tribute is far more somber.

A Relic From A Bygone Era

Who is yennefer.

Originating in The Witcher series of books, Yennefer was a sorceress from the city of Aedirn. The soul mate of the franchise's protagonist, Geralt of Rivia, Yennefer is an important figure throughout the mainline games; however, she does not appear in the first game and only features in flashbacks until The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt . Yennefer has become a fan-favorite character and has occupied a place as one of the most significant female figures in the games, books, and TV show . When last seen in a video game, Yennefer is alive and well, but attentive players of Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty have discovered a reference to her ultimate fate .

Related: "Electrifying, Emotional, And Full Of Twists" - Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty Review

Though the Phantom Liberty Easter Egg reference to Yennefer is brief and easy to miss, fans of CD Projekt RED's biggest franchise, The Witcher , will be deeply moved by the bittersweet contents of a very well-hidden Datashard that can be found in Cyberpunk 2077 's DLC, Phantom Liberty . Only locatable in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty during the final main job in Song So Mi's (Songbird) path, "The Killing Moon," this touching Easter Egg has two parts.

A Deeply Moving Last Wish

Yennefer is dead.

Though it is no surprise that Yennefer, a character born in 1173, is dead by the time Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty takes place, it is, nevertheless, somewhat upsetting to think that such a beloved and vivacious figure in The Witcher will eventually meet her end. The apparent confirmation of her death can be found in a Datashard titled "The Last Wish" - undoubtedly a clever reference to the title of Andrzej Sapkowski's third short story collection in The Witcher series, The Last Wish . "The Last Wish" Datashard can be found during "The Killing Moon" main job if the player is willing to explore hostile areas that are off the beaten path.

Andrzej Sapkowski has written six novels and 15 short stories about The Witcher .

The Datashard is located far from the mission's objectives, so locating it can be difficult. V will have reached their destination when they go down a set of stairs and enter into a small room crowded with cardboard boxes. Among these boxes can be found the Datashard "Last Wish." Though it is not directly addressed to anyone, the contents of the note are quite obviously a reference to the conclusion of Yennefer's personal quest, also titled "The Last Wish," in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt , during which she and Geralt have the option to profess their love for one another - as poignantly referenced in the Datashard's first line of text.

After this affectionate reference, the datashard takes a sad turn as it is revealed that Yennefer's time has come, and she has passed away. The note concealed within the datashard concludes with her final wish, for her ashes to be scattered from the highest peak on the moon - the romantic intention of this last request being that whenever Geralt looks up at the stars he will think of her. The datashard's text concludes with the simple signature - Y. Though nothing in the datashard overtly names her or Geralt, fans of The Witcher will immediately recognize the subtext and will appreciate the authorship and intended recipient of this enormously emotive note.

Granting Yennefer's Final Wish

An urn among the luggage.

Though no explanation is afforded as to how a several hundred-year-old love note has ended up on a Datashard, let alone how the contents of the note have made it onto the spaceport, the Yennefer-related Easter Eggs do not stop there. There is one more hidden detail that speaks to someone's intention of carrying out this final wish. Close by the Datashard, in the same room, V can clearly see a small porcelain urn decorated with flowers and gilt accents that may or may not contain the cremated remains of Yennefer. Though stored in a cardboard box in between various books, the ornate white pot is quite unambiguously an urn.

The preservation of Yennefer's ashes within this urn, if, in fact, it does contain her remains, engenders numerous questions regarding whose luggage this is, with the notion that it could be Geralt's . If so, he would be over 600 years old, an unlikely feat even for such an incredibly powerful man; however, Saburo Arasaka was 158 at the time of his murder, so perhaps Geralt could still be alive and well in 2077. Irrespective of this detail, CD Projekt RED's inclusion of an Easter Egg paying homage to one of the most important characters from The Witcher series is deeply moving, even if this Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty Datashard leaves us a little sad.

Pressure grows for Gaza ceasefire as Israel-Hamas conflict enters fifth week

The US and its Arab allies appeared divided after meeting between regional foreign ministers and secretary of state Antony Blinken

  • Follow live for latest in the Israel-Hamas war

The United States and its Arab allies appeared divided over calls for a ceasefire in Israel’s military offensive against Hamas, as the US pushed for a more temporary pause in fighting amid growing global anger over the rising death toll among Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip.

On Saturday, several Middle East foreign ministers urged the US to persuade Israel to agree to a ceasefire in a meeting with the secretary of state, Antony Blinken. The top US diplomat, however, dismissed the idea, saying such a halt would only benefit Hamas, allowing the militant organisation to regroup and attack again.

The diplomatic wrangling came as the conflict entered its fifth week, with reports that more than 30 people were killed in a strike on a refugee camp in central Gaza .

Palestinian news agency Wafa was the first to report on the bombing at Gaza’s Maghazi refugee camp late on Saturday. Gaza’s Hamas-controlled health ministry said Israel had attacked the camp, adding that most of the dead were women and children.

An Israeli military spokesperson said it was looking into whether the Israel Defence Forces had been operating in the area at the time of the bombing.

Earlier on Saturday, Palestinians reported a deadly Israeli strike on a UN-run school in northern Gaza serving as a shelter.

Witnesses said the strike hit the al-Fakhoura school in Jabalia, where thousands of evacuees were living. At least 15 people died and dozens more were wounded, said a Gaza health ministry official, Mohammad Abu Selmeyah.

Israel vowed to destroy Hamas after the 7 October attack on communities near the border with Gaza which killed more than 1,400 people, mainly civilians. More than 240 Israeli and foreign hostages were also abducted during the attack.

The health ministry in Gaza says more than 9,480 people in Gaza, mostly women and children, have been killed in Israeli strikes and the intensifying ground campaign.

The growing number of civilian deaths has intensified international calls for a ceasefire. The US has sought to persuade the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to accept localised pauses in fighting, but after meeting with Blinken on Friday the Israeli leader said there could be no “temporary truce” unless Hamas released the hostages it holds in Gaza.

On Saturday, Hamas officials said that more than 60 of the hostages being held in Gaza were missing after Israeli airstrikes. Late last month, Hamas said an estimated 50 captives held by the group were killed in strikes on Gaza.

Israel’s defence minister, Yoav Gallant, said troops were fighting “hard” in Gaza, while the Israeli military’s chief of staff, Lt Gen Herzi Halevi, visited troops inside Gaza after they completed an encirclement of Gaza City.

The Israeli military describes Gaza City as “the centre of the Hamas terror organisation”, but the US special envoy for aid assistance, David Satterfield, said between 350,000 and 400,000 civilians remained in the city and adjacent areas.

The ongoing fighting has provoked political opposition from key regional powers, including Turkey, which on Saturday recalled its ambassador from Israel, hours before Blinken was set to arrive in Ankara for meetings with local officials.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan told reporters he held Netanyahu personally responsible for the growing civilian death toll in Gaza. Israeli foreign ministry spokesperson Lior Haiat said the move was “another step by the Turkish president that sides with the Hamas terrorist organisation”.

On Saturday, protests were held outside Netanyahu’s residence. Waving blue and white Israeli flags and chanting “Jail now!”, a crowd in the hundreds pushed through police barriers around the prime minister’s home in Jerusalem and were held back by police.

The protest, which coincided with a poll showing more than three-quarters of Israelis believe Netanyahu should resign, underlined the growing public fury at their political and security leaders.

Thousands also demonstrated in Tel Aviv, waving flags and holding photographs of some of the captives in Gaza and posters with slogans like “Release the hostages now at all costs” while crowds chanted “bring them home now”.

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators also staged protests on Saturday in cities around the world, including London, Berlin, Paris, Istanbul and Washington, to demand a ceasefire.
