(IMDB) Why It Deserves A Blu-Ray release: Death Wish is one of the roles that forever solidified Charles Bronson as a Hollywood badass. The movie turned him into an icon in America and helped popularize the raw crime genre that saw a rise in the 1970s. It's a straight up revenge fantasy that tapped into the overall prevailing mood of the era it was created in. Even though critics had mixed feeling when it first debuted, audiences were drawn to it thanks to a pretty sympathetic plot. If your wife was murdered and your daughter assaulted, you would want some revenge, too!
