"Death Wish" (1974, 90 mins.) In this explosive story of revenge and urban violence, Charles Bronson plays Paul Kersey, a bleeding-heart liberal who has a change of opinion after his wife and daughter are violently attacked by a gang of thugs in their apartment. His daughter is raped, and his wife is raped and murdered. Bronson then turns vigilante as he stalks the mean streets of New York on the prowl for muggers, hoodlums and the like. Death Wish is a violent, controversial film that is frank and original in its treatment of urban crime and the average citizen's helplessness in dealing with it. Herbie Hancock wrote the musical score. And watch for a young Jeff Goldblum in his film debut as one of the thugs. "Death Wish II" (1981, 88 mins.) Charles Bronson returns with a vengeance (quite literally) in this sequel to the popular crime thriller "Death Wish". Bronson reprises his role as vigilante Paul Kersey, whose family is once again victimized after moving to Los Angeles from New York. A gang of street punks, who later break into his home and brutally assault his maid and daughter, resulting in their deaths, mugs Kersey. So Kersey grabs his gun and takes the law into his own hands, carrying out a shocking plan of vigilante justice while police officials look on helplessly.
