Personally I think the remake is a completely different tone than the original Death Wish from 1974. I mean, the trailer uses ACDC rock music, so its definitely going to be less of a serious film compared to the original. Please share your thoughts about the trailer and the film if you see it in theaters when it comes out
I haven't watched it as I haven't watched "The Mechanic" and "The Magnificent 7" remakes. I just can't watch a remake of a Bronson movie. I love Bruce Willis but I just don't feel like watching a Death Wish remake. If there is one actor in cinema history who is unique, inimitable and unrepeatable, it is definitely Bronson.

I went out and actually watched it. If we consider it a stand-alone film, it's a fine action film: the action sequences are pretty good because it doesn't use much shaky-cam (the Mechanic films liberally used shaky-cam making them hard to watch at some points). But as a remake, it doesn't really do the original film justice. It's more similar to Death Wish 3 and 4.
