First off i pre-ordered this from dvd world usa and have received my copy early.

This US disc is region free so uk fans buy with confidence.

The film is presented in 1.78.1 according to imdb the films original aspect ratio is 1.85.1 so don't know why that wasn't used for this blu ray.

PQ is very good vibrant colours and a clear picture that looks like it has been re-mastered.
I have death wish on dvd and the blu-ray was worth the upgrade.

SQ is DTS-HD MASTER AUDIO 2.0.

Special features are poor just a theatrical trailer.

If you are a fan of this movie and own the sequels on blu-ray then this disc is worth importing.

Due to this films rubbish sequels(each one worse than the last)critics seem to tarnish it with the same brush. If your new to this film ignore the critics and go buy. Its the gripping and sometimes disturbing story of Paul Kersey who turns vigilante after his wife is killed and his daughter raped by low life scum who break into his house. This is one of the first films(if not the first)of its kind and also one of the most underated movies of the seventies. Even though it does seem a little dated now. Charles Bronson is on top form as Kersey. Also to my knowledge this is the first time the film is available in its uncut version on either dvd or video.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Despite switching the emphasis around entirely from the novel's argument that vigilantes = bad to vigilantes = f---ing great, the first Death Wish is a surprisingly pretty decent film, if only because Michael Winner still had enough ability to hire a crew and cast who knew what they were doing to make him look good. It's a shame that at a fairly late date new producer Dino De Laurentiis took over the project and changed his mind about the direction the film would take, though: it was written originally for Sidney Lumet and Jack Lemmon and was more like a middle class version of Taxi Driver, the anti-hero's vigilantism descending into indiscriminate killing of anyone he doesn't like the look of that's just as bad as the lowlives he stalks. Unfortunately Winner happened to be reading the novel and described the plot to Bronson on the way back from the set of The Stone Killer.

"I'd like to do that," said Bronson.
"What, make a movie of the book?"
"No, shoot muggers."

The rest is history. To be fair, Bronson makes a decent stab at playing a bleeding heart liberal architect (the character hadn't yet undergone his metamorphosis into a gun-toting Superman), but whereas with Lemmon there would have been some surprise when his frustrated everyman killed, here it's more of a surprise that it takes Bronson so long to get down to it (the movie is nearly half over before his killing spree begins). And whereas Lumet would have drawn out the moral ambiguities, Winner just takes the story at face value and delivers what ends up as an efficient violent urban wish-fulfilment fantasy.

I'm big fan of the Charles bronson films especially Death wish
really Good Action thriller brilliantly Directed by Michael winner who passed away 2 years ago now

the first dvd release of Death wish was barebones anyway, no extras
well Paramount finally Decide to release the film on blu-ray, but again no new special features which i think is insulting
to Death wish fans like myself
so for Paramount to advertise this blu-ray as 40th Anniversary edition is Disgusting & insulting
how can it be called 40th Anniversary edition when there's no new extras anyway, makes no sense
at least Paramount could've produced a new Documentary about Charles bronson's life
or about his films including Deathwish
which would have interviews with other Actors or filmmakers that have been influenced by Charles bronson or Michael winner
they could've added this Doco to this blu-ray version, i've seen similiar Documentaries about Charles bronson on youtube
so these retrospect Doco's do exist
but no of course Paramount studios are not going to bother with it

i do have some positive comments to say about the picture quality
the new HD transfer does look Good nice, clean transfer, better than the old dvd release from 10 years ago
the sound quality is average, only a 5.1 Master audio mix which is Good but not excellent
Disgusting effort by paramount for sure should not be advertised as 40th Anniversary edition
2 stars i give this insulting blu-ray release mainly cause no new extras, nothing really.
it's only worth 1 pound

Format: DVD
Death Wish. What a film. This film rode the tide of admiration for vigilante action against the ones that seem to avoid justice or just plain slip through the cracks. When Paul Kersey's (Bronson) wife and daughter are attacked in their own home, beaten and sexual assaulted by a gang of low life scum, the police and the courts offer no justice. Later after learning to shoot and ditching his liberal values Kersey takes to the streets to dispense some real justice!
Now this sure does raise some interesting moral questions, but lets face it, we all back Bronson/Kersey, and maybe even secretly admire his actions, at least to some extent. We know that what he does is wrong, but the 'thrill' of revenge and harsh punishment dealt out to criminals sure carries a hell of a punch. You may be surprised just how relevant and fresh the issues are to modern Britain now. Time to remind yourself just how important a film this is.
