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.

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.

This 2012 release of Death Wish II is the pre-cut R-Rated version. It was pre-cut by the American distributors to avoid the dreaded adult rating (X at that time), therefore the rape scenes have been heavily cut (not as much as in the previous UK versions, though) and Carol's demise has been shortened.
The BBFC imposed no further cuts to this version. Whether or not this is an improvement to the previous UK versions depends whether you prefer to see more of the rape or a few seconds or gore. Personally I prefer the gore.
The best choice still is the rare unrated Dutch version (CAUTION: Only the Tri-Star/Columbia version is fully UNcut, all MGM releases feature the R-Rated print).

The R-rated DEATH WISH 2 is still an outstanding movie - hence 5 stars - the additional scenes of rape are overacted and as intense as in I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, and it well deserves its 18 Certificate.

Famous film with Charles Bronson, first one from the Death Wish series and one of the best. Picture is fantastic on blu-ray and worth the upgrade. I got the US import as uncut, if you have not seen the film then you need to as it is one of the best vigilante films ever made, pretty violent and is still relevant today.

I am a great fan of this movie and as soon as I heard it was released on bluray UNCUT I just had to order it from amazon asap!-it appears to be uncut and the picture quality is a vast improvement to the previous UK DVD but I was a little disappointed it wasn't 16:9 widescreen,just normal 4:3 full screen.,and I was very very disappointed it had no bonus features apart from an original theatrical trailer.It is also REGION FREE and will play on all UK bluray players.(even tho it said region A.)I 100% fans of this movie go and order this bluray form amazon asap as its a classic and made much better on bluray.(even tho it could have and should have had better bonus features)

From all accounts this Michael Winner film shocked audiences back in 1974, and it's not hard to see why. From the early brutal attack on the main character's wife and daughter, to the unrelenting revenge dished out. Some of it feels a little dated nowadays, the side characters are given some truly awful dialogue (in particular Steven Keats as the son in law) , but the action and tension are all well delivered. Charles Bronson gives a mesmerising performance as the man driven too far. Bronson can deliver a look that can far more effective than anything he may say. Screen presence is often an over used compliment to screen actors, but Bronson has it in spades, watch the look he gives when he is first attacked in the park. Despite its flaws Death Wish is a classic 70's picture, and worthy of the highest praise.

Death Wish: 40th anniversary Blu-ray. Region free, R-rated. 1974.
The picture quality is truly outstanding, 1.85:1 no black bars.
Watch Bronson dishing out instant 'street justice' on grimy thugs.
Harsh, gritty & unpleasant, but the film is never anything less
than brilliant. I defy you not to cheer on Bronson. Top notch
soundtrack also. Run time:1hr 33min 23secs. It's also uncut. 33.
Extras: trailer.
