About Death Wish

The Death Wish film series is a series of five films spanning twenty years from 1974 to 1994 about urban vigilante Paul Kersey. The series, which also includes a 2007 related film, is based on the 1972 novel by Brian Garfield. The plot of all the films involves vigilantism and what justice really is. Paul Kersey is a man who had his wife and later daughter killed by acts of violence by criminals. He is an architect who becomes a vigilante after realizing that sometimes, the police can't deliver justice. The series has him in various American cities killing muggers or taking down entire gangs while at the same time trying to avoid the police and keep a romantic relationship. Paul faces many different challenges throughout the series but always prevails. The same concept is present in the 2007 film, but there are many noticeable differences.
