Some moviegoers are hyped for Willis and director Eli Roth's team up. 

Roth told Yahoo Movies:

“We wanted to bring back that great, classic Bruce Willis we all know and love and just do a fun, badass update of a revered classic. I wanted to bring Bruce back to that 'Fifth Element,' 'Unbreakable,' 'Die Hard' glory and have him craft another iconic performance, and I really think he did it. I mean I really think this can be his Taken. The fun is watching him go crazy and watching someone slowly move the moral goal post.”

Critics are blasting Eli for remaking "Death Wish" in today's socio-political climate. Many have pointed out the original film is also problematic for portraying young men of color as criminals and praising a middle-aged white man for taking justice into his own hands. It's 2017, and with the visibility around police violence and systemic racism, many are calling the film's premise outdated, a setback and culturally offensive.
