Poisonous incitement to do-it-yourself law enforcement is the vulgar exploitation hook on which Death Wish is awkwardly hung. Charles Bronson stars as a husband-turned-assassin after his wife is killed and daughter raped by muggers.

Adaptation of Brian Garfield’s novel is functionally simplistic, which is precisely the intellectual level desired for straightout exploitation treatment. Hope Lange and daughter Kathleen Tolan are victims of assault, after which husband Bronson freaks out in vengeance.

Plot angles are mostly overwhelmed by the easier, conventional cutting to the action, in this case one killing about every 10 minutes.
