SJWs Melt Down over Bruce Willis’ ‘Death Wish’ Trailer: ‘Alt-Right,’ ‘Racist,’ ‘Nakedly Fascist’
Big Hollywood (Breitbart) ^ | August 3, 2017 | Daniel Nussbaum

MGM Pictures released the first trailer for its remake of the 1974 vigilante classic Death Wish on Thursday, featuring Bruce Willis taking over the lead role — but some critics and commentators have already branded the unreleased film “racist,” “alt-right,” and “nakedly fascist” over the short clip’s content.

Willis stars as Paul Kersey, a surgeon on a brutal quest for revenge after his wife is murdered and his daughter is raped (Charles Bronson’s Kersey was an architect in the original five-film series).

The remake also trades out the original film’s gritty New York City environment for contemporary Chicago.

The trailer for the Eli Roth-directed film plays like most revenge films, promising plenty of gunfighting and shots of star Willis looking tough. In a twist on the original character, Willis’ Dr. Kersey wears a hoodie, an item of clothing associated in recent years with the Black Lives Matter movement.

The trailer for the film came under fire on social media shortly after its release Thursday, with at least one critic contending that the original series was “always racist.”

I don’t think they know what “fascist” means.

If you are looking for betas you need go no further than a conference of movie critics.

My local movie theatre took down the “No Guns” signs ...

Bruce Willis? Lots of shooting? Revenge? Thugs getting their just desserts?

What’s not to like?

No. I can hardly stand it anymore. Can we give them a part of the US, and then cut that part off with a Milwaukee saw?

If Samuel L. Jackson or Denzel Washington starred in the same movie with all the other actors and the characters they portray, and all the scenes and dialogue exactly alike, would they call it Racist, Fascist?

Sending Dr Paul Kersey to clean up the Chicago streets.

Don’t want to be too niggardly with the number of complaints about this movie.
