Bruce Willis' Recreation 'Death Wish' Criticized As Racist

Eli Roth's 1974 film’s recreation, 'Death Wish' has been slammed by many people. After the release of its trailer, people gave lots of negative feedback on the internet. Twitter has been calling 'Death Wish' everything from "racist" to "alt-right fan fiction", and still on. The film stars Bruce Willis, Vincent D'Onofrio and Elisabeth Shue in the lead roles.

The reason being that the new film has been relocated to Chicago, whereas, the original was set in New York City, which shows irresponsibility. A user of Twitter wrote, “Angry, old white man becomes an armed vigilante against Chicago civilians. That's a dangerous message. Is Death Wish alt-right fan fiction?” However, some users thought the uproar was totally unnecessary.

However, the makers of the film have not yet made any counter comment after facing such reaction from the public. The film contained the idea of white man valiantly taking matters into his own hand and using lethal violence to take out who he thinks deserves to die, which cannot be ignored nowadays. The flick is set to release on November 22 in the U.S.
