With Hollywood stud Bruce Willis‘ Death Wish officially hitting theaters in a few hours, SOHH had to pull through for an exclusive New York screening to see if this remake lived up to Charles Bronson‘s 1974 classic. Needless to say – it does! Before heading out to see Eli Roth‘s new movie, check out our Top 5 must-see revenge movies to get you pumped for non-stop action!
1. Django Unchained
The 2012 Jamie Foxx-starring Quentin Tarantino flick is the ultimate, R-rated revenge movie you can’t help but love. A slave getting released and then taking out slave owners? This is a straight classic.
2. Kill Bill
This 2003 revenge-driven movie really cemented Uma Thurman as a top-tier actress and put an interesting twist to women kicking some serious a**. Another Quentin Tarantino action-packed thrill ride filled with martial arts and enough gore to keep you spilling popcorn.
3. V For Vendetta
Don’t let the smiley face mask fool you – V for Vendetta is pure awesomeness. Smart. Witty. And the twist ending will make you want to re-watch this 2006 flick it at least twice.
4. The Professional
The ultimate go-to revenge movie. Watching a young Natalie Portman relying on Jean Reno a.k.a. Léon to take out the drug dealers who murked her family? A 1994 thrill ride to say the least.
5. John Wick
This 2014 revenge movie is the ‘ultimate’ of ultimate movies. Not only is revenge at the core of the story but the action, fighting and everything else you’d want in a jam-packed bloody battle are all present.
