Added DiffLines:

* CriticalDissonance: Save for the first film, the series on the whole was largely trounced by critics. But action fans enjoyed them, and their support allowed the franchise to last well into TheNineties.
* FirstInstallmentWins: From a critical and filmmaking point of view, the first ''Death Wish'' was the best received film of the series. The rest of the sequels fell under a bad case of {{Sequelitis}} (they still have their fans, but usually for their SoBadItsGood nature).

Added DiffLines:

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: Development of this film was turned-down by other Hollywood movie studios due to its contentious, controversial and sensitive subject matter involving vigilantism, pack-rape, and crime.

%%* {{Sequelitis}}* {{Sequelitis}}: The film started as a grounded, down-to-earth crime drama where Paul Kersey brought about a cynical analysis of the attitudes of Americans regarding the crime waves of the 1970s, and stood out as unique in the action genre at the time. Its four sequels however became progressively less grounded in reality and increasingly over the top, with Kersey resorting to excessive means in dispatching one typical action movie villain after another and dropping the social commentary that magnified the first film's impact.
