Starring: Bruce Willis, Vincent D’Onofrio, Elisabeth Shue, Dean Norris, Kimberly Elise, Camila Morrone

Directed by: Eli Roth

Plot: A Chicago surgeon takes the law into his own hands to get revenge on the criminals who broke into his house and attacked his family.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 15%

Critic Consensus: “Death Wish is little more than a rote retelling that lacks the grit and conviction of the original — and also suffers from spectacularly bad timing”

Red Sparrow

Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Jeremy Irons, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker

Directed by: Francis Lawrence

Plot: A Russian ballerina is forced to become a “sparrow”, an espionage agent trained to use her body to gain information.

RT Freshness: 50%

Critic Consensus: “Red Sparrow‘s tense, character-driven story — elevated by outstanding work from Jennifer Lawrence — help this topical spy thriller overcome its somewhat uneven narrative”
