Nick Hume is a mild-mannered executive with a perfect life, until one gruesome night he witnesses something that changes him forever. Transformed by grief, Hume eventually comes to the disturbing conclusion that no length is too great when protecting his family.
One of the most underrated
films of the past decade.
Wan's best, even over The Conjuring.
I wish he'd direct more dramas.
Sorry for being so blunt, but this movie is fucking amazing. It's brutal, horrifying, nauseating, unrelenting and will make your blood boil, as it was meant to. It's gratuitous violence may turn off the easily shaken, but... Wow... This is one hell of a revenge thriller based on Brian Garfield's novel. The unrated version is the one to watch.
Avenge your family?
Even though it has a seen it before kind of plot (guy loses a loved one after gang kills them, guy seeks revenge) the movie is just violent fun with an awesome Kevin Bacon in the lead role, it is still severely underrated.
This movie is Great, love me some Bacon. It has a sad story that had me in tears from the very beginning and some really good action. The sound and effects the guns make in this movie is so powerful and effective, I love it.
Viewed on Shomi
I really liked Death Sentence, up to a point. It's a gritty, very violent film that jumps from plausible to Looney Toons in the third act.
Kevin Bacon is fully committed as a grieving father hellbent on revenge and receives full marks.
I started playing this Random Movie Roulette game started by Tobias Andersen. It's an enormous list of films, and you can find it and follow the rules, or twist the rules a little bit to suit your needs like I did. I have 10 films randomly selected, and I allow myself to remove only one film from those 10, this is only if I really have no desire to sit through it, but I must watch the remaining nine films, no matter what. Once I have those 9, or 10 films selected, I randomly select the order in which I watch them, and then I begin watching. Check out my list "Random Movie Roulette - Round 1," to look at…
A solid revenge flick, rooted around a chilling performance from Kevin Bacon. Wan's most obscure flick, he's still in his early mode where he isn't entirely secure in building atmosphere, but he's at least recovered from Dead Silence. Also it's always nice to see John Goodman in stuff
The badguys are cringeworthy and the constant use of cheesy "sad music" is laughable, but Kevin Bacon is really fucking good and the action sequences are phenomenal. One of few films were CG blood looks pretty good.
Certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoyed this grim, ultra-violent and nasty piece of work. It's only Wan's third film, so he still hadn't perfected his craft, but you can see hints of the Wan we know today in DEATH SENTENCE. Bacon makes for a compelling lead character and Hedlund is truly despicable as the villain. You'll probably feel dirty after you watch it. I know I did.
Even though I was positively surprised that a Hollywood movie is this hideous and violent and a basic, good vigilante, I am hugely irritated by the fact that father (brilliantly played by Kevin Bacon) knows too easily how to do dirty works. That quite long scene where bad guys chase father into a parking garage is a great scene, I really liked that. Somehow I wasn't disgusted by a huge amount of sugar in the beginning like I usually do. Actually this even made me cry sometimes because it was touching. But they still should have write father's behaviour better, to make him more believable.
Great action thriller. A man takes the law in his own hands when his son is killed and ends up having to fight a war with a gang of killers. The characters are giving depth and the cast do a good job. The story is good and told well. The action is good, brutal and bloody. A solid production and a great job from the director.
Revenge is a dish best served with a side of Bacon!!!!
The poster is as amazing as the movie.
Goodman's the bomb
Kevin Bacon, you did your best. A stirring, invigorating presence in a one-note effort, afraid to embrace it's violence yet still trying to be some grueling piece of cinema. It's a crisis of confidence, as Wan seems unable to make this interesting. It's set-up is so conventional, almost in a way it could contribute to some parody angle, but then Wan decides to get gritty, mimicking something out of a Punisher comic in the end. Any thematic relevance goes out the window early, as Wan seems to be prodding the morality of vengeance, while simultaneously shoving plausibility off the cliff at the first bit of action. Characters exist to progress the narrative, violence is a substitute for content and conventionality is a crutch. I can sympathize with the fans of this supposedly underrated genre-flick, but I sadly don't count myself among them.
