I work at a movie theater and patrons mess up movie titles all the time. Here are some of the…
Protect what's yours.
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.
Avenge your 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.
phenomenally stupid and so self-consciously "gritty" that it just winds up ridiculous. at first only mildly unconvincing, with its white-liberal-nightmare extraordinarily conspicuous gangbangers that seem like they were imported from 1994. putting some generic tattoos on a shaven-headed Garrett Hedlund does not remotely make him seem dangerous, no matter how many Ed Hardy shirts he's wearing. i was actually prepared to let it slide when Bacon wasn't immediately questioned by homicide detectives after his first act of revenge, but then the movie escalates to a sequence wherein everyone is involved in an active shooter situation in broad daylight with dozens of witnesses that ends with massive property damage at the parking garage at Kevin Bacon's character's office, yet nobody is…
This being the second revenge flick I've seen today I can't help but be disappointed by just how bland this is in comparison to the truly beautiful A Bittersweet Life. Worst of all, it starts very promising as a sort of nuts and bolts revenge flick, Kevin Bacon is convincing as the desperate father whose child was murdered, the overall tone fits and the violence is gritty, albeit hard to see at times. The first half is decently entertaining but it soon descends into a clunky mess of bad lighting, overuse of shaky cam and a nasty tacked-on moral superiority that becomes especially clear in the last 5 minutes.
Kevin Bacon is easily the best thing about this and saves…
Kevin Bacon turns into the ultimate badass and fucks shit up. Spectacularly violent
Kevin Bacon is a badass in this gritty revenge thriller, some decent camera shots and ultra violent at times. I throughly enjoyed it.
Das realistischere Taken. Ohne Entführung. Ohne Happy End. Und mal wieder der Beweis das Cops zu nichts gut sind. Harter Film, FSK18 also gerechtfertigt. In der ersten Stunde ist die Action nicht nach 08/15 Kino Schablone. Nicht jeder Familienvater ist gleichzeitig ein Actionheld, wie sonst in Rache Filmen üblich. Emotionen versucht der Film auch zu vermitteln. Allerdings kommen die bei mir nicht an.
Ein Film den man zwar nicht gesehen haben muss, wenn man es aber dennoch macht wird man fast zwei Stunden wunderbar unterhalten. Kann man also gucken. Wenn möglich aber bitte auf english.
I can't remember how old Kevin's Bacon character was in the movie but he knows how to kick some serious. Death Sentence is about a father looses his who family to gang violence. He decides to get even and kill them all. The story of the film is cliche and has been done before about loads of times, but in this movie the story was a little more gritty and shocking at times. James Wan directed the movie very good and there is a scene in this movie and it's not a spoiler, it's just a scene were Kevin Bacon's character is getting chase by some gang and as he is running away from them, you get that one shot take were there don't cut away and there just show the action without editing, and it was really done that scene. Death Sentence is a gritty action film with great directing and a great performance from Kevin Bacon.
More a guilty pleasure of mine than anything else, this extremely violent revenge thriller directed by James Wan and starring Kevin Bacon is all but believable but it's really awesome to watch. I couldn't help enjoying Death Sentence very much even though I'm aware that it's average at best.
When K.B son is killed by a gang of, how can I put it? incompetent homeys. Mr Bacon, your average office worker suit, kills the perp in question, who just happens to be the gang leader's younger brother.
Threats, shootings and murder become priority on Mr bacon's agenda.
good performance from the Bacon. The film has plenty of action and bloody gunfights, and a gripping finale.
check it out, not bad at all.
Avenge your family?
A great acting from the whole cast fails to save this movie from its well-deserved doom.
James Wan's camerawork is as lively as ever and there is some striking imagery with its whitewashed grainy look; unfortunately it's all trapped in an increasingly preposterous revenge story. But I do like John Goodman talking about guns, the parking garage tracking shot is a stunner, and the grungy violence has its share of thrills so maybe that's enough to warrant a watch.
James Wan's direction and John Goodman's acting are the highlights, especially the scene in the parking garage.
