Death Sentence ★★★½

This film an angry fucker, isn't it? Bacon chews the scenery and Hedlund is menacing. Wan's action sequences are first-class... especially the epic foot chase. It asks the right questions for a revenge flick and doesn't celebrate its violence, this film perhaps takes it a little too far but all the excessive violence builds towards the correct message. It is rare for revenge-driven films to do that. The film doesn't leave you in a good place, it is as depressing as it is violent, but is worth checking out. Vastly underrated.
