Longer than a sentence!

''The equation. Sometimes it's... just chaos. That's all there is.''

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.

Watchable action yarn

"I'm coming for the rest of your family. You just bought them a death sentence, motherfucker."

As straightforward pulp revengers go, Death Sentence is disposable but satisfying. Considering the contemporary standard for its genre, you could do far worse than James Wan's flashy shoot-'em-up vigilante actioner. Certainly, Death Sentence is a dumb and derivative action flick that confu... read more

This movie was very predictable and not very realistic. It is a "wantabe" Death Wish. It tries but doesn't really come that close to the one that started it all. Kevin Bacon's character is a nice guy that tries to turn evil with revenge. I didn't think he pulled the change off very well. The character didn't really fit the part very well. One bright spot in the movie was John Goodman. His c... read more

"Katsottu: 6.3.2015, 2nd Watch, DVD Nick Hume (Kevin Bacon) on tavallinen perheenisä, joka kostaa paikalliselle jengille vaimonsa ja poikansa kuoleman, kun murhaajia ei tuomita. Kevin Bacon esittää roolinsa hyvin ja uskottavasti ja toiminta oli hyvin kuvattua. Yksi 2000-luvun parhaimmista toimintaelokuvista. "

“good for when you want a simple but fun action flick - nothing hugely special but fun, quite gorey (which isn't always the case with action films) and exciting at points.

An average movie

“After booking some major success with 'Saw', it took about 3 years for James Wan to follow up with another flick and I was really intrigued about it. Eventually, it is a rather standard vigilante movie and, not surprisingly, an adaptation of the book called 'Death Sentence' which was a sequel to the book called 'Death Wish' which was adapted in the most famous vigilante movie ever made starring Charles Bronson. However, it seems that the movies don't have much to do with the books, expect that they deal with a familly guy who decides to avenge his familly. Anyway, I thought it was rather well made, very violent, with some pretty decent performances by Kevin Bacon, Garrett Hedlund and John Goodman. The main issue I had is that the movie never really knew where it should stand. I mean, from ” read more

"Home - New I actually was impressed by how well directed Death Sentence was. Even if the story itself had a few issues. In particular I was kind of irritated at how obfusticating the cop was, she literally seemed to be there to push the plot along."

"3.1 Erittäin lupaavan alun jälkeen Death Sentence vaipuu suhteellisen perus kostotrilleritasolle ja loppu onkin suhteellisen täyspaskaa, mahtava alkupuolisko kuitenkin pelastaa leffan vaipumasta täysin suohon."
