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

"It's okay, as far as Kevin Bacon films go, it's an okay film. It's pretty much like Death Wish, just only more gritter and brutal. Just remember, if you go seeking revenge, dig two graves.  "

25 Movies That Bolshevik Gary Hates... (25 movies items)

"Consider this movie a remake of Death Wish, without any common sense applied whatsoever. I realize that this is James Wan's work here and, while I abhor Saw and all it's nasty, little brain-dead offspring, I loved Insidious and can't wait to see Insidious 2 and The Conjuring. A remake of Death Wish, especially a gore-soaked one, just doesn't interest me. That movie was done to death with needless sequels anyway. I'd rather see Bacon in Tremors, Apollo 13, X-men: First Class or the fantastic "

25 Movies I Hate That Everyones Else Loves (25 movies items)

"I really did not like this film at all. It's like taking Kevin Bacon and turning him into the Punisher. It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. The filmmakers don't even try to attempt to understand punishment and crime, they just create card board cut out bad guys as a plot device for Kevin Bacon to go on a war path. Consider this movie a remake of Death Wish, without any common sense applied whatsoever. In Death Wish, we seen Charles Bronson (Hey Chuck Norris, I know Bronson was your hero) k"

"19.07.2013 "You go near my family, and I will cut out your goddamn guts like I did your fucking friend. Do you hear me?" This was much better than i remembered it to be.First time i saw it i thought it was pretty boring, but now i found it to be a very exciting thriller. Kevin Bacon gives one of the best performances of his career as well in this film. This was a great revenge movie. "

"Death Sentence is an action/thriller film, and not a horror film. It's still awesome, though."

"April 14 "It was never gonna balance." "What did you say?" "The equation. Sometimes it's... just chaos. That's all there is." I thought this was a good movie. I like to think of it as a newer version of Death Wish. This movie proves that James Wan can make an action-thriller just as good as he can make a horror movie. "

Katselut 2013 (91 movies items)

"12.1. Netflix Alkupuoli oli ihan lupaava, mutta tuntui lässähtävän jossain puolipaikkeilla vähän turhan keskinkertaiseksi kostoelokuvaksi. Baconin roolisuorituksesta en pahemmin moitittavaa löytänyt, mutta ei riitä pelkästään kantamaan tätä loppuun asti. Väkivaltaa ja räiskettä löytyy aika paljon, ja toimintakohtaukset on muutenkin ihan kivasti toteutettu. Kyllähän tämän jokatapauksessa loppuun asti katseli, vaikka loistavan alun jälkeen itselleni pettymys. Muihin kostoel"

"6.1, Netflix Pekoni-Kevinin poika tapetaan huoltoaseman ryöstössä ja mies päättää kostaa. Ihan kiva että tässä on sen verran realistinen ote, ettei päähenkilö suin päin lähde ampumaan porukkaa vaan tuskailee jatkuvasti omaa menetystään eikä oikeastaan itsekään tiedä mitä on tekemässä. Musiikki nyt on turhan imelää, mutta silti toimii kohtalaisesti. Keskinkertainen vigilante-leffa, joka ei kaikesta huolimatta onnistu nostamaan päätään massasta."

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
