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.

"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

"Kevin Bacon vigilantena, sisältää tylyä toimintaa ja hyvät näyttelijät. Pekonin uran paras rooli, ainakin niistä jotka itse olen nähnyt. Myös ohjaaja Wanin paras tekele, jonka tunnistaa herran kädenjäljeksi hyvin nopeasti. Pohjautuu Bronsonin Death Wish II:n kanssa samaan romaaniin, tosin kumpikin sovitus on muuttanut paljon yksityiskohtia ja juonenkäänteitä. Charlie Clouserin soundtrack on loistava, välillä mennään hyvin lähelle Saw:ta."

2007 Films Ranked (52 movies items)

"The film is not sure what it wants to do with its revenge theme, and as a result, the film just meanders from gory fight scenes, with nothing stringing them together, resulting in an unpleasant, ugly film, with huge gaping plot holes."

"When: May 30th First-Time Viewing: Yes. How: DVD from the library. What'd I Think?: A brutal, ugly, and at times nonsensical revenge thriller. Other Notes: I watched the R-rated theatrical cut."

"Katsottu: 9.5.2014 HD Finistä Nick Hume (Kevin Bacon) on tavallinen perheenisä, joka turvautuu oman käden oikeuteen, kun paikallinen jengi murhaa hänen vaimonsa ja vanhemman poikansa. Rajut jengiläiset saavat pian kyytiä, sillä Nick ei jää suremaan pitkäksi aikaa. Kevin Bacon (Menneisyyden ote) ei ole tyypillinen toimintasankari, mutta sopii hyvin rooliinsa. Garrett Hedlund (Neljä veljeä) on jengin johtaja ja John Goodman (Big Lebowski) näyttelee kieroa asekauppiasta. Elokuva on "

"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. "

"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. "
