  • Death Sentence's message - that vengeance is ultimately futile, spinning out a vicious circle of rage and hate - may be commendable, but there's nothing noteworthy about the way Wan, Bacon and their troops go about delivering it. show more

  • Bears more than a slight connection to the landmark of the genre, 1974's "Death Wish," starring Charles Bronson. It is based on novelist Brian Garfield's sequel to his original book, though any resemblance is tenuous at best. show more

  • Wan's movie is very efficient. Bacon, skilled pro that he is, provides the character the movie needs, just as he has in such radically different films as "Where the Truth Lies," "The Woodsman" and "Mystic River." show more

    This has to be one of the best vigilante movies I have seen in years. Kevin Bacon was as wonderful surprise. My family and I watched it 3 times in 2 days. I have a feeling it was overshadowed by Jodie Foster's The Brave One, which cannot hold a candle to Death Sentence.
