Death Sentence

2007-12-21 13:27
What it's about:

When family man Nick Hume (Kevin Bacon) loses his son in robbery gone wrong during a rite of passage for new gang member Joe Darley (Matthew O'leary), he turns to Detective Wallis (Aisha Tyler) for justice. But when the system fails him, Nick takes matters into his own hands by seeking out his son's killer.

What the critics say:

"The result is such a mish-mash of conflicting tones and ideas that it doesn't play well on any level."
James Berardinelli, ReelViews

"This well-made, often intensely gripping genre piece packs some bizarre tonal extremities and a few moments of self-critique into its tale of a grieving father seeking his own brand of justice."
Justin Chang, Variety

"Stumbles away from its smart thriller open, completely immerses itself in a one-man vs. gang-of-thugs, love-of-guns flick with Bacon more like Bourne than corp VP."
Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card

"The morality of revenge is barely at issue in a movie that pushes the plausibility of revenge right over a cliff."
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"Fails to provide any sort of genuine social context for its violence."
Lou Lumenick, New York Post

"For a guy who analyzes risks for a living, Nick [Kevin Bacon] takes a lot of stupid ones, and yet he's still not the dumbest thing in Death Sentence."
Alex Markerson, E! Online

"From the novelist who spawned Death Wish (1974) comes another story of vigilante justice that'll make you want to hurt someone. Anyone."
Stella Papamichael, BBC

"Death Sentence is a better film than many might expect and also delivers several good doses of action for fans of shoot 'em-ups."
Stax, IGN Movies
After his family suffers at the hands of gang members, a father sets on a mission to kill each thug involved with the crime.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

2016-10-14 07:38

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
