Death Sentence

James Wan

Plot Summary

Part vigilante drama and part psychological thriller, the James Wan-directed Death Sentence stars Kevin Bacon as Nick Hume, a deceptively passive exec whose wife and children are attacked in a sadistic, gang-related hazing rite, and his oldest son killed. Hell-bent on cold-blooded vengeance, Hume pulls a Bronson by tagging each of the perpetrators, then tracking down and rubbing out each one, with the help of formidable, blue-steel artillery. Aisha Tyler co-stars as the homicide detective who first agrees to assist Hume in his mission, then begins to edge up to the conclusion that the unstable father himself might be responsible for the nasty crimes against his family. Kelly Preston co-stars as Bacon's wife, Helen Hume; the cast also features John Goodman (The Big Lebowski), Leigh Whannell (Saw), and Matt O'Leary. Ian Jeffers loosely adapted Brian Garfield's popular 1975 novel.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: 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, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Is the movie trying to show how bloodlust and revenge can destroy a person? If so, it simultaneously revels in violence. Trying to have it both ways diminishes the entire undertaking, rendering it despicably hypocritical. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Sep 1, 2007

Rotten: Blunt, bloody and far too busy with its sledgehammer plot and mighty gunplay to waste time on the main character's inner life, Death Sentence is a baseline entertainment. – Steven Winn, San Francisco Chronicle, Sep 1, 2007

Rotten: Bacon's performance in Saw creator James Wan's laughably extreme revenge thriller Death Sentence is six degrees of ham. – Jack Mathews, New York Daily News, Sep 1, 2007
