DEATH SENTENCE (Theatrical Release USA 2007)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Stars ììì

Death Sentence
is driven by graphic and gory violence, but couples that with outstanding acting. Director James Wan performs excellently within this genre. John Goodman is memorable as an underground gun salesman for gangs. Kevin Bacon performs really well as the father of a murdered favorite son. This film is a cold-blooded look at how gang members think, execute plans, and react when a close gang member gets killed. The movie provides a good thrill ride that gives the viewer roller coaster movement through emotions ranging from sorrow to justified revenge.
