Movie Review ~ Death Sentence

Death Sentence starring Kevin Bacon is a movie about a man, Bacon, who gets caught up in a personal vendetta type gang war. I won't go into many details for those of you who haven't seen it, though I'm sure many of you have since I am usually a little behind the times as far as watching movies and this was from 2008.

Basically, his hockey star son gets killed by a gang initiation and instead of pointing the guy out who did it he decides to take matter into his own hands and go after the gang member who killed his boy. Later in the movie, Bacon, his wife, and his other son gets shot but somehow he survies; wakes up in the hospital, goes in to see his boy who is in a coma and sneaks out of the hospital to avoid the police not knowing his son shows signs of improvement. This is the part where the movie goes off into a fantasy world because Bacon goes back to his home, changes his bandages and clothes, goes out buys guns, then comes back home again to get all Rambo'd up, loading guns and the like. How stupid is that? Like the police would not have looked for him at his house. Hell, they would have been waiting for him there. If not on the first trip home, certainly by the time he got back from buying guns. Give me a break.

I won't tell you the rest of the movie but if you like action and suspense it is definitely worth your time. It has some good twists in it and Kevin Bacon is the perfect actor for this part. Overall I would give it on My Cantankerous Scale, a 8 fLaMiNg 8bAllS. A good movie, better than average, not excellent nor orgasmic but good. A good solid 8 fLaMiNg 8bAllS.

Here's the trailer for Death Sentence.

So, what's your opinion about my first movie review. Agree or Disagree? Too much info? Not enough info? Should I write more movie reviews?


  1. Yes you should write more movie reviews! LOVE the 8 ball scale! I like the fact that you don't give out to much info, that's what makes a person want to see the movie!

  2. Thanks, I wasn't sure how well it would be received. I appreciate your comments.
