Death Sentence

Father's Love

For a while, I hadn't seen a movie with good substance. That was until last night.

Death Sentence, is an amazing movie about Nick Hume (Kevin Bacon) avenging the death of his son! Nick is a happy man with a happy family; perfect! That is until his son is killed by a wannabe gangster as part of his initiation. Nick and his family try going the legal way, but the sentence does not seem good enough. Nick decides to take justice into his own hands.

Towards the second half of the movie, the movie also shows the relationship between another father and son. The difference is so stark; and when you actually think about it, it's hard to see why each went their way.

The director, James Wan, has done a good job in most places. There are few gory scenes too which I felt were influenced by Saw!

I would give it a 4.5/5.
