Death Sentence (2007)


After witnessing the brutal death of his older son, Nick Hume takes the law into his own hands and tries to find the people responsible for his son’s death. Stricken with grief, the rest of the family is unwillingly drawn into Nick’s mission that seems to get more and more violent. I had a lot of fun with this movie. Sure it was way over the top and very Hollywood but that made the experience all the more better. It’s rather fun to watch Kevin Bacon take a 120 on his character and transform himself from a meek well-mannered executive to a cold-blooded, skinhead vengeance-seeking killer. But at times you do wonder if he really thought this through.
