Review Thirty-three years ago, Charles Bronson made violent revenge fashionable when he took to the streets of New York to avenge a horrible crime in Death Wish, a thriller based on a Brian Garfield novel. It is back to those bad old ways with Death Sentence, also based on one of Garfield's books and directed by Saw's James Wan. Starring Kevin Bacon as a suburban white-collar dad pushed past the limits of reason, it is taut, visceral, and unapologetic in its brutality. It is an ugly movie, but then it has an ugly story to tell...Wan and screenwriter Ian Mackenzie Jeffers aim to evoke that horror of random violence visited on undeserving people. The film is well cast; Preston and the two young actors playing the Hume sons are likeable, while Goodman, Hedlund, and the other gangsters are appropriately despicable. As the drama's rattled, desperate, and increasingly merciless center, Bacon is excellent, vulnerable and scary at the same time. Logically, the story does not completely hold water (in fact, if the movie were a boat, it would sink), but Wan keeps the action moving and the suspense percolating, so that the gaps hardly matter. In living up to its title, Death Sentence is not exactly a fun time at the movies, but it is riveting.
