Death Sentence

Recognizeable names; Kevin Bacon, a still hot Kelly Preston, and John Goodman


Synopsis: A VP's sun gets killed in front of him at a gas station in a "gang initiation". The VP (played by Bacon) tracks down the guy who does it and gets his revenge, which sparks a war between he and the guys gang.

I give it a C+

There were aspects of this film that were good, but overall it was poor. One minute Bacon is a clumsy VP who doesn't know how to hold a gun, 5 minutes later he's like a well trained Hitman. Especially in the final scene. I thought this movie had a lot of potential as they managed to play on Bacon's characters weaknesses early on, but later throwing them out when inconvienent. I had a few other problems with it, but I have to admit, I never lost interest in the movie. They do a good job of getting you attached to the family for the most part before the shit hits the fan. Dark dark movie that will surprise you, but i'd wait for it to hit the stands as it's a rental at best. It had potential to be much better.
