Film Preview: Death Sentence (2007)

Poster Rating: C-

Review: Black. White. Red. Can I be any more sick of these color combinations? The poster does very little to offset my disatisfaction with the color. Kevin Bacon’s image is far too small in the middle and adding a tag of "From the director of Saw" doesn’t give the film much credence. The "Protect What’s Yours" tagline is antithetical to the plot, treating this man’s family like possessions instead of people.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: Bacon is a highly underrated actor these days and something can be said for his choice of films. It’s not very good. While it highlights his acting skills, they just aren’t Academy friendly. This film seems so familiar to other revenge flicks we’ve seen, so there isn’t much drawing me to the film.

Oscar Prospects:

This won’t be the movie to earn Bacon his first Oscar nomination. I don’t know when that will be, but it won’t be for something so violent.
