Revenge flick, not so bad

Death sentence is a simple story. the violence in some scences is bloody and intense. this violence is typical for a revenge flick. the language in some spots is very pervasive, but this language is acceptable at the time they say it. Overall, this movie wasn't that bad, parents, let your kids see it.

Decent Revenge Flick For Mature Audiences

Of a similar nature to "Death Wish" but updated and more thoughtful, stressing the "happy family" disrupted by violence. I watched the unrated DVD version and it contained a fair degree of graphic violence. Well done overall, the language is coarse but it is used to establish credible bad guys. At times heartbreaking and at times cringe worthy. I enjoyed the movie, but...(SPOILER ALERT!!) not for the crowd that needs a tidy, neatly wrapped happy ending. I would allow my teens to watch it but definitely not my younger children. It is a movie with an adult subject and aimed at adults, particularly parents.
