… this is what I expected Death Wish to be, cool, blood and guns and all of that great stuff. It feels a lot like Death Wish but only better. The music is great and fits in the film, Charlie Clouser is great. Kevin Bacon, love him or hate him, he was fucking great in Death Sentence, at first I thought I wouldn’t like the film because he was in it but he was really good. James Wan mixes John Woo/Martin Scorsese/Chan Wook Park and it works really well. I’d have to say John Woo influenced him the most, there is some slow motion, (spoiler warning!) at the end of the film he sits down on his couch bleeding just like in A Better Tomorrow II (end of spoiler!) and even ends with a freeze frame. The cinematography is good, I think Wan tried a little too hard in Dead Silence but it is great in Death Sentence. There are some great shots. What I really liked was the chsae scene through the alley, a building and a parking garage. Great stuff.
