You ever watched a movie and ended up sorry you did. Well “Death Sentence” was one of those films for me. I read a bit about it and thought it might be worth watching. I was wrong. This dark, depressing, unnecessarily violent film, had a terrible plot, sad premise and enough weird twists and turns to make you feel like you are on a rollercoaster that’s going to leave you hanging.

"Death Sentence" is about a man named “Nick Hume” played by Kevin Bacon, who becomes a vigilante, after witnessing the heinous murder of his son, during a robbery that doubled as a gang initiation.

The unsuspecting young man waited in line at a gas station to pay for a smoothie, when a violent gang appeared out of nowhere and began to rob the place. Before you know it, the young man is viciously killed with a machete in a terrible way.

This graphic imagery I could have done without. Why does Hollywood always have to make movies so graphic. Through a series of events, the dad begins to kill the gang members one by one, espousing a terrible credo of revenge.

Spoiler alert: later in this horrid tale, his wife is also killed by the gang, which dragged the movie down even further.
