When Nick is in the drug store, he buys bandages and a bottle of aspirin. He pops a couple of aspirin and proceeds to re-bandage his hand. Nick is presumably a well-educated man and should know that aspirin is a blood-thinner and should not be taken by someone who is bleeding. See more »

A masterpiece of the genre
14 April 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much of Death Sentence as I didn't like Saw, filmed by the same director James Wan. However, I've witnessed a total control over film making through this "old fashion" yet original "revenge" movie. Original because James Wan managed to find a way to film this story in a very accurate and sensitive way. Take the scene of the pursuit around 45 minutes of the film : the work of the camera, on sounds and the very ideas of the pursuit (when Kevin Bacon starts to jump over every cars to trigger the alarms) was both realistic and yet somehow out of time and space, and so it conveys the very idea of a pursuit : real and unreal because unusual. An this is exactly what's this story is about : a normal man in a surrealistic situation. Why not 10 ? I did not like the photography, so main stream (like Saw... and many productions from Australia !). However,a great great direction for a great great movie. Grats !
