Based on the book, "Death Sentence" - the direct sequel novel to "Death Wish", which itself was made into the movie Death Wish (1974) starring Charles Bronson. The Bronson movie spawned four sequel movies, none of which were influenced by the novel series. The author, Brian Garfield has disliked and does not care for each of the sequels, due to how it departs from his original character and theme in the books. See more »
In the scene where the gang is in the funeral home and the lead gang member flips through the wallet, you can see that there is the letter "F" (for female) for Nick's sex identification on his ID. See more »
No logic but lots of action, violence, gunfights and gore in this one. There is very little meat on the story-bone and in times where, thanks to TV, everyone is an expert on police procedures the lack of logic is almost appalling. But throw the CSI-knowledge over board and you're in for a crazy and entertaining ride. Nicely shoot with some great camera movement Wan is shooting stuff to pieces almost like Hong Kong directors did in the early '90s. No marksmen here, but who cares, this is pure pleasure for the eyes. Kevin Bacon delivers nicely and adds a whole new facet to the dad-on-a-rampage character. There's even a little "Taxi Driver" in him and not only because of his gun and hairstyle.
If this is your poison go give Death Sentence a try.
