Drama, Thriller
In this Death Wish sequel (well, it’s written by the same guy), Kevin Bacon plays a happy family man whose oldest son is killed during a gang-initiation ritual. Rather than having the murderer get put away for a couple of years, Bacon Man has other ideas—and they involve knives and guns. James Wan, director of the lousy Saw and Dead Silence, pulls off a decent, if implausible, revenge thriller with this one. It wouldn’t be all that good if Bacon Man didn’t KICK MAJOR ARSE! Lots of folks get their legs and various other appendages blown off via vigilante justice dispensed by the Bacon Man, who, I say again, KICKS MAJOR ARSE! Garrett Hedlund plays a cool baddie, and John Goodman plays the mean fat guy—all eventual cannon fodder for the Bacon Man. Wan keeps things moving with his immense sense of style—and his decision not to cast Cary Elwes in this one.
