This film made me nervous as if a loved one were telling me a story, a story about her life and I couldn't wait and at the same time dreaded where the story might go. It's that unpredictable and yet that real. It's like a complex jigsaw puzzle where the last piece falls into place just as the film ends. Nothing happens that isn't somehow necessary or exquisitely foreshadowed. I love, love, love the symbolism, but it's not a heavy handed variety; it's symbolism that catches right underneath the ribs and takes your breath from you. This isn't a pretty film but it feels important. It's ugly ( so much that sometimes I no longer wanted to watch)and at the same time very striking. There is so much here about social classes, hopelessness, desire, longing, darkness, and beauty.

(es) wrote: Though I didn't have the highest expectations from Death Warrant, with Jean-Claude Van Damme headlining the film I hoped for at least some meandering action fun.Nearly any Jean-Claude Van Damme film comes with a generic contract in which it promises viewers action sequences and muscles. Yet for some reason, director Deran Sarafian has decided to try and seek out a story within the material he is given. And as a result, there is a distinct lack of action in Death Warrant. The feature spends so much time focused on plot building despite lacking an actual plot to build on, essentially rendering the entire feature an oxymoron. Even though there is potential in the film to be a legitimate thriller about an actual issue, it is conflicted by its obvious B-movie roots and inability to oscillate successfully between being a legitimate story and a mere Jean-Claude Van Damme star vehicle. It's the same kind of material Jean-Claude Van Damme would explore again in Pound of Flesh (2015) which served to be another predictable and cheap thrillerThough the film is set within a prison and clearly has the potential to explore a universe of criminal behaviour and capitalize on themes of confinement and crime, but instead resorts to the cheapest option available. There is simply an empty investigation that drives the narrative while attempting to distract viewers with subplots of romance and revenge rather than action and abs. Despite the title promising some kind of violence-fuelled generic contract, Death Warrant's only true casualty is the entertainment of viewers. Even the most dedicated Jean-Claude Van Damme fans will struggle to embrace Death Warrant simply because it just lacks everything that fans have come to enjoy about his movies while maintaining the thin plot and low production values that are frequently the source of criticism within his works.The film is a generic prison movie which borrows elements of a slasher film with action scenes and a revenge themed thriller as one of the key narrative elements. It takes in a lot of familiar ground and puts it into a singular film without the budget to provide much of a technological innovation, ensuring that the familiarity of its narrative roots are clear to even the most remedial of viewers. The scenery for the film is nice at first because it provides a convincing setting while the colour scheme has a gritty edge of almost sepia to it. Unfortunately, the imagery in the film becomes repetitive so fast that eventually it sinks to becoming just a lot of poorly lit shots. What little action there is ends up suffering as a result of this because the already conventional choreography ends up being shot from a series of angles with little to illuminate what is going on. It's not worth attempting to figure it out because if you're not gonna try and engage yourself with what is apparently occurring within the story then the action scenes should be no more compelling, but those are the assets to the film that viewers have come here to see. And in the rare occasion in which they get to witness them unfold, seeing them actually happen still manages to be a problem because they are poorly lit. Attempts to give viewers more of a chance to comprehend what is happening through the use of slow motion does not elevate the quality of them any further, rather dragging them on for longer than they need to be and reassuring viewers of the limitations that come with Death Warrant's low budget. I would say that limitation is a word synonymous with a film like Death Warrant, but you cannot use it to excuse the fact that nobody saw fit to make Jean-Claude Van Damme get into more fights and less conversations since that is common sense which does not need to be purchased. Apparently, they still couldn't afford it this time.Since the film is a star vehicle for Jean-Claude Van Damme, its success can entirely be predicated on the basis of how it utilizes its star. Unfortunately, it simply does not.Jean-Claude Van Damme is firmly rooted in generic territory and delivers as such. It's no question that the man is not a groundbreaking actor who did not really develop to the point of his potential until the 1990's, and the thin nature of the screenplay in Death Warrant condemns him to playing another poorly conceived character. However, Death Warrant is an even lesser example of what he can deliver. As I said, the film fails to deliver anything close to a decent amount of action sequences and as a result leaves Jean-Claude Van Damme with little to do. His monotonous delivery of ill-conceived dialogue has brief moments of flair thanks to his over-the-top melodramatic nature in some scenes which does bring in a mild sense of comedic value and serves as a nice contrast to the ridiculously serious nature of the rest of the film, but they are incredibly sporadic and do not reflect anything stronger in the rest of his performance. It's clear that he still has the potential to kick ass because he packs some strong punches and flexible kicks during the minimal action scenes, but his fighting skills and attractive physical qualities are made to play second fiddle to just how much he can drag the dreary screenplay on for. The answer is clearly not that far, and that's the distance of success that he ends up taking his performance too in Death Warrant. Jean-Claude Van Damme is simply a marketing tool who is underappreciated for what he can actually do in Death Warrant, and so the production wastes his time as much as it wastes ours.So as Death Warrant's overly serious nature, minimal production values and thin screenplay are overshadowed by a distinctive lack of action sequences, it delivers all the bad elements of Jean-Claude Van Damme B-movies without any of the good ones.
