Death Kiss – Review

Death Kiss is an ‘Action-revenge thriller’ feature starring Robert Kovacs, Daniel Baldwin, and Eva Hamilton. Written and directed by Rene Perez.



Clearly heavily influenced by the Death Wish series, this action-packed film sees Robert Kovacs in the ‘Charles Bronson lookalike’ role (the character is credited simply as ‘The Stranger’); a morally troubled vigilante who helps out a single mother (Eva Hamilton) and gets to beat up plenty of bad guys along the way. If this was the goal then Kovacs certainly delivers in this heavily characterised role.

In a brilliant turn, Daniel Baldwin plays fiercely political (and extremely non-PC) radio jock Daniel Forthright; whose radio show tirades serve as the moral commentary and narrative device for the film.

In terms of cinematography and action sequences Death Kiss by no means excels but if treated (as I feel may have been intended) as an out-and-out B-Movie it delivers everything you would except. The scoring adds a very retro feel though I found it a little overpowering at times.

A solid 3/5 good fun action b-movie.
