Clyde says the venom he uses to inject his second victim with, using the trick gun, is Tetrodotoxin. This venom, known as TTX, is indeed found in puffer-fish (among other sea animals) and can paralyze humans while allowing them to remain conscious. However, the effects take from 20 minutes to four hours to appear and normally include severe respiratory paralysis, especially in large doses. Any person having TTX injected "straight into the bloodstream", as Clyde claims, would suffocate to death within minutes. The only way in which he would have possibly kept his victim alive was by using a mechanical respirator. See more »

Good news councillor, we found Darby... I gotta say though, he's looked better.

This is a movie that's extremely fun to watch in the theaters because you get to hear and see everyone's reaction to each of his killings. The best one had people actually saying loudly "wow" and "oh my god!".
What drew me to the movie was the fact that the hero wasn't going around killing people with his bare hands or face to face. He was doing it with his mind, with careful planning, and deft precision. That was something refreshing to see. I can totally relate to his feelings of anger over the flaws in the justice system and his desire to take matters into his own hands - to make things right.
The ending was disappointing but the rest of the film was not and I liked it overall.
