Eli Roth was a huge fan of Dean Norris from Breaking Bad (2008), and at one point was going to get second dog and name him after Norris' character Hank Schraeder. Roth had confessed this to Norris at a party years ago, and Norris did not forget. Although Roth only has one dog (Monkey) he still swears that his second dog will be named Hank Schraeder. See more »
Kersey's daughter is released from the hospital and within a week her trachea has seemingly healed up. She isn't suffering from any muscle atrophy and/or psychological problems as a result of this heinous crime. She's very well adjusted. See more »
People rely on the police to keep them safe. That's the problem. The police only arrive after the crime has taken place. That's like. Trapping the fox as he's comin' out of the hen house. If a man really wants to protect what's his. He has to do it for himself.

When the title is shown on screen, it is faded away by the image of "flatlining" on a medical monitor. This effect is used in the closing credits as well. See more »
The Indian release was censored, in order to obtain a UA rating the distributor chose to remove stronger instances of violence and injuries; (sight of a bullet being removed from a man's hand, blood splattering from a man's head as he's shot, a man's head being crushed as a car collapses, the stitching of a bullet wound in a man's shoulder and the torture scene involving break fluid). Further visual and audio changes were made which included the muting of strong language during a rap song and the blurring of bottles of liquor. See more »

Solid revenge thriller
I enjoyed it with my wife. It was entertaining and same time it offered some funny scenes. The story is well adapted for Bruce Willis and the running time was perfect. It's a fast paced thriller with lot of suspense. This is another example how movies of nowadays should be done. I give a 7 and my wife 6/10 = 6.5
