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 »

The US version removes some dialogue about F-1 firearms in the gun shop scene. It also removes a line in the conclusion, saying Chicago's crime rate has dropped for the first time in a year. These are present in non-US releases. 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
