When they show Susan's x-ray of her stab wound, it is a little to the right on her chest but when they show pictures of her blood stain and Dave stabbing her, it is in the middle of her chest. See more »
Thanks for the Lyft, and a piece of advice. Always be nice to anybody who has access to your toothbrush

Most UK releases are pre-cut for a 15 certificate, reducing scenes of "strong violence and gore".
The following footage was removed, totaling 11s of cuts:
an already broken arm being further twisted
two knives being pulled upwards in a man's body at the end of a stabbing
a gory shot of insides hanging out after an explosion
a man's spine being severed before he's thrown off a building
One good actor can not produce a movie, when nothing else is there to add. Small talks may not always contribute to the atmosphere, expressly when randomly thrown into the soup. And a crude story remains just a sketch, whatever you try to do with it.
And this is the case with this movie. A huge potential wasted in a mediocre script, with barely convincing characters and a totally flat course. No music, nor the hurricane, could add to the lack of vibration in this scenario. This is a "Gran Torino" with a silly fake action movie beside. Denzel, who is a great actor and is playing excellent here too, becomes almost ridiculous trying to give some substance to nothing.
Total disappointment, and an unreal over-rating...
