Goofs

To the gentleman commenting about the wound to the doctor's left hand and saying that this ONLY happens when shooting two-handed and crossing thumbs. It can (and ha happened to me) happen when shooting one-handed and having a grip that's too high. First time shooting a semi was on a Ruger Mark III 22/45 and the pistol bit me on the way back INTO the upper.. See more »

Quotes

Ben: 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.

The terrible reviews are down to politics
3 March 2018 | by seanruth007-1See all my reviews

This is an old-school revenge flick with gratuitous violence. Nothing more, nothing less. By no means does it deserve the horrible reviews; most of them are down to politics. Rating a movie badly due to something as "timing" does not make sense to me.

While I would not call it a must-see, it's definitely worth a 100 or so minutes on Netflix or whatever. Do watch it if you're a Bruce Willis fan.
