Private investigator Matthew Scudder is hired by a drug kingpin to find out who kidnapped and murdered his wife.
Dan Stevens lost thirty pounds for his role.
You need some help, man.
Matt Scudder: Oh, God.
Danny Ortiz: I don't care. You want to mess up your own shit - but you're going to mess up mine, too. I need to know you got my back. Not that you're going to come falling through the door behind me...

At the beginning of the movie Scudder is firing an M1911 pattern pistol at the fleeing robber. There is no similar weapon on the approved carry list for a regular (carrying a badge and not undercover) officer of the NYPD.
UK theatrical version was cut by the distributor to secure a "15" rating (a scene of sexual threat (including an aggressive use of the word 'cunt')). This version was also released on DVD/Blu-ray.
