| A remake that works
I'm not a big fan of remakes. I think the huge flow of remakes coming out of Hollywood these days shows a lack of creativity. Although the general story line is pretty much the same as the original there is enough difference to keep it interesting. Willis portrayed the torment Kersey was going through well, and in this respect he played the part better than Bronson.

I'll disagree with another reviewer that the NRA will love the movie. In actuality, the portrayal of a legal gun sale bore no resemblance to real life. The anti-gun attitude of Hollywood (while at the same time glamorizing guns) was evident. it would be refreshing if the y could handle the topic honestly.

And I'll also give credit for their paying homage to the original at the end

Trivia

Eli Roth wanted the film to be a modern, contemporary take on the story and used morning radio DJs Sway in the Morning and Mancow Muller as a Greek chorus to comment on the violence and function as the film's moral compass. Roth wanted the scenes to feel totally authentic, and sent them the situations and let the DJs film and direct themselves and comment how they would naturally as if it was happening. Roth also used viral videos, memes, and the urban gossip site mediatakeout, which director Roth is a fan of. Roth wanted to show the reactions the way they would really happen, making the point that tragic violence becomes a internet meme within hours.


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 ...


Goofs

When Kersey puts the brake fluid cans on Joe's chest, they clink together and are obviously empty.


Crazy Credits

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.


Alternate Versions

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.
