Dr. Paul Kersey is an experienced trauma surgeon, a man who has spent his life saving lives. After an attack on his family, Paul embarks on his own mission for justice.
Although not credited, Dean Georgaris re-wrote the screenplay from page one with director Eli Roth. There were nine writers on the screenplay by the final shooting draft, and the Writer's Guild ultimately decided to give Joe Carnahan sole credit ... ...

Are you satisfied?
Detective Kevin Raines: No.
Detective Kevin Raines: Now I'm satisfied.
When Paul fires his gun while lying on the ground, he is holding the gun in his left hand only, and sustains an injury to that hand from the slide pinching the skin between his thumb and index finger. This injury occurs frequently to an untrained shooter, but not as shown. That injury occurs when a novice shoots with both hands gripping the gun, and forgetting to have both thumbs on the same side of the gun. In that case, the injury is to the top (non gripping) hand, not the shooting hand. Paul was not using a two hand grip, and even if he had, the injury would have been to his right hand for a left hand shooter.
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.
