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.
Are you that doctor?
Paul Kersey: I am that doctor. And right now, I'm *your* doctor.
When he has the car jacked up over the killer, to drop the car, he shakes the chain. With the weight sitting on the jack, he would have needed to pull pretty hard to get the jack to fall out from under the car.
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.
The UK theatrical version was cut by 14 seconds to reduce a torture scene. This was done to earn a 15 certificate after the uncut version originally received an 18. The uncut version was later released on home media formats.
