When showing McCall, as a Lyft driver, insisting upon a five star driver rating from a passenger, after avenging that passengers abuse of a young woman, it showed him receiving the rating from that passenger. In fact, Lyft drivers don't actually see the individual rating from specific passengers, rather a rolling average of the previous hundred passengers. See more »

Most UK releases are pre-cut for a 15 certificate, reducing scenes of "strong violence and gore".
The following footage was removed, totaling 11s of cuts:
an already broken arm being further twisted
two knives being pulled upwards in a man's body at the end of a stabbing
a gory shot of insides hanging out after an explosion
a man's spine being severed before he's thrown off a building
One good actor can not produce a movie, when nothing else is there to add. Small talks may not always contribute to the atmosphere, expressly when randomly thrown into the soup. And a crude story remains just a sketch, whatever you try to do with it.
And this is the case with this movie. A huge potential wasted in a mediocre script, with barely convincing characters and a totally flat course. No music, nor the hurricane, could add to the lack of vibration in this scenario. This is a "Gran Torino" with a silly fake action movie beside. Denzel, who is a great actor and is playing excellent here too, becomes almost ridiculous trying to give some substance to nothing.
Total disappointment, and an unreal over-rating...
