What you do, what you become, is not my concern. The world is full of so-called "men" like you, and, in a perfect world, anything we do comes with a price, but, this ain't a perfect world. People do bad things; if you're lucky, you get a chance to set it right, but most of the time it goes unpunished. This ain't one of them times. The mistake you made was you killed my friend. So, I'm gonna kill each and every one of you, and the only disappointment in it for me, is that I only get to do it ...

The UK release is pre-cut to secure a 15 certificate instead of an 18, reducing scenes of "strong violence and gore".
Compared to the New Zealand release (whose rating board also releases full running times in mm:ss), it's 11s shorter at 120:34 instead of 120:45. The cut version was released on DVD & Blu-ray while the uncut version was released on Ultra HD Blu-ray.
The following was removed:
an already broken arm being further twisted
two knives being pulled upwards in a man's body at the end of 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...
