Story intro

Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis), a Chicago trauma surgeon, lives with his wife, Lucy, and daughter, Jordan. When the family visits a restaurant with Paul's brother Frank (Vincent D'Onofrio), a valet named Miguel photographs their home address from their car's navigation software after hearing about a night they plan to be away from home. However, Paul is called to work that night, and Jordan and Lucy are home when the burglars arrive. The ensuing debacle leaves Lucy dead and Jordan in a coma; one of the burglars is scarred when Lucy and Jordan fight back. Paul becomes frustrated with the lack of police progress on the case, led by detectives Raines and Jackson. After seeing two men harassing a woman, Paul tries to intervene but is beaten up. He visits a gun store, but there is a long wait to get a gun. When a gang member is brought to the hospital and his Glock 17 falls off the gurney, Paul takes it and practices shooting. He uses the gun to stop a carjacking, a video of which goes viral. During the effort, he cuts his left hand due to improperly handling the gun. Enjoying his efforts as a vigilante, Paul decides to kill a drug dealer calling himself "the Ice Cream Man" after a young boy comes to the hospital with a gunshot wound in his leg. Paul calmly walks up to the dealer, referring to himself as "his last customer," and murders him in cold blood. At the hospital, Paul recognizes a critically injured Miguel, wearing Paul's watch stolen during the home invasion. Miguel dies and Paul takes his phone, leading him to a liquor store that fences stolen goods. The owner, Ponytail, recognizes Paul and messages one of the burglars, Fish, before Paul demands his family's belongings back at gunpoint. Fish arrives and accidentally kills Ponytail; Fish claims the burglary was done by a mechanic named Joe before Paul kills him.
