Law Abiding Citizen

Other mistake: After killing his inmate, notice the blood on the inmate's neck is present in great amount. After camera changes, the blood is only on the shirt, the neck is clean with no holes nor coagulated blood. (00:51:00 - 00:51:45)

Other mistake: When Clyde is in the van driving back to the prison he encounters a road block. He evades this by driving down into the parking garage. There's no way that the police or SWAT would have missed this loophole. (01:32:34)

Factual error: In the scene when the police are heading to Clyde's house to arrest him, this tactic is highly unrealistic. In real life, when a person is simply a suspect in an investigation, the police do not all drive to the suspect location with lights and sirens going. This loses the element of surprise. They didn't even know if he was home, anyway.

Question: In court, Darby asks Nick if he's married. What's the meaning of this question, and why did he ask it? Seems a bit strange to just randomly ask someone that.

Answer: Because Nick knows this man is guilty. He says it to almost imply, "well since I'm getting off, may as well make a visit to your family next. You married, Nick?"

Answer: The answer that someone else gave to this question is misleading; indicates that Clyde asked Nick if he was married. It was actually Darby who asks Nick this question. And there really is no answer except that Darby is a menace and a scoundrel. He only asked this to aggravate or pull some kind of thread at Nick. Nick knows this, which is why he replies to him the way he does.

Answer: Probably because he was married with a child, and he wanted to know if he was also married, so he could possibly relate to his situation.
