When Karen McCann (Sally Field) requests Robert Doob's (Kiefer Sutherland's) police report, the clerk whites-out Doob's address from the Xeroxed copy, then gives that same paper to McCann. That would never be done, since the blocked words could be read through the paper from the back of the photocopy. Any real records clerk would re-Xerox the altered record and give McCann the secondary duplicate, from which the blocked address could not be read - either from the back of the paper, or by wiping the front of it (as McCann was doing).

EYE FOR AN EYE is an intense, nail-biting thriller that has a good message and taut direction. The script is from the people who wrote HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE, and this is just as intense. While the whole cast delivers fine performances, Kiefer Sutherland is the one who stands out and does a creepy job. It may be hard to watch at times, but I thought it was a rather moving and powerful film.
