: Sean Penn once kicked down Downey's door to get him on a plane to a rehab facility.

: kick down sb's door, simply means to break the door or something else? Help me please!

To kick down a door is to break the door open by kicking it. Downey couldn't or wouldn't open his door. Penn forced it open by means of strong blows from his foot.
