Concerning realistic shooting sequences in a movie. The scene where Vincent gets his "kit" back from the longhair and the skinhead in the alley...is the most realistic I’ve seen as of late.

Basically a textbook multi target engagement from concealment at arms length:

1. Ascertain the threat and become proactive.
2. Turn gun side away from threat.
3. Sweep concealment garment
4. Draw and engage closest threat with two shots from "retention" to prevent a weapons grab.
5. Lock out to a freestyle position and engage threat two with failure drill.
6. Re-engage threat one again.

Very nicely done...I wonder if Tommy boy is doing his own shooting (or does he have a stand in?)...that was pretty fast. But in real life the threats would have most likely retreated after being shot...instead true to Hollywood...they just fell down.

Movie is worth seeing.

I heard he did his own shooting.

I thought that scene was awesome. People in the theatre where ooohing and awwwing.

One of the armorer's was a guy named Gibson...maybe he's also the shooting stunts coordinator?

I didn't hear any "ooooohing and ahhhhing", but right when that second guy hit the ground I said in a normal tone "Fucking awesome" and a couple of strangers turned around and looked at me with a smile on their face and nodding their head.

I think that scene gave me wood!

I also liked the sound quality on the shooting, it was loud and deafening like a real one would be, not some cheezy dubbed pistol pop from a 1970's movie.

I loved the movie but for the ending. To me if your jod contains pistol play wouldn't you be wearing protection?
