Saw TV ad for the new Tom Hank/Paul Newman movie "Road to Predition", and already there are two gun-related errors. In one scene Tom Hank raised a 1911 and cocked the hammer with a ratcheting click:
- One does not carry 1911 hammer down, lest one blows off one's family jewel.
- The ratcheting click (listen carefully) belongs on a revolver, not an automatic.
BTW, also in the promo, Paul Newman utters "This is the life we chose..." That line is lifted directly from Godfather II, when Michael Corleone and Hyman Roth had their little talk in a Havana hotel room. Not very inspiring.
