When Frank is time-testing his Colt .45 assembly, the magazine is loaded with cartridges. When a loaded magazine (1 cartridge is enough) is inside the pistol, and you action the slide back, this goes forward, automatically loading the cartridge in the chamber. This doesn't happen here. As soon as Frank finishes, the slide is held back,(no ammo left) and quickly Frank frees the slide lever down, as to show the gun it's loaded. However, when Frank pulls the magazine out, we can see it's empty. See more »
I think this incredible movie leaves a legacy of life, it makes us appreciate life an also understand that a life can be lived in a minute just like Al Pacino says in one of this movie's most beautiful scenes, it also talks about values, integrity, and moral principles, by sides of this movie's wonderful script it's incredible cast makes it one of the most outstanding movies I have ever seen. The incredible scene of tango, the deep arguments about life between Al Pacino's character and Chris O'Donnell's, and also those scenes when Al Pacino's character senses women's scent and tells them the name of the perfume or the name of the soap it's really amazing, all of this with the sarcastic sense of humor of this movie, it's really great. I TRULY RECOMMEND TO SEE IT
