Goofs At the end of the movie, when everybody is at the Zebra club, Sam's sister fires three rounds at Wu. Wu apparently catches all three bullets, then the camera zooms in on his hand. However, the bullets shown in his hand still have the casings on them, thus they couldn't have been fired from a gun. See more »
