When Yukio accidentally shoots his translator, he is first seen pulling back the slide of his 1911 pistol and the slide locks to the rear. The slide of a 1911 will only lock back if a) the slide lock is pressed up or b) the pistol magazine inserted is empty. Since Yukio knew nothing about firearms it is unlikely he would lock back the slide by himself, so the pistol that accidentally shot his friend was empty of any ammunition. See more »
I first saw this movie in a late night slot on a satellite movie channel. The movie has a more than interesting cast of quirky and disturbing characters that appear throughout is length, in some respects quite similar to a Coen brothers film. The two central characters meet in the most unusual of circumstances and have more than one reason to hide themselves from their respective pursuers. The film portrays a different side to Australia, especially with the mixture of cultures presented. There are enough action scenes within film to keep the pace up and is accompanied with a good soundtrack. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and would recommend it.
