Writers and Directors need to consult REAL weapons and tactical experts
I saw this movie for the first time two evenings ago on HBO. I guess my critcism of this movie is a culmination of seeing so many of the same mistakes in almost all movies. Even on a movie set some of these safety mistakes can be very dangerous. You'll never see a tactical team "SWEEP" their weapon across another officer. Even blanks can kill or seriously injure if discharged close to an individual. Entry teams will never walk in front of a window while approaching a building either.
I also couldn't believe the bad choice of camoflage they use when filming the sniper scene. Not to mention that they show a gross knowledge of the capability of their rifle when they over estimate it's effective range not by just a little bit. In this movie they "overshot" it's effective range by 1000 yards, which is double it's capability. An expert marksman couldn't have made two of the three shots with a .50 Caliber BMG, much less a .308 Winchester (7.62 X 51mm NATO). One thing that particularly sticks in my craw is that the gas tank on a car WILL NOT explode by simply putting a standard bullet through it. The mistakes and misconceptions in this movie go on and on and I can't go through every one of them with the room I have here. I think Michael Rooker and Robert Patrick were victimized in this film by shabby writing and directing. Both of their acting skills are far above what their parts in this movie offered them.
