During the attack on the Arcadia, Alice is seen shooting quarters from her 12 gauge shotgun through the windshield of one of the tilt-rotor aircraft, killing the pilot. However, the diameter of a quarter is 0.955 inches; therefore, it would not fit in a 12 gauge shotgun, as the diameter of the shotgun barrel is only 0.729 inches. In addition, not only would a projectile such as this never penetrate an armored windshield as is found on tilt-rotor aircraft, the glass "spider-webs" with high energy impacts due to layered plastic laminates, and doesn't shatter, like plate glass would.

I have enjoyed previous installments of this franchise and went to see this most recent entry in 3D. Not having seen anything in the new 3D format I felt this action movie would be the one to showcase this technology. I was wrong. I found the 3D effects were most prominent on the periphery of the screen and distracted from the foreground action.
As far as the film itself, little plot development to the franchise theme, pretty vapid dialog (when there is any dialog)and no character development.
I enjoy action movies but can do without 90 minutes of frenetic action that does not really forward a story.
Hollywood - Please return to story telling without all the unnecessary gimmicks.
