The end of the movie references a "Glock 40". This refers to the caliber of the bullet, not the model of the pistol. Seventeen years after the movie was released, Glock did introduce in 2005 a model "Glock 40" which has the caliber of 10mm. The 10mm cartridge, created in 1993, was primarily targeted at law enforcement usage, of which the US Marshals would have been a prime candidate. See more »
When Royce is handed, and brandishes, his Glock after the magazine has been swapped for an empty one he is apparently unaware the weapon is empty. The Glock is constructed from polymers with very few metal parts, as such it is very noticeable from the change in weight when the ammunition has been removed as it reduces the weight of the weapon by around one third.
Even if he had only just obtained the Glock, he would surely have noticed the tampering the moment it was returned to him and would have then replaced the magazine with a full one, or not attempted to discharge the firearm. See more »
U.S. Marshals has Tommy Lee Jones as Sam Gerard, his Oscar winning role from The Fugitive, chasing after Wesley Snipes. After a quite spectacular plane crash, the hunt is on. Snipes trying to prove he's innocent of crimes he didn't commit and Jones and his team of bloodhounds relentlessly searching for him. There is no skimping on the action and the leap from a building to a moving train is one nifty stunt. The only trouble I have is that you don't care enough about Wesley Snipes' character as you do for Harrison Ford in The Fugitive. Wesley Snipes is a former spy in the film, and he uses his skills to evade the cops. Ford was just a doctor, with no special training at all. Still, for an action film, this one delivers.
