When Shaw returns Capella's sidearm outside the Chinese Club he presses the magazine eject so the magazine falls to the ground. When driving away, Shaw holds up the "last bullet" that would have been in the chamber signaling that he'd removed all the bullets from the pistol. But since he ejected the magazine from the pistol right before returning it to Capella, that would mean he'd have pulled the slide back to eject the one round while the magazine had still been in the pistol which would have just chambered another round. So Capella's pistol actually still contained a single round rendering Shaw's actions inconsequential. See more »

R-rated version has been cut on the so-called "Mirror Scene" where Neil Shaw (Wesley Snipes), in flashbacks, sees his partner being smashed against the mirrors in her apartment. In the US version you only see her being knocked against the mirrors three times. In the uncut version right after she hits the third mirror you still see the following: She pulls her head back an there is a lot of blood on the mirror. She then kicks her attacker against the knee, who then smashes her against a piece of wall between two mirrors. He then grabs her again, pulls her back and throws her against the mirrors again and you can see her actually flying against the mirror, breaking it completely. At this point the R-rated version continues with her falling to the grounds and several pieces of glass dropping on her. See more »
First off the technical aspects of this movie were superior in every sense. The sound, the editing, the camera work, all of it was fantastic and made this an enjoyable treat.
You have to enjoy all that because, with the exception of Donald Sutherland who is always on, the acting isn't there. Wesley Snipes is one of my favorite actions heroes, but we all know that action heroes can't act. Well, maybe Bruce Willis is the exception. But for an action hero, Wesley is great and does a great job here - for an action hero.
And, hey, Marie Matiko was easy on the eyes.
If you liked Enemy of the State, you will like this movie.
