When an escort girl is found dead in the offices of a Japanese company in Los Angeles, detectives Web Smith and John Connor act as liaison between the company's executives and the investigating cop Tom Graham.
A gunman ties up an actor and locks him in his dressing room just before a performance. He also puts a bomb with a 90-minute timer next to the actor. Then, he goes to a room above an LA plaza and draws a bead on the actor's lover, international arms dealer, Liberty Wallace. Calling himself "Joe," he calls her cell phone, demonstrates that a rifle is pointed at her, and tells her to cuff herself to a hot-dog cart nearby (the cuffs are there). Over the next 90 minutes, the story unfolds: as a result of his daughter's death, he wants a public debate on the Second Amendment. As Liberty begins to bond with Joe on the phone, he gets some truths from her - and his revenge. Written by
The multiple shots about sniper nest show, his rifle has set position to cover area around hot dog stand and covering area is very narrow because of opened only last bottom slot in louvers. However, when Liberty's husband killers (and later from CIA) start shooting on Liberty from building roof or top car park level, Joe found them in his sniper scope and hit them. The view from scope showing picture, that rifle is on same level or below of target, but for such angle sniper would must change angle of rifle to position, where are closed louvers. And he definitely would not move louvers, it would reveal his position. Especially when all SWAT snipers was around. See more »
This film may not be perfect, but it certainly deserves praise for trying to make a statement that all the gun strokers will loudly object to. There should be more responsibility on the part of both Gun manufacturers and Gun owners.
Full marks for Wes putting his career on the line to make such an unpopular statement.
One accusation that many Gun owners make about such films is that they are typical Hollywood propaganda. Sorry - the sort of films Hollywood likes to make are films such as Red Dawn, The Green Berets, Commando, Independance day ect. where they can make a buck by glorifying firearms and having lots of colourful explosions accompanied by corny one-liners.
Gun ownership is not the only cause for the murder rate in the states as Bowling for Columbine points out. Canadians do not shoot each other with anywhere near the same regularity as Americans do, despite having a similar rate of gun ownership. The Swiss don't kill each other either.
Oh, and Datroy. Those 9,974 incidents include imitation firearms and only need be reported, not even verified. So if someone thinks they saw a gun and reports it, that's an incident. There were under 70 gun related murders for a population of over 50 million. In comparison, the US of A had over 10,000 murders. That's a per capita ratio of 25:1, well done.
Lastly, I believe the "hate america" website you allude to is the FBI website. I've also yet to see a drive-by baseball batting.
