In the shoot out while the traffic is stopped and Ray Merrimen sets up the M249 (SAW) on the hood and pulls back on the cocking handle assembly, two sounds are heard.. Normally when a closed bolt weapon's cocking handle is pulled back it will make two sounds, the first would be the bolt being pulled back and a second sound when the bolt closes as it chambers the round. However the M249 is a gas-operated weapon that fires from the open bolt position, so there would only be a single sound made when the cocking handle is pulled back locking the bolt into the open position and it will only close when the trigger is pulled.

A one time watch crime thriller with awesome gun shot sequences n a clever but dangerous heist.
Bank robbery, gun shot action sequences, trailer of this film n Gerard Butler, all these were suffice for me to view this n i was not at all disappointed. Saw this in a theatre. Comparisons with Heat n The Town will b inevitable but this movie is a solid crime thriller with enuff action/gun shot sequences n a dangerous n clever heist.
The final shoot-out scene will satisfy fans of Miami Vice (the shoot-out scene).
Another good aspect is that the pacing is good and it's never dull.
Pablo Schreiber (Preservation) was convincing as an ex military leader turned into a robber.
Gerard Butler has a solid screen presence.
O'Shea Jackson Jr. gav a solid performance (spitting image of his father Ice Cube).
Action fans will not b disappointed. Looking forward to its sequel.
