When the shot at the end goes into the tank, it is at an angle, and the likelihood of a pistol round penetrating 3/4 inch steel is virtually impossible, regardless how closely the shot was fired.
In addition, Abel plugs the leaking oil with a handkerchief, again, from a tank this size, nearly impossible. See more »

Much better than the standard gangster flick implied by the title
I've been amazed at some of the slams this movie has taken. No story? Boring? Slow? You've got to be kidding. This was a fascinating character study of an "honorable man" trying to retain his honor in a corrupt business and political environment. From the title, I was expecting more of a traditional Martin Scorcese gangster flick, so I was surprised (pleasantly) that "violence" of the film was primarily about two codes of life clashing against one another. I can certainly understand a viewer attracted to the film because of the word "violence" ibeing disappointed at seeing so little on the screen. But I found the film riveting: excellent plotting, great writing and superb performances.
