In the assassination scene, Brad Pitt cocks back his Sten gun bolt and then the bolt slams shut. A Sten gun operates from an open bolt, therefore the bolt would not have slammed shut. The trigger pull shuts the bolt and fires the weapon; it will not fire from a closed bolt. If the operator releases the trigger before the magazine is empty, the bolt remains open. Many sub-machine guns operate in this manner, for simplicity and increased airflow to facilitate cooling. See more »
What are you doing?
Testing you. The way you tested me. I know you're armed with a weapon, Mr. Vatan, I'm just checking your safety catch is engaged.

There was no plot twist although there were several places for a plot twist. If you saw the trailer, you saw the movie. Also, the break from the period setting to give modern values with no point. The introduction of a sister to Brad Pitt's character, who is openly a lesbian. This would NEVER happen in the 1940s as homosexuality was against the law and they were greatly disdained by the public. It is a completely pointless distraction from the period setting. Another goof, German Army officers wearing Nazi armbands. I was beginning to think Quinton Tarantino made this movie. Another example of how Hollywood cannot make a period movie without sabotaging their own production.
