As he is walking across the street, Bob pulls out his pistol and racks the slide. This would either eject the round in the chamber, which it does not appear to do, or load a cartridge.

Alexander Skarsgård and Theo James performed fairly decent, but Michael Peña seemed bored and too monotonic in his role. Interesting story, but weirdly played out. Directing and cinematography was decent. IMO, this film failed to deliver with such a great cast. 6/10 from me.
