Did You Know?
The scene when Riggs goes down into the skinheads basement mimics the scene in The Silence of the Lambs (1991) when Clarice goes down into Bill's basement. See more
In the dream sequence, when Riggs spits out the bullet, it's the whole untouched projectile. Not counting possible caliber errors there is little chance a Former Navy Seal and police officer wouldn't know that bullets deform. If the bullet in question hadn't sufficiently deformed Riggs would have been shot/killed as the bullet would have gone through its target at close range from a previously demonstrated deer rifle.
However, it's a dream that Riggs does not control and showing the full bullet helps the audience understanding quickly what it is. See more
