In the final shootout, both NIck and Merrimen, are seen reloading their empty guns. After inserting a new magazine Merrimen is seen releasing the slide of his weapon by using the rear side of his shoe's sole. With a bullet in his right side, this would be a way to load an unloaded gun using only one hand.
But since the slide is already in the rear position and looked there, all he needs to do is releasing the slide catch and the gun would be ready to fire. And in fact, with the next clip he is doing it right this. See more »
More holes in the plot than a brick of Swiss cheese
In Christian Gudegast's directorial debut, he did better in directing, than what he's know for, which is writing. There were more clearly obvious holes in the plot than a brick of Swiss cheese. His screenwriting of Gerard Butler's character was way too overboard. It was still a fun flick to see, but lost much potential with the sloppy writing. What is more laughable are all the 8, 9 and 10 reviews for this film... are the producers that dumb not to think anyone can click on a user name and see this film was the only one they rated - clearly fake reviews. This film is a generous and honest 7/10 from me.
