Just saw a repeat of Hannibal -- was Julie Moore using a Glock or was I mistaken?

I thought she had a Sig when she whacked Evelda Drumgo in the beginning of the movie, and an HK (but it could have been a Glock) when she took on the Italians who were going to feed Lecter to the pigs.

She had the moves down but notice how she flinched every time she fired? I think it was Sig P228 in the beginning and Glock 17 or 22 at the end.


What an awful, awful flick.

Definately a SIG in the opening scene. And a 3rd Gen Glock with the hogs.

But then, she is the female FBI agent that has shot and killed the most people. ;)

It always bugs me when I can't idenfity the guns.:D Wasn't the best movie, I agree. I find it especially stupid that the Italians chose to speak poor English to each other rather than their native Italian.:rolleyes:

The faults with that movie are just about big enough to get an 18-wheeler sideways. But I admit I still enjoy watching it. I like Hopkins and Moore. Liotta was good too as was the the mystery man that played Verger.

Kind of like an Ed Wood film -- so bad they're good.;)

Hannibal was good for one reason, and one reason alone...

Had it been missing, it would have been perhaps one of the worst movies of the year...

Vide Cor Meum by Patrick Cassidy.

That, and that alone saved it for me.

It's too bad they changed it from the book - She had become very skilled in combat pistol shooting (IPSC/IDPA) and carried a tricked-out 1911. Would have been the best part of the movie. :(

The mystery man playing Mason Verger was Gary Oldman. No idea why he wasn't in the credits.

The book was far better, up until the ending. The ending went right past left field, it was three blocks from the stadium.

I thought all the actors were fantastic but too bad the story was so horrid. Any wonder why Jodie Foster said "no thanks." :rolleyes:

Oh, I knew who it was, just when it came out, they made a big deal about 'don't tell anyone who it is'. Just from the commercials I knew it was either Oldham or John Malkovich. Of course, I love them equally. ;)

It's easily Mamets worst screen adaptation. I shudder to think of how much they must have paid him to work on the project that was fatally flawed from the start.

Well, I'll shut up now... my movie-geekdom is showing. :uhoh:

Would have been a nice touch of they had left in the raced up 1911.

Don't you hate that flinching stuff?:rolleyes:

My hero Martin Riggs did the same thing! You'd think their firearms instructor would have said something about it, then again he was probably standing behind them!:D

"The mystery man playing Mason Verger was Gary Oldman. No idea why he wasn't in the credits."

He was in the credits, at least in the DVD I watched a couple of weeks ago.

I specifically watched for the character because I couldn't figure out who it was.

I bought Hannibal to watch the knifework, and to watch Anthony Hopkins be his usual slick self.

The rest of the comments are quite apt, I think.

Knifework? As in the kitchen scene with Liotta? Christ! I thought I was going to die. I just watched it for the Italian scenes and the guns. I thought Julie Moore did a great job -- too bad the story was so lame.

The movie was cheesy as hell.

It was pretty over the top just for the sake of the shock factor, IMO. Best left for talk radio.

What's with these FBI agents getting in to all sorts of messes? The ones I know are pretty normal people.

It's just a movie Skunk. You really think women fall in love with guys old enough to be their grandfather? Maybe Celine Dion but not too many else. Afleck's new film "Tough Love" will be him playing a gangster (yeah right) and Lopez is a Lesbian that falls for him. And I'M the one out of work?:what:

What? Haven't you seen a Sean Connery movie? :D It's Hollywood. Men get older, Women stay 25.

Mastro, try loading your Beretta up with Cop Killer (tm) rounds.

They will penetrate steel plates and make sparks, too! Heck, you can shoot at Chinese soldiers with AKs from 200 yards in the dark with your Beretta! Take that, Twoblink!

don't recall the movie name but somebody might. mel gibson and danny glover are cops...theyre at the range having a little shooting contest and if you watch gibson, every time he fires his weapon he's got a totally major blink reflex going. i can't believe none of the film crew picked up on it and had it corrected.

so at the end of the 'contest' he reels in his silohuette target that was supposedly all the way back as far as it could go and theres a nice bullet hole smilie face on it right where the head is, and HE WINS!!

totally laughable to anyone that has firearms experience.

don't get me started on guns that don't recoil now...

:fire:

:D

Lethal Weapon -- I or II. The Lethal Weapon series should have been called "The Beretta Adventures." :D Again, I find most actors that use guns in films are just actors learning the props. Someone that actually owns a firearm would probably react different -- but then movies are supposed to entertain; the actors aren't as skilled, brave, daring or even as good looking as they are on screen. That's the illusion of Hollywood.;)
