...from "Bad Boys II". Nice hardware, but take note where the G36K and the Glock are pointed. At least the one in the middle has the finger off the trigger.

Why Can't HollyWierd ever get the basics right. I guesss it o.k. to be irresponsible if you look cool.

Supposedly they went through a lot of weapons training, and from the looks of it, they all have their fingers off the triggers, but they need to point them in a safe direction, but good job for Will!

If those two aren't careful, they could accidently shoot Will Smith--effectively ending his Hollywood movie career.....

This photo needs a caption. Like, "Bad Boys, Poised and Ready to shoot their partners in the crotch".

When did the "sleeveless look" become tactical? :confused:

Since Will Smith bulked up and gained some biceps.

I saw this this weekend.... It was really one long car chase, and one big gun fight. Lots of fun, but a little too long.

If they "went through a lot of weapons training" as Wanderer stated, they need to go back for a remedial course... The girl was the only one I saw who ever had her finger off the trigger...

But then again, I didn't go for a safety lesson.

Caption: "If Will says 'jiggy' one more time I'm gonna have to give him a fist full of HK!!!"

I saw Will Smith interviewed regarding this movie. He said (rough quote),

With all of the action roles I'm getting, I'm actually becoming a pretty good shot."

He was quite serious. The next scene in the interview showed him running and shooting and not even looking at his pistol or the targets...

Rambo, 1970-something.

Why can't all action movies made to the same standard as "Heat", "Ronin" or "BHD"?

Rambo, 1970-something.

I think it actually dates back to the "sandal" movies. Hey, if their shirts had sleeves, how could you see their bicepses? ;) Why do fighter pilots pull off their oxygen masks? 'Coz otherwise you couldn't see their faces! :D
(I heard that was one of the reasons why there were no powered armour in "Starship Troopers")


PS: Psst, it's a G36C, not a K. ;)

One squeeze by Martin Lawrence (with his G36C) and Will is never going to be able to get 'Jiggy wit it' ever again ! :uhoh:

I saw this movie over the weekend and I really liked it! :D Sure it was WAY over the top and unrealistic, but there was no lack of action! I tend to notice bad gun handling, etc., but usually let it go if the movie is exciting and fun.

Great...and I bet he thinks the go to computer for hacking into alien mothership mainframes is an Apple Powerbook? :D

I saw it this weekend too. "Over the top" is an understatement. It was a little long and I noticed several rules being broken. Having said that, I'd see it again. It was very funny and worth the $6 ticket.

Funny how it's usually only the actresses that know where to keep their finger.
Or perhaps its just a female instinct.
