I loved it.
Gotta love the slant towards .45 ACP and LC in the movie (that is, aside from Marv's 1911--it's chambered in .38 Super )
'I love hitmen. No matter what you do to them, you don't feel bad."
Marv was my favorite charcter.
Nah, its Marvs old pistol, named Gladys. I think there was some back story in the comic about the gun, ill see if i can find my copy and see. In the movie you can hear him name the gun as he is catalogeing all of the materials for his final "meeting" with Frank.
I was jumping in the theater when I saw Springfield Armory on the side. My first gun is a SA Stainless 1911.
Backstory on Gladys...
I just read this. (Big fan of these books, and the film, and the blatant Springfield Armory ads) Gladys is the gun Marv took of the "toughest son of a bitch I ever went up against.) in his youth.
I love that film. The sequel is coming, Sin City II, A Dame to Kill For.
I think I also saw an older, blued big bore S&W or two.
<homer voice>mmmmmmm classic guns</homer voice>
Hartigan was my favorite character. Him and the creepy vampire dude.
Sin City 3: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0458482/
anyway, i don't think it was a 1911 commercial - there were tons of other guns.
but the guy that plugs hartigan goes over the ammo cap. of his revolver by about 4 rounds..
and the 1911 slide, as far a i know, won't blow backwards and off into your head... that little spike will probably be shot out with the bullet...
It was more comical because I know my girlfriend.
Just a comedic embellishment of the hazards created by barrel blockage. Still makes for one of the coolest ways Hollywood has ever killed a villian!
Really, really bad trigger discipline on the part of...well, everyone in the movie.
At one point, she looked over at me and said "Hey, that's a Springfield like the one I used to own!"
You may have noticed that most of them had really, really bad discipline in most of the other areas of their lives as well, so I don't think trigger discipline is really much of an issue when taken as part of the whole.
hammer down on a chambered round. It takes practice to decock a 1911 on a live round without an ND
I noticed several times where characters would pull a Springfield Armory 1911 and cock the hammer before shooting. Notice when whatshisname gets pulled over, the camera lingers lovingly over the SA logo...
Then again, this isn't Black Hawk Down, it's a comic book movie, so I take it with a grain of salt....
Separate names with a comma.
