Trivia

The names of the main characters, Parker and Longbaugh, are the real last names of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. See more »

Goofs

When Mr. Parker dives into the fountain and gets impaled by glass in the forearm, there's clearly a prosthetic piece around it, as the forearm is much thicker than the other one. See more »

Quotes

Parker: You take Los Angeles. Kay. If I say Los Angeles has become, over the years, a mecca for homosexual migration. I am in the right. But look at what I am saying. I am making it sound like faggots are nomadic if not predatory miscreants who have some implied need to move around. I am also likening of the Muslims, or Muslims to them. Whereas saying LA is filled with faggots is just being honest.

it's about the gun
2 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

now some of you are wondering what this movie is about. i don't blame you.

the title says it all. now usually the title is a cryptic clue, but in this case--it says it all.

if you are wondering why devote a film exclusively to gun-play, then ask yourself why devote a summer movie solely to computer special effects.

i know most of you are guilty of seeing one of the hot season flicks because your friends said it looked awesome. it's the same motivation for a different audience.

i'm an old pro, and let me tell you the action direction in this film is awesome, and i don't use that word often.

this film is a gunfight pasted with story, instead of the other way around. and i believe it shows a director who wanted to direct the ultimate action+editing rendition of a running gunfight.

i can only say, that if the director and the technical adviser ever read this statement, you have my vote as one of the best, most thrilling and realistic film gunfights ever. thank-you.
