Half a Chance
Half a Chance (French: Une chance sur deux) is a French 1998 action comedy movie starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, Alain Delon and Vanessa Paradis.
The basic plot is about Alice Tomaso (Paradis), a young car thief who is in search of her father. She finds out that both car dealer and former mercenary Léo Brassac (Belmondo) and businessman and former master thief Julien Vignal (Delon) are possibly responsible, and accidentally runs into the business of Russian mafia boss Anatoli Sharkov.
The following weapons were used in the film Half a Chance:
The Trenchcoat Assassin (Aleksandr Yakovlev) uses a Makarov PM pistol when he shoots one of Sharkov's henchmen.
Beretta 92FS Inox
A Beretta 92FS Inox is the weapon of choice of Julien (Alain Delon). In the climax of the movie, Julien also fires it Akimbo-style.
Léo (Jean-Paul Belmondo) uses a Beretta 93R throughout the movie.
Léo (Jean-Paul Belmondo) has a richly decorated Mauser C96 pistol in his arsenal.
The Trenchcoat Killer uses a CZ 100 when he runs into Léo, Julien and Alice's trap.
When Léo and Julien find Léo's guard shot, an unidentified revolver is seen lying next to him.
Alice (Vanessa Paradis) receives "training" from Léo with a Ruger SP101 revolver.
Manurhin MR-73 Gendarmerie
Police investigator Carella (Eric Defosse) has a Manurhin MR-73 Gendarmerie as a sidearm.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
A Heckler & Koch MP5A3 is used by the Motorcycle Assassins in the beginning of the movie.
Besides the MP5, the Motorcycle Assassins also use at least one IMI Mini Uzi during the attack on the deal between Sharkov and Colombian drug dealer Angel Vargas (Luis Jaime-Cortez).
A Thompson M1928 submachine gun with a drum magazine is picked up by Julien in Léo's weapon chamber.
Sa. Vz.61 Skorpion
A Czech Sa. Vz.61 Skorpion SMG is used by Anatoli Sharkov (Valeri Gatayev) throughout the movie.
AIMR are seen throughout the film.
SIG SG 543
The henchmen of Sharkov use several SIG SG 543 carbines with folding stocks during the final shootout.
SIG SG 540
Beside the more prominent SG 543, a SIG SG 540 rifle with a folding stock can also be seen.
Galil 7.62 ARM
When Alice frantically drives back to Léo's hideout, the Russian henchmen fire at her with a scoped Galil 7.62 ARM assault rifle. Interestingly, this weapon holds a Galil Sniper Rifle-like short magazine.
FN Minimi Para
A FN Minimi Para is used in the final shootout, distinguishable by its short barrel. Oddly enough, the top handle goes from being positioned upwards to being folded down along the handguard between shots.
In order to stop the dynamite-laden bulldozer driven by Léo, the Trenchcoat Killer orders the use of several M72 LAWs against it.
Mk 2 hand grenades
When the Russians attack his hideout, Léo (Jean-Paul Belmondo) opens a crate of Mk 2 hand grenades and throws them at the Russians.
When they decide to face up with the Russians, Léo shows Julien into his arsenal. Many weapons can be seen here, including a Walther WA 2000 sniper rifle, several AK-47 variants, a FN MAG machine gun, a Stielhandgrante hand grenade and even a PIAT anti-tank launcher.
