Heaven's Burning (1997)

Heaven’s Burning is a 1997 crime drama set in southern Australia. The film focuses on the tragic story of Collin O'Brien (Russell Crowe) who takes a job driving a getaway car during a bank robbery. When the robbery goes horribly wrong, the robbers kidnap Japanese tourist Midori Takada (Youki Kudoh), who’s just run away from her husband during their honeymoon in Australia.

After a while, the robbers decide to kill their hostage but Collin, who now sees himself getting dragged into a downward violent spiral, saves her. The two then take off on a journey through the Australian outback making a living by robbing banks, with an unlikely but intense love relationship developing between the two of them. During their journey, they are chased by the police, Midori’s dishonoured husband Yukio Takada (Kenji Isomura) who has turned insane plus members of the Afghan emigrant family who planned the bank robbery.

The following weapons were used in the film Heaven's Burning:


Smith & Wesson Model 28

The Smith & Wesson Model 28 revolver is seen used by both Colin (Russell Crowe) and Midori (Youki Kudoh).

Collin unexpectedly interferes with the Smith & Wesson Model 28 when the kidnappers decide to kill Midori after the failed bank robbery.
When destiny catches up with the two run-aways, Midori aims the Smith & Wesson Model 28 at her husband Yukio who’s been chasing the couple halfway through southern Australia. Note how massive the gun looks in her frail hands.

Beretta 92FS

A Beretta 92FS is the gun of choice for Mahood (Robert Mammone), the second of the Afghan brothers.

During the bank robbery at the beginning of the movie, a M1911A1 is used by one of the Afghan brothers, Gulbuddin (Salvatore Coco).

Springfield Armory Omega

Several characters are using what appears to be the same Springfield Armory Omega. It’s first used during the bank robbery scene by Tony (Patrick Dugin) and the security guard, who may have picked it up when it was dropped by Tony. Later on it’s used by Midori’s husband Yukio (Kenji Isomura) who uses it for the remainder of the movie.

Springfield Armory Omega
In one of the more noteworthy scenes of the movie, Yukio is handed the Springfield Armory Omega by his translator so that he can revenge his honour. He picks it up and while studying the gun he accidentally fires it, shooting the translator. There does not seem to be any recoil so the shot’s probably CGI for the actors safety.

A security guard, who’s probably picked up the gun from the bank, taking aim at the get-away car. He fires, and accidentally shoots and kills a woman driving with a baby in the backseat, the vehicle careens out of control and crashes, likely killing the child. In reality, a reckless act like this would have serious legal repercussions.

Luger P08

The Afghan Godfather Boorjan (Petru Gheorghiu) keeps a Luger P08 as his personal sidearm.

Unidentified Revolvers

Both Deputy Police Inspector Moffat (Matthew Dyktynski) and a police officer during the bank robbery scene use revolvers that cannot be properly identified.



High Standard K-1200 Riot Deluxe Model

A member of the STAR (Special Tasks and Rescue) team uses a High Standard K-1200 Riot Deluxe Model during the raid on the motel. It can be distinguished from the standard model by the rifle sights.

High Standard K-1200 Riot Deluxe, this model came with an 18 1/8th inch barrel and rifle sights - 12 gauge

Remington 870 Police Magnum Riot Shotgun

Another member of the STAR team carries a Remington 870 Police Magnum Riot Shotgun when searching through the motel room.

Unidentified Shotgun

One STAR officer carries what appears to be a shotgun with a scope. It cannot be properly identified due to the bad light situation and in fact it could also be an over/under hunting rifle or some sort of air rifle.



M1 Carbine

Another member of the STAR team carries a M1/M1A1 Carbine, which seems to be a rather outdated weapon to be carried.
