The Lookout (French title: Le Guetteur) is a 2012 French crime drama (not to be confused with the 2007 American movie The Lookout) directed by Michele Placido. The film is about Mattei (Daniel Auteuil), a relentless police officer who struggles to take down a high-end gang of bank robbers led by Vincent Kaminsky (Mathieu Kassovitz), a former special operations marksman.
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
The following weapons are seen in the film The Lookout (Le Guetteur):
SIG-Sauer Pro SP 2022
Mattei (Daniel Auteuil) and other police officers are seen with the SIG SP 2022 as their service pistol. It is most notably seen in the opening sequence, during the bank robbery. SP 2022 pistols are later used by Franck (Olivier Gourmet) and Vincent (Mathieu Kassovitz), but Vincent's pistol changes to a P226R in a continuity error.

) holds a Glock 17.
Mattei tosses his weapon to Vincent. Note the SIG Pro
inscription on the handle.
Franck retrieves a SIG from an officer and holds Meyer at gunpoint. If you look closely, you can read the words "PROPRIETE DE L'ETAT"
(Property of the State) engraved on the front of the slide.
Vincent takes the SP 2022 that was tucked in his pants. When he drops the pistol and it hits the ground, it changes to a P226R in a continuity error.

SIG-Sauer Pro SP 2009
A RAID member is seen using a SIG Pro SP 2009. The RAID is the tactical unit of the French National Police, specialized in domestic counter-terrorism and law enforcement.

This is David's (Jérôme Pouly) sidearm and Vincent's main weapon after the bank shooting. However, there seems to be a continuity error: Vincent uses an earlier version of the SIG-Sauer P226 (without any rails) when he threatens Franck Vernon (Olivier Gourmet). A few minutes later, he is seen holding a more recent version of the gun, with a Picatinny rail. Near the end of the movie, he is seen with a SIG SP 2022 and is forced to drop the pistol, but the following shot shows a P226R being dropped instead.

Vincent holds his P226 at Franck's head. Note the absence of rail and the aspect of the gun, close to the "original" design.

Meyer (Nicolas Briançon) carries a Glock 17 as his weapon of choice. During the bank robbery, the pistol is taken by Vincent when he disarms him. Judging by the aspect of the gun and the absence of a rail, it seems to be a "Second Generation" model.

Eric (Francis Renaud) carries a Beretta 92FS as his main weapon. One of Mitch's thugs is also briefly seen holding a Beretta 92FS on Vincent.

Vincent is threatened while confronting Mitch.
Nico (Luca Argentero) carries a matte nickel Colt M1911A1 with black grips during the bank robbery. He later uses it during the farm shooting.

Heckler & Koch MP5A5
Another police officer is seen with a Heckler & Koch MP5A5 during the bank robbery.
Heckler & Koch MP5A5 - 9x19mm
David (Jérôme Pouly) seems to be using the 5.56x45mm model of the Romanian AIMR during the bank robbery. It's a realistic weapon choice since most of the assault rifles used in crime operations in France are Eastern European copies of AK-type rifles.
AIMR - 5.56x45mm. The original Romanian designation for this rifle is the PA md. 97 cu țeavă scurtă (short barrelled).

Visible in this shot is the RPK
style receiver with the enlarged front trunnion, which is present on some AIMR carbines.
PGM Ultima Ratio Commando II
During the opening bank robbery shootout, Vincent (Mathieu Kassovitz) uses a French PGM Ultima Ratio as his weapon of choice. The rifle is chambered in .308 Winchester and fed with a 10-round detachable box magazine. In this scene, Vincent deliberately wounds the police officers instead of killing them. Besides the dramatic effect, this shows that his degree of skill and training is clearly above that of an average bank robber. It's an appropriate rifle for a former top-level military assassin.

SIG SG 550 Sniper Rifle
Towards the end of the film, Mattei gets a hold of a SIG SG 550 SR fitted with a folding bipod and an adjustable sniper buttstock. Its previous owner fired it full-auto, but Mattei fires it semi-auto (probably not to hit any civilians).
