Overdose 2 (El pico 2) is a 1984 Spanish drama movie directed by Eloy de la Iglesia, a sequel to El pico (1983). The main character of the first film, young heroin addict Paco relocate from Bilbao to Madrid together with his father, a high rank officer of Guardia Civil. Paco is trying to get drug treatment, but after his involvement in a murder in Bilbao comes to light, he is arrested. In prison, Paco returns to drug use. His father, using illegal methods, seeks the release of his son, but upon the release from prison Paco joins a gang engaged in robberies.
The following weapons were used in the film Overdose 2 (El pico 2):
In the scene of the robbery of a jewelry store, committed by Paco and his friends, a store manager (Paco Racionero) fires a Llama Comanche revolver after the getaway car. This is a version with 4" barrel and duty sights. Judging by the gap between the front side of the cylinder and the frame, it is chambered in .38 Special rather than in .357 Magnum, so the revolver may be Llama Martial but the shape of the front sight is more common for Comanche.
Llama Comanche with 4" barrel and adjustable sights - .357 Magnum
The store manager fires after the robbers' car.
A very good view of the revolver. Note the large gap between the cylinder and the frame.
Snub nose revolver
When the gang leader "El Lehendakari" (Basque for "The President", commonly in meaning of a leader of some group or organisation) (Jaume Valls) demostrates his guns to Paco and Betty, a snub nose revolver is seen. It is a 6-shot Smith & Wesson style gun. Among the Spanish produced revolvers, Ruby Extra or Llama Scorpio have a similar appearance.
For reference: Ruby Extra with 2.5" barrel - .38 Special
El Lehendakari puts the revolver on the table.
The revolver lies on the table.
During the robbery of the bank van, a revolver is seen in the security guard's holster. This is a large frame gun, supposedly with a 4" barrel. A number of Llama and Astra revolvers have a similar appearance.

patrolmen stop the van.

When El Lehendakari (Jaume Valls) acts under the disguise of a Guardia Civil motorcycle patrolman during the robbery of the bank van, he carries a compact pistol, supposedly a Llama I.

Star Model S
In the final scene Comandante Evaristo Torrecuadrada (Fernando Guillén) is armed with a Star Model S pistol. A similar pistol is used by Lt. Alcántara (Pedro Nieva Parola).

Paco (José Luis Manzano) holds a Star Model A Super in a flashback scene (a footage from the previous movie). A Star Model A Super is also used by Paco during the robbery of the jewelry store and during the final confrontation with his father.

Betty unfastens the holster from the belt of the patrolman.
In the climactic scene, the pistol in hands of Torrecuadrada (Fernando Guillén) switches from a compact Star Model S to a different, full size pistol due to a continuity error. Possibly this gun is a reused Star Model A Super or another large frame Star pistol.
Deadly wounded Torrecuadrada holds the gun. It is larger and looks somewhat different from the previously seen Star Model S.
The prison guards and the Guardia Civil personnel are armed with Star Z-62 or Star Z-70 submachine guns (or maybe a mix of both models).
