Molotov Cocktail

Mars fashions some Molotov Cocktails to burn the house down. He also uses them to ignite several FBI SWAT members and finally himself.

Mars throws a Molotov at Tally's police van.
Mars lets a Molotov slip from his hand to ignite himself along with the house.


--Kcollie 02:40, 10 August 2008 (UTC)I stand corrected. Thanks for the clearer shots of the Kimber Gunmaster.

--User:AdAstra2009 The fake FBI SWAT guy who gets shot in the head by Mars, what gun did he have, I think it was a G36c but i'm not sure or have the resources to look at it again.

He had an M4A1 but he didn't stay still enough for me to grab a screenshot. -GM


I made this before I learned how to chop the bars. Sorry. -GM

Thanks to Alienqueen11 for chopping off the widescreen bars, the page looks much nicer now. -GM


The hostagetakers seem to have guns that would not normaly be used by a criminals-S&Wshooter 21:30, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Welcome to the World of Extremely cliche bad action movies, Smith.-Oliveira 22:05, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
At least they didn't show petty criminals using MP5's-S&Wshooter 22:24, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Hey man, Die Hard had criminals using MP5s and the movie wasn't bad. But Hans Gruber and his thugs obviously aren't petty criminals though.-Oliveira 22:57, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

In the book that this film is based off, the DVD contained evidence against a crime boss whose influence spread across the West Coast, and he must have some people in the FBI on his payroll, which would explain how the crooks got their hands on that high end weaponry and FBI equipment. -500Magnum

Tell me Why Mars, a bad ass, carried a Nickle plated sissy pistol?

My understand is that petty criminals use weapons that are available, as most handguns on the street are taken from home or guun stor robberies. Are these relative cheap handguns not sold in stores or own-able by residents?--Jackie.45Cal 22:12, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Why is Bruce using his right hand in this?

As we know (from viewing various pages on here) Bruce Willis is left handed. But in this film he uses his right hand when using his guns. Does anyone know why? Seems a bit odd that they would make him be right handed in the film. --cool-breeze 11:59, 12 April 2011 (CDT)

He's possibly ambidextrous, but mainly uses his left hand. Kornflakes89 23:31, 13 April 2011 (CDT)

I'm not sure, if you look at how he shoots the shotgun at the water thing it looks rather awkward. And every other film he uses his left, what made this one so special that he used his right? --cool-breeze 02:29, 15 April 2011 (CDT)

How does that look awkward? All he's doing is firing the shotgun from the hip. Ever seen Sin City? He was right handed in that film as well. Maybe the character in the book this movie is based off of was right handed, and like Sin City, Bruce wanted to be as authentic as possible. Kornflakes89 21:51, 16 April 2011 (CDT)

In the film the way he pumps the shotgun always looked rather awkward to me. And I've read the book if they wanted to keep it authentic to the book then they might have actually kept close to the story in the book as they made a ton of deviations that actually hurt the film because the situations and characters are so much better in the book. --cool-breeze 03:33, 18 April 2011 (CDT)

You haven't seen many movies that were based on books have you? There's ALWAYS going to be some minor and or major changes when going from page to film.Kornflakes89 22:27, 18 April 2012 (CDT)

Yes I have, but I was merely pointing out if they wanted to keep it more authentic to the book they could have kept the storyline more in line with the book. --cool-breeze 04:34, 19 April 2012 (CDT)
