The Relic is a 1997 science fiction horror film directed by Peter Hyams and starring Tom Sizemore as Lt. Vincent D'Agosta, a Chicago police detective who together with evolutionary biologist Margo Green (Penelope Ann Miller) discover a deadly secret hidden in an ancient artifact sent to Chicago's Museum of Natural History.
The following weapons were used in the film The Relic:
Several Chicago police officers are seen carrying the Beretta 92FS as their sidearm including Lt. Vincent D'Agosta (Tom Sizemore) and Officers Bailey (Tico Wells) and McNally (John Kapelos), as well as museum security chief Tom Parkinson (Thomas Ryan).
Remington 870 Police Standard
Heckler & Koch HK94A3 (mocked-up as MP5A3)
After the museum is sealed following the Kothoga attack on the gala, Chicago HBT officers attempt to breach the museum, armed with what appear at first to be Heckler & Koch MP5A3 submachine guns. They are never seen using the weapons to fire upon the creature. Close examination suggests that weapons seen in the film are actually the partially-converted HK94A3 carbines seen often in action movies during the 1980s and 1990s.
Vincent D'Agosta (Tom Sizemore) carries a bullet (which looks like a 9mm) around as a good-luck charm throughout the film. During the latter half of the film, he tells an anecdote that explains how he became so superstitious. While patrolling during his rookie year, he noticed a man who'd locked himself out of his car, and went over to help him out, when the man - an armed robber - turned around with a pistol and shot at D'Agosta at point-blank range, yet the weapon misfired. Later, the police lab examined the bullet and told him it was flawless and there was no reason - other than "plain, old fashioned good luck" - why it didn't fire.
