I stepped throught the clip - here's my take:
1) TC knocks BG1's hand to the inside, knocking the gun out of BG1's hand.
2) TC takes BG1's hand back to the outside, opening up his target area for a double-tap from the hip
3) triple-tap to BG2
4) Picks up BG1's gun and stolen briefcase, followed by head-shot to BG1
So, from what I see, BG1 was disarmed, off-balance and totally unable to respond from the moment of the initial contact

seen the movie. don't remember the name. don't try to act out what you see on tv and/or the movies.

That's been my sig FOREVER, alas but it doesn't show up, just the address.
Cruise won the fight because that was in the script. Even the stupidest armed muggers will approach the chosen victim with weapons in hand. Cruise gets mugger A and mugger B simultaneously gets Cruise.
I like a good action movie and plan to see this one, but the shootout is in the same class as Jacky Chan's improbable stunts or Jamie Lee Curtis dropping an Uzi down the stairs and killing 10 terrorists.

A bit off topic:
Is Cruise pro-2nd Amendment?
