    IMO That was about the only scene worth watching in Collateral... but your little animation leaves out the final shot on the first BG, which would not have been justifiable.

    Cool!
    Deflect / re-direct, draw, double tap BG#1 from side retention position, two the body one to the head of BG #2. Fast, clean.
    Really good that BG#2 was slow on the draw and then couldn't get his weapon into play. Didn't see BG#1's gun fire, as it probably would have if his finger was on the trigger, but shooter would have been clear. Maybe.

    I was wondering about the coup-de-gras! I could feel it.....

    its hard to see in that clip but did the first BG drop his weapon, it looked like cruise just hit is arm away and the guy just started backing up. none the less i think thats pretty efficient, but would take a lot of practice to pull off in the streets with ones nerves going crazy

    Um, wasn't Cruise's character an assassin? I don't think "justifiable" would be a concern.

    I'm kind of worn out with TC, but I have to give him credit, he always goes all the way to make things realistic. Notice how his right hand drops down for the draw just a hair before his left comes around to deflect. The only thing he could maybe have done more was to sidestep to the left as he deflects/draws.

    True, but although this clip shows tactics that are generally sound and well executed (no pun intended), too many people have talked about this scene as if it were the final word on how to handle a 2 on 1 situation - coup-de-gras included.

    The 2 guys' tactics obviously sucked. If they had approached with guns in hand, logical for the initiators of the action, the movie would have ended there.

    Well I think that guy was still a possible threat...didn't you see his foot move...a little?



    Stay armed...stop the threat, completely...stay safe!
