Corrected entry: When Tony is shooting at Boris and he just won't die, Tony fires a total of 8 shots, the last one being Tony actually aiming down the sights. Desert Eagle magazines only hold 7 rounds.

Correction: Tony is a blagger who actually has a .44 Magnum, rather than a .50AE. You can see from close up shots that it has a teardrop shape safety, which means it's a Mk1 which was never chambered in 50. A .44 mag holds 8 rounds and a .357 holds 9. The really ugly "Desert Eagle .50" font on the gun is also non standard. So I reckon he has a .44 magnum that just has "desert eagle .50" written on the side. He consistently fires 8 rounds before reloading. How Avi fires about 11 shots with it in the "look in the dog" scene is a different matter.

Correction: Unless he put one in the chamber. Then there would be 7 in the magazine too, making it 8 rounds total.


Continuity mistake: When Sol, Vinnie and Tyrone are stopped at the fuel station the dog in the back is wearing a studded collar in one scene and in the next scene where Tyrone crashes the car the dog is wearing a chain collar.

Turkish: It turns out the sweet talking, tattoo sporting pikey was a gypsy bare knuckle boxing champion. Which makes him harder than a coffin nail.

Trivia: Brad Pitt almost turned down the role of Mickey O'Neil in this movie as director Guy Ritchie informed him that he would be playing a boxer, and feared being typecast as he had already played the same role in Fight Club (1999). Pitt took up the role anyway, as he desperately wanted to work with Ritchie.

Question: Turkish is always going on about ''Ze German's''. Is he referring to the War?

Answer: Basically, yes. He says it once when he discovers Tommy is carrying a handgun, which are not at all common in England, where they are outlawed. More the kind of thing a Brit would expect from a war-hungry Nazi. Later on he refers to it again just to mess with Tommy.
