8mm

Velvet finds out that the lawyer was pocketing $1million from the old man and shoots the lawyer with the crossbow. With his dying breath the lawyer shoots Velvet in the neck, and he dies too. While all this is happening, Nick Cage gets his gun and puts a bullet into the magazine, but the Machine and Gandolfini hear him and try to go for him. Cage beats Gandolfini so his gun goes under the lawyer’s car. While he’s getting it, the Machine attacks Cage, so Cage slashes his stomach with one of the S&M knives. He shoots the cuffs and runs away. Gandolfini chases him, but he gets away. He calls the old lady and tells her that the film is real and arranges an appointment. He goes and finds Gandolfini (who is at the place where they killed the girl). He tells Cage about it. Cage gets sick (as in disgusted) and kills Gandolfini with his bare hands. He turns up for the appointment but the old woman killed herself and left an envelope to him and the girl’s mother. Cage leaves and finds the Machine by calling hospitals and asking if there are any patients with abdominal wounds. Finds Machine. They fight. Cage kills him in a graveyard. Goes home…happily ever after.

Continuity mistake: When Nick Cage picks his daughter up to stop her crying at the beginning of the movie, he rests her head on his right shoulder. But when he turns around to tell his wife that he loves her, her head is now resting on his left shoulder. (00:06:10)

Question: How, exactly, does Max die? When Machine rips the tape off his mouth, does he fall forward onto a blade of some type?

Answer: Machine first rips off the tape then slits his throat with a knife he had hidden. If you put the movie in slow play, you will see what I mean.
