Striking Distance

Jimmy is the serial killer. After the chase at the beginning of the movie, where Tom's (Bruce Willis) father dies, Tom's uncle (Jimmy's father) discovers that Jimmy is the killer and lets him go. Jimmy's father accidentally killed Tom's father when Tom's father was going to kill Jimmy. The family members meet at a cabin and Jimmy's father shoots Jimmy but he's wearing a vest. Jimmy kills his father and runs away. Tom catches up, they fight, Tom gains the upper hand and kills Jimmy with a taser.

Factual error: During the car chase at the beginning, they are chasing a car on Bigelow Blvd., less than a mile from downtown Pittsburgh and we see a big, brick hill they chase down. This hill is actually in Duquesne, PA more than ten miles south east of Pittsburgh. Then as you're watching they are still in the same area as Bigelow Blvd., in the Polish Hill section of Pittsburgh.

Question: Tom Hardy puts his shotgun shells in his mouth before swimming from his patrol boat to the larger boat. Why is this?

Answer: Because they'd be completely useless if he allowed them to get soaked by the water.

But his head comes out of the water. So the shells got wet anyway.
