Tango & Cash

Plot hole: How did Rakeen get off the roof? He was still tied up when Tango and Cash left him there, and nobody would know that he was up there, so nobody would've gone up there to cut him loose. Still, he shows up at Perette's compound all the same.

Other mistake: Their big 4x4 at the end is really a two wheel drive. When they make the big jump with the fire all around them you can see the front end in the light. There is no front differential, just two big A frames.

Question: At the start, why does Tango empty his gun (of unused cartridges) and reload with different bullets before shooting the tanker? Unless I missed something, it's never explained.

Answer: He was doing a combat reload, where you eject all the rounds, spent or not and fill the revolver with new ones. It guarantees six shots, rather than relying on "indexing" where you count every round fired.

Answer: It's not specified, but I would suspect that he changed from a .38 Special to a .357 round or something. You can shoot a .38 Special out of a .357 Magnum gun and maybe for the movie they wanted to add a shot of him doing a reload to a higher power cartridge for the effect. Why anyone with a .357 Magnum gun would routinely carry a .38 Special round is beyond me.
