Neil (Robert DeNiro) was on his way to freedom with his 'girlfriend' Eady (Amy Brenneman) (whom he was really only using for companionship anyway). However, he gets a call on his cell phone from Nate (Jon Voight), who informs him that they've found the location of Waingro (Kevin Gage), the former member of his team that ruined the bank robbery (and escaped at the beginning of the movie) and betrayed them by helping Van Zant (William Fichtner) and killing Trejo (Danny Trejo). At first, Neil doesn't care about this, but after he hangs up and continues on his route to freedom, he can't get Waingro off his mind, so he decides to make a detour to the hotel and take care of him. However, this gives Vincent (Al Pacino) time to track him down, and they meet face-to-face as Neil is about to drive away. In his panic, Neil makes a run for it (leaving Eady abandoned in the car) and the two men have a shoot out near an airport runway. In Neil's haste, when he emerges to shoot Vincent, Vincent manages to spot his moving shadow and quickly turns to shoot him first. Neil then admits that Vincent was the better man and salutes him with a handshake, before slowly passing away.

Mistakes

When Neil (De Niro) breaks into Van Zant's apartment and shoots him, watch as Van Zandt flies backward. You can see a wire running up through the bottom of his sweat pants.

Trivia

The final shoot-out scene at the airport with DeNiro and Pacino running across runways, avoiding being run over by jets, and winding up in the brush is an homage to the final scenes in 1968's 'Bullitt'.
