The Sentinel

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the movie, when Kim Basinger is in the bedroom and walking towards the mirror, the movements of her reflection do not match her movements. She stops moving and her reflection continues to move.

Factual error: When Garrison takes a phone call at the Mayflower, the person on the other end tells him to "walk 3 blocks east on Massachusetts Ave., take a left on 12th Street, Las Palmas coffee shop." The Mayflower is at Connecticut Ave. & L Street, about 6 blocks directly west of Massachusetts & 12th. Massachusetts Ave., which runs diagonally, does not form a logical route between the two locations.

Question: Is it really true that when you use a silencer the bullet slows down and is not as strong as if you did not use a silencer?

Jason Riley

Chosen answer: Sometimes. A suppressor, known commonly as a silencer, works by reducing the sound of firing by manipulating the escaping propellant gas, and sometimes by reducing the velocity of the bullet. It all depends on the type of suppressor that is used.
