Question: I have so many questions. Sorry 1. At the end of the film, Winston only meets with John to tell him he is excommunicated from all underground services and that it takes place in one hour. If he is just excommunicated but the contract is still open, why didn't the assassins who were already in the park just kill him right then and there? 2. How did John get to Rome and get out? Sounds stupid, I know, but we never see a plane or anything. Plus the head of the Roman Continental just shows him to an elevator. 3. I know that the men were transporting cell phone chips through birds, but why? 4. When John is given the Kimber 1911 from the Bowery King, he cocks it 3 times. The first when there's no mag, the second when the mag is inserted, and then again. Why did he cock it 3 times? Wouldn't that have wasted a bullet? 5. At the end of the film... All the people who were looking at John as he ran by them. Where they assassins or just standbyers in the park just watching by? 6. After Santino was killed in the lounge of the New York Continental, why didn't the guards deal with him (kick him out or kill him) as the guards of the Roman Continental were prepared to do when Cassian and John crashed through the window? 7. Can someone understand the high table, Santino taking the seat at the high table, what he plans to do with his new seat at the high table (I remember the King and John talking about it before giving him a gun), and why they doubled the Santino's bounty?
Question: Near the ending, when the kids fly very close to the sun, how were they able to survive its super-intense heat?
Question: A "war" started when McCluskey and Sollozzo were killed at the diner. Wouldn't the murder of the heads of the other families cause another war that would leave the Corleones outnumbered 4 to 1?
Question: This question and answer may contain spoilers. The film made it seem like once the mutant children cross the Canadian border, they would be safe. Dr. Rice (I believe it was him) even says they (the Reavers) need to hurry or they'll lose the children if they cross. My question is why? Did I miss something? Who was suppose to meet the children in Canada? Or is Dr. Rice saying they can't follow the children into Canada, and if so, why not? Alkali Lake was in Canada and it doesn't seem they have any regards for laws and borders. And surely if the children were that valuable, or the need to destroy them so important, why would Dr. Rice not send his army of Reavers to battle whoever was helping the children?Bishop73
Question: When Lois brings in the newspaper and says "look at this" Peter grabs it from her and says "movable printed type. We must hide this from the serfs lest they gain literacy and threaten the landed gentry." "What have you got there my lord?" "Nothing, go back to your turnips." What's the meaning behind this joke?Christopher Burke
Question: When Alex Kintner (the boy on the raft) gets eaten by the shark, I distinctly remember a shot right after the shark rolls over the raft, that the inflatable raft pops with a loud "POP", then there were two streams of blood coming out of the water almost 5 feet in the air, in a V-type pattern. Nobody remembers it. Nobody knows. It was only in the cinema in its original release. It's never made it to any re-release or home video media version or TV broadcast. This scene was forever etched in my memory because I knew the shark had punctured the boy's back and severed the two arteries/veins that are as thick as garden hoses. Please somebody, does anyone remember this scene?
Question: If the police had tech teams (as shown in Saw II), then why didn't the tech teams locate the nerve gas house/bathroom via the security cameras that Zep was using to observe Adam and Lawrence in the latter's house? The brief shootout between Zep and Tapp didn't destroy the computers and monitors, and Zep didn't disable or shut them down before leaving, either.
Question: Maybe I blinked, or maybe they cut a scene. How did Kong get tangled up in chains while he was fighting the big one?
