Beyond Borders is a 2003 drama starring Angelina Jolie and Clive Owen and directed by Martin Campbell (Goldeneye, Casino Royale). Filmed in Canada, Namibia and Thailand, Borders was commended by relief organizations for bringing attention to the plight of refugees and the efforts of relief workers, but it was not a critical or commercial success.

The following weapons were used in the film Beyond Borders:



TT-33 Tokarev Pistol

Colonel Gao (Burt Kwouk) threatens Nick with a Tokarev TT-33. Ma Sok (Teerawat Mulvilai) does the same thing later on.

These Type 56's retain the bracket for attaching the spike bayonets, but not the bayonets themselves.

The flaw in Ma Sok's plan, other than handing a live grenade to an infant, is that he STAYED IN THE ROOM.
