|Kill the "Jackal"|
Kill the "Jackal" (Russian: Убить "Шакала"; Ubit "Shakala") is the 1991 Soviet detective movie loosely based on Agatha Christie's novel Murder on the Orient Express (the first part is very close, but the second part is completely different from the original novel). An armed gang led by a mysterious crime boss, named the Jackal, robs a jewelry shop and kills a couple militiamen (Soviet policeman). A few days later, an unsolved murder is committed in the train Simferopol-Kiev. Militian detective Nikolay Alekseevich Petrov (Evgeniy Zharikov) soon realizes the relation between these two crimes, but any of the other passengers may be the Jackal.
The following weapons were used in the film Kill the "Jackal" (Ubit "Shakala"):
