Blu Ray update coming

I have this movie on Blu Ray now, so expect an update of all the screencaps soon (possibly even tonight). -MT2008 22:36, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Alright, about to start uploading now. -MT2008 01:44, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

non gun

Why is the non gun used in the school shooting scene not listed? MoviePropMaster2008 16:04, 1 May 2011 (CDT)

There isn't any Non Gun used in the school shooting. If you are talking about the pistol that Denzel uses to drop the terrorist, that's a real SIG 226 firing blanks. -MT2008 16:20, 1 May 2011 (CDT)


HRT

Is there any reason why the tactical FBI agents are specifically identified as being from HRT? They way they're kitted out and the fact they were immediately availiable for the search warrant would suggest they're simply FBI New York Field Office SWAT agents and not from Quantico.

Remington 870 section - last screencap

The mag tube and pump grip don't look right for an 870. I think this might actually be a Mossberg 500 Cruiser. StanTheMan (talk) 17:11, 9 December 2014 (EST)

101st Airborne soldiers

Siege-92F-1.jpg

Something I've never understood about this movie - this film clearly did not have Department of Defense support (since the military are essentially the bad guys in this film). Yet all of the soldiers who occupy New York City are said to be 101st Airborne, and are portrayed as such (the soldier in the picture above is clearly wearing a "Screaming Eagles" patch on his Battle Dress Uniform). If this film had received DoD support and used actual 101st soldiers during filming, one would expect the use of the 101st insignia to be authorized, but since that's not the case here, isn't the portrayal illegal under Title 10 (Code 772) - specifically, part (f)?

Alas, I've seen other examples of anti-military movies which depict actual active-duty military units using their actual insignia, so perhaps this law isn't being enforced. (Another example that comes to mind is King Kong Lives, where the soldiers are clearly supposed to be 82nd Airborne - they wear the maroon berets and "AA" patches on their BDUs). -MT2008 (talk) 09:36, 20 May 2018 (EDT)

Eh, I concur it seems kinda loosey-goosey how they enforce all that at best. There's been plenty of other films with military/government personnel using actual insignia that weren't officially supported for whatever reason - mostly because they were shown as some kind of villain or antagonist, but not always. That said, there's other insignias shown in the movie as well, not just the 101st. StanTheMan (talk) 11:59, 20 May 2018 (EDT)
