The Crazies is the 2010 remake of the 1973 George A. Romero film of the same name, directed by Breck Eisner
. The plot of the remake once again, revolves around a small town that is accidentally infected with a biological weapon with the code-name "Trixie", which either kills its victims or turns them into rage-induced infected individuals (similar to the Rage-infected victims from the film 28 Days Later), and the efforts of both the surviving townsfolk attempting to survive and stay alive, and the efforts of the United States military to isolate the threat and eliminate it. However, in this film, the location of the small town has been changed from Evans City, Pennsylvania, to the fictional town of Ogden Marsh, Iowa, and the general focus of the plot revolving more around the surviving townsfolk and not so much on the military's quarantine efforts. Nevertheless, the film received much positive reception and was a better financial success compared to its predecessor. The film's cast includes Timothy Olyphant, Danielle Panabaker, and Radha Mitchell.
The following weapons were used in the film The Crazies:
Sheriff Dutten (Timothy Olyphant) carries a Glock 19 as his sidearm. He is seen using it against Rory Hamill in the film's opening and later on when he is searching the town's morgue.
Glock 19 (3rd Generation) - 9x19mm

Smith & Wesson Model 27
Sheriff Dutten (Timothy Olyphant) retrieves a Smith & Wesson Model 27 with a 3.5" barrel from a lockbox in his desk after the military confiscates his Glock and other weapons at the station. He loads it with .38 Special cartridges as seen on the headstamp. The backstory of the weapon reveals that David's father was the former sheriff of the town, and the Smith & Wesson Model 27 was his duty revolver.

Unknown Smith & Wesson semi-automatic
Jesse draws an unknown Smith & Wesson semi-automatic pistol on Sheriff Dutten at the truck stop. The pistol is not seen clearly enough to identify, but it appears to be a third generation Smith & Wesson semi-automatic because of its distinctive 4" barrel, slide, grips and trigger guard. The pistol has a round trigger guard and no decocker-safety combination on the slide. It's entirely plausible that it is a Smith & Wesson 5946. There also appears to be an object by the grips, so it could also be a 5926 with a frame mounted decocker, but it could just be a glare from the slide release.

Colt M4A1 carbine
The Colt M4A1 Carbine can be seen in the hands of various U.S. soldiers, usually with 4x ACOG scopes and flashlights. At one point in the movie a soldier aims down the scope but a red flash is emitted like it was a laser sight.
