The Package is a 1989 thriller starring Gene Hackman as a US Army Special Forces sergeant who loses the prisoner he was transporting from Germany to the United States. He then discovers that the prisoner travelled under a false name and is actually part of a conspiracy involving high ranking officers in both the American and Russian military during top secret nuclear arms treaty negotiations. The film was directed by Andrew Davis (who would later direct Tommy Lee Jones in Under Siege and The Fugitive.)
The following weapons were used in the film The Package:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Several conspirators use the Beretta 92F in the film. Thomas Boyette (Tommy Lee Jones) is seen using a suppressed Beretta in the climax of the film. Also using the Beretta are Karl Richards (Ron Dean) and the conspirator who identified himself as Det. Ralph Burns (Juan Ramírez).
The conspirator who identified himself as Det. Ralph Burns (Juan Ramírez
) fires the Beretta in the diner shootout.
Karl Richards (Ron Dean
) pulls the Beretta.
The fake MP (Michael Skewes) driving the car at the end of the film pulls a suppressed Makarov PM pistol. Strangely, the gunshot sounds unsuppressed when he fires the weapon (possibly because even a suppressed shot sounds loud inside a car).

The MP driver (Michael Skewes
) at the end of the film pulls a suppressed Makarov PM
pistol. The barrel appears to be shorter and the trigger guard is bigger than a Walther.
Sergeant First Class Johnny Gallagher (Gene Hackman) carries an M1911A1 as his sidearm. He is seen with it holstered in Germany and pulls it in both the garage and diner shootouts. General Carlson (Joe Greco) and his bodyguards draw their M1911's at the beginning of the film after they are ambushed.
