Boomerang (original French title Comme un boomerang ("Like a boomerang"); original Italian title Il figlio del gangster ("Son of a gangster") is a 1976 French-Italian crime drama directed by José Giovanni and starring Alain Delon as Jacques Batkin. When Batkin's teenage son Eddy, being under the influence of drugs, accidentally kills a policeman, Jacques tries to act according to the law. But when the press reveals that Jacques is a former gangster, he has to act in style of his dark past.

The following weapons were used in the film Boomerang (Comme un boomerang):

Luger P08

During the attack on police van, transporting convicts, Jacques Batkin's pistol switches from Colt Model 1903/1908 to a Luger P08 (it can be a continuity error, or Batkin could take a Luger from one of his accomplices). Several other gangsters also use Lugers.
