Faster is a 2010 American action thriller film starring Dwayne Johnson as an ex-convict who sets out to avenge the death of his brother (Matt Gerald) after they were double-crossed during a heist ten years ago. During his campaign of revenge, he's tracked by a veteran cop (Billy Bob Thornton) and an egocentric hitman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen).
The following weapons were used in the film Faster:
WARNING! MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!
Killer (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) uses a 3rd Generation Glock 21 with a custom carbon fiber pattern on the frame (and also an extended slide release) as his sidearm for a good portion of the film. While the director of the film referred to the pistol as a "Glock Model 22" in an interview, the weapon is in fact a Glock 21, as evidenced when Killer is seen loading the magazine with .45 ACP ammunition. The Glock 21 from this film was later used in Savages and in Season 2 of Ray Donovan.

Rubber prop model of Glock 21 used in the film - .45 ACP. Note the prop is molded from a 2nd Gen model, unlike the 3rd Gen used for live fire.
Killer's Glock 21 laid out. Note custom frame pattern.
Note the large bore diameter.
In the alternate ending, Killer loads and brass checks his Glock 21. These are clearly .45 ACP rounds, confirming identity of the pistol as a Glock 21.
Killer fires the last shot in his Glock 21 in the alternate ending. Note the slide returns to full battery.
The Glock 21 then magically locks empty, as film guns tend to do when it's most unfortunate.
Cop (Billy Bob Thornton) carries a 2nd Generation Glock 22 as his sidearm. In an interview with the director, he describes it as "Glock Model 20", perhaps confusing it with Killer's weapon, which is in fact a Glock 21. The Glock 22 in this film was one of the guns originally bought for U.S. Marshals.

Heckler & Koch USP
A full size two-tone Heckler & Koch USP (caliber unknown) is seen in Killer's (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) armory, being taken by his girlfriend, Lily (Maggie Grace). Killer is later seen cleaning this same USP.

Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan
Driver (Dwayne Johnson) uses a 2.5" barrel Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan as his sidearm throughout the film. The unfluted cylinder indicates that it is chambered for the .454 Casull cartridge or the .480 Ruger cartridge. However the .480 Ruger model has been discontinued, and shots in the film confirm it is loaded with .454 Casull rounds.
