CGI gun flashes

I would venture that most of those are not CGI gun flashes. For years the Japanese have used their own version of 'flash paper' non-guns. They usually have that weird 'magenta/pink' hue in their flashes. They also generate a lot of smoke (for a so called smokeless powder firearm) which also resembles the U.S. Flashpaper Non-guns. They look weird and unless they are obvious CGI, chances are that they are just the typical flashpaper weird flashes that actually fire from the guns themselves.

In this case I can guarantee you that most of them are CGI. I couldn't get many good shots of the muzzle flashes, but many of them don't match up with the barrel, and in many cases the actors aren't even pulling the trigger (the whole movie is one great big screw up). I also recognize those Lugers (both are fairly well known airsoft replicas) and the smoke coming from them is very, very slight; not nearly enough for a flash paper gun, but it's about the amount of residual gas you get from a propane/134a airsoft pistol. However, I'm pretty sure the MP5s are flashpaper guns. They seem to fire from an open bolt configuration, and you can see the "bullets" in the magazine through the ejection port. I'm also assuming that the P230 is a firing replica since we actually see the magazine (although I'm guessing that they shoved fake bullets into the magazine for that shot instead of its normal blank ammo).--PistolJunkie 12:01, 16 September 2011 (CDT)

Many years ago I spoke with the armorer for a Japanese film called "The Returner" who explained to me they used souped up/modified "Plug Fire Cap Guns" in that movie. They are toys that replicate the function of a real firearm, including brass shells that contain a small pyro cap. I bought a few of them from a fellow in japan after that conversation and depending on the company that made it, they can be a lot of fun. I never got them to run reliably enough to use in a film. A buddy used mine in a short film though. The MP-5 is probably a plug fire cap gun, which I think is what MPM2008 is talking about. Nice job on the page! --James3 15:37, 16 September 2011 (CDT)

I don't suppose you'd know anyone who might know who makes that MP5? I tried searching for a match, but I oculdn't seem to find one. It's strange enough that you'd think it be fairly easy to find. And I'm glad you approve of the page; this movie was rather painful to sit through (almost as painful as Pluto Nash), let alone screencap (although I did cheat a little bit; I forgot to screencap the L96, but since the opening theme sequence is the same exact sequence used in the OVA, I just jacked the section from there). The inclusion of the animated segment was the worst of it because it just served to remind me "hey, there's an OVA that's a thousand times better than this that you could be watching instead!"--PistolJunkie 16:16, 16 September 2011 (CDT)
