Talk:The Democratic Terrorist
Carl always carries a boot knife around his right ankle, resembling a Gerber Mark I. He uses it several times in the movie, from mundane tasks like opening beer bottles to other tasks like slitting throats.
There are conflicting options. What do you guys think?
I know this is based on a novel, and I never read that novel, but this movie pretty much has the same plot as The Final Option. I don't know if it's deliberate or just a coincidence. Both feature seemingly disgraced agents (who train with elite units) tasked with infiltrating leftist movements which ends with a massive assault by the said elite units. --Funkychinaman 09:23, 18 June 2012 (CDT)
I really think Monica had a P230, not a PPK. The barrel is too long. --Funkychinaman 11:38, 13 July 2012 (CDT)
Well I don't agree but I won't reedo it again until I can find better screencaps --Thejoker
The barrel length is definitely too long for a PPK, but you may be onto something regarding the hammer. I'm going to split the difference. --Funkychinaman 12:40, 13 July 2012 (CDT)
Thanks for splitting the difference, but I still think its either a PPK or a PPK/S. Of course I could be wrong. --Thejoker
This was filmed in Europe. Since the PPK/S was only created to meet US legal standards, I don't know if they were ever sold in Europe. --Funkychinaman 13:13, 14 July 2012 (CDT)
It's definitely a P230. Look at the smooth curve running from the muzzle to the bottom of the trigger guard. It's not as straight of a curve on the PP. --Funkychinaman 13:13, 14 July 2012 (CDT)
I dont see the curve running from the muzzle to the triggerguard to be as smooth as that of a P230, but it bears a resemblance to the slightly three stepped curve of a PPK. It might just be the bad resolution and quallity of the picture though. And a PP is way to long to be that gun in the picture. You might be right about it being a SIG I can't just see it compleatly, sorry. I hope some of us can obtain better resolution screencaps so we can see the details, specially the slide serrations. And as I live in Sweden were the movie was partially made, produced and directed, I may have a better luck at finding it, so I'll see what I can do. --Thejoker
- Well, good luck then. I got the caps off of Netflix, and the entire film is available legally on Youtube, so I don't know if any company has any incentive to remaster it or create a hi-def version. --Funkychinaman 17:21, 14 July 2012 (CDT)
- And since you're looking, want to do pages on the two Carl Hamilton films that proceeded this one? The only Carl Hamilton movies that are available to me here in the US are this one and one starring Peter Stomare. (I intend to do that one later.) --Funkychinaman 02:07, 15 July 2012 (CDT)
Okey, yeah absolutly! I will rent the movies as soon as I can and screencap them.
- Sorry if I cant let it go but I still think Monika uses a Walther PPK and not a SIG-Sauer P230 during the bankrobbery. I've put my explanations and reasons of my thoughts under the images, and bear in mind that the movie is not in HD and that the details of the gun are less noticable because of the image quallity and blurr.
Hope I've made myself understandable, its hard to explain what I mean as I can't point out things with my fingers and have to wright my observations down instead. Thejoker (talk) 16:25, 11 December 2012 (EST)
- Here I have tried to point out the details of the bank robbery gun, that I think is a PPK, that I have spotted. I hope you can see them, it's the best I can do with what I have.
- You know, the easy thing to do would've been to simply point out the safety/decocker on the left side of the slide, but I guess you can't see it either. --Funkychinaman (talk) 00:14, 14 December 2012 (EST)
- I can't and couldn't see a safety/dekocker clearly, but if I watch closely on the picture above there might be an allusion to it there, but I can't be shure. So what do you say? Thejoker (talk) 19:48, 15 December 2012 (EST)
- Here is the details pointed out of the gun I'm sertain is a Walther P5 that she has at the end of the movie.
- I've done what I can to point out what I mean, I hope it's clear what I mean. Thejoker (talk) 20:43, 11 December 2012 (EST)
- I saw that someone had written what firearms were described in the novel of this movie (Talk:No Country for Old Men) so that you could compare the novels display of firearms to the movies, so I thought I could do the same, also I've only translated the exact text from the book to english and put it up instead of reformulate it because I thought some of the discriptions in the novel were vauge and not easy to reformulate, thats why it is written the way it is.
