Taxi (2004)

Taxi is the 2004 American remake of the 1998 Luc Besson-written film of the same name and was directed by Tim Story. The film stars Jimmy Fallon as an NYPD officer whose driver's license has been suspended and must depend on a streetwise taxi driver (Queen Latifah) to help him catch a crew of beautiful bank robbers. The film co-stars Christian Kane, Gisele Bündchen and Jennifer Esposito, the latter of whom would appear as a different character in the 2014 NBC television adaptation.



The following weapons were used in the film Taxi (2004):


Glock 17

The Glock 17 is the standard sidearm carried by Andrew 'Andy' Washburn (Jimmy Fallon), Lt. Marta Robbins (Jennifer Esposito), and most of the New York City Police in the film. There is a Scene where he fired 9 shots at the robbers, note that he only fired 9 shots while the Glock 17 mostly hold 17 rounds. Note that the slide is locked back, after 9 shots.
