For those who like movie trivia:
"Last Man Standing" is an updated remake of "Fistful of Dollars" - which in turn was a remake of a Japanese film "Yojimbo"(?).

(Thinking about it now, "Yojimbo" sounds like something a New Jersey guy would shout out to a buddy named Jim.)

Great movie! Thanks for the reminder that even if his acting skills are not always the best, that it is enjoyable watching Bruce in action-type films! BTW, it looks like Bruce had some mad point-shooting skills! :D

Never saw the movie, and my first thought after viewing the clip was "What the hell just happened?" Two 1911s with bottomless magazines, a guy with a Thompson on the stairs, not ten feet from our Hero, can't even nick him, another guy shucks two rounds through a shotgun not 15 feet from Bruce, and again no hits. He's inside, firing away like a madman, *blink* he's outside firing like a madman, *blink* he's inside again, etc., etc. :blink:

/Stoopid Hollywood.

Let's be fair, here.
I watched the movie last night and in the final big shootout, Willis' character can be seen dropping empty magazines - several times.
Of course, since he continues shooting right after that, you must take it on faith that he replaced them with full mags.

Are you sure you haven't seen this movie? You seem to know an awful lot about it. (Cheesey grin ~ :D)
