It's probably my favourite film of the last couple of years. I liked all the reloading stuff, I don't feel it disrupted the rythmn, or whatever it is that film-makers are worrying about happening if they were to go for more realistic shoot-out sequences. Aside from adding to the gritty realism quotient it also added to the suspense, IMO. I believe that this flick's stature will grow over the years - I think it's been somewhat underrated. Loved the acting, too, especially Del Torrio & old warhorse Caan.
