Most of the small weapons used during the shooting scene did not exist at that time, the movie is settled e. g. a Colt 38 Special Police Service weapon (on markets after the turn of the century) several Magnum Type revolvers (S & W .357 Magnum) which did not exist before the 1960ies. Very special are Guererros revolvers, which were simply fantasy weapons: a three barrel Colt Dragoon front, mounted on a Le Mat rear end with the Le Mat 9 shoot cylinder. See more »
While it is nice to see Mickey Rourke in any role and Danny Trejo has become Legend (one way or another) with Machete, this movie is not really great. It does have some really good costumes though and the set design is good too (I can't imagine them having a lot of money to spend, so it must be from another set or shoot ... no pun intended).
Action scenes are OK, the story not complicated, it's more or less what you'd expect from a movie like this. Dina Meyer has not really that much to do and she is the female lead in this. The angle on the good versus bad thing is not that bad, because it's not really a good guy doing the work here. Though obviously it doesn't really make that much sense (the "Deal" that is). But you shouldn't start thinking with movies like these
