Sniper - Bullet on a Stick, One Shot, Two Kills, and Cut Off Finger.
-Bullet on a Stick-When Tom Berringer and Billy Zane are being hunted by an enemy sniper, Berringer uses Zane as "Bait" for the sniper. He uses a knife dipping in the water to distract the sniper, and then follows through by shooting the sniper straight through the scope and into the eye. There is a shot from the scope's view of the bullet penetrating through the glass and then a view of blood shooting out of the guy's eye and back of the head. That is the scene I'm speaking of.
When the camera is at the scope view and you are watching the bullet come at you, it breaks the glass, and you can clearly see that the bullet is suspended by a rod or stick below it. You can see this clearly in normal speed, but can see it in better detail when on slow motion. -One Shot, Two Kills-
Also, towards the end of the movie when Berringer is captured, and the drug dealer cuts off his trigger finger with the twisting wire thing, He mouths the words "one shot, two kills", The drug dealer turns his head, and zane shoots and kills him, but misses Berringer. At the angle he shot from, he definately would have hit Berringer as well.
-Cut Off Finger-
At the final fight scene where Berringer and Zane are running towards the chopper and the enemy is chasing them, Berringer draws his firearm, and it shows a closeup of his hand holding the gun, and trying to pull the trigger with his middle finger, since his index and trigger finger had been cut off (in the movie). You can clearly see that he (or whoever is holding the firearm) is merely folding his index finger to simulate a bloody stub. You can clearly see that the second knuckle (the big one) is bending. When the drug dealer cut off his trigger finger, if you notice closely, he wrapped the twisty wire thingy below the second knuckle on his finger more towards his actual hand, but that shot clearly shows otherwise.

Actually, you're mistaken buddy, Berrenger's finger wasn't cut off - how the hell did you get that from the movie???! The ex-CIA guy used Garotte wire (What you called that "wire thingy") to BREAK his finger, not cut it off - usually you'd cut fingers off with a knife. That is why Berrenger tries to shoot with his middle finger - his trigger finger is BROKEN, not cut off. Do you actually think hollywood would allow for this big a slip-up?

Sasha you are correct, but as to whether Hollywood would allow such a mistake to remain - of course they would! You only have to look through the rest of this site to see that.

Actually, the finger is cut off. If you watch in the second move, Sniper 2, he just has a nub. Now, his finger "could" have been broken to the point that it had to be amputated, but still......
