I was watching RD last night and noticed something I hadn't noticed before...

SPOILERS
.
.

.
..
.


Right towards the end when Joe, Mr. White, and Nice Gay Eddie have their guns pointed at each other there is a serious hole in the plot that has me baffled:

Joe shoots Mr Orange, then Mr White shoots Joe, then Nice Guy Eddie shoots Mr White....BUT...NGE also gets shot! Well, wtf shot NGE? It couldn't of been Mr Pink cuz he was hiding under that ramp like a little bitch! Is this one of the beiggest Tarantino ****ups ever or what?

I believe if you look again Harvey Keitel's character (forgot the color) fires twice. He hits Joe and NGE.

Joe shoots Mr Orange, then Mr White shoots Joe, then Nice Guy Eddie shoots Mr White...Mr. White shoots Nice Guy Eddie.

Cant this be added to the Dvdtalk faq along with "when is Star Wars/Indiana Jones/Once Upon a time in america coming to dvd?"
Slow motion doesnt take much effort.

Wow, I'm surprised no one has EVER asked this before... it baffles the mind!

I once wondered this myself, but I played the scene over, and over, and over again until I saw the second shot.

(Like the ad for "American Beauty" stated: 'Look Closer')

I had to go through that scene almost frame by frame to figure out that Keitel shot two of em, but it is there.

I figured it out the 1st time I saw it...not to sound like I'm an arrogant bastard who thinks I am god...but when I would watch it with someone else for the 1st time...happens almost everytime...the person is like who shot NGE????? hahah I have to show it in slowmo to them...I didn't even think twice about it the first time I saw it...so this topic always makes me laugh.

Oh well, I'm glad someone finally addressed this issue here in the forums...it's such an "un-talked" about issue....hahahahaha

First time I saw it, it was just clear that Mr. White shot both Joe and NGE. It was actually my second viewing when I was like "whoa whoa what happened here?"

:lol: I actually forgot all about that thread and especially after watching the film I was baffled even more despite having already seen it like 8 times.

Still, no one answers the question in that other thread anyway.

It was a squib that went off too fast to be clear what happened added to the fact that Harvey never aims directly at the other actors. The commentary actually explains it.
