"El Hombre de la Ametralladora"

 

"The Machine-gun Man"....Some great 100-round drum Thompson action in Mexico!

 

Complete with gangsters, girls, guns, old bubble-cab Bell helicopters and VW vans...Phil

You'd think a movie translated to 'The Man of the Machinegun' (Machinegun Man) would have more firearms action in the trailer.  What stood out to me was when he struck the guy's face with the barrel of the Thompson instead of the buttstock.  I could see that approach not only leaving a permanent scar but highly likely to tear off a chunk of flesh (especially if that front sight caught onto anything whether cheek, chin, nose, ear or neck - ouch).

 

Thanks for sharing.
