My 2 cents: The cartridges seen in that opening sequence are being manufactured illegally, transported into a warzone illegally, and sold illegally. While I know next-to-nothing about arms or munitions, I think it makes sense that black market rounds would be thrown loose into a box to save time and get the transaction over as quickly as possible. It wouldn`t make sense for the factory to waste time and energy putting the rounds inside cardboard boxes of 20 as if they were going to be sold retail at Walmart.

Nor would a smuggler want the cartridges in metal cases or boxes commonly used for ammo, especially if they were labeled "7.62 MM, 440 ROUNDS." I would think a smuggler would prefer generic wooden boxes--much like the boxes seen here in the movie`s opening sequence. I can`t read Russian, unfortunately. But I think it`s a fair bet that the labels seen on the boxes read "AUTOMOTIVE PARTS" or "HAMMERS" or something similar.

"I`ve never seen ammo boxed up loose like that in my life."

True, Ammo is usually boxed rather carefully.

Reality is something you know very little about it seems.

tedgp-" because the gun and bullet were invented and are still made to kill people."

And knives were invented and are still made to kill people.
And planes were invented and are still made to kill people.
And ships were invented and are still made to kill people.

As long as some people are looking to kill others (for either offensive or defensive reasons), objects will be made to facilitate that.

Your point?

"You are right sir, this is a fictional movie"

Fictional, but still based on the real story of the arms dealer Viktor Bout. Wiki

@CrakrJak

You are right sir, this is a fictional movie, not a documentary on ammunition production.

@randomxnp the fetish, is because the gun and bullet were invented and are still made to kill people.

People try and justify it by saying that it is used to kill animals etc, but this holds no weight in reality.

Having worked in an ammunition factory, I can say for certain that the factory sequence isn`t correct. But the movie was excellent.

I started the movie disliking Yuri as a human being and by the end I still did not like him but felt bad for him...

Loved that movie. The only movie I think was made better by having Nick Cage in it.

Just watched that movie tonight, inspired by this post. It was one of the best movies I`ve seen this year. Superb. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, Crabes.

What is the fetish of the bullet? Rwanda was not the only massacre with blades. Look at evil people, not their tools.
