This film provides examples of: Neville Sinclair speaks perfect English during the whole movie — until he is exposed as a Nazi spy, after which he reverts to speaking in a German accent. Played straight with Cliff, a stunt pilot; implied as the backstory for Malcolm, allegedly a World War I ace, but now in his dotage. I can fly a shoebox if it had wings! He’s just a stunt pilot, but when he finds out his girlfriend is in trouble, he jumps into action without hesitation.
Cliff Secord between the comic book in which he was assisted by other pulp heroes and the movie which he actually saved other people, mostly by himself. Cliff and Peevy were a bit more grumpy jerks in the comics, as well as Cliff needing help to save the day. Lothar in the comic was more tragic, blaming Cliff for the death of the woman he loved. In the film, he’s a straight-up thug willfully working for Sinclair.

Jon Benjamin , codename: He is considered the world’s most dangerous secret agent. Though he shows proficiency in stereotypical spy skills—weapons, driving, martial arts—his primary interest in the job is the opportunity to enjoy a jet-setting lifestyle full of sex, alcohol, thrills, lacrosse, fast cars, designer clothing, and spy toys. Egotistical and self-serving, Archer generally lacks empathy towards anyone, though he is very quick to call out others for perceived bigotry.
He shares many of his mother’s flaws such as alcoholism, selfishness, impulsive behavior, and the stubborn refusal to listen to anyone. Flashback sequences show that his mother, between her career as an international spy and her social promiscuity, had very little time for Sterling in his youth. As such, Archer was primarily raised by his valet Woodhouse, toward whom he is abusive both verbally and physically.
He is almost always seen with an alcoholic drink. He insists that he has an incredibly high tolerance for alcohol yet is commonly seen in an inebriated state.

I was asking if you had any HD versions of the images from Naked Runner to review. I hope you don’t mind me posting the pics. I’m new here, not sure if I’m supposed to post your link or not. As for your observations, it does seem they used the upper receiver from the Naked Runner for the DL44 including barrel. How did you find out about the switching of the lower receiver if you don’t mind me asking? Did you do you still have contact with the production people?
The idea that it would make it easier to “break down ” is only applicable if the bull barrel actually came off. I have not seen the film. Did it come off in the film?

It has been continually updated for a while, its latest model being the 92A1. Beretta themselves later released a variant chambered in. The gun has had multiple claims to fame: It’s very common in film and television because many people think it looks cool, because it was and continues to be a common police service weapon worldwide, and because Beretta paid lots of money to make sure that many action movie heroes of the s carried one.
