It was difficult for me to absorb everything in the first viewing of Smokin' Aces (2006), so, I had to watch it couple more times. But each time, this scene in particular surprised me.
The scene where a lady contract killer (Alicia Keys) is cornered in an elevator when Police/agents are approaching and she signals her friend who is in another building at least a kilometer away holding a sniper rifle, to take care of the guys approaching her.
When she signaled, the sniper starts blazing and immediately couple of agents go down. Now, to my utter disbelief, the Police starts shooting randomly at the building without even knowing the snipers exact location.
I thought, didn't it occur to the writers, if the police starts firing back randomly, the civilians would get hurt?
Maybe this question sounds trivial because it's a movie but I would like to know, how the Police in real life would handle the situation? Would they have reacted the same way as in the movie or was that a bit too inaccurate a depiction of police work?
