However, when the Mafioso kingpin goes missing for real, it is the SFX man who is collared for his murder. Mason and DeFranco try to leave the house when a helicopter arrives, but DeFranco is shocked by a rigged metal screen door, disrupting his pacemaker. Mandel accepted the job because he wanted to dispel the perception that he was a "soft, arty director". It Works Better with Bullets: When the first movie's Big Bad brandishes a pistol at Rollie, Rollie shows him the bullets he took from the gun and the superglue he put on the gun's handle, gluing the useless gun to the villain's hands.

Staged Shooting: What Rollie is hired for in the first movie, based on the success of one he helped execute for a movie. Where F/X floats above the crowd are in its performances; in the perfection of Miroslav Ondricek's photography, Mel Bourne's production design, John Stears' effects and Terry Rawlings' crisp, succinct editing; in the virtually unpredictable twists and turns of its plot, and in the sheer joy of watching a hero use his skill and his wits to solve a problem.

Bringing the near impossible to life took skill and imagination, now with CGI anything is possible, so some of the reality has been lost. In the struggle for Lipton's gun, the driver is killed and the car crashes, allowing Rollie to escape.
