Tom Cruise Alley Scene in Collateral is Actually Used in Tactical Handgun Training

While movies are often dramatized to the extent that you’ll never, ever see some of the stuff performed in movies in real life, on occasion a movie can perform a scene so well that real life implications can actually follow.  Whether it’s a new car we want to create, a new weapon that comes to light, or even a particular technique we’ve never seen before, movies can be an inspiration for real world scenarios.

Here’s something I found out today.  There’s a scene in the movie Collateral where Tom Cruise is being held up in an alley.   He is approached by a couple of thugs who have a gun pointed at him.   Cruise then uses his signature double tap to the chest and one in the head move.  The whole draw and punch takes 1.3 seconds.  It was so impressive that this very scene is now used in lessons in tactical handgun training.  Not bad Mr. Cruise.

By the way, I’m pretty sure that Tom Cruise looks cooler in the movie Collateral than in any other movie he’s ever been in.  I’m pretty sure it’s the white hair but I felt that needed to be said.   Also it’s interesting that his name is Vincent.  That’s the same name he has in The Color of Money.  Did Vincent quit being a pool player to become an assassin?

Anyway, here’s the scene below:
