    I remember, a few years ago, seeing an interesting clip from a movie on a late-night talk show. I was under the impression that the movie in question was "Pulp Fiction," but having finally seen "Pulp Fiction" for the first time earlier tonight, it did not contain the scene. I guess my mind was just playing tricks on me!

    Anyway, all I remember of the scene was a gun fight where two people shoot at each other simultaneously, and their bullets collide in mid-air. I remember an ineresting shot of the two bullets smashing into each other.

    I'm afraid that I don't remember what talk show this was on, or who the guest was, or any other details about the clip or the movie it's from. About the only clue I can give you is that I believe the movie is probably no older than about ten years, and no more recent than perhaps four or five.

    I know this is not much to go on, but if anyone can identify the film in question I'd be most appreciative!

    The first movie that comes to mind with a scene like that is The Shadow, with Alec Baldwin and John Lone.

    Face/Off did not have a bullet "colliding" in mid-air scene. Along with Andy, The Shadow is the only one I can remember.

    I think what Rex was talking about was the shot that Cage and Travolta take at their own images in a mirror. Without having seen it before in detail, you could conclude they hit in midair.

    That was what I thought of also when I saw the question, although The Shadow is the only verified bullet impact I've seen (I think). Just imagine the odds for a normal human being to accomplish that! Only the Shadow knows!

    The action masterpiece Full Contact, directed by Ringo Lam and starring Chow Yun-Fat, features a shootout near the end where two bullets collide in mid-air, and it looks really cool (they didnt use digital effects).

    Thanks for the responses, guys.

    It's definitely not "Face/Off," which is one of my favorite movies of the past few years.

    I haven't seen "The Shadow" or "Full Contact," though, so I will check them out and let you know.
