Also, in Heat, there's a bad scene. When the crazy murderous dude escapes De Niro who was about to stuff him in the trunk. De Niro has him on the ground, but because of a passing police car, keeps his eyes off him for five seconds. Well, no way IRL. Obviously the crazy murderer on the ground could/should have been armed and De Niro would never let him 5 seconds free to regroup and draw his gun, police car or not. Parker would have prioritised the man on the ground and let his friends worry about the cruising car.
Yeah, that scene in Heat requires suspension of disbelief to enjoy it. I mean...the guy is right under him. How the hell is he going to get away?
