Factual error: When Phillips is aboard the lifeboat, Najee has a pistol pointed at him at one point. The pistol is a 1911, and the hammer is forward when pointed at his head. Najee then fires it, but the hammer was forward the entire time until he fires the pistol. The 1911 is a single action handgun, and will only fire when the hammer is back.Matdan97
