Responding to diddy's comment, I think it’s a mistake to hold that belief. It may appear to be the case in a Marxist (Leninist?) "look to who will benefit" sort of way, but I think it ignores:

I would imagine it would depend on the munition. I think the point, though, is that having been fired it was subjected to forces that may make it behave in unpredictable ways (whereas before firing,...

I'm 100% with you. It's inconsistent. It's not just bad science, it's bad science-fiction. But it sure is fun and the characters are likable, so I look the other way.

Fun movie, but I'm still kind of bummed they didnít have half the characters disappear suddenly. Unless it happened in the after credits (which I refuse to stick around for).
