Real Crime - - Minute By Minute -


One of Holmes’s neigh­bours, ir­ri­tated by loud mu­sic blast­ing from his apart­ment, goes to his door and threat­ens to call the po­lice. Holmes isn’t there, and the neigh­bour wisely de­cides not to open the door. If she had she could have trig­gered dozens of bombs.


The film be­gins. Holmes is al­ready inside with the rest of the au­di­ence. He can still back out, drive home and leave the au­di­ence to en­joy an or­di­nary movie night, but chooses not to. From now on he’s committed to his care­fully planned crime.


Holmes leaves the cinema, sup­pos­edly go­ing out­side to use his mo­bile phone. He’s ac­tu­ally gear­ing up, putting on his bul­let­proof gear and ready­ing his weapons. He then re­turns to the cinema.


Holmes waits un­til a noisy ac­tion scene be­gins. While the cinema’s loud­speak­ers blast out the sound of blank bul­lets, he’s about to start fir­ing dozens of real ones. Toss­ing two gas grenades into the cinema, he fires into the ceil­ing. Holmes then emp­ties all six car­tridges from his shot­gun into the au­di­ence. Holmes switches to his semi- au­to­matic ri­fle and continues fir­ing.
