The MP5k and the Beretta PM-12S that the 'Replacements' use fire continuously for long periods (or in bursts many, many times). An MP5 will empty its 30-round magazine in 2.3 seconds on full-automatic fire.

In the beginning of the film, Meg has a tribal tattoo on her arm (a band), which promptly disappears shortly thereafter.

Q
What are the differences between the theatrical version and the unrated Extended Cut?
A
Years after the release of the first DVD of The Replacement Killers, Sony came up with a so-called unrated Extended Cut of this movie and of course is there a question whether this version is worth the double-dip or not. First of all this new cut of the film is approximately 8 minutes longer than the well-known version. The Extended Cut features some more pieces of story line but no new action sequences, at all. A detailed comparison between both versions can be found here.
