Screen Surgery & Film First Aid #002: Shooter

Screen Surgery & Film First Aid #002: Shooter

Last time we were looking at Shooter, ex-Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger (Mark Wahlberg) had been shot whilst being framed for an attempted assassination. He stole an FBI car, escaped, and raided the first aid kit for QuikClot, which helped staunch his wounds. That’s where we now pick things up.

Swagger goes to a regular convenience store and buys a few provisions: sugar, salt, bottled water, some big-arse needles, Biros, rubber tubing of some description, an icing injector. He holes up in some crappy garage somewhere, and starts making himself a DIY drip…

First, the sugar and salt go into one of the water bottles:

A little shake…

Next he tightly inserts the tubing into the mouth of the bottle…

…Sterilises a big-arse needle with a lighter…

…Which is then stuck into the other end of the tubing, and inserted into his arm, with the bottle positioned above him. Voilà! Homemade drip! (Can’t for the life of me figure out what the icing injector was for – maybe he planned on baking cakes if it all panned out okay?)

Disclaimer: If you choose to rig this shit up yourself – having followed the instructions on some random blog, half-remembered from a crappy Hollywood movie – and give yourself an embolism or septicæmia or some other nastiness, then it’s your own fault, moron. No liability accepted, except for thinning out the gene pool to the benefit of the rest of us.
