Media Lab Recreates Heat Shootout

In this week’s Media Lab from NRA Freestyle, the guys take on the famous shootout in Heat.  Specifically, they look at movement, communication and suppression fire in a way that was employed in the movie.

A lot of people believe the movie scene was done in a fairly realistic manner.  What did Media Lab discover?  Watch the video.  Oh, and if  you’ve never seen it before, get Heat on Amazon for less than $6.
