I hate you! I hate you!
Eva: Alright then, if you hate me so much then kill me. Come on...
Eva: You're a big girl now. Come on, kill me.
Eva: Oh my darling, I'm so delighted to see that you've got the killer instinct in you. Can you feel the excitement Alice? Can ...
When Alice fires her handgun (a semi-automatic) even tho shot in slow-motion, the slide doesn't move back. This is a simple identifiable function of this sort of weapon which is shot in slow-mo intentionally in many other films for it's dramatic effect. Instead, Alice jerks the weapon back as if it were fired, and the target is magically struck by a bullet that could not have come from Alice's gun.
