      Moss was a Vietnam vet. They had sensors back then which would pick up vibrations around the camp. He should be aware that there might be something of some sorts when this much money is at stake.

                Given the availability of radio technology, how hard can it be to develop a transponder as seen in the movie? It's a rather rudimentary device. If radios and TVs and walkie-talkies had long been long in existence, there's no reason devices like that couldn't exist. I'm not an engineer, I'm a dumbass just like yourself, but come on now. Device picks up signal, device goes beep.

        Vets are moronic grunts sent to the meat grinder who survived, often without even seeing combat. They learn to clean their guns and to keep generally fit to the lowest possible standard. You don't even need to know how to read to be sent to die.

        Why exactly do you think some redneck from an old ass war would have had expertise with bleeding edge technology at the time?

        Any corner out of view of the open door, best spot would probably bave been the furthest corner adjacent to the door.

        Room clearing is nigh impossible for people who aren't trained amd even then training is evilcing. Even if you have the best modern training it's still unlikely you survive bursting into a room with an armed and determined occupant.

        The time it would take for Chigurh to swivel his head and weapon onto Moss would have been more than ample for Moss to aim and fire on an unsuspecting Chigurh.

          >Even if you have the best modern training it's still unlikely you survive bursting into a room with an armed and determined occupant
          This is why during house-to-house / room-to-room clearing in WW2 (In the both the Pacific and the Eastern Front) everyone just sort of universally developed the method of simply spraying the outside of the building/room with fire, tossing in a nade, and calling it a day. When you have to clear a half dozen rooms or buildings every day for months/years on end you stop caring about civilian casualties and just kill anything alive in the building BEFORE going through the door.

          Also I used to live next to an office building that leased to the local PD for a few weeks every year for SWAT training. The SWAT guys ALWAYS just toss 2-3 flashbangs in each room before attempting to go in for the same reason.

        Literally just behind the bed. Have the gun ready on the bed and shoot either through the door when he knocks the lock out or at him when he comes in. Chigurh wouldn't even have time to raise his gun if Moss just shot through the door the moment the lock was blown off.

            Moss missed because when Anton blew the lock off he hear it hit something before smacking the ground. So Anton moved out of the way of the door because he knew someone was in the way, possibly with a gun, waiting.

        The Counselor is a great film, one of my faves, script is perfect, Scott's direction is competent, his direction could be better but that's ok. Critics panned it and normies hated it but who gives a frick about that. Critics panned it for weird political reasons, normies hated it because normies gonna norm. It's a dialogue-heavy film and witty, erudite dialogue at that, not to the point of it sounding too mannered, but it certainly went ovet the head of most viewers. Also it makes zero concessions to political correctness, the dialogue is full of lines that would offend limpwristed libs. And the ending is bleak as all hell which I guess displeases normies.

      Neither would most of the people criticising his actions, like the moron in the OP. He's only acting like this because of hindsight bias and because he's a viewer of the film and not a participant of the events.

        even then Lewellyn acknowledges that it's stupid but he's a moral person, and the point of the film is that just because you act in a morally correct way doesn't mean the universe will reward you for it, the world is cruel and random and doing the right thing morally isn't always the right thing to do. if he never took the water to the Mexican they never would have gotten on his tail in the first place and the tracker wouldn't have done shit, if he didn't let his wife bring her mother the cartel members never would have known he's in el Passo, if he went with that pool bawd back to her room to cheat on his wife the Mexicans wouldn't have found him in his hotel room and killed him

        He did literally nothing wrong apart from going back to give the Mexican water, and even that's understandable considering Llewellyn was just some guy and felt guilty about leaving him to die out in the desert. He didn't know about the tracker, he was in the middle of nowhere, and there was no fricking reason to think "Oh man, what if I'm hunted down by a guy with a bad haircut?" He didn't go around spending money, he didn't brag about it, didn't tell anyone but his wife, etc. If it weren't for the tracker (unavoidable) and the Mexican (stupid, but understandable), he woulda been home free.

    Can't believe no-one has yet mentioned the optimal solution: bury the money. Moss has the time advantage, he knows the terrain, he can bury it under some tree somewhere a hike or drive away and come back a year later when the heat has died down. Transponder aside the likeliest way he'll get caught is when he starts spending the money.
    Also he would have accidentally neutralised the transponder by burying it (probably)

    i agree that both the movie's and the book's biggest fault is him going back, never bought that. unless he was prince mishkin (who was autistic).

      The 'changing money from the original container to another' is more so others won't recognize you easier. Like if someone involved was asking around the town and someone happened to have saw you hauling around a black case for example. It's common sense amongst thieves, the smart ones at least.

      This is true, and it’s really annoying. There’s no value in assessing whether or not a characters actions are 100% logical, because most human’s don’t act 100% logically. People do stupid, ill-advised shit constantly, and even more so when put into stressful or unusual situations. Going back to the desert with water was really stupid, but it’s also easy to imagine that a dumb hick might let his conscience get the better of him there.

        It's not about plot holes, it's about how the characters are written. The writing is bad if your character has to do one stupid thing after the other for the plot to work.

      Mr. Cowboy was of course supposed to know that the money he found had a tracking device in it, and that a deranged hitman would be hunting him down for it from day one.

    If he literally just counted the money and not drove home instantly he would've been fine. If I ever found a suitcase full of money in the aftermath of a shoot out, not sure what I would do. Discounting any witnesses or possibilities of cameras, I'd probably take the cash itself and drive 2 states away to bury it under a rock and wait 6 months before I came back to retrieve it but that's probably the best I'd do being a paranoid schizo. If they could magically track my phone I guess it would be game over. I probably wouldn't investigate the scene of a shootout in the middle of a desert I think I'd just walk away and tell the police that I found it.

          The only thing on that rack that's actually a radio is the bit at the top with the control panel and antenna. The box attached to it is the battery, and the one below that (with the handset and plugs going into it) is an encryption/decryption device.

          Also military radios at that time were low freq high power, so that they could more easily transmit over longer ranges. They absolutely had smaller high freq radios but they tended to be for pilots or smaller field units like LRRPs or Recon teams. Pic related is an high freq emergency radio from that same time period.

        I meant drive to some empty lot and just count it out. Besides he was literally wandering around with still living Mexicans dying in front of him, taking 2 minutes to just flip through the money and bag wouldn't be that crazy even if he did it at the place he found it at.

    Everything made more sense in the book and I'm pretty sure he checked the money and possibly even moved it to another bag. The water thing is predated by long internal monologue and throughout the story the main character feels more like a hick way in over his head than a badly written typical action hero.

    >doesn't immediately check the money to make sure it's not bugged or at least move it to a different bag

    It's set in 1980. It wouldn't have immediately occurred to somebody that a drug cartel would be using that kind of technology. He did eventually figure it out.

    >goes back pointlessly to bring water to an already dead mexican making it even easier to track him down

    Because he felt guilty he abandoned a dying man. He knows it's stupid and even says so but he has a conscience.

    >panics in the hotel room instead of hunkering down and getting a clean shot off on Chigurh

    He had no idea how many guys were out in the hallway. They could also shoot through the door just as easily as he did -- in which case he has a bed to protect himself. He could get in a gunfight while pinned in a room with no cover with whoever was out there and wait for the cops to arrive, or he could try to escape with the money.

    >fricks up again immediately afterwards with the crashed car trap

    The point is Chigurh is a competent opponent and knows to follow the blood trail and even then Chigurh only just escapes getting murked.

    >doesn't try to hunt down wounded Chigurh

    Because Moss himself was wounded to the point of becoming incapacitated and also needed to avoid the fricking cops.

    >becomes complacent in the end and dies to a bunch of mexicans

    Which is also the point, he relaxes too much because the woman flirts with him and because he thinks the cartel can't track him easily after losing the transponder.

    OP is a massive homosexual who thinks he's a smart, competent tough guy and wouldn't have died immediately in this situation.

    And how is Moss supposed to know that, living in his trailer? He is just a guy that's kinda good at shooting and survival, he's not a nerd ordering Scientific American every month.

    I wouldn't have suspected a tracker but a dye packet. Those were around since the 1930s.
