So even if CIA douche kept blanks in his gun to intimidate prisoners his gun would still recoil and eject the casing. Nolan really needs to work on this. If he is going to have guns in his movies and have them up close they need to operate like guns do realistically. You know the aspect he strives for in his films.
I made a similar observation about the Wall Street hold-up in that a lot of the shots fired in that scene are just the henchmen flailing their arms in the air and mimicking gunshot recoil. I thought it was cringeworthy almost. But if it's for a safer alternative in dealing with so many extras or something, then no problems, but whatever.
