Game, The - Not Shooting with Blanks
Near the end of the movie, on the rooftop, Christine clearly states that there was always a safety net in place, so the game was never dangerous. As examples, she says that there was a diver ready if the main character couldn't escape from the taxi in time, and that the mysterious gunmen were only shooting them with blanks.
The gunmen fire these "blanks" during the scene at Christine's apartment, and the car chase directly after it. During the apartment scene, the gunmen shoot several holes in the wall and shatter various breakable objects in the building. During the car chase, they shoot and damage at least one car window. The last time I checked, you needed real bullets for these things. Some safety net.

This is questionable. They never say when and where they were shooting blanks or if they were all shooting blanks all the time. Also, the movie makers might expect you to "suspend disbelief" and imagine that the creators of the Game in the film have planned all this out and even rigged things to be destroyed. Just like real movie magic when they rig a room with lots of tiny explosives to simulate real gunfire. If you think about it, even the part where the original slip-up poster thinks they are shooting real bullets couldn't possibly be real. Its ALL movie magic only in this case you're supposed to think it is part of the movie plot rather than legitimate special effects.
