    It's not. But *was*. I'm not trying to pedantic. The pistol had a very unique look to a lot of people in the 80s and 90s, a time where most Western auto-loaders bore a resemblance to either a 1911, a Hi-Power, or Walther in some capacity or another, with Eastern ones resembling vaguely again Walthers or Tokarevs.

    Any semi-auto pistol that broke from convention generally got some distinction in film in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. You saw it with Sigs, the odd CZ, Auto-Mags, and eventually Glock. By the late 90s/2000s, Glocks, Sigs, Berettas, and 1911s seem to have won out in being go-to semi-autos of choice for Hollywood (for more than a few reasons)..

    For Hong Kong cinema it was because you had a big cool gun with a deep magazine for its time. Having a guy in full frame magdump 15 rounds looked cool as fuck.

    doesn't money just typically use whatever gun the military is using at the time? during the 1980 and 1990s the beretta was just adapted so it's the hot new thing.

    Balance of old and new. Not as old and with such an obsolete cartridge, but not as new as more modern handguns that still have some controversy in the minds of large parts of the more aged populace. It's a gun that can and still does bridge the gap of multiple generations in the way most any other gun cannot.

    It cycles blanks flawlessly and it is incredibly cheap compared to anything else remotely as big and intimidating. Plus if you want to make a small actor look bigger you give the big guy a 92 and the smaller one a Beretta Cheetah.
    And if you're John Travolta you make friends with the armorer who has five Beretta 93R mockup conversions and use it as your signature gun in half-a-dozen films

    aesthetic
    big, so it is easily picked up on camera
    popular through pop culture, even gun grabbers could probably recognize it
    used by the military for decades and some LEO departments
    probably just as iconic as the 1911 by now, and more pretty looking than a block of plastic

    it was the latest and greatest thing in the late 1980s and early 1990s when action movies still used technical effects instead of CGI, and now everything is greenscreen and gay.

    Also, the exposed/fixed barrel means it's really easy to cosmetically mod a Beretta. If you stick extra shit on a 1911 or a Hi-Power you have to tweak the springs or hide the slide, which breaks up the silhouette and makes the gun super-clunky looking.

      With a Beretta? As long as the slide weighs about the same and it's free to run, you can do all sorts of stupid shit to it. This applies to everything from a Bobcat to a Cheetah to the much more impressive 92s and 93s/mockups of 93s.

    >If you're a boomer, Beretta is still making whichever one you like, if you want a more modern pistol guess what, you can get it with rails, red dot cuts, better triggers, etc.
