The cultist priest is chased down and killed by Shepard and his DaChief Sergeant Powell (Richard Roundtree). Jimmy disposes of his fellow crooks by leading them to the nest and cheering as the bird eats them, then informs Shepard where to find the nest in exchange for a promise of immunity and one million dollars, tax free. A team of NYPD cops waits at the top of the Chrysler building, and when the bird-snake-god thing returns from a hunting flight, they shoot the thing to death in a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLOyp_7X7K0 surprisingly cool action sequence]]. Jimmy gets his one million dollars, tax free.

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu?: At the end of the movie the NYPD manage to kill Q, an Aztec God. Somewhat justified in that modern weapons such as sub machine guns didn't exist in the Aztec's time.

The two plot lines come together when Shepard figures out that an Aztec Cultist priest has been convincing victims to be somewhat willing human sacrifices as he prays the ancient Aztec god Quetzalcoatl back into existence. Quetzalcoatl appears in the form of a [[GiantFlyer enormous]] [[MixAndMatchCritters snake-bird thing with six limbs]], and nests in the top of the Chrysler building, flying out to snatch victims off of skyscrapers under construction, rooftop swimming pools, and snacking on the occasional skyscraper window-washer.
