In "The Phantom", I saw a lot of bullets producing Sparks when hitting trees. I thought that was cool as hell.

Actually possible, in a fashion. It's much the same concept as what happens when a fast moving vehicle, such as a fighter jet, leads another fast moving vehicle, such as another fighter jet. Not EXACTLY the same thing, but very close. But that last scene with Jolie? Yeah... God bless Hollywood, because the teachers of America seriously neglected screenwriters
but a person can reproduce this "bullet bending" effect in a way if they can move near the speed of sound. In a circle, not a chance.
Not to mention the natural arc of a projectile. For instance, a .30-06 has a drop of anywhere between 20 and 35 feet at 1000 yards, depending on load and rifle specs. Which means, you can stand dead in front of someone shooting at a 1000 yard target, at half that range or so, and theoretically be perfectly safe, because they would actually be shooting OVER you to let the bullet "fall" onto it's beaten zone (which hopefully includes the x-ring). But if you try it and get your melon popped, don't go telling folks I told you it was okay. (That means stay behind the firing line, regardless).
