The screenshots are from a Netflix show called Taken. The side view of this radio looks to me like a Baofeng UV-5R. Is my guess correct, or is it impossible to identify from these angles?

I’m pretty certain that the antenna is a Nagoya.

It definitely looks like some type of Baofeng or TYT brand radio due to the setup of the left side of the radio.

It's so sad seeing CCR on TV shows. I miss the good old days of HT1000s and MTS2000s. And some cop shows with an XTS or may APX

Nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it (...or just use google for 5mins !!) :)
Pretty sure it's a Helida CP-UV2000: check out the form factor, red button on the side, antenna position and form factor, and screen size.
As they're dirt cheap, but 'look the part', it's likely to be the first thing the props dept went for.
