Ok , everybody what is your favorite movie shoot out? Could it be the ending of "Scarface" when Tony Montana takes on everyone with his M-16/M-203? Or possibly in Predator , after Jesse gets taken out and everybody comes up on line and lets her rip? What about in the part in "Aliens" when the space marines are "Getting our asses kicked"(Bill Paxton) and Michal Bien pulls out his trusty 12 gauge and "Vasquez" says"LETS ROCK!!!" (yes, lets). My personal favorite is in Terminator 1 when AHNULD takes on the police station with his AR-180 and 12 gauge SPAS. Nothing against LE , they were all just actors anyway. So what says you guy's?Take care.Coondog

The "Lobby" scene in The Matrix.

There isn't anything better. If you disagree, then you must work to free your mind.

1. Bank Robbery scene in Heat.

2. Opening scene in Star Wars.

3. Beach Landing in Saving Private Ryan

4. The part in Black Hawk Down where they are pinned down by the .50 cal, and Ewan McGreggor runs out when the .50 jams and blasts 'em with the grenade launcher.

my favorite is from naked gun 2 1/2 when two guys are shooting from behind barrels at each other. Teh camera shows each guy shooting then ducking behind his barrel, the camera pans out and it's the same barrel. I loved that one.

You gotta love the way of the gun scenes in terms of tactical cover and fields of fire, etc.....

But, my alltime favorite gunfight scene has to be......

toss up between the usual suspects when they raid the boat and (surprise) ronin (any of them) and heat (not the big one, but the exchange at the drive in.)

Beat me to it.

There are a lot of cool shootouts in the trilogy (but that one is the best). How about Morpheus unloading that FA Glock at the Psycho Twins? Sweet.

There is no lobby. It is your mind that forms a room!


PS: I would only say that the shootout in Heat is more realistic. Nobody can do the Matrix dance in real life. So I would vote for Heat just for reality sake.

The foley guys goof -up in that scene. One of the bad guys "fires" his rifle, but there is no sound to go with the recoil.

Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne) in "True Grit" where he say's "Fill your hands you son of a bitch". It doesn't get much better than that, especially if you are a John Wayne fan.

The final shootout in The Way of the Gun. I find it a little more realistic than Heat due to the reloads. Oh, and Heat of course.

The one in Open Range was pretty good, too. Except for the part where Kevin Costner fans out about 10 rounds from a sixgun at some dude. I've heard of artistic license but even a democrat would know that was BS. Definately a good scene and a good movie though-

3) The final assault in "Saving Private Ryan" where the SS use the 20mm FLAK in an antipersonel app (Made me covet one of those to this day).

1. Platoon when Charlie Sheen and his partner get out of the fox hole running torward the enemy shooting everything in sight. He then screams, "It's fucking beautiful!"

2. Heat bank robbery.

3. We Were Soldiers. Just about every firefight scene.

Shughart and Gordon at the scene of the Six-One crash.

To me, seeing a realistic dramatization of what two REAL LIVE men ACTUALLY did in the face of overwhelming odds is just mindboggling. I can't believe the US can produce men like that, to willingly go to their deaths for a complete stranger, just so no one could ever say 'they let us down'.

I wish some of the anime series like Cowboy Bebop or Trigun would come out into a form that most of you would accept here. When it comes to action, they dominate ANYTHING you will see in an actual movie.
Cowboy Bebop has a sequence where a guy with a Katana (hes good with it too) is fighting the main character who is using a Jericho 941 in an old cathedral. He uses the steel frame of the pistol to deflect the swings of the sword until its knocked from his hand, and hes (Spike) knocked back onto the ground by it. He grabs it and puts it to the chest of the guy with the sword at the exact moment Vicious is about the thrust the sword through him. Ends really interesting, by Spike surviving a 4-5 story fall from the top of the cathedral, and Vicious somehow surviving a handgrenade that Spike dropped at his feet as he was thrown from the building.


The other is a final fight between Vash and Knives in Trigun. They end up point blank to each other with these unique double action revovlers to each others face. Niether had their hammer back, and both of them are holding their pistol in one hand, and the others cyclinder in the other. Nither can fire because niether of them can rotate the cyclinder on their pistol. There is a release lever for their pistol (it opens like the old webly revovlers, it has a pivot for the cyclinder and barrel assembly infront of hte trigger guard) both of them release the others pistol causing it to open and eject all the empty shells, and their last live round into the air. They both grab the one live round, cram it in the cyclinder, close the action, grab the others free hand, and swing the pistols back at each other in a blink of an eye, without saying a word. From there its basically a game of based on who put the round closest to the firing sequence.
