With the exception of war movies, what are the best movie shootout scenes?
I know, I know, HEAT is good but aside from that what else? I thought the Miami Vice shootout scene was great. I'm working on editing a compilation video and would like the hive's opinion. Thanks.

3:27 into this video for you rap haters out there.

if you expect an answer other than heat you are retarded.

There may have been lots of bullets flying in The Kingdom, but I didn't find it very realistic or tactically sound.

I like the scene where Rambo walks up to that guy who's firing at him with an AK-47, and shoots him with an exploding arrow from 6 feet. Then he runs down the hill with his rescued hostage, and about 30 guys come up over the ridge and begin shooting at him all at once. He just picks up his M-60, and one single sweep and they all go down. Then he takes off in the helicoptor, shoots the bad guy down, and proceeds to blow up world landmarks. That was badass!

there were some awesome shootouts in the most recent Rambo. at one point I think a child actually gets thrown into an open fire during a shootout. good times.

Way of the Gun FTW!

Relaods, malfunctions, clearing drills, and real reloads!

There's this movie called "Heat", you guys probably never heard of it. Anyway, there's a pretty good shootout scene in that one.

Yeah, WOTG had some great shooting but I was never able to reconcile how such complete fuck-ups in everything they tried to do were suddenly tactical masters in gun handling. Life rarely delivers such narrow skill-sets but I guess movies do. Gun-savants FTW!

Carlito's Way had a good one. Starts at 2:20 goes until just after he leaves the bathroom. Explicit language warning.

The shootout in Open Range is one of the more interesting & fun to watch shootouts I've seen on a movie.

ETA:

Some of the gunplay in Crank was fun to watch as well.

All the movies in the series are filled with epic shootouts.

Agreed.
Michael Mann usually gives you a much better shootout, and I was disappointed.

Great shootout, took me by surprise.
I was expecting the typical Hollywood tough talking before the shootout, but...
Costner's character knew how to start a fight.

That was an incredibly good movie, but I still can't find a source for those hi-cap revolvers.

I have the same predicament with finding a shotgun round that will throw a man into a barn.

The way of the Gun. Most real to life I've seen. Malfunctions, reloading..... had it all. For a bunch of Losers they had impressive firearms skills.

The general idea was that they were former military; SEAL's like the director's brother, who helped with the gun scenes. Being good at that job, and not much else, and after leaving (or getting thrown out of) the military, was how they ended up being losers.

Definitely a great movie for shootouts. I picked up the DVD used at FYE for $6.

Collateral is definitely another top shootout movie. Say what you like about Tom Cruise, but he paid attention to the guy Mann brought in to familiarize him with pistols. It's also, like Heat, a good movie in its own rights. Like Ebert said, the first ten minutes or so are almost their own movie, and a very good one. Jamie Foxx is an exceptional actor, and Jada Pinkett Smith holds her own with him.

I know I'm forgetting quite a few other movies.

Oh yeah, that was a classic.

Very few men see it, since it follows an hour and a half of liberal nonsense and Meg Ryan bitching, but if you fast forward through that crap, you will see a genuinely awesome display. Youtube has bits and pieces of it up, but all of them are too cut up to be watchable. The closing credits sequence is also quite beautiful, with aerial footage of some city in Ecuador set to Van Morrison.

I should also mention Stargate: SG-1. At least, back when the Air Force was seriously interested in helping out with the technical stuff. Sure, it's silly sci-fi, but Amanda Tapping was way too comfortable with her P-90 to be left out.

True Romance and the Professional had some great shoot-outs.

Good shootout for a western, but yeah, revolvers with more than a dozen shots and those sort of things kinda ruined it for me...still was suspenseful...
