Best Movie Shoot Outs?

Discussion in 'Films, Music and All Things Artsy' started by Rocketeer, Jun 29, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Some of the films are crap and have implausible plots but the ' action sequences' rock and are worth the DVD rental just to fast forward to the point where guns are drawn..

    Here's my top ten in no particular order:

    Heat - Al Pacino and Robert de Niro.. the bank heist sequence
    Terminator - Arnold taking on the L.A. Police in their own stationhouse
    The Matrix - Neo/ Trinity go to rescue whatshisname Fishburne in the building
    Scarface - Pacino again
    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - finale in Bolivia
    The Wild Bunch - the Peckinpaw bloodfest where all the ' heroes' die
    Way of the Gun - Ryan Phillipe and Benicio Del Toro - who'd a thunk?
    El-Mariachi/Desperado - Rodrigues before he got all ' artsy '
    Mr. and Mrs. Smith
    Hard Boiled - Woo rates a Woo Hoo for this Chow Yun Fat ' epic '

    and, I'm over my ' 10 ' limit but I've got to include Hot Fuzz. when the cops take on the ' Town Council/BIA ' its as good as any ' serious' flick anyday..

    others worth wasting time on?
  2. Certain segments of Ronin?
  3. I second all of those esp. The Terminator, Matrix, Heat and Scarface

    Also, Robocop - The Drug factory
  4. Love Honour and Obey in Jewson's car park.


    (Fix bayonets!) :)

  6. Went to see "Wanted" a few days ago - cracking film. Shoot-outs galore and very enjoyable in a "that's all a load of old curving bullet b0llocks" kind of way.
  7. Spooky old thing, but Andy McNab advised on the Heat shootout.

    The coppers were asked what they would do in that instance, and the reply was 'we'd be fcuked'.

    Edited for mong hands :oops:
  8. The shoot out in Grosse Point Blank is fantastic.
  9. Gotta be the last stand in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid!!!!!

  10. No particular order

    Muriachi - Opening Bar and the Guitar case brothers :)
    Mr and Mrs Smith , the People carrier scene and the end
    Smokin' Aces - "Bring it" awesome . Some teenage ******* "re-interpretation" of a scene that didn't need interfering with. Watch the original.
    Navy Seals - First extraction (tuned silencers) and the 'Beirut' F+M. The HALO is a thing of beauty too
    The replacement killers -Chow yon fat
    Kung Fu Hustle - Good bits all over the shop , not just guns
    An Ungentlemanly Act - "It's fookin' jammed man" and the Kitchen shootout. Proper SLR thumping.
    Stalingrad - The Tractor Factory battle
    Blackhawk Down - Most of it

    Most ridiculous shoot out ever? The Sons of Katie Elder, the Saloon gunfight. 6 shooters that appear to be mag fed.
  11. Not a full on shootout, but, The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly, last scene in the cemetery.

    spike7451 RIP

    I gather that the LAPD & FBI now use the footage & McNabs commentry as training aids.
  13. How very dare you all not mention the genius that was Hot Fuzz! Swans, scale-replica-village-chin-impaling, shopping trolleys through butcher's counters, firing two guns whilst jumping through the air - this film has it all.
  14. Any of the good bits of LEON.
  15. Proof of life rescue, especially the LEATHERMAN throat cutting!
