Default Favorite movie shootouts?

Personally I like the bank robbery scene in "Heat" and the shootout in the beginning of "The devils rejects". What are your favorites?

I would say "Heat" as well. Best scene in the world.
Since that one is stated, I'll have to say a close second is "Boondock Saints" between the three and 'El Duce' (the dad with 6 guns)

The beach scene in Apocalypse Now, especially on the DVD when Capt. Willard steals Col. Kilgore's surfboard.

You can't beat Heat for the bank scene.

Ronin also had some pretty good ones.

The whole movie We We're Soldiers was all one big shootout.

Probably "Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses". Ted Nugent stands over a guy discharging two Tech-9s into the air and just showering the bad guy with spent brass. A god-like display of power.

Hard Boiled, just for the sheer variety and volume.

Thank God - I was about to come unglued on the fact that a movie list of SHOOT OUTS that DIDN'T include a John Woo movie. THANK YOU BENNING!

Hard Boiled definitely

Heat bank scene definitely

Black Hawk Down - Pretty much the whole Ridley Scott masterpiece. However, when Shugart and Gordan go in.....

The Crow - When Brandon Lee utters the words "You're ALL going to die"

Tears of the Sun - When they demonstrate the "Australian Peel" towards the end of the movie.

Last Man Standing - The girl recovery scene

JD

A poetry reciting emo in your favorite gun scene? I weep for the future.
