Thin Red Line - Sweet Jesus, halfway through that piece of crap I was looking for a rifle to wipe the rest of those guys out just to end MY suffering....

Yeah tell me about it. A great waste of WWII replicas, uniforms and special effects.

Unforgiven - William Munny's battle with Lil Bill and his posse in Greeley's Saloon at the end. Awesome.

Default Most All of the above AND

The Wild Geese - battle scene in the African village near the end.

The Wild Bunch - undoubtedly the best western shootout ever.

Steve McQueen in The Getaway. He made that pump 12 gauge talk in the hotel shootout!

Tears of The Sun - just "wow." I think they actually listened to their trainers / consultants. Take some of the Hollywood movie cliche crap out, and they were actually pretty tactical.

As mentioned, in Last Man Standing when he goes for the girl and then when he goes to the hotel. "Everybody gets dead sometime." WOW. Even with 4 pistols he still reloaded!

The Matrix lobby scene is a classic.

Have to agree with The Crow - the shootout scene in the bad guy's lair is intense.

And one of my favorites - the final shootout in Equilibrium, just before the big sword fight finale! ajust when you think the bad guys have him trapped, telling him they captured him without incident. He very calmly says, "No. Not without incident." Full auto Beretta's from each sleeve in a "gun kata" assault on the bad guys' guards! Thoughtful sci fi with great action and more suspense than you would expect.

Default About the Thin Red Line...

I wish the Studio would take the MULTIPLE hours of footage shot and make a new GOOD movie from it! The director got so carried away with nature and philosophy, he forgot the damn story he was supposed to tell! I have read that he scrapped much of the plot line, and literally HOURS of film ( whole characters and scenes were cut out!).

Whoever owns the rights, I'm begging you, FIX the movie and rerelease it in theaters! The actors were fine, the cinematography and props excellent. Now just put the real movie scenes back in and take out the nature crap.

+1 on the Wild Bunch. Sam Peckinpah’s slo-mo shoot-outs are classic.

Really, take it from an ole' fart and escape all the cg stuff and the animation with the 1080di wtf and watch this 1969 movie.

You will like it, the cane said so!

48 Hours - Lobby scene where Nolte and 2 other officers roll up. Pretty intense.

Just thought about it, the scene near the end of The Kingdom, when the one guy gets abducted and the rest of the FBI team goes in after him.
And Mr. and Mrs. Smith, the end scene when they are fighting against everyone else. I just liked it because of the choreography, the way they 'worked together' looked really smooth.
