    Favorite gun-toting actor in movie for me was Steve McQueen in 'The Getaway.' Another was Charles Bronson in 'Hard Times' - in that New Orleans saloon shoot up.

    Also, the MacManus brothers in Boondock Saints would probably be my favorites.

    Now you will recieve us! We do not ask for your poor or your hungry. We do not want your tired and sick. It is your corrupt we claim! It is your evil that will be sought by us. With every breath we shall hunt them down. Each day we will spill their blood, 'till it rains down from the skies! Do not kill, do not rape, do not steal. These are principles which every man of every faith can embrace! These are not polite suggestions. These are codes of behavior and those of you that ignore them will pay the dearest cost! There are varying degrees of evil. We urge you lesser forms of filth, not to push the bounds and cross over, into true corruption, into our domain. For if you do, one day you will look behind you and you will see we three and on that day YOU WILL REAP IT! And will send you to whatever god you wish.

    God I love that movie.

    I woud have to say Clint in nearly any movie I've seen him in. Alhtough Timothy Olyphant in Justified is pretty darn good.

    same. he is just such a terrible actor. flat affect and plays the same character in every movie he has been in. you only need to see one john wayne movie to see all of them. i honestly have no idea why or how he became popular.

    pee-wee herman has more acting depth than john wayne

    Although the best scene is when Mac mows down the forest with it.

    One of my favorite quotes:
    " The only thing you can guess about a broken down old man is that he is a survivor. "

    When I watch movies with firearms I always look at their training and how they handle the weapons.

    See if they sweep other actors' heads or backs as they move throughout the scenes. Do they shoot a weapon dry and continue to pull the trigger?

    Do they handle the weapon with a sense of familiarity or are they running around with their index finger high on the slide next to the ejection port because that is all they remember from their 30 seconds of training prior to the scene?

    As such I really enjoyed Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

    The interaction between Pitt and Jolie when they were going through the Home Depot knockoff store. If you watch, as Pitt crosses the aisle in front of Jolie, she lowers her weapon so as not to sweep Pitt's back, then comes back on target.

    Her weapons' training on Tomb Raider was some of the most fun on the movie set according to interviews and clearly shows.

    Plus she's just smoking hot in that black dress. :cool:

    You sound like a pee wee type of guy there. :mad:
    John Wayne did more for the moral of our military and was a true patriot. He filmed "Green Beret" here at Ft Benning. I was working at a local tv station after getting out of the Navy and wanted to meet him. The film crew did come down to our station but The Duke was not in town so didn't get to meet him.
    John Wayne
    Henry Fonda
    Jimmy Stewart
    and others, Wayne didn't serve in the Armed Forces as the others did but he and people like Bob Hope, Martha Raye and others did a lot for us and I am proud of and appreciate them all. ;)
    U.S. Navy vet

    PS that's why they are called "actors" because they follow a script in their movies.

    "pee wee" wow you must feel great to have him? for a hero. or "how low can you go?"
