Best Shoot Outs

Recommended Posts

I was going to put these in the fight thread but I think gun fights are in a category of their own and shouldn't be lumped in with sword/fist fights.

Two of my favourites are both from Westerns, the final shoot out in Unforgiven is a classic as is the finale of The Wild Bunch.

Any other favourite shoot outs/gun fights?

The end of Young Guns. When Emilio Estevez comes out of the house in that old chest through the window and then shoots that cunt Murphy between the eyes. That whole shoot out is epic. The Young Guns movies are fucking brilliant.

My vote goes to the nightclub shootout in The Matrix: Reloaded. By no means the best film but that scene is fantastic.

The warehouse shootout in John Woo's Hard Boiled, also the hospital shootout in the same film.

The end shootout in A Better Tomorrow Pt 2, the end battle in Extreme Prejudice. All good rip-roaring, vicious bastards of shootouts!!

Equilibrium had loads

Tombstone at the OK Coral and when Wyatt fights Curly Bill in the river

Magnificent Seven

Heat

The end of Butch Cassidey and The Sundance Kid

Once Upon A Time In The West

Open Range was a fairly slow paced western with a great shoot out in it

Shoot 'Em Up was just one huge, ridiculous, awesome shout out.

Agree with Rob Knight...the final shootout in the Unforgiven is WANKTASTIC...:up:

Other shootouts likely to give me a pinger are:

Heat (bank job gone tits)

3:10 to Yuma

Wyatt Earp (OK Coral)

Proof of Life (the rescue attempt......"Downtown 1 this is Uptown 1, rodger, going loud"......LOVE IT!)

Inglorious Bastards (the bar scene)

Black Hawk Dawn (when Gordon & Shughart go in to rescue Mike Durant)

Blood Diamond

Well, anyway there's heaps more.....

Lots of good ones mentioned so far, I'll add Antonio Banderas in the bar scene in 'Desperado' to the sound of Link Wray performing 'Jack the Ripper'. Actually the end of that is pretty awesome as well. In fact the whole film is amazing, need to dig it out it's been a while.

I'm definitely agreeing with 3:10 To Yuma, Heat, Copland and Equilibrium. Shoot 'em Up is just a farce from beginning to end, but I like it :up:

I actually really like Shooter for decent shoot-out scenes as well... and Face/Off
