Whats yours? It could be anything from a gunfight or duel to the intro scene in Lord of War where the camera is in first person view of a traveling bullet.

My favorite is a small gunfight in The Assassination of Jesse James. The short awkward fight in the bedroom that leaves Jesse's cousin dying on the floor. The whole scene was just so gritty and real. It puts a sick feeling in your gut it feels so real and emotional. Nowhere near as graphic or stylized as some gunfights in movies, but in my opinion its easily the best BECAUSE of its simple honesty. I would not hope to experience that situation firsthand.

If you havent seen the movie, id highly recommend it.

The Dirty Harry scene tops my list....

" I know what you're thinking. 'Did he fire six shots or only five'? Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, i kind of lost track myself. But being that this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well do ya, punk?"

I guess for nostalgia mine still has to be the scene in Terminator when he's shopping at the gun shop. The clerk is handing him a shotgun, 1911, Uzi, etc. When I was a kid I thought that was the coolest thing and I couldn't wait to be able to shop like that (and I have :) just without the shooting the clerk at the end part).

Another one is when *SPOILER* in Unforgiven Clint Eastwood shoots Gene Hackman and Gene says, 'I don't deserve this' and Clint says in a hoarse voice, 'Deserve's got nothin to do with it' and pulls the trigger.

“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee.”

It's all fantastical, . . . but the "get Morphius out" scene in The Matrix comes to mind [even though some of the falling shell casings don't match the gun they're coming out of].

Also the "I'm your huckleberry" duel scene near the end of Tomestone.

One of my favorites is that scene in one of the Matrix films where Trinity and an agent are falling vertically in slow-motion after diving out a window, Trinity firing two machine pistols and the agent firing what I think is was an IMI Desert Eagle handgun.

The scene in The Jackal when Jack Black finished the gun Bruce Willis ordered, and Willis finds that the scope isn't perfectly zeroed. He sends Black out and has him hold out a pack of cigarettes. Willis aims at it, fires, and the gun blows Black's arm clean off above the elbow. Guess it wasn't properly sighted-in after all.

I also really like the scene in RED when a sweeper team goes into Bruce Willis' house in the middle of the night, and he rids the world of every last one of them. That scene is pretty awesome.

William Munny "Clint Eastwood" in "Unforgiven" going into the saloon at Big Whiskey to kill the people who hung a sign on his friend, Ned (Morgan Freeman). When the conversation comes to this dialogue betweeen Little Bill Daggett (Gene Hackman) and Munny I think we see the whole of the ugly nature of killing and murder in just a few sentences. The best part is where they say:

"Little Bill Daggett: You'd be William Munny out of Missouri. Killer of women and children.

Will Munny: That's right. I've killed women and children. I've killed just about everything that walks or crawled at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill, for what you did to Ned."

The thing that really clinches the whole deal is that after the murderous Munny kills half the bar and threatens the entire town the one prostitute who was responsible for hiring them to kill looks at Eastwood riding out of town on his big white horse and she's thinking he's her knight in shining armor. It's freaking brilliant stuff. It's the best movie of all time IMO. It explores the nature of man in ways most movies never even dream of. It shows how it takes a cold blooded, heartless monster of a human to kill the way some do but at the same time it shows that even a man like that can be transformed even if he does fall back into his old ways. But he plays the role of hero in that moment.

That movie is true art IMO. It fully explores the nature of humans that kill without compunction. It is just a brilliant movie IMO. The best ever. It shows how being cool under fire will win out over being a fast draw with a gun but that being fast certainly helps if you're cool too. The people that panic are often the ones that die. It's the people that can control their fear that live. Some just don't care if they live or die. Some just think that no one will ever get them. The best movie ever made IMO.

Just the scene? Five shots, five kills with a 91/30 in "Enemy at the Gates"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMvTR012Dmg

For most films, the guns are mere props. They'll grab something that looks the part, then roll with it. Often shooting in ridiculous and unrealistic ways. But I can tell you, Jude Law loved that rifle. He apparently went through some intensive training with it beforehand.

I have many favorite movie "gun" moments, but the first one that pops into my head is from the original Lethal Weapon.

Riggs (Mel Gibson) and Murtaugh (Danny Glover) are at the LAPD indoor shooting range, after having just been partnered up. Murtaugh wants to show up the young cocky Riggs. He puts a human silhouette target out at about 10 yards, draws his S&W .357 revolver and fires a single shot right in the middle of the silhouette's head. "Not bad for an old man," he says. "OK, step aside old man," says Riggs as he puts the same target out to the back wall (looks like 20 or 30 yards away). He pulls his Beretta 92 out, and proceeds to make a perfect smiley face on the target with about 9 or 10 shots. Murtaugh looks at Riggs' Beretta and says, "what, do you sleep with that thing?" Riggs responds with "I would if I slept."

Watching the Lethal Weapon movies as a kid made me want a Beretta 92 more than anything. I finally bought one about 6 years ago.

I am partial to the scene in "Quigley Down Under" when he is stood up "in front of my old pistol target".....Quigley pulls off his glove, flexes his wounded hand and says, "well, this ain't Dodge City.....and you ain't Bill Hickok", then proceeds to kill the bad-guys.

"I said I didn't care for pistols......didn't say I didn't know how to use one."

From a movie, was already covered in post 23 (Enemy at the Gates.)

From a TV show: an episode of Hill Street Blues. Dennis Franz, as Det. Norman Buntz, has rolled up on a scene. Two uniforms (Officers Bobby Hill and Andy Renko) have cornered a junkie who had absconded with a cooler from a crashed ambulance, a cooler which contains a human heart being transported for transplant. The junkie is demanding money for the heart's safe return.

The dialogue goes, as I remember, like this:

PTL Hill: "There's a man in desperate need of that organ. If he doesn't get it, he's gonna die!"

Det. Buntz, (as he approaches and draws his .38 snub): "Is this our man? Is this him?"
He then tells "Dr. Hill and Dr. Renko" to "get your masks and gowns on; looks like we're gonna have to operate!"
The junkie threatens to open the cooler and slash the heart with a knife he's holding, saying "I'm the one who's gonna operate. Then you don't get no heart!"

Det. Buntz replies: "Listen, pal, if that heart don't make it, I'm gonna blow your freakin' head off and we're gonna use yours! You got that!?" (turning to Hill and Renko, he continues "get that medical kit out of my car; I got a scalpel in there.!"

He begins to count backwards from two, adding to Hill and Renko to "Get ready. When he goes down, we're not gonna have much time!"

The junkie then drops the cooler and runs.

No shots fired, but cool dialogue to me.

Every scene in The Way of the Gun, which I believe someone's already mentioned. My favourite of the movie would have to be the "Move, moving" scene, where no shots were actually fired.

The gun fighting choreography was done by an ex-SEAL, quite evident through the movement and tactics.

Yep. Probably among the best extended shootouts I've seen in any movie. If you check the behind the scenes footage for Heat, you'll see that all those guys went through some serious firearms training (with real life experts) before "shooting" (heh) that scene.

I also think some of the scenes in Equilibrium...with the gun katas they did...were very cool

The Matrix has a great shootout, no doubt!

But has no one seen Django Unchained? The final shootout is totally over-the-top. Probably the most insane shootout in any movie I can think of. And surprisingly, no one fires more than 6 shots from any revolver.

Spoiler alert (and NSFW language and blood), but here's the video-

Outlaw Josey Wales. Two guys have the drop on him. He slowly pulls his Walkers butt first, then executes the spin n' shoot, I believe it is what is known as a "road agent spin", takes 'em both down. Made me want to learn to do it. Really not that hard. I still rewind and rewatch that scene.

Similarly in Dead Man, when William Blake comes on the two lawmen searching for him, his SAA dangling by the trigger guard. "You William Blake?" "Do you know my poetry?" Then flips up and shoots. Different spin, but equally effective. Good movie, if a little slower pace than your average western.

Whoa! How could I forget one of the most iconic?!? Raiders of the Lost Ark. Cairo Swordman scene. 'Nuff said.

Also of note is the scene in Breaking Bad wherein Walter White is buying a gun from Lawson, played by Jim Beaver. The conversation, along with the advice, seemed unusually spot on for a television show, even though specifics elude me at the moment. Maybe I just find Jim Beaver credible.

My favorite isn't a shootout.....from Terminator 2 -

The Terminator and John Conner pull back the door leading to an underground room. They walk in, and pull down a dusty sheet revealing an entire wall of AK's, M16s, M60s, Dragunovs etc etc. Arnold grabs a grenade launcher, pops it open and then closes it, and says "excellent".

He then walks to the end of the room, picks up a minigun, and turns to look back at John. John says "that's definitely you".

September 6, 2013, 03:58 PM
For me the best gun movies where the Boon Dock Saints films. For westerns I would say Quigley Down Under and his sharps rifle. As for down right ridiculous would be a grade D horror flick called Komodo vs Cobra with their never guns (Beretta 92) that have magazine where the bullets never run out.

The opening to Grosse Point Blank is great! Love Dan Akroid with the two 629 PC's

Yep, Tom Cruise with the thugs in Collateral.

Leon in Blade Runner. "My mother?...... Let me tell you about my mother."

Roy breaking Harrison Fords fingers and then giving him his gun back in Blade Runner.

Dr. Gonzo waving his .357 around in the convertible and attempting to shoot it in the air in the begining of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Jonny Depp shooting the same .357 in random directions at nothing, out of frustration, in Fear and Loathing.

John Malkovich holding the 460 mag on the spy in the airport in RED. "She has a camera in her bag..... I'm gonna kill her now......"

Always loved when Vasquez runs out of rifle ammo in the vents in Aliens, ditches the rifle, and pulls out a BHP. She then pins an alien's head to the wall with her boot, and shoots it in the head like six times at point blank range.

Boondock Saints -- when they drop through the ceiling, and also when they trade the stolen Russian guns and jewelry for their small arsenal

Blackhawk Down -- when the small team redeployed at night and they have the cover of darkness and their NVGs to give them the advantage.

Casino -- in the end when they start eliminating all the witnesses. Not much of a shoot out, but a cool scene with a lot of nice pistols with supressors and mafia hitmen

I don't know if it is my favorite, that would take awhile to settle on, but there are a number of good scenes in Equilibrium.

In particular, the final one-on-one gun fight is a very different take on a close quarters gun fight. Not particularly realistic, it is sci-fi, but fun.

My favorite scene of all time is at the end of A Few Dollars More when Col. Douglas Mortimer finally gets his chance to avenge his sister's murder by facing off against El Indio. The location, the music, the lighting, the look on Col. Mortimer's face, the years of waiting to avenge his sister ...

Monco: Very careless of you old man ... try this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-rFT-uHm4w

The movie ends with the following exchange ...

Col. Douglas Mortimer: My boy, you've become rich.
Monco: You mean we've become rich, old man.
Col. Douglas Mortimer: No, it's all yours. I think you deserve it.
Monco: What about our partnership?
Col. Douglas Mortimer: [smiles] Maybe next time.

There are just so many amazing scenes in Clint Eastwood's westerns ... far too many to list. The Outlaw Josey Wales is my all time favorite movie so just about any gunfight in that movie is among my favorites.

I like this movie a lot though when I saw it at the theater it left me speechless as it was such a different kind of Eastwood cowboy movie. The scene me tinned below is really good. I especially like the misfire of the shotgun.

This thread should be stickied for great gun fu suggestions.

I was waiting for the "Last Man Standing" to appear (no. 53) and I had forgotten about the bank scene in "They Live" (no. 63). I really like the gravel pit scene in "Raw Deal" where Schwarzenegger shoots up the place from inside a convertible while "Satisfaction" is on the cassette player.

My favorites have been listed by others, but a recent one worthy of note was in "Justified", the TV series, when 3 bad guys were holding guns on US Marshal Raylan Givens and his pregnant wife. Raylan helps one BG to shoot himself, and then shoots BG #2 in the head. BG #2 drops like a rock and Winona, seated in a chair picks up his gun from the floor, unseen by BG #3. She takes a blind shot behind her while she is sitting, shoots BG #3 in the badoobies, doubles him over, and Raylan triple taps BG #3 in the chest.

Remarkable!

Love this show.

Of course I also really liked the final shootout in "Open Range" though it would have been better if Costner's character had reloaded once in a while.

The Cairo Swordsman Scene in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (someone else already posted it but I can't seem to find the post now).

Some folks have mentioned the "Outlaw Josey Wales" I'd say that whole movie but it is my favorite western.

Oh, THIS one is an easy one!

Army of Darkness, where "Good-Ash" encounters his evil twin, "Bad-Ash", who smacks him around, calling him "goodie little two-shoes"

The evil twin get's a double barrel shotgun to the nose, with the phrase:

"Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0Hmc7eeXjw


OK, you talked me into it:

Include any gun scene from: My Name is Nobody, They Call Me Trinity, Trinity is Still My Name.


My Name is Nobody:

"You know what they say? He could draw his gun three times before the other guy even starts reaching! Like this!" (Draws 4 times) "Well...we gotta shoot it out, I'm ready." (about 27 minutes nito the movie):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fxqc4lae7bI


They Call Me Trinity:

"Least you can do for a man who wants to die is wish him a cross with his name on it. You just give him your name...you'll get one." "They call me Trinity." "Trinity! Why, that's...the right hand of the devil!" (about 8 minutes into the movie):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ersTjWmjJS0


Trinity is Still My Name:

"You like to see that again? It's hard to catch the first time." (about 41 minutes into the movie):

I haven't seen any recent movies with gun scenes that really "tripped my trigger" (sorry). The one in TOMBSTONE where Ringo twirls the gun and Holliday twirls his tin cup is probably my favorite. Either that one, or the "Say When!" scene of the same movie.

So no one has mentioned Rambo.... 2 movies 3 scenes and I can picture some of you rolling your eyes, but they are freaking cool. And when I think of gun scenes these pop Into my head.

1st, the second installment in the Rambo series, the vietnamese officer is firing at Rambo with a pistol and Rambo calmly loads an exploding arrow Into his bow and proceeds to remove the vietnamese officer from the face of the earth.

2nd, his chopper is on The ground as the smoke clears Rambo is faking being dead and surprizes the Russian pilot with an rpg to the face. Ruins his day. I count rpgs as guns For this purpose.

And last, in Rambo 4 when he sacks the truck mounted 50 machine gun and rips everyone in front of it in half.

I named my dog Rambo btw, so I may be bias.
And thank you all for reminding me about some of those gems I need to watch again.

Movies that build up to a short gun scene are far better then movies which include them everywhere. Even when it's just a hunting gun they build up to, where the shoot them up movie has all kinds of tacticool weapons.

I remember in the signs movie when he grabbed that double barrel I just wanted to see that alien gray blasted with 3" 000, alas it never happened.

Say, if you were to shoot an alien, could you have it mounted, or would you be arrested for murder, or the DNR informed for poaching? Would you need a permit to possess their laser pistol if they had one, or would it be a destructive device? Hmm.

Can't believe no one has mentioned the first time John Wayne is seen in Big Jake. Maureen O'Hara precedes by saying retrieving her grandchild will take a particularly unpleasant sort of man. Next seen is of one of John Wayne's big blue eyes looking down the sights of a lever gun, stops and says "No sir, I ain't. I haven't butted into any body's business since I was 18 years old at which it nearly got me killed." Wayne starts to turn away when dog growls. Wayne turns back to see a cattle rancher kick a little boy who was trying to stop the hanging of a sheep herder. Wayne's comment was "Why did he have to go and do that?" I wish I could find a poster of that blue eye looking down the sights of a lever gun.

It’s also a great movie showing the horrors, bitterness, and atrocities of the Bosnian civil war in Sarajevo following the fall of Yugoslavia.

For me...Outlaw Josey Wales is my all time favorite. So anything from that movie is fun for me.

If you have never seen it try " the Wind and the Lion". Sean Connery stars with Candace Bergman. The lead on is the best. Bedouin horsemen, riding hard, coming into a village. As they storm through the narrow streets and bazzars the people scatter or are trampled. Ropes holding tents are cut.
Through out this the scene cuts to a British couple having tea by a pool. Suddenly the horsemen burst through into the pool area. The Brit guy says "sit down, Martha!"...out comes the Webley. A rider rolls off with each shot until you see "click,damn!,chop!" ... and Martha is kidnapped.

A great start ...and the movie is OK, too.

it left me speechless as it was such a different kind of Eastwood cowboy movie

Everyone recognized that as a different kind of western. It was the third western to win the best picture Oscar (Cimarron and Dances With Wolves were the first two). It was almost an anti-western really showing just how evil the things are that many westerns almost celebrate. But that is how it should be IMO. Killing people isn't something that should be romantic. Unforgiven just showed the true nature of killers, not matter what era they live in, better than any movie I've ever seen.

Some other great shootouts I've remembered are the shootout between the two assassins (John Cusack and Dan Aykroyd) in Grosse Point Blank. That was so over the top with them loading so many mags in their guns and trying every trick ever used to get a shot at the other guy without getting it themselves. It was like how the Blues Brothers might have done a shootout.

Another great shootout that no one has mentioned that I've seen is at the end of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. They were doing ok until the army showed up. :)

BTW I love Quigley and Josey Wales and High Plains Drifter and a lot of other great shooter movies that have been mentioned here. I haven't seen anyone mention Gran Torino which I also think has a great shoot out scene even though Eastwood wasn't even armed at the time. And the scene where he runs the guy off his lawn was great too.

A lot of those old westerns were really good. Winchester 73 had a great shootout at the end of the movie. Sammy Davis Jr. had a really fast draw in real life and it showed up in his movies too. He could pull a pistol almost as fast as anyone living. He thought about going on the trick shooting circuit in fact.

The opening scene of "The Letter" with Bette Davis. She uses a top break revolver (S&W or Webley) to repeatedly shoot the guy who tried to rape her... or did he? I remember when "Death Wish" came out, the ninnies whined about Charles Bronson's character shooting muggers multiple times, and while they were on the ground. Bette did the same thing almost forty years earlier.
The "Yo homey, is that my briefcase?" scene from "Collateral". I use it to illustrate the fact that "Mozambique" can be a verb as well as a proper noun. :D
The scene at the start of "The Wind and the Lion" when the Brit shoots down a bunch of Berbers with his Webley RIC... until he runs out of ammunition.
The end of "Thief" with James Caan where he does expert work with an M1911.

I agree with our friend olderguns. Val Kilmer redefined the role of Doc Holiday.

Trivia:

Margaret Mitchell patterned Ashley Wilkes the love of Scarlett O'Hara's life after her cousin Mattie Holiday's lover, who was her cousin John Henry Holliday. When Doc Holiday went west to seek his fortune, Mattie entered a convent, taking the name Sister Mary Melanie.

There is a reference to the cousin Doc loved in Tombstone.

A little-known film from around 1992 called Light Sleeper, starring Willem Dafoe, had one of the more realistic gunfights I had seen to that time, between Dafoe, Victor Garber, and a couple of Mooks. Dafoe takes the first shot at point-blank range into a Mook's gut when nobody was looking for it, and the other Mook grazes Dafoe twice after popping a round at him and missing widely at a range of about six feet. He winds up killing both Mooks and Garber with four shots, while only one Mook gets to fire, scoring two ineffectual hits and killing a perfectly innocent mirror.

Basically, a pretty good representation of a gunfight between people who barely know which end of the gun to hold.

Not even close IMO. That kid was just mean. There's no depth of character at all. There's a reason Unforgiven won the best picture Oscar. Not that I care about Oscars but that movie is one of the best ever. McCabe And Mrs. Miller isn't. I know Altman and his penchant for bashing everything American and everything most people think is decent and I don't care for him one bit. MASH was about the worst movie I've ever seen to be honest or it had the worst attitude anyway. The way Altman bashes America is sickening. He was one of the first of the Hollywood America haters and I wouldn't pay a plug nickel to see one of his movies.

Eastwood was much different. I could spend an hour explaining that but this is a gun board.

There's the final battle scene of the beleagured Welsh regiment left to defend the supply line of Chelmsford's army at Rork's Drift during the Zulu War. Tenacity, superior firepower, honor and luck rule the day. It is inspiring to a man but reminds us that, as R.E. Lee said (though he was actually speaking favorably about slaughtering so many men), it is good war is so terrible else we should grow too fond of it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDjDL-tIc_Y




ZULU! has always been one of my favorite movies.

During the 22nd and 23rd of January 1879, 153 soldiers fought against 4000 African Zulu warriors, under the command of Lieutenant Chard of the Corps of Royal Engineers and Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead of the 24th Regiment, aided by eight men of the Natal Native Contingent; three troopers of the Natal Mounted Police; five personnel of the Medical Staff; three men of the Army Commissariat; four Royal Artillerymen; a Sergeant of the General's Staff; Chard's Driver, a Royal Engineer; one member of the 3rd Regiment; one Corporal of the 90th L.I.; a Corporal from the Army Service Corps. and a Chaplain and two helpers.
These 156 men, by doing their allotted tasks, held the Zulus at bay throughout the battle that raged unceasingly over the two days..
Miraculously, only seventeen men were killed and twelve wounded against around 350 of the Zulus killed. (This was Chard's original estimate) Other claims have been of much greater numbers

Same movie, I love when they are searching the reactor room for people and the aliens are closing in Vasquez yells "let's rock!!!" and opens up with her minigun. Great scene.

Also just about all of Burt Gummer's scenes in "Tremors" and "Tremors 2". Broke into the wrong rec room. "I am completely out of ammo. That's never happened to me before." And the scene where he shoots the screamer with the 50 BMG and it passes through a wall, a building and the engine block of their get away car. Fun stuff.

As has been said, Last Man Standing

Aside from all the horrible incongruities with the rest of the movie:
When Bruce Willis's character is prepping for the "big battle" he's sitting at a table with about 50 magazines and a bazillion rounds of hardball loading them. love that scene.

I believe it may be the only one I've ever seen in a movie where someone actually is loading enough ammo to support the number of shots fired. - not to mention someone actually prepping intelligently at all...

Aside from that, I kinda like the tomb raider backpack with the magazine holder. Cool idea, looks great on film and, of course totally functionally useless.

Judge Dredd had some great shootout scenes BTW. There are just so many movies it's hard to remember the whole list of great scenes. Eastwood with the Gatling Gun in Josey Wales was maybe the best scene in a movie full of great scenes. The Wild Bunch was fantastic. I heard they fired more blanks than real bullets were fired in the entire Mexican Revolution. That one is really hard to top. The Young Guns when they were trapped in the house. The Untouchables had some great scenes.

Maybe my favorite of all time is Charles Bronson in Death Hunt where they surround his cabin and shoot it up until it's Swiss cheese and then go the door and the first guy in finds out Bronson has the floor dug out a few feet below the level of the logs and has been laying there like it was a fox hole. The guys gets blasted right back out the door he came in and Bronson slams the door and waits for round 2. They eventually dynamite the place but he's gone by then. After Bronson kills the real killer (Bronson was falsely accused of murder) known as the Mad Trapper by shooting him in the face with a shotgun so that he can't even be recognized the sheriff says it's Bronson knowing it really isn't. He also knows the longer they chase him the more people will die. Bronson was made for that role IMO. It's his best ever in a long list of great movies.

Oh, there are lots of them.

One of the best of recent vintage was Tom Cruise vs the alley thugs in Collateral.

Kevin Costner in Open Range.

You the one shot our friend?

Clint Eastwood flipping his two Walkers around to drill a couple of would-be rapists who thought they were carefully disarming him.

Lieutenants Chard and Bromhead calling the orders for continuous volley fire in Zulu:

Rear rank fire! Advance!

Similarly, Richard Sharpe teaching recruits how to use a musket.

You see this? Look at it! This is a 1797 India Pattern musket; it has a 39 inch barrel and fires a ball as big as your thumb. It kills Frenchmen! But you won't kill any Frenchmen with it, you're too slow!

Gus McRae in Lonsome Dove, when he was pinned down in a buffalo wallow, and got tired of missing, so he flipped up the rear sight on his Henry, and plugged him a thug.

Kevin Costner again, this time just most of his flashy gun handling in Silverado.

Quigley. Both the bucket at the beginning and the duel at the end.

Typical me behavior, I posted and then read the thread. Duplicated a few, but also thought of a few that haven't been mentioned yet.

Killer Elite, when the kid neglects to know his target and what's beyond it. Wound up plugging his buddy through the bad guy's head. Oops.

The basement bar shoot out in Inglorious Basterds. Everybody had a gun, just about everybody ended up dead in about two seconds. That movie was awesome, both for that sort of realism, and the iconoclastic way it exploded so many James Bond tropes.

Public Enemies. Lots of interesting modified hardware in that one, much of it based on stuff Dillinger and company were known to have. My favorite bit was right at the beginning, though, when Pretty Boy Floyd tried to outrun a man with a rifle. It was Melvin Purvis and his Mauser sporter, he stopped running, took aim, set the trigger, and drilled him.

The lion charge scene from Out of Africa, Karen Blixen and her Enfield take the lioness, who's first to charge, instead of dropping and letting Denys Finch-Hatton play manly protector. Turns out to be a good thing, as it leaves Denys and his big H&H still fully loaded when the lion himself charges a second later.

One more odd one. Not a great gun movie, by any means, but it cracks me up just remembering: Tommy Lee Jones using a 1911 as a pocket pistol in The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada.

Truly zulu was a great movie. I find myself uninterested in a lot of older movies because it isnt realistic enough for me, and i fall out of the story and back to reality. Its a weakness, but this is one of several (ok, a lot) of pre-80s movies i love completely.

Interesting fact, did you know that in the real life attack, not a single british soldier was felled by a spear? Every casualty they took was at the end of a captured Martini-Henry rifle! Fascinating.

I just thought of a great shootout with Charles Bronson in Death Hunt. A posse, or something like a posse, was after Bronson and they found his cabin in the backwoods of Alaska. They surrounded him and blasted his cabin to pieces but he had dug out the floor inside and he was down below the level of the logs so they were shooting over his head. When the first guy came through the door Bronson blew him back out with a shotgun. Bronson had several other surprises for that posse and in the end he walked away.

The Wild Bunch was great as others have said. It's said they shot more blanks in that movie than real bullets were fired in the whole Mexican Revolution, which is the backdrop for the movie.

That kid was just mean. There's no depth of character at all. There's a reason Unforgiven won the best picture Oscar. Not that I care about Oscars but that movie is one of the best ever. McCabe And Mrs. Miller isn't. I know Altman and his penchant for bashing everything American and everything most people think is decent and I don't care for him one bit.
I could not disagree more. I have never seen a love for a country and a population better conveyed than by actually quite a few of Altman's films. It's just a love that comes with a deep understanding and a sadness over the insanities and insecurities that come with it. I can't think of anything more sickening than a blindly patriotic film that's trying to portray itself as meaningful.

The evil gunfighter kid isn't supposed to have a dept of character. He's a heavy. The movie is about the victims who can't seem to avoid getting in evil's way and its a sad elegy for them.

Unforgiven is an absolutely fantastic film, but it's a film as plagued with cliche as it is a film that sets out to break them. Munny used to be evil but was redeemed because a woman loved him. And she is dead now. How many times have we seen this? It's a beautiful cliche but it's still one.

Cee Zee
September 10, 2013, 10:54 AM
I think you missed the point of Unforgiven completely. It was a character study of people who are able to kill. Being redeemed is just a way of showing that some people do stay civilized because they want part of the civilized life. And some people can break away from that and fall back into old habits when pressured too. And then there's the woman who saw Munny as a complete hero. She clearly fell in love with him. She watched him ride out of town on his white horse. That was an intended cliche but it doesn't belong in a western or many movies at all in fact. A stone cold killer was portrayed as a knight in shining armor riding a white horse. You don't see that every day and it shows how perspective can make us view killers as heroes. We hire people who are able to kill as LEO's all the time and we celebrate them when they bring down a really bad character even if they have to shoot them. Some mass killings have been stopped by others with a gun who were willing and able to use it. That aspect of the character of someone able to kill (most people aren't able to do it unless they get brainwashed which is how the military does things) has never been explored in any other movie I remember. And there's the military heroes (something Altman didn't think existed). No one likes war but when you find yourself forced into one you want to win it. How many of us don't know the stories of people like Hathcock, Murphy and York? When I see some Hollyweird America hater bashing people like that it makes me sick. They didn't want to be where they were but they did the job required of them. York in particular hated what he was forced to do but he did it better than anyone. I know people like that personally. I know what they sacrificed. I know regular soldiers and how much they had to give and I remember those who gave all. And then Altman comes along making them out to be bloodthirsty baby killers. That's the character he portrayed on the bridge you know. Yeah he was the heavy like all of our soldiers were in Altman's eyes. He bashed MacArthur like crazy. I wouldn't trade 10,000 Altman's for a MacArthur. The guy didn't do much except keep us from being slaves to the Japanese. How terrible. Ask the North Koreans if they still think he was a monster. Oh I forgot. You can't talk to those people. They're all slaves. I bet a lot of them wish they had been saved by MacArthur now. He was a brilliant man who gave us military victories and believe it or not that is a good thing. Or maybe you would prefer to have our women as sex toys and the men all as slave labor because the Japanese wanted that wherever they went. And who taught them a better way? You guess it. MacArthur. Who stood up to Truman about the concept of limited or political war? What war came along that was fought with those principles that divided this nation forever and gave Altman a foothold in our culture? That would be Vietnam obviously. Yet Altman hated the man but ironically he hated the war MacArthur tried to prevent. Funny how that works.

I still wouldn't give a plug nickel to watch an Altman movie. He's about as bad as it gets. He doesn't love anything that I can see except immorality. I guess some people like that. I don't. I don't want to. I never will. His obvious hatred of Christianity is plenty enough reason for me not to like him. I feel sorry for him or I did until he died.

Look I just don't care for dope head, atheist, communist types who hate everything about America. He even hated the tv series version of MASH calling it racist. Nice guy.

Again the character of Frank Burns in his movie along with the drunken gambler priest was enough reason for me to dislike him. But there was so very much more not to like. You won't sell me on his character so you might as well not bother trying. He was not my kind of person. He was the prime example of the New Hollywood - the Hollywood that was taken over by atheist, communist America haters. He might not recognize the contributions to humanity made by people of conviction but I sure do. He sought to tear down what took thousands of years to build. He thought he knew better like most 60's radicals. BTW most people in the 60's really disliked people like him and I'm not just talking about the rednecks. Radicals were routinely booed of the stage at rock concerts because people didn't want to hear their message of hate. The real 60's was about coming together and loving each other not slamming everyone who doesn't follow your PC rules. And yes his type was responsible for the PC rules. How anyone can think that's a good thing is beyond me. Yeah he likes the freedom to think just like he does or else. He's the progenitor of Obama. He made radical left wing politics a staple of Hollywood. Those are the gun grabbers you know. Those are the tree huggers. I fully support real environmentalism. One of my best friends from college testified before the Senate about such things (damage done to the ecosystem by strip mining to be exact). I should be totally committed to that sort of thing. I nearly died from working in a toxic waste dump. I got stage 3 cancer from it and was told my chances of living didn't exist. Well they were wrong. And so was Altman. My friends didn't like haters like him. He wasn't one of us. He was what we thought of as a pushy do-gooder intent on telling everyone how to live. The totalitarian state we live in was largely made possible by people like him. I couldn't stand him while he was alive and I'm glad he isn't around to make more distasteful movies. The New Hollywood is one of the great evils in human history. We will lose our nation because of it. Heck we already have. Yeah give him a medal for service beneath contempt. I can't stand the jerk myself. I wish I would have been able to MASH him a little. A Pop in the eye would have been a nice thing to give him too. BTW do you realize how awful that dog of a movie was (Popeye)? More Altman work. I used to like Popeye until I saw that movie. He was a guy with real values and he wasn't afraid to stand up for what was right. Altman must have hated the real Popeye.

So now you know my views. You will not change them. There will be no further reason to discuss the subject. This is a gun board. This isn't a movie review board or a politics board or anything except a gun board so can we PLEASE stick to the subject?

That movie is true art IMO. It fully explores the nature of humans that kill without compunction. It is just a brilliant movie IMO. The best ever. It shows how being cool under fire will win out over being a fast draw with a gun but that being fast certainly helps if you're cool too. The people that panic are often the ones that die. It's the people that can control their fear that live. Some just don't care if they live or die. Some just think that no one will ever get them. The best movie ever made IMO.

Unforgiven is an interesting movie to me because it doesn't give the viewer a clear cut hero to cheer for. Munny is vicious killer who has never done penance for past sins, and is the 'hero' only because the men he's pursuing are vicious killers themselves. Ned Logan seems trustworthy because he's played by Morgan Freeman, but the film hints that he also has a violent past, plus he agrees to kill men in cold blood for money. The Schofield kid is a glory seeking thug, but he has the excuse of naiveté. Sheriff Daggett opposes the protagonists, but from his perspective he's simply running violent troublemakers out of town. The film produces a really excellent tension by not giving the audience a comfortable perch to sit on.

As far as gun scenes go, I like when Munny is practicing his shooting at the beginning and can't even hit a water bucket at close range with the revolver, so he gets a shotgun instead and blows it apart. The way he kind of struts a little bit to show off, but even his watching kids know that this old guy is past his prime, is a great character moment.

That is probably my favorite movie gun scene. Fight between dissimilar weapons are always fun to watch, and in this case they also reflect the personalities of the combatants; a slow, precise bolt action rifle for cold-blooded Purvis, and a Thompson bullet hose for hot-headed Floyd. Simple and straightforward with no camera tricks or flashy editing. Classic vintage weapons and a great soundtrack in the background.

and is the 'hero' only because the men he's pursuing are vicious killers themselves

Actually the people they are paid to kill didn't kill anyone. They just cut up the prostitute. And one of them tried to stop the other one from doing it. Nothing is clear cut in that movie. That's part of what makes it so great. Little Bill thinks what the cowboys did wasn't all that bad. He makes them give ponies to the guy running the whore house. He doesn't do anything for the whore. The whores hated the cowboys but the people of the town didn't. They threw rocks at the window of the whore house when the first cowboy got killed.

I think they deliberately didn't want anyone looking like a hero for killing people. The cowboys certainly deserved punishment but I wouldn't have voted them guilty of a crime worthy of a death sentence. Little Bill beat the snot out of anyone who brought a gun into town. English Bob was a terrible human who killed for fun. They set out to show that killing wasn't glamorous and they did the job well. Plus the writer who was trying to make it all glamorous saw what violence was really like too. He didn't much care for what he saw I don't think. It really is a great movie.

Too many westerns do make heroes of killers. Eastwood played some of those roles himself and I think he regretted it to an extent. His early movies especially were violent to the extreme (for their time period). They were the first westerns to show a gun being fired and a man dropping to the ground from being shot in the same video. That was a big deal at the time. It was considered cutting edge for violence and it pushed a lot of movies into becoming a lot more violent. In the time before that you saw the shooter then the camera shifted and you saw the other guy drop. It seems tame now but it was big at the time.

Well, that escalated quickly.

What escalated? I just don't want to talk about the politics of Altman. There were several other posts on the subject before this. Did you read the whole thread? I don't want to tick off the moderators. And why am I explaining this to you?

Orrrr...the scene in the really bad Sci-Fi thriller (don't remember the name...Drat!) where Roddy Piper walks into a bar, says "I have come to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and I just ran out of bubble gum", then unlimbers his 12 gauge pump!

I have 2, the first is the mountain setup in "Shooter" and the second is Rampage Jackson in the tunnel with the AA12 in "The Expendables". Definitely need an AA for home defense, never can too much fire power!

Eldraque, I had forgotten about that one. "Oh yeah." He was such a magnificent SOB in that movie. .45 on one side, big pipe wrench on the other.

INRE: Gene Wilder. Apparently there was a hoax this week or last that he had died.

When they cleared the village in Tears of the Sun.

Or possibly when they took out the gorilla kaje in Pacific Rim while using a defensive retention position. Just slightly upscaled with giant robots and plasma cannons :p

Thanks,Sol!
Woops! I forgot two that even my wife loved: "Reds" and "Reds 2", The opener in "REds" was a real eye-opener, and in "2", Helen Mirren is really elegant, and my wife loved it when she opened up her fur coat, with all the guns. They are on our "Buy for sure" list! :D


Ohhh...just one more, please..."TRUE GRIT" with The Duke where he faces a group of baddies, and says "FILL yore hand, you SOB!"

Being new here, I don't know if that would be considered vulgar language, but I think my Grandma would have totally enjoyed it. If it is, moderator, please feel free to remove it.

I already answered earlier, but I believe I may have to amend my previous choice and replace it with one of the ending scenes in Rambo 4; you know, where he gets on the vehicle-mounted machine gun and distributes the gift that keeps on giving.

A truly dedicated and honorable American man who suffered deeply when he returned home, yet still made a life in spite of his troubles.

My WWII vet father revered him.

To Hell and Back was not the greatest movie, but it told the tale, in principal, of what that child/man did for the country that was America.

When Augustus McCrea puts his Colt Walker in the face (after bloodying his nose against the bar) of the bartender that had just disrespected him and Woodrow Call. A scene from the Lonesome Dove series. Gotta love Robert Duvall in that role.

Most of my favorites have been covered, but one - from Kelly's Heroes. It's the scene where the .30 cal is chewing holes in the wall of the German officers' barracks. Oh, and the Tiger tank shooting up the town square. That's plain awesome watching that monster roll around (hey, that 88 is a gun so it counts. :) ). FWIW, I don't think there is an operational Tiger left on the planet now.

Good one. And don't forget where Oddball loosens the Luger in his holster and they walk down the street with the Spaghetti Western music playing and the ever so slight sound of spurs "chinking" in the background...

(And yes, I have seen this movie way too many times...):)

This is obscure. Robert Loggia in Innocent Blood. He plays a mafia hood that is attacked by a beautiful avenging vampire. As being bitten, he pulls a J frame from an ankle holster and shoots her off him. He survives to become a vampire also. Being a J fan, I liked the intro of realism to vampire defense.

When they made the classic film Kelly's Heroes in 1970 they commissioned the building of a Tiger 1 tank replica. As there were no Tiger 1's working in the world it was decided the best way to do this was to get a T34 as they were readily available at the time and make the top half look like a Tiger. It was not entirely accurate as it still had the T34 running gear and it had zimmerit applied even though the rest of the tank was a early edition but unless you had a good knowlege of the Tiger tank these things still looked real.

I wanted to add that the scene in "The Wind and the Lion" where the english gentleman is dropping riders with his revolver till 'click' is truly awesome.

And in one of the Naked Gun movies where the guy keeps adding stuff to his pistol till it is a full fledged anti-aircraft gun!

"Major Payne just terminated that bad man with extreme prejudice, and if he's still in there, he ain't happy!"

If it were safe to do that, my kids would never be scared.

I'm also a fan of the second gunfight in Bad Boys II, the one where they're chasing the guys that are chasing Marcus's sister. When he dumps 6-8 rounds of .45 into the Lowrey's dash. Their reactions are priceless.

I love the classics, too, but most of those have already been mentioned several times.

Harry Callahan: Well, this is the .44 Magnum Auto-Mag. And, if properly used, it can remove the fingerprints.

everything Clint ever did, and John Wayne too. but there's a GREAT movie, that it seems I'm the only one who ever saw it called Ride With the Devil, that has a LOT of great scenes. All through the movie one of Bloody Bill Anderson's crew keeps takeing potshots at another Confederate, [''Dutchy''] who he suspects of Union leanings because of his German roots. While they are burning and looting Dutchy and a freed slave are eating breakfast in a resteraunt, when the crazy guy comes in talking about how he's gonna tear off Dutchy's head, etc, etc. ''Dutchy'' has a Spiller and Burr [under the table] already cocked and aimed at the wildman's midsection. ''And when were you planning on doing these terrible things to me? Because I am right here, right now, and if you're not gonna do it, I'm going to finish my breakfast, and you can just get the hell outta here'', or something to that effect. just great stuff, IMHO.
