    I've read a lot of what guys think are the best gunfights out there on DVD...
    But what about the worst of the worst gunfight scenes? Like the last gunfight in Mr & Mrs Smith or in Smokin Aces? The real stinkers...
    What do you guys think?

    Charlie's Angels...

    Don't you just love how coked up anorexic Hollywood actresses can shoot dual .50 cal Desert Eagles while flying through mid air. :rolleyes:

    The shootout in the movie Open Range. Kevin Costner's character (Charlie Waite) was a dude not to be messed with...

    I think you missed the point, worst gun fights, the one you mention is about the best.

    My father inlaw just bought this movie because I told him the Govenator's daddy was a Nazi. He also bought me True Lies and Predator, now he is just screwing with me.

    Smoken Aces, where the Chick is shooting the 50 from the next door hotel into the other hotel while a CQC gun fight is going down in the hallway.

    Maybe not the worst but it is the most fresh in my mind.

    Also +1 For Mr. and Mrs Smith being a laugh. The scene in the department store.

    Just about anything in the quick and the dead is up there.

    Or down there, however you want to put it.

    I specify Movies only... if we get into TV... we will never be able to view another topic. My hell. Just movies. Movies on Amazon, blockbuster, or netflix... so we can share the pain.


    There were guns in Charlies Angels?

    I'm perplexed by your statement. I thought the beach scene was one of the best depictions of battle ever shown on the big screen.

    Well....

    I don't have time to rank 10, but I just saw The Marine a few weeks ago, and man, it was bad. Guys shooting a Camaro with .223's, and the bullets ricocheting off the plastic/fiberglass body...

    Also, The big gunfight scene in Invasion USA. Chuck IS DA MAN, but that gunfight was the worst. I hope Chuck doesn't read this board. He could kick my a$$ just by thinking angrily about me!

    Any of the Matrix movies. Thousands of bullets that can all by dodged by the magic of CGI. Made an very bad impression on our easily swayed youth. Too many think they can wear leather trenchcoats and sunglasses and the firearms they get a hold of won't actually hurt anyone.

    "Bottom Ten Worst Gunfights"

    ... wouldn't that be the same as asking for the Top Ten Best Gunfights?

    I'm trying to decide if the scene in Hot Shots! Part Deux where Topper Harley has the M60 in homage to Rambo and racks up the body count on the digital heads up display is either the worst or the best shootout EVAR! :neener:

    The Matrix had great gunfights. Not the most realistic, but extremely entertaining nonetheless.

    the 70's were dark and evil times. People were driven to strange acts because they wore polyester against their skin. Also the plaid prints drove people crazy

    No, it proves that you can't do two things at once.
    :D

    The worst one I've seen is in Predator 2... who knew street gangs were that well armed?
