    #2 The Way of the Gun :what:
    #3 The Road Warrior :p
    #4 The Professional :D
    #5 Enemy at the Gates :neener:
    Ther are many more but I can't think of them right now.

    Can't heat, ronin, Collateral etc for sort of realism

    SWAT, Navy SEALs, Desperado, Once Upon A Time IN Mexico, etc if you just want mindless gun action

    I added Collateral, great gun action. Also older Steven Segal movies had some good stuff, back when he could actually do his moves...

    Heat, Ronin, Black Hawk Down, Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers, in no particular order.The first two, because of the excellent gunplay. The other three because they are badass movies with guns in them.

    I agree on Collateral as well.

    I have only seen the yahoo clip of Collateral wher Cruz shoots the two robbers in the alley. Is the rest of the movie cheesey or good.

    The rest of Collateral is good, well worth seeing. Even Tom Cruise doesn't just fall down dead from multiple shots like in most movies.

    Quigley is one of my favorite movies. Ronin is as well.

    Hopefully the new Miami Vice will be good will Mann at the helm

    May I add, Dog Soldiers? While it's not intrinsically a gun movie, I believe it is good for that, too!

    The plot is predictable, and the parts are over-acted. Completely cheesey, and I though it was great.

    The best scene, IMHO, is the one where he's sitting in his hotel room, loading magazines for his 1911's. There's gotta be 100 of them on the table. Not sure where he carried them all during the fight, but he certainly used 'em all!

    ...cue the slow-motion scene of him dumping the still-smoking mags from his Colts as he slowly ascends the stairs in search of hiding BG's...

    That machine gun Jessie Ventura used in Predator was pretty mean.

    The battle scenes in Bruces Willis' Tears of the Sun were pretty good and I cant belive no-one has mentioned 'Hard boiled' (John Woo), the tinkling of spent shell cases in the background add to realism.
    oh, and Face-off. :)

    Good stuff!

    I always keep "Way of the Gun" and "Last Man Standing" close by when I'm in the mood for some good old 1911 shooting, and 'HEAT' when I want just good old fashioned violence for noi reason at all......

    Also Tombstone. The gun handling isn't particularly great other than the scene where Ringo puts on a show spinning his revolver, but that one makes it worth watching.

    My picks are...

    Last man standing
    Quigley down under
    Outlaw Josey Wales
    Young guns

    There is a movie I saw once or twice about a hitman who takes in a girl who's family has just been whacked for a drug business gone bad. I'm thinking that The Professional is the Stallone movie and the title to the one I'm thinking of is similar. Or do I have it backwards?

    Good choices above! I would add: Falling Down, almost any of the classic Clint Eastwood movies, and Cross of Iron with James Coburn, one of the greatest war movies ever put on film. If anybody has not seen Cross of Iron, see it now!

    Definitely some good flicks there. Dog Soldiers is one that you don't hear about too often. If you're adding just fun and stupid gunplay, I'd tack on Equilibrium (all about that sticky hands sequence at the end!) and Versus (Japanese zombie/yakuza/samurai/etc flick).

    If you watch Boondock Saints on DVD, make sure you check out the cut scene with the phonecall from their mom. Most hilarious scene I've seen in years, and they cut the darn thing! Why?

    I kind of like "The Hidden" for silly gunplay:

    Any fans of Grosse Pointe Blank? Lots of gun play and humor. Also there's the realistic element where a front door is not sufficient cover and nobody gets airborne from being shot.
