there are others ,but these are my Favs.and some them make you go"man I NEED one of those guns!":D
My favorite gun movies off the top of my head are....

Sniper - Tom Berenger
Quigley Down Under - Tom Selleck
Leon: The Professional
Boondock Saints
Red Dawn
Saving Private Ryan

I know I'm forgetting a bunch...
"Heat", of course

and "Hard Boiled" from Hong Kong features the highest number of rounds fired I know of in any film, ever. Not super realistic, but a lot of fun and some AMAZING stunts that would never, ever have been possible stateside due to safety concerns.

Second "Tea Guk Gi" from Korea. Great movie. The acting is a little old-fashioned by Hollywood standards. There are no method actors in Korea apparently. Everyone just "ACTS!" But it's kind of refreshing--almost like a film from the 1930's only with more graphic violence.

"Talvisota" (Winter War) is a great one, along with "Ambush" about the continuation war. Yesterday was the 66th anniversary of the Russian invasion of Finland so it's topical.
you beat me to it with 'red dawn' dangit.

'last man standing' with bruce willis and christopher walken

'the beast' awesome tank movie.

'assassins' with stalone and antonio banderas, also desperado with banderas.

'the assignment' with adian quinn and donald sutherland and ben kingsley

'mean guns' has the guy from highlander in it as well as ice t.

'surviving the game' also icet but has rutger hauer and gary busey

I am having a brain cramp at the moment, but there was that Korean movie from last summer that was OUT STANDING!, even subtitled. Anyone remember it?

Shiri? I have it on DVD. Great movie!
Can't believe I forgot to mention "Open Range" (Robert Duvall, Kevin Costner); the climactic gunfight near the end was, in my estimation, realistic and a good depiction of an Old West shootout -- not two guys facing down each on the street at high noon, but guys hiding, running, ducking for cover, courage, cowardice, shooting men in the back ...

Remember, he said "good" gun movie.

I like Bruce Willis movies too, but that one really reeked.

A better (IMHO) Willis movie would be 'Tears of the Sun'.

I've actually come to like "Last Man Standing." It's an homage to the legendary "Yojimbo." The action is silly of course, but it's still fun.

Can you imagine sitting between those two on an airplane? Yikes!

"Gosh, you've really got some pretty toys on this plane"

"Yeah, And light stands for L-I-G-H-T, which stands for Living In God's Heavenly Thoughts. My dark side is making toys for the kids in the back room right now (Grins)"

The one I know from last summer was Tae Guk Gi, already mentioned. Swiri was from the late '90's IIRC.

You are correct. Debuted in '99 and came out on DVD in '02.
+1 Tom Horn

One of my favorites. Not exactly accurate as far as the arms Horn truly carried ( I think he favored a 30-30 instead of a 45-60) but a great flick none the less. McQueen played him well (a little short though).

"I never ate a bug that big before..."

Guns of Navarone

You said "good"...how about 4 Oscars including best picture (1961) and nine nominations....
For handguns, the first movie where the gun out starred the actor,...S&W Model 29, "Dirty Harry". Smith & Wesson couldn't keep up with the demand for .44's as a result of this movie.

1941 classic "Sargeant York" with Gary Cooper.....the first and best movie about a true historic rifle marksman, Alvin York, recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor.
I can't believe no one has mentioned "Face/Off". Many parts of that movie are not exactly "realistic", but still a very entertaining flick!
A new one out is of course Mr. and Mrs. Smith. This movie's chock-full of firearms of all kinds and gun handling is better than most mainstream blockbusters...
Lots of good movies here.

I gotta throw out "True Grit"


Rooster J. Cogburn: “I mean to kill you in one minute, Ned, or see you hanged in Fort Smith at Judge Parker's convenience. Which'll it be?”

Ned Pepper: “I call that bold talk from a one-eyed fat man.”

Rooster J. Cogburn: “Fill your hand you S.O.B!"

Also -- High Plains Drifter, Outlaw Josie Wales, Magnificent Seven.
another one to consider is "man on fire"

in 3 weeks sereinity is coming out on dvd and that has some fun guns in it.

Double Feature: House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects

Why CCW is generally a good idea...
I had to actually turn that movie off halfway through, and believe me, that doesn't occur too often with me.

It wasn't the extreme violence displayed, but rather, the lack of tastefullness in which this violence was displayed - IMO.

But you are right, like the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" glad to carry after these types of movies.
any john wayne movie like El Dorado or Big Jake
any of the Rambos if u can tolerate the unrelisticness of it
Die Hard
The Boondock Saints
