Title: Best shootout/gun fight scenes, go!
Post by: Myxo on February 16, 2017, 04:58:15 PM
A few of my co-workers were discussing Heat, specifically the 10 minute bank robbery shootout. That divulged into "what are some other great shootout scenes?" What better place to ask than you amazing folks at XIXAX! Move this if it belongs elsewhere. I'll get us started with 3 off the top of my head:

Heat

I'm a huge fan of the Peckinpah-inspired bordello shootout from Way of the Gun:

I would not recommend actually re-watching these scenes through youtube clips, use them as reference points.
