Need some help.. What are some good Shoot out movies.

I mean movies like heat, face off and Reservoir Dogs... I have some, but not a lot of those kinds of movies in my collection.. Anyone know any other movies like those.. I mean movies that have lots of guns and firing of them lol. I pretty much have every mob movie ever made so no one point me in that direction.

EDIT: oh yeah and no movies staring the governator.

thanks.

Ronin has a few good shootouts. Open Range has one of the best Western shootouts I've seen in a long time. Way of the Gun also has a couple of good, loud gun battles, and good music to boot.

Can't believe nobody mentioned the film with the best gun fights in years (& yes, way better than the Matrix).



Also The Wild Bunch should be mandatory viewing.

And Time & Tide has an amazing shoot-out with two people propelling vertically down the side of a building.

And of coarse any classic John Woo.

John Woo's Hard-Boiled is one big gun fight.

True Romance has a great mexican standoff, much like Reservoir Dogs.

Another vote for Open Range, of course Tombstone as well.

Bourne Identity has a very tense gun fight when Jason was up against Clive Owen's character.

Any early John Woo stuff
The end of Year of the Dragon
Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia
Tombstone

Just about any major action movie, even the ones that are lousy, have some good shoot-outs. FWIW, a lot of the movies I mentioned have their shootouts at the end.

true shoot-out movies start with the spaghetti westerns of old...i would recommend just about any old Clint Eastwood, "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" being tops. Someone mentioned "The Wild Bunch" and that's a good one, "Tombstone" too.
You can't mention "Hard Boiled" without mentioning "The Killer".
Of course my favorite hands down is the end of "Scarface" which you probably have.

First thing that came to mind. The shootout is a long time coming in the film, but it is excellent once you get there.

One (or more) of the Naked Gun movies had a great shoot-out scene, but I can't remember which...

Although most will not have a clue what I'm talking about, for those rare few that know the brilliance of the show.

Spaced has the greatest gun shoot-out ever filmed in the history of TV & movies

Everyone should go region free just for this show,.

Boondock Saints has a good one or a couple.
Terminator 2, though it wasn't much of a fight.
