Can anyone list movies with awesome scenes of gatlin guns?

Off the top of my head, I can only think of:
1. Predator (Jesse!)
2. Matrix 1 (helicopter scene) and Matrix Revolutions (those futuristic Zion machines sort of gatlin-like)
3. Robocop (Ed-209 guns are sort of gatlin-like)
4. The Last Samurai (at the climax I think?)


Can anyone name others? I don't know if it exists or not, but I am waiting for a movie to use an army of old school gatlin gunners. In the movies, it always seems like there is one gatlin gunner.

I can't remember exactly, but I think The War Wagon (1967) has a Gatling gun.

And it is "Gatling", by the way, after its designer, Richard J. Gatling.

EDIT - checked IMDB and several comments mention a Gatling gun, so I remembered correctly. I think it's used quite a bit throughout the ending scenes of the movie.

There's a western, seldem if ever seen anymore, called Something Big . Starred Dean Martin and Brian Keith. The plot revolves around a stolen gatling gun.

Pretty sure there is a western that's titled The Gatling Gun .

A Gat shows up often in spaghetti westerns. One with George Peppard seems to come to mind. I think it was mounted on a flatbed railroad car.

Been awhile since I've seen Django... It's a good one.

The first thing that I thought of was The Wild Bunch.

The gun in the wild bunch wasn't a gatling gun, it was probably a browning machine gun. A Gatling gun had set of a rotary barrels.

Robocop 2

Ghost in the Shell (which heavily influenced the lobby scene in The Matrix)

Possee (
Spoiler:
KKK uses gatling gun to attack black cowboys. One cowboy lights a stick of dynamite, runs towards the gatling gun while it's firing at him, jumps onto the gun platform, throws the dynamite down, and jumps away seconds before it blows up. Awesome.
