Looking for a 'take away the pointed gun and shoot back' scene

This happens in many action movies, I've probably seen Steven Segal doing it a couple of times: A bad character points a gun at the hero's head, then in a blink of an eye the hero breakes his hand/takes the gun/shoots back.

I'm looking for movies with something like that for parody purpose. Any titles would be appreciated.

I'm also looking for action movies taking part in WWII Russia. 'Enemy at the gates' is what I have, anything else?

Thanks a million,
Bufi

For WWII Russian front movies I would recommend "Stalingrad" and the classic "Cross of Iron". The pistol thing I will leave for someone else to recommend.

Yeah, the whole movie is almost like that. Except it's good and not Steven Seagal.

Payback has a great scene where Gibson just yanks the gun out of David Paymer's hand. He doesn't shoot back though...

Spoiler:
After he grabs the gun Paymer says, "you're not gonna fuckin' kill me, are you?" Gibson starts repeatedly slamming his head into the glass partition of the cab they're sitting in.

Snakes on a Plane has the most nonchalant example of this I think I've ever seen.

Total Recall. Bad Guy points a handgun at Arnie. Arnie puts Bad Guy's gun hand in a hammerlock. Gun goes off in Bad Guy's hand and shoots him through the stomach.

Doesn't fit your criteria, but I thought Li taking the gun apart was awesome...

Yeah, not sure if its spoofable as it already kind of does that itself.
