There´s nothing like dangerous men pulling big guns and having it off, so which are your favorites?
Remember that this is about guys being able to shoot BACK at each other, so no ALIENS, ZULU, e.t.c.

Here are my 5 favorite non eastwood shotouts :

Leon vs. EVERYONE!!!!
So slick, so intense, so filled with fear...

The wild bunch vs. errh... EVERYONE

John Wayne charging three armed gunslingers singlehanded in True grit. sorta like knights duelling, but with guns  ;)

Tom Cruise in Collateral, the dance floor scene.

Face off. The assault on castor troys (now played by nicholas cage) gangs hideout.

I like the bank shoot out in Heat ( 1995 ) as they come out of the bank onto the side walk it's about 3 or 4 minutes of gunfire that doesn't let up.Great stuff. O0

I would agree with most of whats been said and include ...

The FBI murders , at the climax, starred David Soul , it was really inpressive for a tv movie.

The Untouchables , at Chicago's Union Station.

My shrink would like to thank you for all the extra time/money i now have to spend with him because of that  Freudian slip...  :D  ;)
(I hope that he´s  just jealous because the voices aren't talking to him  ;) )

Another great shootout i´ve totally forgotten about is the final shootout in Cubic/equilibrium, but then i havent seen it in a while. (took a Bale marathon after Batman begins.) The only thing that kinda annoys me is that when Bale guns down the first two soldiers, the rest just stand confused, before they draw their weapons, but othervise a wonderfull shootout

The street shootout in Heat is great stuff and as a new entry to this list I have to add the scene in the lobby in The Matrix, when Neo and Trinity blast away... :D

One of the greatest shootouts that is not mentioned was in Winchester 73 w/ James Stewart as Linn McAdams and Stephan McNally as Matthew "Dutch Henry Brown" McAdams.

Another was My Darling Clementine w/ henry Fonda as Wyatt Earp, Ward Bond as Morgan Earp, Tim Holt as Virgil Earp, Victor Mature as Doc Holiday, and Walter Brennan as old man Ike Clanton.

Just to name some.

The big shootout at the end of Open Range.

Watched this again today and with the surround sound of bullets flying in from every direction has got to be one of the best shootouts in recent years.

  The "confused" bad guy brings down many action movie shootouts.  Why do the good guys always shoot from cover and/or in a prone position, and the "low level" bad guys just stand there like a target in broad daylight mindlessly and inaccurately firing away?  You can probably directly correlate between the movies budget and how moronic the bad guys are.


  The best western shootout is at the end of "The Wild Bunch".  I love how they all look at each other with insane grins right before the madness ensues.

  The best crime/drama shootout that I can think of is from the bank scene in "Heat".  It feels very real.

  My favorite sci-fi shootout is from "The Fifth Element".  Willis's character takes out some alien baddies holed up in a room.

1. The great shootout at the end of The Shootist.(My favorite John Wayne movie)
2. The over the top shootout at the end of True Romance still blows my mind.

How about the big shootout in The Long Riders (1980)?

Very reminicent of The Wild Bunch with the bullets hitting the body and that shot of the horses going through that huge window is one of the best scenes in any film.

The Carridine brothers were good in that film.
