‘True Romance’ nailed it
26 of the Best Shootouts in Movie History

You know how they say there’s no such thing as an anti-war movie because even the most brutal depictions of war still make it look awesome? Well, they don’t even try with guns. Liberal Hollywood might spend their off-time campaigning for sensible firearm restrictions, but they know the best way to add excitement to an action scene is to put a gun in everybody’s hand. Good guy? Gun. Bad guy? Gun. Random guy walking by? Gun. Baby in a stroller? Baby in a stroller with a gun.

That’s why Redditor LovableJackassv4 recently asked r/MovieCritic, “What is the best shootout/gunfight scene in a way?” As a contribution, they simply posted a video of the final showdown in Enemy of the State — you know, the one where everyone’s shaking so much and the shots are flashing so fast it looks like a freaking rave. That’s a pretty good one, but Redditors had a whole lot more in mind.
