Best movie for shooting action/gunporn?

Recommended Posts

While not necessarily gunporn, theres a shitload of non English films worth seeing (if you don't mind subtitles), Brotherhood, Days of Glory, 9th Company etc.

You totally missed out Hacksaw ridge. That’s an awesome film.

No doubt Hacksaw Ridge is a brilliant film, highly recommend it to anyone who likes war films, but personally I think it's not really a shoot em up "gunporn" film though.

 

Speaking of which, Clive Owen in Shoot 'em Up!

John Wicke any one ? But all time favourite gun scene, final battle in Zulu , lined up in front of the redoubt as the Zulus charge in for the kill and Stanley Bakers screams

“1st rank fire !”

“2nd rank fire !”

“3rd rank fire !”   

And then silence !

Loving the wick films, roll on #3, Keanu is a cool mofo, check out street kings, he's very good in that.

I recently watched 12 Strong and thought it was a pretty damn good film, good action and the guns I Love!

 

Tactical bump, I guess, since I've just watched it.  I thought it was fair to middling execrable.

 

The characterisation, such as it was, felt obvious and hackneyed.  They even had a Sand Short Round in there just to give the Fremen one face that you could actually recognise and supposedly care about (but sod the rest of them, they're just natives after all).

 

The four or five action scenes all looked to be filmed in the same dusty valley, with the Cadian Rough Riders wiping out the same mob of anonymous sand ninjas led by that evil wizard from Aladdin over and over again in much the same way.  Oh, look, there's that same MG Technical again.  The Friendly Fremen also seem to lose as many men in each engagement as they started out with, but they obviously have a respawn point close by, because they're all back in action for the next game.  I mean, scene.

 

Technically, it was the usual Hollywood tosh.  Shaped charges used as artillery, every shot an instakill on the mooks, Captain Thor puts a mag in (no hicap winder at least) then for some reason slaps the optic on his gun, and probably loads more that I've instantly forgotten, much like the rest of the film.

 

So no, not a fan.

A good gun film has the main person raid an arms cash,  fill up a bag that's too heavy for real life and never uses any of the contents for the rest of the film.

 

It's a magic formula....
