In my 300-post review I promised a top ten of my favourite firefights on film (TV series will have to wait until another time)
#10 The Wild Bunch (Final Shootout)
Peckinpah gave us a completely new way of doing westerns (and firefights) in this film. The opening shootout sets the scene but this one is a masterpiece of mayhem
#9 Appleseed (Opening vs. Droids)
Beautiful stuff and the only anime on the list. The first time I watched it I didn't realise until the end of the scene that I was watching it without subtitles: I just had to rewatch the whole thing from the start
#8 Where Eagles Dare (Stairwell)
Super cheesy stuff from Eastwood who probably sets some kind of killcount record here. Is the twin MP40s too much? Who cares!
#7 Proof of Life (Tecala Rescue)
A nicely executed attack with a small team. Unusually for the list they try stealth at the start. Bonus points for good camouflage and using smoke!
Doubtless you'll have your own ideas, and this is a perfect topic for conversation over a few pints.
