Shoot Out Show Downs
Catch .44 is a very clever new film that revolves entirely around an incredibly tense shootout (interspersed with flashbacks etc). I'm not going to post any clips from this shootout showdown because it'll ruin it, but needless to say it's brilliant!
Cinema is stuffed with some serious shoot out show downs. From the heart stopping The Good, The Bad And The Ugly to The Matrix. These always proove to be tense - a gun pointed at each character; who'll die, who'll survive and who'll shoot first?
So what are your favourite Shoot outs in film?

The Good The Bad And The Ugly remains the best and a hugely influential scene on cinema on a whole in terms of editing, music and pacing.
However, remember John Woo in his prime...A Better Tomorrow, The Killer and Hard Boiled...impossible to pick specific scenes, but the church scene in The Killer and the teahouse at the opening of Hard Boiled stick in the mind.
And, of course, Woo's spiritual father in these matters:
The shoot out following the heist in Michael Mann's Heat is jaw-droppingly impressive. As good as the others mentioned in this thread are, it's still my favourite of all movie shoot outs.
