    I always loved the "cop rolls" that Don Johnson did on Miami Vice...
    Ya know... Run, do a roll onthe ground and flip back up. Then shoot

    As for a movie... I gotta keep thinking...

    There have been so many over the years it is hard to pick just one. I'll have to go with Extreme Prejudice with The Wild Bunch a close second.

    Yeah, that's a good one. For realism, I think the shootout scene in "The Shootist" with Hugh O'Brian in the early barroom scene. In that scene, Hugh O'Brian ejects a sore loser from the gambling tables. The ejected customer is thrown out, draws his gun and wheels aropund and goes back in. He fires a few wild shots as Hugh O'Brian settles his account with a little pocket .38.

    Ok, mine's pretty weak, but I liked the end of the Man Who Shot Liberty Valence. Not exactly a huge ammo spending scene, but I got a kick out of it.

    Ronin comes to mind. Some of the finest car chases as well.

    While the big shootemup scenes are "entertaining" I guess I like it when they try to make them as realistic as possible.Take MR&MRS Smith for example , All those agents coming after them and NOT ONE of them has the brains to say Hmmm they must be wearing body armour,Guess I'll make a head shot and end this horse manure scene

    Another vote for Heat. It was used in a Police traing class that I attended and the next one I taught I had the same movie to make some points. A few months later I was on vacation and just caught the video of the LA Bank shoot out and I asked why they were showing Heat on the TV. For Realism I loved Jodie Foster in Silence of the Lambs in the shootout scene. I also like Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours when the big dude comes at him with the big knife.
