You're right about the numbers, but the way it's staged it feels like they could pull it off.

Maybe if we combine Michael Mann and John Woo into one region, that would be more fair. I don't think either have eight entries on their own.

Come on guys, you're forgetting The Kingdom. The final shootout is great. The FBI team and their Saudi escort chase after the terrorists to get heir man back, and there's a wild shootout. Jamie Fox runs all over the place, empties and picks up three separate guns, and clears the building with the Saudi officer. Jenifer Garner clears the rest of the building, and ends up in a one-sided fight against a man twice her size. Concealment isn't cover, and Garner nearly gets blown up by a friendly grenade, ammo runs out (in a deleted scene, Fox's AK runs out and he's reduced to throwing plates), and the Jamie Fox/Ashraf Barhom duo empties three guns each in the shootout.

Heat is great.

You can't forget the lobby shootout from the original Matrix

The Wild Bunch: Only seen the shootouts on youtube, but man, what a body count. Everything dies, it's not pretty.

Ronin: Good shootouts, but the movie's second half was pretty bad.

The Wild Geese was terrible. No one even pretends to aim, nor does anyone reload.

The Terminator films always impressed me with how, despite being sci-fi killer robot films, the gunplay was very good. People still reload and stuff.

The Veteran, of which I've only seen the final shootout, seems really good aside from the weak guns shots

Any links to good shootouts on youtube?

Some great movie gunfights mentioned here. I'd too draw people's attention to The Veteran, which is an often overlooked film with some great action.

While not really gunfights in the traditional hollywood sense, I always liked the exchanges of fire in the excellent 'Narc': they're loud, scary and over very, very quicky. Busta Rhymes opening up with his SMG made me jump out of my seat the first time I saw it.

No Country For Old Men has a similar, no frills feel with it's gunfights and should get a mention I reckon.

The Way of the Gun. This entire movie is a must-watch if you care about authenticity in movie gunfights. It's brilliant. Everything they do in this movie makes you go ooh and aah. Not because it's fancy John Woo/Matrix nonsense, but because it's authentic like nothing you've seen. A former SEAL consulted for this movie.

Spartan. A very authentic depiction of a (former?) special operations soldier doing wet work for the government. Not a lot of action, but the little there is of it I can guarantee you will enjoy.

Sinners and Saints has some of the more realistic gun fight scenes...except when cars are still bullet proof.
