    Well now that you mentioned it.

    Shoot 'Em Up starring Clive Owen?

    Equilibrium starring Christian Bale.

    Collateral is a good movie too with Tom Cruise. Say what you will about Tom but I think he did a good job in that movie.

    Heat with Al Pachino and Robert DiNiro

    Hard Boiled with Chow Yun Fat

    those are my suggestions

    I really want to see "Shoot 'Em Up". I hear it was the most over-the-top movie ever created. When it comes to shoot 'em up movies, the more violence and less plot, the better.


    I really like all the Die Hard and Leathal Weapon movies. I recently saw Shooter, and that was pretty good.

    Any Clint Eastwood movie, but I really like the Dirty Harry movies. Also like the old war movies. The Dirty Dozen, The Enemy Below, etc..... Almost forgot about John Wayne!

    You know,........ you watch them today and you can tell they didn't spend much money making them, but back then they were great! Almost forgot Charles Bronson! Yep, I'll be 52 on May the 18th.

    John Wayne movies. Not as "shoot 'em up" as what you mentioned, but that's what I like.

    Shoot 'Em Up
    The Boondock Saints
    Equilibrium
    Black Hawk Down
    and my mind went blank. I'll probably add more to the list at some point.

    I think ya'll listed most of my favorites, so that makes it easy for me!
     
  19. For non stop action beginning to end I like The Rundown. Another of my favorites is Full Metal Jacket. BOOM BOOM you lon tine. The Alien vs Predator Requiem was good for a new movie. 28 days later for a zombie movie was ok. For non stop killin the Resident Evil movies are good.
