Hollywood's 10 Most Realistic Gunfights, No. 10-6

Hollywood's 10 Most Realistic Gunfights, No. 10-6

Dale Dye perhaps ushered in the modern era of proper tactical and weapons training for actors when he worked with Oliver Stone on Platoon. He's been doing the same thing ever since, and if you liked Saving Private Ryan because the actors actually looked like soldiers he is one big reason why. There are now a number of actors and directors who insist on realistic action scenes and weapons handling, but sometimes finding them can be a needle in a haystack. In this edition of the blog I will be covering what I think are the Top 10 Most Realistic Hollywood Gunfights. Not necessarily best, or most entertaining, but most realistic. I am deliberately not including military movies or movies based on actual events (Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Tears of the Sun, etc) for a number of reasons, not the least of which is later on this year I'm going to cover what I think are the 10 best war movies.

I'm sure many of you will agree with some of my choices here, and even more will tell me I'm wrong, or I forgot some cinematic gem. Take your best shot.
