    I'm kind of barbecue drunk, but I've just watched the start of Saving Private Ryan and thought "fuck me"

    So what's your favourite action sequence? Can't say I'm bothered about your replies but I just got excited about the start of Saving Private Ryan and felt I had to do something.


    XBONE SUXXXXSS!!!!

    That's supposed to say set piece. Not sure what happened there.

    The motorcycle chase in Terminator 2.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    The scene where they attack Leo's house in Miller's Crossing....ignoring the fact that a Thompson would have run out of bullets mid scene :)

    The opening fight scene in Gladiator. Remember that was the first time I saw anything like it at the cinema. Zimmer's score in that added to the awe.

    This, or the end of Jurassic Park. And despite all of the film's flaws the first fight between Bane and Batman in TDKR is pretty good. Also the fight with the Queen in Aliens.

    Saw your thread title and was coming into post 'Saving Private Ryan'.

    Also the start of the modern 'Dawn of the Dead'. Proper roller coaster that one. Especially at the time.

    FCUTA!

    That part in Flight of the Navigator when David tries to control Max the ship for the first time. Intense!

    The gunfight at the start of The Proposition is intense and very in your face.

    The car chase in The Matrix Reloaded is a highlight of a fairly ordinary film.

    Probably looks a bit naff now but at the time the lobby gun fight in the first Matrix. It was my first DVD and I just kept watching that scene on repeat.

    now my favorite is probably that single take lobby scene in Tom Yung Gun (Tony Jaa) or the mech bit in District 9

    Corridor fight scene in Inception, probably the first and only time I have felt like standing up and clapping at how epic it was, more so knowing none of it was CGI.

    Great for all of the 30 seconds it took me to identify the re-hashed Zulu chants. Pfff.

    On that note, the street gunfight in Heat, sounds almost like perfection.

    The hallway fight in The Raid.

    The kidnapping in Way of the Gun.

    The delta snipers defending the blackhawk in Blackhawk Down.

    The first fight with the aliens in Aliens.
