    From the moment Clint Eastwood and Richard Burton arrive at the Schloss Adler until they reach the airfield is one epic action sequence. Where Eagles Dare.

    The single take scene at the end of Children of Men is a bit special, superbly choreograped

    If you've got the proper sound setup, the opening to Master and Commander is utterly brilliant (just make sure it's plugged in correctly, fuck you, etc.)

    The DTS soundtrack for that opening battle is amazing.

    This, or the end of Jurassic Park.
    The end? Surely you mean the first T-Rex attack? - that's one of the best scenes in cinema.

    The start of Goldeneye is probably my favourite Bond one - right from the jump off the dam, through to him riding the motorcycle off the cliff, diving into the plane and pulling it out of the dive is cinematic awesomeness, and still marks the only time I've seen almost an entire (UK) cinema break out into spontaneous cheers and applause.

    The originator of Parkour in the beginning of Casino Royale, fucking epic, and all of the Matt Damon Bourne films.

    Is it supposed to be like this?

    Pretty much all of Armor Of God



    Possibly my favourite Jackie Chan film, and he nearly died making it.

    I totally called it.

    My vote is for the helicopter chase scene in the same film. The fact that it's a real helicopter going under that bridge just blows me away every time.

    T2 is probs the best action movie ever, it's got it all.

    The correct answer is of course the opening to Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    Some great scenes in District 13 Ultimatum.

    The film doesn't get a lot of positive reviews but they fair crack along and I am a fan of these sorts of flicks.

    Cyril Raffaelli is awesome in the opening fight scene.

    The show down in the house of blue leaves from Kill bill is pretty good. Actually it has the fight with the Crazy 88, Gogo Yubari and O-Ren Ishii all of which are fairly awesome in their own way and almost set pieces in their own right.

    On Saving private Ryan I always think the closing battle is rather intense as well as the opening section.

    I know its a bit of a CGI fest, but the end of The Avengers is worth a mention as well. Especially once hulk starts fucking shit up.
