Look, no matter who you are, you have to admit that arnie is brilliant at that sort of thing. That said, better than that, I love this:


Seriously, 4 barrelled rocket launcher? firing an M60 one handed? taking out 50 bad guys, all of whom look suspiciously like the same 5 guys being recycled with different facial hair? Arnie at his best.

I have to say that I think Arnie isn't good at that sort of thing. My fav action sequence is the end of Bad Boys 2 (from 'this shit just got real' to the end) It has a nice blend of shooting, humour and vehicle chases, with a nice bit of gore in the landmines.

Do not disallusion yourself brothers, today we die, our bodies broken and our souls shattered, we will be remembered as corpses on a battlefield.Raise hell my brothers for one day our great Father will hear of our struggle, and he will be honoured to call us his Sons. In death our Glory shall become eternal.' Karik Farron, 1st Lord of the Dark Scorchers at the Fall of Kempar.

I love the first real battle scene in 300 where Leonidas breaks out in front of his troops and hits that one dude 3 times in a row, once in the air no less.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

no kidding, that scene was my favorite also

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

The train station scene from 'The Untouchables' is a classic.

It would be perfect if it did not lack the awesomeness of Morpheus and his glasses, The best action sequence in the Matrix has to be any part where Morpheus is fighting, he is just so much cooler than Trinity or Neo.
