Most realistic movie firefight
Nonsense to everything any of you have said to this point.
The most realistic firefight BY FAR has to be when the Americans launch their assault on the Japanese position on Guadalcanal in Thin Red Line. Just try not to flinch when the tracers go hissing overhead.
Much better than Saving Private Ryan.
And that is objective fact.Posted 3 years agoace_sparkyMember
For me the most realistic sounding firefight has to be the scene in ‘Heat’, as an ex service man with combat experience this does it for me. Also like the two scenes in black hawk down where one guy gets deafened by his mate firing too close and another guy gets an expended (very hot) case down his top, both of which have happened to me!Posted 3 years agoHadgeMember
Non of them as they’re all so unreal. Firstly, any firefight indoors non of the shooters are blinking when they’re firing the guns. Really? Trust me I was shooting for years and you fire a gun in an enclosed space and your ears know it! It’s deafening and your reaction is to wince. Secondly muzzle flash. Because they use “soft blanks” you don’t see any or very rarely and again, in an enclosed space it’s very very bad with big calibre guns and semi auto/auto weapons. Thirdly is recoil. They shoot a gun and it doesn’t move. Really? I’d love to have had those when shooting in my competitions pmsl. Anyone who shoots knows the guns recoil and they just don’t on any shooting scene so sadly I shrug my shoulders at them all basically.Posted 3 years ago
BUT the opening scene on Saving Private Ryan to me conveys how horrible, scary and brutal a battle scene can be and is very distressing IMO and it’s the only scene I congratulate and think wow.allmountainventureMember
Heat, Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk down are all equal. Heat gets it due to the sound, sweat, wounding (rather than cinematic kill shots) and the realism of the firing actions and reactions.
However, none come close to the Aliens nest gun battle. Particularly the dithering bad decision making of the CO.
Cant find the scene but here is the trailer.
