Some great movies mentioned here.
My favorite [that hasn't been mentioned] is Wasabi. It is a french film with Jean Reno playing a loner cop who is a former member of some security service for France and is brutal [yes, like Dirty Harry]. However, the fighting scenes are more funny than accurate: like the scene where he punches a man and he flies 15 feet backward. It is deliberately shot that way to be funny, not just stupid fight choreography.
Anyway, he doesn't carry a S&W model 29, but an 8+" barrel S&W .357mag [I forget if it was 686 or 686+] at the beginning, and a Taurus Raging Bull later.
I like Jean Reno and found this a fun movie with some great [humourous] action scenes. That is why Wasabi gets my vote!
Love is not the dying moan of a distant violin. Its the triumphant twang of a bedspring.
