The Wind and the Lion.

When the arabs rode in to kidnap the girl and her son, shooting up the place.

Guy pulls a Webly, classic bullseye stance. Six Shots, six dead bandits, the click, guy says "Oh Damn" as they shoot him down.

I was watching "Magnum Force" last night and when Callahan goes down to the coroners office to look at all the dead bodies the coroner says about the pimp. "Who ever did this emptied a whole clip into him".

Who framed Roger Rabbit.

JK - +1 for Magnum Force, with a close second going to Sudden Impact.

Why hasn't anyone mentioned Paul Kersey?

Doesn't anyone know anything about .32 nickle plated S&Ws let loose on the streets of 1970's New York City? Shame. Shame.

Where is Charles Bronson when you need him?

I concur with warningshot ↑
That was the most powerful .32 S&W Long in the world! </sarcasm>

I don't know anything about it because he didn't have a nickel plated S&W but rather a Colt Police Positive in 32 new police (32 S&W) most likely. If you look at it in the movie, you will see it does not have the S&W style release, and it does not have a the same side plate.

Maybe it was Pulp Fiction,the guy comes out of the bathroom and fires point blank at a hitman and misses him with every shot.

Funniest scene in the movie and actually a accurate warning to every tinderfoot who thinks they can just pick up a double action revolver and blast away.

My memories so bad it was probably a semi auto.

48 hours was a great flick...I watched that when I was 8 when they didn't edit all tv movies. I love dirty harry(the movie...saw as a child too), magnum force doesnt compare in my opinion but dirty harry and the dead pool was a good one(did you know jim carrey was in that movie from 1989...you might not care either lol but some trivia for you he was the junkie in the video and liam nelson("The Grey") was his boss.

all that babble i will say magnum force's first scene on the plane was a dandy

Hannie Caulder; Ok, not double action revolvers, but with Raquel Welch as the Hero, who cares? Besides, it's fun watching her thumb the hammer!

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!

Not a movie but a current cable TV series called "The Walking Dead"

The highway patrolman/hero/leader of a group of survivors goes around slaying zombies with headshots every episode with a Colt Python.

I have always been a Smith and Wesson fan but watching it makes me want to go out and find an old Colt Revolver!

Death Wish

The first one. Bronson and a Colt Police Positive get the job done, and if memory serves, the action was fairly realistic.

I like Val Kilmer in "Thunderheart" who played an FBI agent investigating murders on an Indian Reservation. He had a couple of shootouts with his 2.5 inch Smith&Wesson K frame revolver. Those K frames look a bit big compared to a traditional J frame "snubby".

Magnum force is the best revolver movie. There is an old cop movie from the same year called Seven Ups with Roy Scheider. Quite a few revolver scenes including the final shoot out where the bad guy uses an N frame with either a four inch barrel or a 3 1/2 inch.
