Gunplay / Gun Fu heavy movies, games, shows, anime, wads, whatever?

Recommended Posts

So yeah, I am wondering what do honest folk on Doomworld say about Gun Fu and in general mediums doused in stylish, unneccesary but aesthetically pleasing gunplay. I am currently perusing through Hong Kong Blood Operas again (used to be a big fan as a kid, am a fan now again), and I wonder what games should I play, movies I should watch, or basically what X i can Y after those (or right now) that emphasize themselves on super-stylish gun fights, "kicking around corners and exterminating mooks" or duels between gunslingers, whatever. Kinda like John Wick, but bit less realism and more hopping around and dashing.

 

Platforms for comparison (and stuff I did already too much):

-Max Payne (both games of course)

-John Wick

-Hardboiled

-Matrix (the movies)

-The Specialists (mod for hl1)

 

bigger emphasis on combat style, not kill count :P

I think Desperado may fit your description. It is with Banderas as a protagonist. Just so you know, he opens a classic guitar case, it seems like a guitar case with a guitar inside, but the guitar is cut half and under it are hidden tons of uzis, pistols and other weapons.

Another one might be Romeo must die, with Jet Li, though I saw more kung fu than guns in it.

 

I don't know if these are considered good, but they are the ones I can remember from my childhood, when they used to play them sometimes on tv.

I would watch Black Lagoon than if that's what you want for shooter animes. One of the characters is my favorite in the show and is just a badass.

 

Also the action scenes are pretty good, It's just an action anime in the style of a more mature Cowboy Bebob than anything. Here's the Opening if you want.

This thread calls to me like an action hero through a windowpane of glass :p

 

A Better Tomorrow

The Killer

Equilibrium (gun-fu is codified as a combat style)

 

Double Action Boogaloo (more emphasis on stunts and scoring)

Stranglehold (apparently takes place after Hard Boiled)

Action Half-Life and Action Half-Life 2 (though sadly I haven't seen any servers)

Wildweasel's Terrorists! mod

Ahh, exactly my favorite kinda stuff.

 

I did watch the first two films, have yet to see the third.

 

Planned to get Strangehold, played Double Action Boogaloo a lot (I think I still have it on Steam), and yet a lot of people recommend Action Half life (2)

 

Seeing you are into HKBO as well, I recommend "The Opera" mod for hl1 (directly inspired by HKBO, its in the game, its in the name, whole thing is doused in it), altough no one plays it on multiplayer (I think, its a old mod afterall) the mook shootings are entertaining :D

Gunsmith Cats has some good gunplay in it (Anime).

 

Shoot 'Em Up is nothing but one crazy action scene after another (Even if a chunk of it isn't terribly realistic).
