If you like guns, you probably appreciate great gun movies. I’m talking about war movies with great battle scenes, crime dramas with epic shootouts, gun slinging westerns and even documentaries.
We’ve covered plenty of awesome gun movies in earlier articles, but Netflix doesn’t have every movie ever made in its catalog, and it has surprisingly few of the “greats” such as Heat, Red Dawn (don’t even talk to me about the remake), The Wild Bunch, or even Tombstone. Since so many people watch Netflix these days, why not pick some of the best movies worth watching?
We scoured the current titles streaming on Netflix to find the 10 best gun movies. Here are our picks, in no particular order:
- <h2>Shooter</h2>Based on gun guy Stephen Hunter’s fantastic novel “Point of Impact”, <a href= "http://www.on-netflix.com/shooter/694" target= "_blank">Shooter</a> is an entertaining film full of all types of firearms. The film’s main character is a former Marine Scout Sniper, and there’s plenty of long range shooting. Like nearly every movie, save those made by Michael Mann, it features plenty of gun-related technical mistakes (i.e., treating a Barrett M82 like it’s a bolt-action), but they aren’t bad enough to ruin the story. They reportedly even taught Marky Mark to shoot for the movie, no word on what effect that had on his previous anti-gun positions. There aren’t many movies out there featuring a .408 CheyTac sniper rifle.
