Anyone have any suggesstions on good action/drama movies, and specifically ones with the Bestest self defense (in the context of this Forum) scenes?
I'm not interested in movies that just have shoot outs with the endless 'Hollywood Mags'. I'm interested in realistic (for Hollywood anyway) scenes or stories where good tactics and realistic weapons are used.
Links would be appreciated, but the name of the Movie or Series (if TV) is appreciated.
The last scenes of "Reservoir Dogs" and "True Romance" are pretty realistic in terms of how fast and ugly a shootout would be. Not really "self defense" per se...
Oh, and there is some bad language in these. Also some violence.

I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
Here's the "bestest" defense of others scene... AKA "The Travis Solution" originally posted here byMike 1956, IIRC.
It could be worse!
Note: Strong language in all attachments.

Plus there was a great Mozambique in a Miami Vice episode, "Calderone's Return (Part I)". Unfortunately NBC wants to milk a few more nickels out of the show so it's not on You Tube any more.
