10 Most Intense Shootouts In Movie History

9. RoboCop - Shootout At The Cocaine Factory

Orion Pictures

Robocop is one of those movies that has a ton of shootouts in it. There's hardly a moment in the film where a gun isn't being fired either at a cop or by one, which makes it somewhat difficult to pin down the best gun battle of them all.

When it comes down to the most intense fight in the movie, you don't need to look any further than the scene where the titular hero stormed the cocaine factory to arrest Clarence Boddicker.

This is one of those '80s shootouts that really used the scenery to make things happen. Bad guys are lurking atop catwalks carrying automatic machine guns, but that hardly mattered when Robocop burst through the door. He took on a hail of gunfire, but that didn't slow him down in the slightest as he made his way through every goon in the place.

Cocaine dust spread through the air as Robocop gunned down a total of 17 bad guys. One injured thug accidentally wasted another fellow as he spasmed in death, but Robocop didn't kill Boddicker in the scene. His programming wouldn't allow it, which led to the arrest of the very man who killed him.
