10 of the Best: Action Movie Guns

Arguably one of  the hardest lists ever; it was originally going to be “Weapons” in which case the lightsaber would obviously be number 1 but as it is, I’m keeping it as guns only.






1. The Predator’s shoulder laser – Predator

2. Atchisson Assault Shotgun/AA-12 AKA “Omaya Kaboom” – The Expendables


3. Springfield M1911-A1 – Castor Troy’s awesome golden guns from Face/Off

4. Cobra Assault Cannon – Robocop “I Like it!”

5. .44 Magnum – Dirty Harry

6. M2 .50 caliber machine gun – Rambo (2008)

7. The Railgun – Eraser

8. M134 handheld Minigun – Predator

9. M240 Flamethrower/M41A Pulse Rifle combo – Ripley’s weapon at the end of Aliens

10. Telephoto Rifle – The Jackal

Honourable Mention: Zorg ZF-1 – The Fifth Element
