The Greatest Cinematic Shootouts Series – Pt. 2 – Sam Peckinpah’s “The Wild Bunch” (1969)

This next installment of bullet riddled glory takes us back to 1969, again, long before the advent of CGI; this scene single-handedly revolutionized the fictional gun battle as we know it. The heavy use of squibs, visible blood, quick cuts, and slow motion were seldom used before this, but with the addition of them, Peckinpah was able to create an atmosphere of frenzied mayhem. Observe and enjoy the blazing action below.
