Olympus Has Fallen
Many of the nominees here can be called throwbacks, but none more so than Olympus Has Fallen. This movie is meatheaded and stupid Die Hard ripoff, but director Antoine Fuqua knows the value of a headshot and he shoots the hell out of this one sequence. The bullet hits seem to have a real impact in this film and whole scene has a battle-like intensity to it. It’s the only scene here with the scope, strength, and violence I was looking for in this category.
