My movie was a disappointment but the opening scene in "Inglorious Bastards" is an absolute gem.
Lord of War was the first thing that came to mind.
Unfortunately the opening scene in Earthquake is probably the best part of the movie now days especially with the great John William score but back in 1974-75 it was a big event on the big screen especially backed by the gimmicky sensurround, the movie in todays standards has not held up well with some really hokey special effects and bad editing but it is still a hoot to watch and some of the effects even today hold up well years before CGI was in full force.
28 weeks later ... i was exhausted watching this the first time. My first thought was Holy Shit that's only the opening, there's still 90 mins to go lol
I'll nominate The Revenant. Love that movie.
Some good nominations in here. I second Saving Private Ryan, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Up!, Full Metal Jacket, and Inglorious Basterds.
Gladiator starts with a bang, too. As does Gangs of New York. Awesome opening scene.
DOA by Takeshi Miike. All his movies are hectic, but this opening scene is amazing.
The Way of the Gun
Super troopers opening is all time
Guardians of Galaxy 2 had a great opening scene
Been mentioned already but Full Metal Jacket
Pulp Fiction, Casino, Dark Knight, Saving Private Ryan etc
For those who haven't seen it - The Way of the Gun opening scene
Certainly gets your attention, to bad the rest is crap.
The Hangover I think 3, the giraffe under a bridge.
Can't go past this cracker
I don't know that Full Metal Jacket can be topped for impact. OP may have nailed this thread in the first post
I'm ashamed that I neglected to mention that.
"Fire and wind come from the sky, from the Gods of the sky. But Crom is your God, Conan. Crom and he lives in the Earth."
My personal favourite.
The opening is intense.
It is brilliant.
