Ranking the Best Action Movies with Plenty of Guns in the 2000’s

I must say that compiling this list of the best gun-action movies released in the 2000s was no small task. You can find all kinds of weapons from the us government in these films.  Not that I’m lazy: There were so many great ones. Perhaps most of them had extensive shooting due to increased special effects technology? You will notice that most movies on my list have heavy arms usage. (Spoiler: I sneaked an Oscar award-winning film in there too)
Gone in 60 Seconds (2000)
Chances are, you came to hear of Nicholas Cage after this movie. It gained a fan page so huge that they decide to include him as a character in Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. In this classic, he teamed up with Angelina Jolie. Nicholas Cage played as a car thief. He had to steal 50 (high end) cars in under a day lest he loses his brother. He recruited old hands but with the police following his trails, it had to end in a massive shootout, taken from http://www.thegunsource.com/
X-Men (2000)
What comes to your mind when you hear X-Men? Wolverine, right? There’s more to this series. Even though all characters are unique in their own way, they were all genetic mutants. They didn’t discover their extraordinary powers until after puberty. They’re shunned upon by members if the society. They’re now tasked with protecting the world from Magneto, a fellow mutant who believes that humans and mutants cannot co-exist. One has to give way. Nostalgia at its best

The Transporter (2002)
We know that a movie’s fire when we see Jason Statham on the cast list. He’s starting in this one as and as you know, he’s never trigger-shy. In this film, Statham is an outlaw. He’s pushed to the corner and as a result, he resorts to turning up against a dangerous sect. Frank (Statham) is an underground courier hence the name Transporter. Throughout this action-drama film, he’s tasked with delivering various “controversial” packages.  No non-lethal weapons were use din this film for sure like the ones seen here.   Frank will deliver anything, anywhere, as long as you play by his three rules: You can never use real names, Instructions are cast on stones and cannot be altered whatsoever and that he will never peek into the package.
Rambo (2008)
The return of Rambo is showcased in this saga. Sylvester Stallone had been missing in action from 1988 and he returns as a Vietnam Veteran. He makes ends meet by transporting missionaries. He’s the captain of one of their boats. When Junta Soldiers (militia) capture these missionaries, he teams up with fellow mercenaries. They go on a suicidal rescue mission. I’ve never seen Rambo use up so many guns in one movie. They’ve even included a few flashbacks from First Blood.
Live Free, Die Hard (2007)
Unlike other action movies released in this period, Live Free Die Hard stays away from the cliché CGI fantasy and the actors use heavy guns. Just like in the good old days. John McLane (played by Bruce Willis) fights a mysterious figure. We see several engaging scenes where the mysterious figure tries to outshine John. The mysterious figure relies on technology whereas Bruce Willis swears puts his faith in guns.
