I really liked the last shootout in Way of the Gun. Very realistic and practical gun handling.

Gave myself the trouble of reading to the end.

And I'd go for "Last man standing". That 1911 pair is almost as much as an actor in the movie as Bruce Willis.

In the new John Wick 2 trailer you see him with a suppressed 1911 at 1:03 and an unsuppressed 1911 at 1:15.

Looking forward to seeing this movie loved the first one.

How about "Longmire"? He caries a 1911A1 with bone grips. It looks like a toy in his big ham slab hand!

Regarding "Last Man Standing", I've mentioned it somewhere before, but I get a laugh everytime now when watching it. Willis has just had his car banged up by the gang, and has checked into the hotel. As he is readying himself to confront the gang for the first time, he is shown putting his guns and shoulder holsters on......backwards! I never noticed it when I first watched the movie, but in re-run DVD, you can clearly see that his pistols' butts are backwards. I do not know HOW you could do that, but it never got caught during editing. Take a look next time you watch it. When he has the first shootout, though, things are the way they are supposed to be.

Any body mention The Shadow. The Phantom wasn't bad either.

I really enjoy the Jesse Stone movies, with Tom Selek, playing Chief Stone Of Paradise Ma. Police. They are made in the best traditions of Film Noir. Chief stone carries a commander, & you see it a lot of it. Also his 12 ga. house gun.

I agree ... great series of movies. I just added the latest one (2015) to my netflix queue ... I think it is the only one made since the start of the Blue Bloods TV series.

There are many good movies featuring 1911's, but the first one that came to mind for me was Last Man Standing.

I went to see John Wick 2 last night. The gun handling was really impressive and you could tell that Reeves trained hard to get that right (see the YouTube videos of him training in 3-Gun). All different types of guns were used (Glocks, HK, 1911, etc) and the Kimber 1911's 7rd capacity was actually a joke line in the movie. Having said all that, the chamber checks, reloads, movement, etc was top notch. There was quite a bit of 1911 work in the movie and it was done well.

The round and body count in the movie rivaled the Battle of Gettysburg, but my wife even enjoyed it!

Cheers

Thanks. It looks like a very comprehensive list, and anyone looking for good "1911" entertainment should go right down the list and watch them all!
