Your votes are in, and now the brackets for the Gun Movie Throwdown are set. Here are the four final brackets. The individual throwdowns will commence on Thursday, with the 1 seeds taking on the 8 seeds in each bracket. The way winners will be decided is simple: of the two movies, I’ll present my opinion for the strengths/weaknesses of each one, then we’ll let the commenters decide which they think should move forward. Here are the final brackets.


  1. Saving Private Ryan
  2. Black Hawk Down
  3. The Dirty Dozen
  4. Enemy at the Gates
  5. Red Dawn (original)
