Classic Action Scene: The Matrix Lobby Shoot Out

This still stands up today as one of the greatest shoot outs of all time. It’s funny, I remember the first time I watched The Matrix I thought it was just OK, but when I watched it again I liked it more and now I consider it a total classic.
The interesting thing about this scene is it was blamed for influencing the Columbine massacre, as most movies are blamed for people’s actions. Because of this they toned down the gun violence in the sequels and focused more on the martial arts. To me this is still the best action sequence of the series with some mind blowing stunts and gun-play.
