Classic western The Wild Bunch contains the best shoot-out in movie history, according to a British film magazine poll.

The ultra-violent finale of legendary director Sam Peckinpah's 1969 film - which stars William Holden, Warren Oates and ERNEST BORGNINE - is widely considered to be a landmark sequence in action cinema.

The Wild Bunch sequence beat similarly high-octane scenes from Hong Kong mob movie Hard Boiled, which came second, and third-placed 1995 heist classic Heat, in the EMPIRE survey.

The top 10 is:

2. HARD BOILED (1992)

3. HEAT (1995)

4. Once Upon a Time in the West (1968)

5. The Untouchables (1987)

6. The Matrix (1999)

7. Leon (1994)

8. STATE OF GRACE (1990)

9. Open Range (2003)

10. COP LAND (1997). (KL/TS/GES)

10. COP LAND (1997).
