"Windtalkers" with Nick Cage, 2002 was the movie about
the Navajo Code Talkers during WWII.

The hand to hand combat scenes were so realistic they made
me squirm big time.

I can't remember the weapons-specific accuracy, but the brutality
of the battle scenes was really something.

"Saving Private Ryan" was also rather realistic in the violence depiction.

The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free
and good men die like dogs, for no good reason.

I can't believe Saving Private Ryan or the Band of Brothers series haven't been mentioned.

Okay...a little over the top, but it has what you need if you ever go into Mexico. (An AA-12).

Way of the gun was pretty interesting in the final gun battle.
A point of order Mr. chairman. It was Sam Pekinpah. He was showing ultra slow exploding squibs and people flying backwards before Woo was out of middle school.

I second "Heat". Won an Academy Award for sound I believe. I was always tired of sparks denoting every bullet hit and huge fiery explosions that affected nothing 10' away. Heat showed guys crumpling when shot as opposed to flying backwards and a shape charge used on an armored car blew windows out of cars for half a block.

"Proof of Life" was excellent in its portrayal of tactics as well.

I just can't take it seriously when the actor has no idea what a front-sight is, or when somebody goes flying back 15 feet after being shot and busts through a wall. I'm really trying to find a movie or documentary that showcases some real "operator" tactics.
Take some of the suggestions with a grain of salt. Some are violent but don't show real useful tactics.
I believe the basic political division in this country is not between liberals and conservatives but between those who believe that they should have a say in the personal lives of strangers and those who do not.

The Miami Vice remake. The part in the trailer house where the guy starts to talk and they shoot him in the head.
