Re: Movies and tv series with realistic gunfights.

The Wire was fairly realistic and unromantic in its depictions of gunfights. The episode "Stray Rounds" comes to mind.

I think the gunfight in Tombstone comes the closest to the historical record, at least in terms of duration. Most of the versions of Wyatt Earp that I've seen have stretched out the battle into oblivion, when in fact it unfolded in less than a minute.
