Awesome / Ghost in the Shell

  • Near the climax of the 1995 Ghost in the Shell movie, we see Major Kusanagi taking on a light tank with nothing but an assault rifle and a pair of grenades (plus a late assist from Batou's "Standard-Issue Big Gun"). It's a thing of beauty that inspired many later action scenes, up to and including The Matrix's famous lobby shootout, and if anything it's better done than all of them.
  • During the above scene, Batou gets one when he proceeds to casually pump the tank full of holes with his big gun.
  • Let's face it...the Major is a walking CMOA all on her own.
