Best Movie Firefight Scene

It's Manly Trivia Time:
WHAT IS THE GREATEST HOLLYWOOD
FIREFIGHT SCENE OF ALL TIME?
A. 'SAVING PRIVATE RYAN' D-Day landing?
B. 'CLOVERFIELD' grunts vs towering mega-monster?
C. 'DEVILS REJECTS' Otis, Baby and Spaulding's last stand?
C'mon? Take a seat, hoss!
In my humble amateur cinemaphilic opinion, the downtown Los Angeles lead-brawl in 'HEAT' (1995) takes the uncontested gunpowder flavored cake. It is, without question, 'THE SH!T'. Kilmer, De Niro and Sizemore wreak friggin' havoc against the outgunned PD (no offense, LE Brethren!) for nearly 10 minutes of pure mayhem. The sound, weapons handling and gritty action are beyond intense.
If you have not seen this, do so NOW!
