    Whenever the hero runs out of ammo they always manage to find a stash of bullets that fit their gun.

    Also, in fights, it's always fists against fists or knives against knives or guns against guns.
    The only realistic scene was when Harrison Ford shot the samurai in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
    The best 'fight' scene ever.

    Those scenes where a character is walking down the street and a car draws up, usually with a baddie in the back, who winds the window down and talks to them as they are walking.

    The road is always clear of parked cars, skips or wheelie bins or whatever, so the car doesn't have to pull out and around and back in to continue the conversation.

    Also the driver manages to keep the car going at walking pace for however long the conversation takes, without stalling or kangarooing.

    Or he/she throws the empty gun at the attacker and makes a run for it.

    Baddy takes aim at goody who's lying helplessly on the floor. A shot rings out but it's the baddy who's been shot (close-up of baddy looking surprised) either by someone who was previously left for dead or by the goody's colleague who has arrived in the nick of time.

    German officers speak to each other in heavily accented English.

    Good call. If ever there was a scene that was done to death (no pun intended ), that's it.

    Another car cliché I don’t think has had a mention is where an intended victim (who has slighted his organisation) of a hit, usually in mafia/OC movies, sits in the front seat of a car with some homicidal sociopath directly behind him - even he, as well as the audience, knows he’s getting malkied.

    Or by the baddie's girl who's had enough after years of abuse. She's standing there with a huge smoking gun and holding it in both hands like a kid.

    During a battle scene in every war movie, one of the central characters will die....but really slowly. Slowly enough to deliver a heart-wrenching monologue to his best buddie for 5 minutes, conveniently enough right in the middle of a lull in the noise of the battle. Like the other side say "stop shooting for a minute, that dude is saying some really moving last words".

    Somebody sets off an explosion and starts to walk off before it blows up. As they are walking away in slow motion behind them the explosion occurs and they don't flinch one bit.
