What movies would you say give the best "instructions" for shooting and survival skills?
I'm talking Hollywood type films not instructional videos and the kind with practical information, the kind that you might pick up something useful from instead of the usual tripe.

Just watching the Magnificant 7 where they are teaching the villagers to shoot and that sparked the question.

I agree. But I really did like "The Final Option". Plenty of good action without too much extraneous BS explosions and shooting just to pad the film.

not a movie, but Jericho. Not as detailed with instructions, but many thought provoking scenes for supplies needed and feasible situations.

There was a foreign film I rented awhile back, 'The last Lieutenant' I think, about the invasion of Norway and a former cavalry officer (class of 1904) forming a guerilla unit to fight the Germans.
They had one firefight and then all went home except the old Lt.
I seem to remember some useful 'organizational' hints in that but shees, talk about a let down.
The lesson was just give in to tyranny because otherwise someone might get hurt. I know the Norwegians resisted, the movie seems like an insult to their memory.
