Also, I made 19 more screenshots so this doesn't happen again, and I just have to upload them next time. :D

4 more pics after work if no right guesses, then 4 tomorrow morning, if still nothing.

Four more, as promised.

I swear, half these, if you know who's in the picture, you should at least get close. Until the next batch, though, the actors are kind of ambiguous. (Like fire guy reminds me of Agent Smith and the blonde woman reminds me of that woman in Jurassic Park.)

Note: Google Image Search is apparently very bad with these screenshots. :D I've only gotten matches on 3 of them, 2 of them not really indicative of anything, and 1 linking to this actual thread. :D

Through some rather obtuse googling, I got Revelation. Also called Apocalypse II: Revelation.

Really? When I tried googling some of the images I got some... unrelated... results

I survived spaMEGAdon and all I got was this lousy signature joke.

Image googling the woman resulted in pics of Conan O'Brien and Hugh Laurie, for some reason.

I didn't google the image. I googled Willie Spin(from the W. Spin** label, and the Willie's Wonder and Willie's Computer Renewal) and an autocompleted result was Willie Spino. Which directed me to the character in question and I just watched a trailer for the movie to double check.

...um.

Wait, this is the "Name that Film" thread... Image

...hmmmm...

Not Serenity; Mal used an 'undetermined' AA platform on a post-mount emplacement, not a 'turret' mounted in the back of a six-ton...

...wait, that was Firefly's pilot, not the subsequent movie.

ANYWAYS, this still screams "animated cut-scene from game" to me, so I can't quite think of anything, even taking into account the...er, grenade launcher? sitting on the tailgate...

Hope this helps someone else...

Just for the record, you got it right. :) I was going to hint at 1999 for the year next. I was also going to say the main actor was the one bleeding (Jeff Fahey), but if you figured out who the blonde woman was (harder to do), it would be much easier to get it. I was also going to hint that Howie Mandel and Mr. T were in the sequels. Here are the rest of the pictures, sorted in order of easiness of guessing, for anyone interested.

I was thinking it would be gotten at various points later: cross burning (maybe), O.N.E., Nick Mancuso, the guillotine being obvious, and finally "Day of Wonders" probably being the easiest to Google.

...um, I think what you're referring to is actually a muzzle-flash.


But congrats, Smeg!

Is he supposed to be firing in the first pic? I thought it was something searchlight-y.

Might be way too obscure, but then again I might be wrong.

If it was made in 1984, then a bit of Wiki-ing has I think led me to an answer

And you would be correct. A seriously dark movie for kids...who want nightmares.
I wasn't sure if it was too hard but when I looked up pictures from the movie I saw someone mention that it had been on some US network in the past.
