I know. The Godfather is not a cop movie. But a pretty key cop gets shot in the throat and hauntingly gasps for breath so it makes the list. We all knew Michael had the stones to follow through even though James Caan's Sonny doubted him, but we may not have expected him to be so calm as he shoots two men in their heads and necks. Then again, he was a soldier so maybe I shouldn't have been too shocked. This film is considered by many, to be one of the best of all time. More specifically, this scene is considered by some to be one of the best scenes in the movie. It is the crucial turning point for Michael as there is no going back after this. And we know more blood will be shed as he works his way up to the head office of the criminal enterprise.
