Ingmorious basterds for mine. That whole scene is the most tense I've been in a movie theatre. Another already mentioned is scream. Was not expecting drew Barrymore to not make it more than a few minutes.

One not mentioned yet and left field considering the fact most of these are at least good movies with great openings, idiocracy. s**t movie but the opening was both funny and scarily accurate.

Cliffhanger is a great nomination by the OP.

First scene is a classic. Seen it many times...but I'm not sure I've ever actually seen the movie.

Commando has got to be up there. A couple of executions and then straight into a montage of Arnie eating ice cream and feeding deer with his daughter. Instantly hooked. 🤣

Casino Royale - A fantastic chase scene.

Terminator 2 - Arnie going into the bar.

Rear Window - Just perfectly sets the movie up.

V for Vendetta - What a speech.
