What do you think the best opening set pieces are?  I was just killing time watching Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom.  The opening sequence in the restaurant - chasing the diamond around on the floor, then running along behind the gong while being shot at - has always been a favourite of mine.  I guess you can't go past the size of the Star Destroyer chasing Leia's ship in the opening of Episode IV either!  Seems every Bond film wants to take the opening set piece to it's limits too.  Spectre's was great but so OTT.  

What do you think?

Star Wars, Episode IV

I watched it again recently getting ready for the new film. It still impresses and makes me smile.

FOr me it is Casino Royale. The old man (playing a noob agent) got absolutely smashed by the goon.
