I just had a little re-watch of Lenzi's NIGHTMARE CITY (1980) , and I like the way it wastes virtually no time in getting down to the action... there's barely a minute of exposition after the credits, before the mayhem starts

any other films that don't bother with long intros and just go for broke? (good movies can count too)

I suppose there are films that have a hectic/frantic opening scene as a kind of prologue, and then the long intro to the film proper begins... but I'm not really talking about that

Star Wars Episodes III & IV probably did it the best for me. Having a movie start literally right in the middle of a battle scene with guns blazing and screams of the dying just gets my juices flowing.  Cheers

The Dawn of the Dead remake from 2004 doesn't play around.  The $hit hits the fan within the first few minutes.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
