I'm not saying it's the best, but the opening to 28 weeks later was pretty incredible.

There Will Be Blood was also exceptional.

I think Way of the Gun is the answer people with a Scarface poster on their bedroom wall would give.

For best, i would nominate the opeining scene for Apocoaypse Now, with The Doors soundtrack in background.

Tarantino's films always have great opening scenes.  The "Like A Virgin" rant in Reservoir Dogs, the start of the cafe robbery in Pulp Fiction, Hans Landa interrogating the guy hiding the Jewish family in Inglorious Basterds, all really great openings

 

The bank robbery to start The Dark Knight is a great one too.  And I always get a kick out of the start of Get Shorty when Ray Bones steals Chili Palmer's coat
