Small Details Fans Noticed In Action-Adventure Movies

It's hard to not have fun during a classic action-adventure movie. Whether it's an installment of the Indiana Jones franchise or a one-off hit like Hook, these flicks have all the thrills and daring us movie-goers could ask for. On top of the excitement, though, it's the little details that make action-adventures so fun to watch. Stuff like the villains of National Treasure staying at the Watergate Hotel adds cheeky flavor. In Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, you may have never noticed that a hand-shaped cloud forms in the sky after Elizabeth falls into the ocean with the cursed medallion. If you're looking for some historical accuracy, keep an eye out for the booby trap blades in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, which deploy in a way that would be deadly for the Crusaders' enemies!

Check out this list of amazing details from our favorite action-adventure movies, and don't forget to vote up your favorites.

    Alan Yells "Roll The Dice" In 'Jumanji'

    From Redditor /u/swimtothemoon27:

    I’ve watched this movie so many times since I was a kid and can quote pretty much the entire movie. Well this time watching, there was something I had never noticed before. After Alan rolls the dice for the first time and he gets the message, he looks at Sarah and says, “until the dice read 5 or 8.... what’s that mean?” Both look confused and worried. As he is being sucked into the game Sarah is screaming and he is yelling. All the times before I thought he was just yelling and calling for Sarah. This time I noticed he actually yells, “Roll the dice!”
