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.
