Every action-adventure movie worth its salt has at least a couple of treasure room scenes. The best movies about treasure hunting all send their heroes into a dark room, often only lit by torchlight, to face off with beasts, monsters, and traps all in the name of scoring untold riches. More often than not, the hero only escapes with their life, but in some circumstances, they strike it big.
The treasure room scene really is a classic of the action-adventure genre, but you'll see variations of these scenes across genres. That being said, these are the classic, real-deal treasure sequences that often end with everything falling apart as our heroes race to see sunshine as the world falls down around them.
Which one of these treasure room scenes is the most dangerous? That's for you to decide.
