Small Details Fans Noticed In Action-Adventure Movie Fight Scenes

List Rules
Vote up the details you never noticed before.

Whether it's Indiana Jones cracking his iconic whip or Captain Jack Sparrow swashbuckling with a sword, the fight scenes in our favorite action-adventure movies are as memorable as they are exciting. It's no wonder that these big screen brawls have some amazing small details, and thankfully for us, fans online have flagged a ton of them. In Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, for example, if you track Will Turner's storyline all the way back to The Curse of the Black Pearl, you'll notice that Will made the very sword Davy Jones uses to strike him down. In Night at the Museum, Larry flees in a panic when the exhibits start to come to life. You may not have noticed, though, that in the elevator there's a poster with the word "Spineless" on it. Some of these details even add a little humor. In Raiders of the Lost Ark, when one bad guy gets stabbed by another, the sword actually picks up a couple of pieces of fruit, as well.

Check out this list of small details fans spotted in action-adventure fight scenes, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!
